Anyone know if these are compatible with other 200mbps home plugs??

not compatible, and the actual throughput seems to max at about 50Mbps on a decent wiring but can go all the way down to 4mbps, so OK for SD streaming but i can HD streaming will depend on your wiring quality.

powerline and homeplug are different standards, and compatibility can be a problem.

The blurb in the Amazon listing calls them Homeplug AV adaptors, is that just an error on Amazon's part?
#7
so this in effect are a set of home plugs (or powerline adapters, didnt realise there was actually a difference other than name) that have 4 port switchs in? so in effect with these two adapters it gives you a 4 port end to end device?

I've got a pair of these and to cover some of the comments already made:
a) Yes, they work with other 200Mbps products - I am also using four Devolo homeplugs on my home 'network'.
b) Homeplug and powerline are terms used interchangeably
c) Yes, this product in effect gives you four ports – I use one behind my TV to link to the TV and bluray player, and another in the family room linked to an Xbox and Slingbox.
d) This price is good. I paid £75.35 last October, and that was a good price at the time.
e) I can’t comment on the speed as I’ve not tested it.

Why not go for this netgear instead;

You get 4 ports at one end and 4 ports at the other. All will be connected to each other. You could think of it as an extremely stretchy 8 port hub :)

I think they're exactly the same, they just use a different standard.
#15
Hmm i was just about to tack a cat5 cable from my office router upstairs and buy a ethernet switch for behind my av cabinet in the lounge would this give me same speeds without the fuss?

nothing is gonna beat a dedicated lan cable, its all dependant on quality of wiring in the house and the speeds are a bit misleading, they are 100mbps full duplex (both ways) just like a network cable is, so a bit of a play on words for advertising than anything else.

plus speeds are theoreticl max, but still should be better than wifi in most circumstances and easier to fit than a cable.
