This is a great price for a 1.2 gbps rated powerline adaptor set with pass through. This allows it to be plugged in without removing access to that socket for other appliances.

It’s that easy. With a 1.2 Gigabit speed and Beamforming, the Powerline 1200 is designed for connecting smart TVs, streaming players and game consoles.

  • Set up in minutes, no need to configure or install software
  • Provides an extra noise-filtered outlet and improves the overall Powerline network performance
  • Encrypts Powerline network connections with the touch of a button

Nice, just bought some to replace the cable going around my living room and under my patio doors to my NAS...
Awesome price!

Curious if anyone has hands on experience of these vs. equivalent from TP link and Devolo. Which is more reliable?

It’s probably just me. I have 5 adapters (not all this model) and one TP. It is the TP that I have had most trouble with. Although I hope I have it sorted now

Most 1200Mbps units on the market use same chipset and reference design. (QCA7500)

Naturally there can be some component quality differences, build quality differences etc. And perhaps one manufacturer offers a better or more up-to-date firmware for their given implementation. But very hard to determine.

Yeh same as @matty2767 - the netgear's seem more reliable. Had an odd issue with the TP's which seemed well documented on the net as an issue.

I only have experience with the TP Link and Devolo versions - I had some issues with the TP Link versions a few months ago which led me to replace them with the Devolos, and haven't had to think about them since, but this is based on a sample size of 1 household admittedly!! The Devolos did also cost a fair bit more if I recall...
I have these, they only give me a maximum speed of 95 Mega bit. However, they have been running constantly for 2 months now and have yet to drop out.
I got 2000mbps tp link one. When I check the app it says I'm getting 1000mbps connection. Hard to believe tho. My broadband is fibre to the home 150mbps so I might increase it to 300mbps. All my traffic is through powerline
Have some 600mbps ones but because the wires are not the best quality I am getting only 20mbps on one desktop and around 40mbps on the other one. Has anyone tested the speeds in real life situations of those ones?

hi all,seems like a good deal to be fair...just one question if anyone can help,I have a different set to this so can I use my existing ones I've the one that is plugged in and goes to the router via a cable & then one I use downstairs has a outlet so speak.. so can I use these has additional ones or do you have to have the same brand?
thanks in advance.
Thanks.

Beamforming? Does that mean this create a wireless signal too?
I have the non-plug version of this (PL-1200-100uks) and its really good. It does require you to switch them off and on every now and then but other than that, really fast and much more stable than wireless.

Thanks. How many meters is roughly the distance between the two powerlines?

In theory, these use the Homeplug standard (a modern version ) AV2 and should work with any brand of homeplug powerline adapters. The Homeplug AV2 is backwards compatible with Homeplug AV adapters. Very early powerline devices used Homeplug 1.0 - these devices will not work with homeplug AV devices.
en.wikipedia.org/wik…lug


However there are a few things to note:
Manufacturers usually recommend using the same brand (I know BT 200mbps adapters can be a pain to mix). In theory mixing different brands using the homeplug standard should work, but you will encounter the odd story of people having problem. There is no guarantee (I mixed 200mbps brands with no problem).
The adapters will slow down to the slowest connection - so if you mix 200mbps adapters with 1200mbps adapters on same network, all the adapters slow down to the speed of the 200mbps adapters.

I have been in 3 locations with it, roughly less than 10 - 15m
How do I check what speeds I'm getting via powerlines? (Which apps etc)
I have TP link 3 ports ones which work well enough but as I've only ever had them I don't have any knowledge to compare against.
They do lose connection quite frequently & streaming is at times poor.

ohh ok thanks mate,I might take a risk,thanks again for the info
Installed mine and I went from 100mb/s transfer time via direct ethernet to 25mb/s, and my house was built 3 years ago lol

This is the problem with those...it is a bit of a gamble...decided against upgrading until I get a 2000 ones for a decent price. No point going from 30-40mb/s to 100mb/s thus not using the full potential of the internet connection.

Hey Matty, are you using the Netgear model in this post or different Netgear models, are the TP's and the Netgears compatible?

I have these PLP1200's and bought a pair of TP-Link TL-PA7010's and they are not compatible with the Netgear's.

Anyone else have any success mixing the PLP1200 with TP links?

Hi X10

i have some XAV2001, WPA281 [old tp link], TL-PA4020P and this model. Have you tried pairing the TP link, as you know they work. Then add each netgear unit in turn using the pair button on the side. just add one at a time.

one other thing to check is that you have only one electrical circuit and not an upstairs and downstairs ring [say].

hope that helps
Thanks matty.
I had the Netgears first, which obviously worked with each other across the whole flat. The TP-Links were added after. They also work with each other across the whole flat. However adding them to the existing Netgear set up did not work.
I don't think I tried having the TP-Links set up first then adding the Netgears, will give that a try.
Looking through the manual neither the Netgears nor the TP-Links indicate you need to pair them via a button, they should just establish with each other out of the box.
I'll report back.
