First post!
Amazon is at least £10 cheaper than the next lowest that I can find.
It was this same price early December 2017 and then back upto near £50.

Comes with the added benefit of a passthrough plug socket so you're not losing a socket. Good range, dualband, lan socket, good reviews - what's not to like?
I know there are probably better options such as powerline with built in extender, but thought this was a cracking deal.

Range extender = signal reducer

Knock 50% off your broadband speed if you’re using this via WiFi.

Could you not use this with a powerline adapter for the internet connection and not use as a wifi range extender? See your point though

You're going to need some brackets there
OK, I expected comments about it reducing this, and being slower than that. But what I was pointing out is it's a good deal.
If wifi won't reach where you'd need it, then you don't have many options. Sure, you could get powerline adapters, but how will that fix issues phones have when the wifi signal is bad? Correct, it won't.
I know I could run powerline, and then set up another wifi router/access point. Could even run cat5 to where I need it. Could even replace my router with a top of the range model that will dissolve anyone who gets in the way of it's signal!
Getting more expensive now, and taking up more room.

It's just a good deal for those that need it.

Better off with something like this...

TP-Link TL-WPA4220KIT 2-Port Power Line Starter Kit, Range Extender, Broadband/Wi-Fi Extender, Wi-Fi Booster/Hotspot, Data Transfer Speed Up to 600 Mbps, No Configuration Required, UK Plug amazon.co.uk/dp/…80N

I get full speed WiFi in my garage, and it has 2 ethernet out.
Amazon page has contradictory information on the Ethernet port - is it Gigabit or 100Mbps? The page says both:

Gigabit Ethernet port – connect a wired device like Blu-ray player, game console or smart TV to your Wi-Fi network

1-port Fast Ethernet (this is 100Mbps)

The two radios can extend both bands simultaneously or be configured in what NETGEAR calls "FastLane", which uses one radio as a "backhaul" to the router or AP being extended while the other is used to connect clients. This avoids the 50% retransmission throughput penalty imposed by the basic wireless extension process.

I did see that one, and was tempted - but it's a tenner more. I haven't bought anything yet - still in two minds which route to go, but this is still a great price and am sure it would give me a near perfect setup.

Netgear state it's just 10/100.
For my needs, it's superfluous to requirements. The extender would be sited on my landing or in the hallway. That said, if I needed it, i'd probably be looking for something that would give gigabit speed.

Doesn't reduce signal and has nothing to do with your broadband speed

Works pretty well compared to others I've tried. If you're using it to extend WiFi into hard to reach areas, as most probably are, there is no particularly noticeable benefit in having a gigabit port as speed will be limited anyway
Now even cheaper if you order over £50 and factor in the £10 off £50+ offer currently on Amazon!
