And my problems is:
  1. Stuttering, lost connections on a couple of seconds
  2. Max speed is 50mbps, my provider gives me 80mbps, this is not big problem its ok for me, but stuttering is annoying.

TP-Link makes a lot of devices, so your description is a little ambiguous. Can you post a model number? Are you using this as a wired extender or WIFI source ?
 
Mostly its a bigger number. Not sure why they started doing this but I suspect it is related to a different type of powerline adapters on the market. The vast majority of powerline adapters on the market are based on the homeplug standard. The newest ones are based on av2-600 and av2-1200. They called them that when they first came out. There is another competeting powerline device that use a completely different protocol called G,hn (I think). These rate the speeds at 1000 and 2000 even though they are not actually that much faster than homeplug units.

I suspect because stupid consumer always buys the biggest number they homeplug guys changed the name of their devices. Maybe they should just rename them 5000 with no technical change and see how many idiots upgrade their devices.

It is really sad how stupid some people are.
