Found 5th Sep 2010
RRP £95 but usually around £70. A twist on the usual two plug set up, instead you get one plug and a four port switch which doesn't need another plug.

Manufacturer's Description
DATA TRANSMISSION OVER ELECTRICAL WIRING

The D-Link DHP-343 Powerline HD 4-Port Starter Kit uses your home’s existing electrical wiring to create a network or extend your existing network. Every contiguous power outlet becomes a potential network port for easily connecting digital media devices, game consoles, print servers, computers and network storage devices throughout your home.

IDEAL FOR BANDWIDTH INTENSIVE APPLICATIONS

The DHP-343 is capable of delivering data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps. This rapid transmission speed is suitable for bandwidth-intensive applications such as HD video streaming, VoIP calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, the DHP-343’s Quality of Service (QoS) technology prioritizes Internet traffic, ensuring that multimedia applications will not experience performance degradation while web surfing and file downloads are in progress.

CONVENIENT CONNECTION AND SECURE OPERATION

D-Link’s Powerline 4-Port HD Starter Kit plugs directly into a wall outlet. Four LAN ports allow you to connect multiple Ethernet devices and network them with other powerline adapters throughout the home. The network ID on the device can be quickly and conveniently configured at the push of a button. 3DES data encryption protects the powerline network from intruder wire-tapping.

POWER SAVING FEATURES

The DHP-343 implements a power saving mode to help conserve energy. If no data transmission or reception occurs over a specified period of time, the adapter will automatically go into sleep mode to save power. The built-in 4 port switch also helps to save energy by eliminating the need for an additional network hub/switch.

im f'd off with netgear...morons...bought their 4 port device and it isnt compatible with their hdx101 adapters that i bought about a year ago...yet it fails to mention this ever so slightly important fact on the box or instructions, but says so on their site....morons...will stick with netgear though as theirs uses the latest homeplug av standard
