#3

No, but this is because it is the Comtrends that are not industrial standard.

Great price for this speed. I daren't go near them though as I think the wiring in my rented house was done about 50 years ago. I doubt I'd get a good connection.

Voted hot!.

"usually" aslong as the wiring in your house/building all connects to "one" electrical box in the house then you shouldn't have much of a problem

I've been using the slighlty cheaper 85Mbps ones and they're fine:

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/150039 currently £34.99 but have been £29.99 on ebuyer before...

Just beware that the quoted speeds are maximums.. it auto-degrades depending on your mains wiring (mine are often at 10Mbps - but I'm onluy sharing internet so that's fine),

I had a set of these that worked at about 85Mbps over extension leads (these slow it down), loved them till two weeks ago when one died - they are 15 months old
#9
Of course the real price is Total:

£43.58 with cheapest delivery option

Still a a good price, so not really a need to try and make it seem cheaper than it is!

I've had the 85Mbps ones for a couple of years now and they've been faultless for streaming media from pc to xbox and xenta boxes (SD & HD).

If I was buying again, I'd go for the pass-through versions of the adapters as these basic ones do hog a power slot!
#11
I have a set similar to these and they work very well. My home offfice which is one of my back bedrooms gets no wifi signal from my router at all so this set up is perfect, however anyone know how I could run 2 pc's of these? Would I simply have to buy a third plug? I tried something I thought was obvious and bought an ethernet cable splitter so effectively running 2 cables from the one plug but it didnt work.

A word of caution for those buying them. I bought this exact set 15 months ago and one of the recievers has failed in the last month.

I have contacted Ebuyer and they said they don't sell them any more, so I have to get a repair done at a local shop rather than have Ebuyer sort things out. I understand that their warranty period is 12 months, but they wouldn't even offer me a replacement despite me saying I would pay for another one the same. Even though I argued that 15 months is not a reasonable amount of time for the units to last, I was told nothing can be done since they are discontinued.

Now imagine my surprise when I visit my favourite deal site and see these on sale again days after I contacted their customer service. They can expect a rather annoyed phone call about this tomorrow.

heard these kind of devices dont work very well if you have surge protectors, as most of do nowadays.....

Yep, they work fine but they are so large they cover any adjacent sockets.

I have found in the past that Ebuyer's CS team don't understand the Sale of Goods Act.

I use this to get signal to my desktop upstairs. I have all my computer plugs (the tower itself, speakers, screen etc) plugged into a surge protection extension lead and then I use a completely separate plug for my adapter. A nice 5m Ethernet cable and it all works lovely.

Just done this with 85Mbps version and it works just fine.
#25
These don't have auto standby from what I can see - therefore will be like the rest without this feature... i.e. overheat and die. Plus cost you more to run :)

Ordered these instead :)

It's simple you don't put them through a surge protector otherwise it's like going to a tanning salon and wearing an overcoat on the sun bed!
#28
Not really relevant but outside the 12 months they don't have any legal obligation to repair/replace them unless you prove there was an inherent fault in the product. They're CS can be hit and miss - sometimes refusing to give you something that their site advertised as included in a bundle because it had expired but wasn't removed from the page (their fault) to repairing a viewsonic monitor that viewsonic refused to honour the warranty on and had it not been repaired I would have had a full original value credit note. So maybe they don't help when it's their fault but do if others lol.
