OK I'm ready to be shot down with this one - I know there have been some cheaper options out there recently, but this has the advantage of a known manufacturer, pass through and an extra adapter.
Usual blurb follows:

Product Description

For every purchase of this Powerline kit you can claim an extra adapter (DHP-306AV - QF 255614).


D-Link's PowerLine Homeplug AV Passthrough Starter Kit consists of two adapters that use standard electrical wiring to create or extend a network.

You can connect any device such as computers, routers, media players, gaming consoles or storage devices at speeds of up to 200 Mbps over electrical wires, making this medium ideal for streaming high quality HDTV signals and enjoying music and games anywhere in your house. Each adapter has an electrical socket built in, so you don't need to worry about running out of sockets!

Advanced technology built into these adapters makes them more resistant to electrical interference from other household appliances, so users can fully benefit from the maximum transmission speeds.

The adapters also include Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms to ensure a lag-free experience for delay-sensitive applications such as gaming or Internet TV.

All that is required for set-up is pushing a button on the side of the device. This also ensures secure transmissions between PowerLine adapters. In addition, these adapters are among the first in their category to comply with the European Union directive for office and domestic devices (EuP): when idle, they enter a standby mode that requires less than 1 Watt.

Cheers

I'm kind of interested in these as I really want the pass-through type but are almost twice as much as the other Ebuyer offer - though these are a decent make - can't decide.
#2
I know what you mean, but the pass through ones are not usually on offer, and this has three adapters
#3
Heat from me. 3 adaptors and passthrough = winner winner chicken dinner.

Errrr no. Go and find a TP LINK or Solwise deal

Why? Because they are better?

If you want pass through this is ~£21 per unit compared to the recent TP-Link of £19 per unit. Depends what you want.

If claiming the 3rd is easy then this is probably the best deal yet as your getting a quality brand.

I can't seem to find any deals for TP Link pass through units recently at £19 per unit. Plenty of non pass through's, so this is a deal, doubly so with the extra unit.

This looks pretty good actually - though why they couldn't save themselves and us the aggravation and just throw out some "One extra free!" twin packs plus one I don't know...

Anyone found anything better than these, or shall I order them? Either way have a little heat. Ideally I could use one that's a 'extension/multiplug' type (google 'piggy6' if you don't know what I mean), but they seem pretty pricey.

Just to let you all know that I received this yesterday. It works as expected (i.e. very well).
On the claim front, I noticed in the small print that the invoice needs to include the model number and serial number (which it doesn't). I have gone back to Ebuyer and requested another invoice. I'll let you know how I get on.

Cheers

Please do crikeymikey, I'm trying to decide between this and their £35 Extra Value ones.

OK - Ebuyer got back to me with this:

Thank you for your contact with our Customer Support Team.
As long as you print the full VAT invoice and write these details on there,
this should be fine.
I apologise for any inconvenience or annoyance caused.


As there is no contact for the d-link promotion other than the address to send the claim in to, I am going to have to try this. If the claim is rejected, then it will be returned.

Any joy, crikeymikey?

These are still on offer, and I posted this question on a different thread about Powerline adapters but no-one answered so I hope you don't mine my trying here:

I have Sky Broadband, using their router downstairs for wired and wireless networks. I want to connect 2-4 devices to a wired network upstairs. These Powerline units only have one port, but I have an old Netgear wireless G router (DG834G model) which I'm not using any more. If I bought these Powerline units, plugged the Sky router into one downstairs and the Netgear router into another upstairs, would I be able to connect 4 wired devices to my Sky broadband with the 4 ethernet ports on the Netgear router?

So an upstairs device would be connected: device > Netgear > upstairs Powerline > downstairs Powerline > Sky router.

Can the Netgear router work like that or am I stuck with one device plugged into one Powerline adapter?

Thanks

Hi DM

I'm not an expert, but I have tried this tonight:
I have an ADSL wireless modem/router which I have connected through the powerline adapters to another old modem router. This PC is connected wired directly to the old modem router. So in theory the answer is yes.

The only things you need to consider is that the adapters may have to be connected to the same ring circuit (a quick search on the internet is inconclusive). Also, you will need one of the ethernet connections to connect to the powerline adapter, which means that only three will be available for your wired devices.

I'm still waiting to hear about the free adapter as well. I think I saw this cheaper elsewhere now (Amazon?). Have to say I am well impressed with these adapters mind!

Hope this helps

Just checked and Amazon has the same ones for the same price but no mention of free extra adapter.

I've never seen anyone mention they should be on the same ring circuit. Hadn't crossed my mind. Good point though about 1 port being taken up by the adapter.

I've been keen to buy this or the Extra Value ones and trying to work out if the £32 difference was worth it. I've now seen that Ebuyer sell some Extra Value 200mbps ones with passthrough for £40, and that's sold it for me. I don't actually need a third adapter.

(BTW the reviews of the EV with passthrough mention someone using them on different ring circuits, so it should be fine.)

Cheers all, hope you get the free adapter with no problems and soon crikeymikey!

Got my free adapter today. It isn't a pass through one, but happy to get it all the same.
