These are now £54.99 again rather than £49.99 but I still think they are second to none for what they offer.

They are the cheapest on the Internet.

They have streamed HD content from my NAS drive to the PS3 without one glitch since I got them.

They prioritise your data through QOS - Quality of Service so that Video streams without any glitches.

Plug these into the wall socket and then plug whatever you want into it.

This means that you do not lose the use of a socket.

You still need to connect this with an Ethernet cable to your router as usual.

Compatible with other home-plugs.

I got these about a month ago when they first went down to the £50 price.

Good bit of kit and well worth £50.

Nice find.

So you can plug your router into the same socket

Yes you can. I have a 6 way plugged into an eight way which is plugged into this and it all works a treat. I am getting 181Mbps on the plugs as well.

Will these work well on older wired houses?

Will these work well on older wired houses?




My house is 100 years old but obviously the wiring isn't quite that old but it is old and I get great speeds as shown above.

Wtf Southwell I only get 160mbs max!

Well, I think it can vary depending on the load on the house wiring at the time but mine seems to have stayed steady between 177 and 183 for the last week.

can I use these to stream music from my laptop to an amp in another room?

These are basically network extenders so if you can normally connect your laptop to your amp via network cable then yes. I see no problem with the laptop having a network connection but not sure if your amp would have one.

Can you explain what exactly they do ? They are new to me.

If you want to send the Internet or stream music or video to another spot in the house or share Internet connection between two PC's in different parts of the house, and wireless won't do the job, then these work extremely well.

Say you have a PC upstairs and another downstairs that is plugged into your router. Put one of these in to an electrical plug beside the router downstairs and using the cable supplied attach to the router. Next plug the other in upstairs next to the second PC and attach to the PC with the cable supplied and you now have internet upstairs using the electrical cable in your home.

If you have a great wireless signal then you probably don't need these. However, if you stream video to a PS3 or game online with the PS3 or XBOX and use wireless then you will find that these keep a constant signal.

It's basically a network which uses your normal electrical circuit rather than running ethernet cables between rooms or if you don't like wireless. It's supposed to be faster and is supposed to be more reliable.

But does depend on your houses electricity - i've got the 85Mbps ones and they don't work that great - they're ok - but not brilliant. These will be better - but you need to make sure that you dont mix up Mbps with MB/s as a b is not the the same as a B! - so dont expect to transfer files at 200MB/s and they're normally 100 each way.

There is loads on AV forums about these - including recommending that you go through the house opening up the plates and then tightening the screws for the cables - as is supposed to make a considerable speed improvement. I find that I have to be careful what else is on in the house if I want optimum speed. Which is why I was surprised with the above - where the pass through works well - might get some of these to try....

Basically they use your house wiring to connect computers and things.

Anything with an ethernet port (computer/laptop/router/tv) plugs into this plug thing via an ethernet cable and then it whizzes through your electrical cables of your house and pops out at the other plug which you'd then have another device connected to via another cable.

I use mine for two purposes, the first is that my wireless signal is poor so I plug my router into one of these cables and then upstairs at the other end of the house I plug my laptop into the other one in my bedroom which gives me a wired internet connection to the router and perfect internet speeds.
I also use it to connect the main computer downstairs to my TV so that I can watch movies and listen to music from the computer in one room on the TV in another.

Which software were you using to test the speeds? and do you know where to get it from? do I need to install it on both machines or just one?

any help appreciated - my 85 plugs are rubbish! and was thinking that this may help speed it up - but think it's my house wiring

Vik1 they really do work well. My wiring is pretty terrible and I i've been advised I need a rewire but I'm using these (on the other computer) and I get between 175 and 185 pretty much all the time. I had no idea what that actually meant until I read this thread though lol
oh and its this particular model as well

The software that I used came with the plugs and you do not need to use it at all. The plugs work straight out of the box.

I replaced my 85 Mbps plugs with these as I had some glitching when streaming video. I have since watched in the region of twenty five shows or films, half of which are HD without issue. I can also watch iplayer without any jumps or jitters so very pleased so far.

Thanks for the info guys.

I take it they will consume electricity as well as transmitting your signal ?

I'm using the Netgear DG834GT and all seems to work flawlessly.

Cheers have ordered one, can you add etxra single adapters? and if so do they have to be the same make?

Hot stuff

Look great, but comming up at £54.99

I have just read a good review on Ebuyer that says these are compatible with and give better preformance than the Zyxel 200Mbps units (which I have) so I'm going to grab a a pair of these and see what happens.

Cheers OP. H&R

price has gone up now........

Are these the same type of adapter or better ? I'm looking to boost the wifi signal to our WII console.

These allow you to put a plug in to them once they are plugged in to the wall so that you do not lose the use of a socket. They are well reviewed and others on this forum have bought the same item and find they work very well. The ones that you are linking to do not have the pass-through function and there are no reviews but they are 200Mbps network plugs.

I am also just thinking, does the Wii have a network (Ethernet) socket?

You could of course use one of these to add an Ethernet port via USB...

Hope that helps.

These are now £54.99 but are delivered free.

Still a bargain if you ask me.

Just go this at the £49.99 mark, still good value at the higher price. Voted hot.

For those who need more than 1 ethernet out try this 8 port ethernet switch from Play @ £7.99;

One question - for streaming video content (possibly HD) to my TV would I be better investing in these or a Wireless N router?

These, most definitely. Even with Wireless N you will encounter problems. As I have said already in an earlier thread, I had the 85Mbps version of power-line plugs and encountered glitches with streaming HD, since I changed to these HD has streamed seamlessly. Unless you can guarantee that the Wireless N signal will remain strong and constant you will have problems with HD streaming, you may still encounter problems with standard definition if Wireless N works to it's potential.

These plugs have what is called QOS or Quality of Service which prioritises what travels through them. It cannot be changed but the plugs prioritise Video over anything else such as data which allows for glitch free viewing.

I bought these a few weeks ago. Despite eBuyer claiming 'Super Saver' delivery would take 3 - 4 days they actually arrived the next morning.
These work excellently. Streaming video to my 360 from the desktop that's in the shed at the end of our garden with no problems.

Hmm, I voted hot because the price was originally under £50, now it has gone up to the usual price it is no longer a bargain and should have been expired. Not had the price on the deal changed.

Now all a website has to do is put a low price on an item for a couple of days until it gets voted over 200 degrees then put the price up and have the deal changed so as it still looks hot when in fact it is not!

You should not be able to amend a price of a deal once it reaches the hot section of this website! :x

I did state that the price has changed and these are very good at this price. They offer QOS and have the pass-through feature and delivery is free unless you live in NI, which I do and had to pay a tenner for delivery.
