Not true at all.

Care to elaborate? Most general homes will have one main ring main and these paired devices will normally operate up to around the 100mb speed between a pair of devices (depending upon the quality of the power mains wires in the house) . If you have 2 separate ring main circuits they can work crossing from one to the other but you get an unknown amount of loss between the two depending upon the setup in that property.

The pair works by plugging the receiver into a spare plug socket near your home router, then connecting the receiver via ethernet to it. The 2nd device is paired to the first and connects into whatever room in the house you want to use.

I'm probably going to a pair myself, that's still hell of a bargain.

Now your second comment is much more accurate, you initially said "Remember these mainly work off the same ring main in your house" Somebody not as technically clued up as you might have thought they would only work off the same ring main.
Awh it litterally went OOS as I was buying a pair!

Ah fair enough. Yeah, we had these a lot with our job. My employees thankfully offer these as a potential option for their customers but they do educate before providing (plus they give a 14 day trial period for them, which is better than most other peeps do).
Am I right in thinking this is a solution for my router being at the opposite end of my house to my office, which causes me to have a wifi signal that is weak and always dropping out...plug router in with this device to the electrical socket, then computer ethenet in to a nearby electrical socket, with the other part of this kit, and I should have a more usable internet connection?

Yes, something like that.

Edit: Added after sam1970's comment below - this takes care of extending wi-fi range as well (so ignore the rest of my post below - thanks sam1970).

If you can't quite get it to work for you (as some 1-star reviewers mention on Amazon), perhaps go for this TP Link one:
TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT (Amazon purchase link)
TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT (manufacturer's link)

Actualy this D link kit does both..wired and wireless

Really nice deal, been looking for some of these to fit Steam Link in my friend's house. My buddy is obsessed with spending the maximum possible on a mesh network set. Since these units also have WPA2 encryption on the wireless units, I should finally be able to convince him to bother rather than being an enormous numpty
Not available at Amazon now at that price....glad I ordered
OOS?
Is this compatible with an existing power line setup? (xyxel I think). I'm thinking plug these in upstairs as that's where by WiFi signal is dodgy.
Ordered from Amazon earlier thanks to phatbhoy and Crossbow for the link. Thanks so much for posting OP been wanting a decent price for wifi powerline adapters for ages, they never seem to come up
all gone :-(
