hot from me

I bought these a year or so ago and have been using them a fair bit, i have found they are run very hot, one of them popped on me but it was just over a year so i imagine i dont have any warranty. I use mine a lot for gaming, I have my xbox in the back room and my router upstairs and share the connection from there, I have found there are the occasional random hangs though, but generally no problems at all. If i was buying again I would spend more money on a slightly more reliable version and the 100mb/s ones at least. Also they are massive so if you have them on a 4 way ganger or in a regular socket you wont be able to put another plug in next to it!

i got the Extra Value 200Mbps Powerline Adapter Twin Pack last year and yes they do run hot after awhile. also if left on all day they will stop working but will start working after they have cooled down.

This is technically known as "a load of old rubbish". The product not your statement :)

I'd go for the Orange homeplugs, one seller has them cheaper than this offer, they are rebranded. Search for Devolo homeplug on the well known auction site, you know which one I mean. I've never used that seller so I don't know how reliable they are but they have more than 10 currently. They are decent homeplugs and don't overheat massively and stop working. You can update the firmware to the latest Devolo firmware from their homepage. Very easy to use, just play and play, if you want to encrypt the network there is a devolo utility to do that.

I have 4 of the 200Mbps extra value plugs and have never had any issues like you are having. The only problem I do find is that if I put them on a different electrical circuit I get about 40% of the internet connection speed. Still I think they are well worth it.

these plugs deffo suffer from overheating though, I bought 6 and they all run hot and do need unplugging to let them cool down every now and then.

As i said though, very good for a budget solution but I would recommend paying extra for a bit better!

I have 8 200Mbps ones (with power socket passthrough) and 2 85Mbps ones. Had no problems with any of them. They are all still going/ Have also purchased for a few clients on budgets (charities) and they are still going strong there. Occasionally ey will just stop working. Not sure if this is heat or not but an unplug and plug back in and off they go again.

A note about the 85Mbps ones - they do not do VLAN passthrough - they strip the VLAN tags. Probably of no interest to 99% of people on here but I suddenly needed to do it which is why I noticed it. The 200Mbps ones do VLAN passthrough fine. Hopefully this helps somebody. If you have no use for VLAN's I would recommend this thoroughly.

You can encrypt and setup separate 'networks' (or grouping of plugs for easier explanation) using the utility that comes with the 85Mbps adapters. Devolo's are good plugs but run hot just like every other plug out there. Everybody's experience is different though.

these sound very dangerous to me!
#11
I've got the 200mbps Ebuyer ones and don't have any problems either - they run warm (but still a lot cooler than most PSU bricks do) and I have them running 24/7 with no disconnection problems. Highly recommended (except that they do look rather bulky/cheap).

Are these fast enough to allow streaming of HD contect from a NAS as wireless won't cut it. We're talking 30-40 gig files. Someone out there must know, I'm suspecting I need the the 200mbps model?

You'll need the 200mbps for reliable HD streaming (if you're talking bluray rips etc rather than iPlayer HD).

Yeah Blu Ray rips - Thanks Trickster - Rep :)

It will give a theoretical speed of 10.62 megabytes a second, so in theory it would do.
However if it is important to you and you want reliability then yes I would go for the 200 model.

i bought some of these a few months ago to get internet to my extension as wireless wont reach that far, they worked fine at first but they are very unreliable now. if the comment about them not working while hot is valid then this may be the reason as they've been left on for a couple of months, i'll turn them off and try them again in a few hours

I managed to get one of these for £49.99 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/179960

The price went up to £69.99 only a couple of hours ago so it seemed I got in at the right time.

The good things about the ones I got are you can plug other electronics into it so you don't lose a socket and apparently the go into 'standby' mode when not in use and come back on almost instantly when data is back up and running through.

I've had them running non stop for 8 months - yes they get hot but never had them d/c on me
