Cheaper still, if you don't like £3.99 postage at Dabs order same at BT shop, postage there is only £1.99. So only £26.98 total !

Or if you order the 2 packs ( £49.98 ) postage is slightly higher at £2.48 so total £52.46 . That is £26.23 per 500Mbps pack.

Hardly worth getting the 200Mbps at these prices.

What are these like in terms of reliability, not really heard of them before? Although it has a 3 year warranty not sure I want something that fail constantly.

Hot, paid £62 on eBay for 4 (being delivered today).

Slightly chunkier than the tp link mini's, but quicker and in stock.
vaugi#5
thanks op, ordered in case the PCWorld ones get cancelled. These aren't in stock now either - "More than 200 due in 1-2 days"..
Bodzilla#6
Shows £24.99, but when you get to the payment part of the checkout it reverts to £29.98 +delivery for me.
stanno#7
Yes. SHows as £24.99 in basket but goes up to £29.98 when you get to checkout. System glitch but I'm pretty sure you'll be charged £29.98 + postage.

BTW exactly the same happens if you try and buy from the BT Shop. Same system - same glitch.

Until they sort this mess out this should be expired as some people are going to be tricked into paying £5 over what they thought.

good price if you can get it. i just ordered the zyxel ones for £36 the other day
weiran#11
Whats the actual performance like on these? Faster than 3x3 N wireless (theoretical 450Mbps)?
sk1881#12
Price back up to £29.99, same goes for BT SHOP

Even at £29.98 it's a good deal anyway. These have a Gigabit ethernet port so you'll be able to get over 100mbps unlike a lot of others that claim 200 or 500mbps but are bottlenecked with a 100mbps ethernet port.

I've recent bought a pair of Solwise AV 500s, if I hadn't I'd buy these straight away. I'm tempted to get a pair anyway since I need at least one more.

in real terms it usually won't make a difference

at peak speed of 200mbps from the link you provided, it does matter.

These work with the following:

TP-Link 200Mbps & 500Mbps Homeplugs
Edimax 200Mbps Homeplugs

How many ethernet ports does this have on the receiver (Just 1) please? I'm in the market for a set with 2 x ports on the receiver.

Just one. You can always get one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-Gigabit-Unmanaged-Desktop-TL-SG1005D/dp/B000N99BBC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346248399&sr=8-1

The peak speed (at location A) at the link he provided is for two of the units plugged into the same extension strip! In the real world, gigabit gains you nothing with these devices

Real world is ~ 8MBytes a second peak.

I can get 10MBytes/sec out of 5GHz wide channel 2 x 2 N wireless. I'd expect that 3x3 5Ghz wide channels would give you ~13 MBytes a second, or perhaps slightly better.

2.4GHz will depend so much on interference levels it's effectively anybodies guess.
