These are really good. I bought the triple pack back in 2015 and never had any issue with them.

A very reliable brand and usually quite expensive
I have these for about 2 years maybe 3 very reliable and no drop outs, had some TP Link ones before and they kept dropping out all the time

True. I paid £90 for the triple back then. Heat added for the price.
Can vouch for these too, my friends have been through 2 sets of TP link powerlines and since I bought these in 2017!

I'm running three TP Link set (TL-PA411 AV500) since.... 06.2015 and they work flawlessly, never skipped a beat.
Is it worth paying the extra over these for £25.99?

I bought these TP-Link a few weeks ago. No drop out and also work fine with an old powerline adapter I got from BT a few years ago (its pair broke).

this one has no wifi. if you don't need WiFi being extended that is about the normal price for the TP-link. I am using one of those the 300mb but the Wifi option could be handy.

Lucky you pointed that out, I almost bought them!
Have had these for about six months. They are reliable and have WiFi in addition to one Ethernet cable output. They have a small profile compared to others but might still occupy two sockets on a cable extender as they are somewhat wide should be ok on most wall sockets though.
Also as noted above by others they are only 2.4GHz which is outdated these days and a big downside. I had to set up my mobile to connect only to 2.4GHz at home because of that which is very limiting and annoying. 5GHz band usually has less interference as still fewer devices use it and its range is shorter anyway so fewer stray signals from neighbours.

My suggestion is to move up from AV500/600 units if you can afford it as I cannot get the full speed of my virgin fibre 100M through all the house. You end up with 20-40 Mbps max in practice.

I guess its hit and miss to be honest, my friend even dropped his second set and went for full ethernet.

Very true.bought these for £34.99

And iam getting over 160 on a 200mb virgin package
Have had these for years - it is worth noting though that if your ISP supports IPV6 I don't believe these will comply. I had no end of trouble with certain sites like Amazon/Rightmove not loading and it came down to these being in the equation.

Definitely go up if you can - I get between 50-90 Mbps down 20-50 Mbps up on VM's DOCSIS but that's more than I need 99% of the time. The "trick" in my house was to make sure all devices are connected directly into the power sockets, without any filtering devices in between.

I'm thinking of the upgrade though, I have much more WiFi devices around the house now; sadly I can't really drill the walls and ceilings, since I rent.
Not exactly related to these, but I was looking at pass through powerline adapters - does anyone know if they suffer from the same interference problems as plugging the adapter into a 4 way extension lead? You would think not, but I can't see why they wouldn't
Quick question all, can I used these with another brand of powerline??

In general, yes but I don't know about this particular one. I have 2 tp-link and 2 BT ones in one ring.
