I'd highly recommend it if you've just recently bought a 360, as going online really adds life to the console and Gears of War 2 is probably the most played online game at the moment, so this is a great deal for the combo. :)
#2
i ordered the 360 deal yesterday and couldnt decide whether to go wireless or mess about with wired until i spotted this deal this morning.
#3
It's been listed before but I think it's been expired because of the dates but providing it's still working, then it's great.
#4
Voted hot, cracking deal.

Is there any noticeable lag through this connector compared to a wired connection? At the moment I have to run a lead across my lounge directly to the router to get online on my xbox which isn't very pretty, but obviously provides a good speed. I don't really want to be losing even tenths of a second when playing an online shooter as that can really make the difference.

If you are worried about the lag you wont be able to stream Hi Def using wireless. You might also want to look at the homeplugs 200mbps that were listed on Amazon.

those are what I use and since the xbox only has a 100mb network card is more than fast enough.

I am getting about 95mbps throughput on the homeplugs. Think they were listed for £50 for the pair yesterday. Ok you don't get GoW2 with it at that price but you wont lose any speed

I would recomend getting a 30m cable and wireing the xbox. It is much cheaper and does not rely on wireless. A long cable can be hidden around the edge of the room. A games console will spend most of its time in one place. If you need to move the console regulary then the wireless conection may be usefull but if not then why pay more?

Oh yeah forgot to add, Gears 2 is awesome. Well worth a buy.

wired is the only way to be sure of minimal lag.
if you have multiple users or other inteference then wifi can and does lag

I'm surfing the internet through my wireless USB dongle right now, and I've dabbled in a few online PC games in the past, I have never experienced lag. My connection used to be 2 M/Bits but now it's 5.5 M/Bits. But the point I'm trying to make is this...

My PC's USB adapter cost only £9.99 (a sweex one from Play.com) and lag is non-existent on the PC side. Whereas my Xbox 360 is connected up "occasionally" with a 30 metre ethernet from the wireless router - which really is an eyesore in the living room!
And playing Soul Calibur IV whenever, there most definitely is lag. Going wireless won't make it any worse I don't think, just... I don't think there's any viable option for lag-free Xbox 360 gaming at the moment, it has nothing to do with your side. It has more to do with their server side.

Might be different for Gears of War 2 and Halo 3 etc - Halo 3 is usually pretty smooth.
Just my two cents (pence:thumbsup:)

Lol, anyways my point - Is £46 for a USB adapter worth it? £60 is a rip off and I guess hovering around £45 is easier to take...

Can someone link me to the superflat cat 5 cables on ebuyer, i had a very quick look at work and couldnt seem to find them.

Thanks!!
#13
I decided to just get this. I need a Wireless, and I've just completed Gears of War on Insane difficulty so I need Gears of War 2 as well, just the money puts me off. Whatever though, now I can go online, and with LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION Gears of War 2 as well.

Having bought my own 360 recently I wanted to hook up the Xbox Live feature. The wireless adapter is still expensive so I opted for a 20m CAT6 Ethernet cable which was £7.13 all in from cablestar:

http://stores.channeladvisor.com/cablestar/Items/cat6-20mzz?sck=27974159&caSKU=cat6-20mzz&caTitle=Cat6%20RJ45%20Ethernet%20LAN%20Network%20UTP%20Lead%2020m%20New%20Cable

20m is a generous size, I noted that I'd need 15m but this little extra allows the cable to trail along the skirting boards so it's not too obtrusive. When I'm not playing online I'll just gather it up anyway, it's not meant to be a permanent connection.

As for the game, Gears of War 2 won't appeal to everyone, I've been playing it casually for a few days and it hasn't impressed me. Appearance and sound are good but there's not a lot to do, it's very linear. I hope the Live gameplay will breath some life into it.

Similar offer in Gamestation

67.98 for the wireless adapter and either Gears of War 2 or Call Of Duty 5.
#16
Enchante, I've gone to Gamestation and put the 2 items into the basket but it's saying the total is £97.98. Does it apply the discount when I'm checking out? :?

This deal was mentioned the other week as to my knowledge, it's an in-store promotion. You can/could get the similar deal at Currys online.
