Help choosing a wifi extender

I'm trying to decide what to buy to boost wireless signal in my house and provide wireless to the deadspots. I've found these two options:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-WPA281KIT-Powerline-Extender-Configuration/dp/B00ECBRGW8/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1405370845&sr=8-8

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Netgear-WN3000RP-Universal-Wi-Fi-Extender/dp/B0055Y6PUA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405370974&sr=8-1

I think the power line adapters are probably the better option as they won't just be repeating the signal but acting as an access point, but I can't tell if the ones above actually do this or just act as a booster as well?

Any advice or alternative options would be appreciated :)

I have both the TP LINK Powerlines and the Netgear extender. If you want to connect a laptop or a computer then I suggest getting a power line as they give you a direct connection to the home router. But if you want to use it on a phone or tablet then get the Netgear wireless extender, it boosts your current weak signal

I bought cheap wi fi extender from China on eBay for £12. Works fine for me. Guess if your streaming content something better may be needed.

Alternative option; forget repeaters, forget homeplugs and just buy an asus rt-n66u router. It will crush any walls.
