Looks good to me, very tempting actually - the reviews of the product on ebuyer.com are pretty good too!

Heat added :thumbsup:

Just amended price to reflect minimum shipping charge.

Belkins can be found for cheaper on fleabay but those are refurbished units and typically the reviews are not as good as the ebuyer units.

In that post it's 31.99 for just one. This is 39.99 + P&P for a pair. So this is a better deal.

They're not 200mbps, of course. They're 100mbps full duplex, best case.

I just decommissioned a pair of these due to throughput not being enough for me. I was getting real world speeds of 60mbit or so, and really needed better so I just laid a cat6 cable and I'm now transferring files as fast as the hard drives can manage.

Decent solution for people who can't have a cable run, but I hope you don't have any amateur radio enthusiasts nearby.

And they overheat too, so you have to be careful how you position them, or you'll be rebooting them several times a day.

Yeah, wish I could lay some cables :-(
I have the 100's from ebuyer and get around 5mbps from them. My router is at the extension in the back of the house in my studio (keyboards etc) and cannot get any wifi near the front. For cables it would mean drilling through three walls but no way to hide the cables so am stuck really. :-(

Do you know how long your power line cable run was? From the reviews on eBuyer it looked as though these would outperform the devolo 85Mpbs homeplug devices.

Also avoid using any surge protectors, multiplugs or multiway strips when using these adapters. Use them directly. also try and see if you can get low pass filters for the said frequency. I know corinex sells them and you will get a much much better signal.

In all honsety, you will get about 80-90mbps real world speed as there are a lot of overheads in the transmission, speically as it's AES encrypted.. (or atleast I think it is... usually they are)

I've got these. Work well for me. Usually see ~80mbps transfer speeds (remember this is ranges from 6megabytes to 8megabytes), and the QoS seems to be alright (pings do go up when you use VOIP and transfer a file to another pc to max out the bandwidth, normal ping 31ms, when maxed out 60ms).

Overall much faster than my 54g which only gave me 16mbps transfer and a few dropouts in multiplayer games at crucial moments. But the cost is a few ms to pings, for me it's ~4ms.

You can't turn off encryption (didn't see a way to do it) but you can turn off the LED's on them if they are visible (3 bright green with one that flickers on traffic). [URL="ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/XAV101_setup_v2.0.1.0_230-10582-05.exe"]To do that use Netgear's utility.[/URL]

Remember these depend on your wiring and distance between them.

Not sure, but it's not a big flat.

Got my pair in the end and they are running at 150mbps where my old 85mbps units were struggling on 30mbps - certainly something to consider if you need a bit more poke for video streaming.
