​ What? I received mine no problem at all. they're pretty solid adapters for this price.
#10
I bought these last week and I get the same speed from these upstairs as I do directly connected to the router downstairs. I paid £28 for them from Amazon.

​these are power line adaptors, they can be hardwired into a switch
#13
If I was to get some pass through ones with these would there be a problem with compatibility.

You can plug them into whatever you like. The operating system a computer happens to be running has absolutely nothing to do with it.

​how?
#18
Bought the pass through one on the previous deal, anyone had any luck getting them to work with other brands?
#19
can you use with existing powerline (200Mb) adapters already installed?

​just ring up and say your youviee box is in a different room to your router and you can't use it without powerline adapters.
#22
Does this only extend it within the same ring main? My garage up the garden is on it's own rcd, would this improve my signal up there?
#23
Hey folks I have read that adaptors need to be on the same power ring and I have also seen folks say they work across as long as they're on the same meter. Is that down to model?

Ordered from CPC... They are £ 38 on Amazon UK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/PLA5206-Powerline-Gigabit-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B00OB2D5XC/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1485884196&sr=8-10&keywords=gigabit+powerline)

Good spot. And the D-Link DHP-509AV/B AV 500 HD PowerLine Starter Kit is just £14.48 new from Amazon (~£1 cheaper for Used - Very Good from the warehouse).

One review:
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/review/powerline-adapters/d-link-av2-1000-hd-powerline-adapters-review-3623398/
"Both sets of D-Link Powerlines are basic. There’s no wireless function to add a new Wi-Fi hotspot in the second room (as some Powerlines boast) and there’s no pass-through power socket on the adapters either, so they will use up your wall sockets – don’t plug them into a power extender as this will slow them down.

If you don’t have a ton of power sockets then you should consider Powerline adapters with these integrated pass-through sockets. D-Link is planning pass-through versions of both products."
(How much are your power sockets worth? It looks like pass-through versions are around £50).

This 2016 Wirecutter review says:
"The...[list of adapters], D-Link Powerline AV2 1000 Gigabit Starter Kit (DHP-601AV) were fine but unexceptional last year; now they’re too slow."
The 2000 Mbps items that they are slower than look to cost nearly £100:

For me, these are the previous generation's products, selling at a 50% discount. Probably still good enough though.

Can't say those reviews look particularly helpful. I'm using a pair of BT AV200 powerline adapters and they are perfectly adequate for my needs and would no doubt be for at least 90% of the country.

Totally agree, I have no problems with the Netgear 200mbps adapters or Trendnet 500 Mbps adapters I have.
For somebody looking for high throughput on their Lan, 200mbps may not be enough, but is more than adequate for my needs.
Also pass through is just a gimmick as far as I'm concerned and an unnecessary extra expense. Non pass through are much smaller and double plug adapters are cheap.
I have also never had an issue with trailing sockets either.
