nice and small and work well. I got some a while back which failed after a while. emailed to link who sent me replacements straight away!

Has these at this price at the Merry Hill store on Saturday. Had to visit the Oldbury "Savacentre" store later that day and they were "reduced" to £25.00!! oO

Not bad, but worth keeping in mind that though they state transfer speeds of "500mbps" or greater, this is the maximum theoretical speed that the processing unit within can manage. Most (if not all) of the TP-link power line Ethernet adopters have a 100mbps Ethernet port, so the maximal absolute speed you could get is 100mbps. When you factor in your home electrical circuitry, this will usually equate to something like a 20mbps throughput even if your internet speed is 100mbps (though your mileage may vary!).

Had a nightmare with these. Just kept dropping off the network for no reason. Got some dlink ones (which are faster anyway) which are rock solid. Couldn't work out what the tp link ones were doing as I had two different sets which didn't want to play.

Agreed that the true connection speed will be lower. I get around 70mbps. If you are getting 20 there is something wrong with your setup. Or your wiring is causing bottleneck. Most modern wired houses should get pretty decent speeds and for connecting streaming devices they are far more reliable than wifi

Had these for a while. Probably reduced because the AV600 have been released. The hardware is the same though and these can be upgraded to support 600Mbps using the firmware from the UK support site. They have been rock solid for me on the updated firmware. There is a powerline utility that can be used to monitor the performance of each of the adapters. On my new build house, the adapters are averaging about 300Mbps each on the Powerline network - half the theoretical maximum of these adapters. Of course, the Ethernet interface onto this network is limited to 100Mbps due to the lower speed port used so that is the most any single device would see when hard wired. My Mac is hardwired and I am getting the full 76Mbps for my Fibre service. Anyone getting 20Mbps clearly have config or wiring issues - this is likely not the norm and these adapters are a good option - just make sure the firmware is up to date.

I've had the same problem with these, definitely not as reliable as the slightly pricier brands

Jest got some form Basingstoke, shows £25 but scanned at £15. Thanks
