About £10 over the price of a pair of standard 200Mbps HomePlugs, but if you're like me and need the extra bandwidth, then these aren't such a bad price - Ebuyer have knocked a tenner off their own twin pack.
I bought some Belkin Gigabit adapters about 12 months ago for significantly more (around the £80 mark for a twin set), and although you shouldn't expect to get Gigabit speeds out of these, if you have good wiring, I'd hope to see somewhere in the region of 30-50MB/s being reached!

Hope that helps!

Sounds great, if you don't mind me asking - why would you need the extra bandwidth at the moment?

NAS, Home Server, video steaming etc....



Ok, thanks. Please excuse my ignorance - can you please have a look at a test I did with mates here and tell me how these could have improved things

Anyone know what's the typical transfer speeds you can expect from these?

125Mb a second, but at this speed I'd imagine at this speed it's directly related to your mains wiring

These are Solwise by looks of them and you wont get anywhere near 1000 Gbps according to reviews (to be fair the Belkin ones suck too)

"In the same room, these adapters proved to be the fastest weve seen to date, delivering an average speed of 45Mbps, which is impressive though clearly a long way from their theoretical maximum. The blue light came on, indicating that the devices were operating at an excellent speed, with plenty of bandwidth to play with.

Across the house was a different story – they were actually slower than some of the 200Mbps rivals we had tested, at just over 23Mbps. Its entirely possible that this situation would be improved if we had been able to put bridging units between the two distant sockets, but we didnt have the equipment to prove this.

Out of interest, we also swapped the devices about in our test network and got excellent speeds mixing the Solwise units with the Belkin gigabit devices, and they also communicated effectively with an existing 200Mbps network."

Just about to post this myself (we all got the email then!) but the system told me about a duplicate post so I thought I'd post a comment to say that this is a good deal.
The only downside for me is no pass through as I have my NAS hidden by its own plug. I have the extra value 200mbs ones and cant fault the product - they are reliable and feel solid; plus they have the option to power down (dont know if these have it but assume it would)

Voting hot.

oh ffs just as I was about to buy a pair of 200's...

I have the extra value 200's and they worked for 8 months, after which one broke and Ebuyer refused to do anything about it. They originally said that they don't get them in any more and they couldn't repair or replace them. Since it was over 6 months, I wasn't entitled to a refund/credit note either. Low and behold, 2 weeks after my call, the 200Mbps Extra Value kit shows up again. Give them another call and they still refused to replace my faulty unit.

I'm not saying, don't get these, just pointing out that for some things, you're better off paying for a quality brand from a better retailer.

I'm really suprised by that, ebuyer are one of my favourite retailers, … I'm really suprised by that, ebuyer are one of my favourite retailers, who I will pay extra to use just because of how great I have always found their customer service.



I was just as surprised, having heard so many good things about them! We had a fiasco with a router with them too which didn't end well, so that was the final straw for me.
