TP-Link AV2000 Powerline Adapter, Naturally, it houses some powerful technology, so the size makes sense, but it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. It’s top-heavy at 1.9 pounds and has a decent depth, which makes it quite obstructive in your plug socket, wherever you place it in your house.

Its size means that you shouldn’t be moving it around the house on a regular basis. The bulk is the price you usually have to pay to improve your network. The only other option is snaking a terribly long Ethernet cable throughout your house, which isn’t an ideal solution.

The most useful design choice unique to the TP-Link AV2000 is the addition of a plug socket on the front of the device.
The good thing is that the plug part of the adapter is at the top of the plastic, which means that only the bottom of the device sticks out. With a typical two or four-socket plug setup, all you have to do is plug the adapter into the topmost row of sockets to avoid any obstruction.
The Ethernet ports are also situated on the bottom of the device, but you can orient the adapter upside down so they don’t get in the way of any other sockets you may have already filled. Yet the most useful design choice unique to the TP-Link AV2000 is the addition of a plug socket on the front of the device.
