Ordered mine! Folks, don't forget Quidco!

Great Price!!!, the question is are they any good and will they last. Any reviews about anywhere?

Anyone know if these will work in conjunction with my current Max Value 85Mbps plugs?

No, I think it's only 200mbps that work with eachother

Most of the 200Mbps powerline devices are all the same hardware based on the same chipset. Detailed info here if you want the techy stuff

zibri.org/200…tml

Can anyone tell me if you can have 2 spearate types of powerlines running on the same mains circuit?
I don't know the make of the other set (currently being used) believe they were received with BT vision.

By this i mean to networks not one (but all attaching to the same ADSL router)

Cheers

any reviews?

will this work with virgin cable broadband

Rudz

will this work with virgin cable broadband



Yes. Fair enough I don't have this exact pair but I do have homeplugs plugged into my Superhub and work a treat

Any router with the RJ45 connection.

Cheapest I've seen for a long time. Thanks harinmenon

Strange no spec, I'd like to know if they work to the homeplug AV standard.

so can i use this with internet enabled TV?

Can't find a single review, spec or anyone selling these......might give them a miss.

Thanks. Worth a punt. Not sure if I need them though.

Very hot. I dont need them but i think i should buy them just incase i do.

Can these only be used for connecting a single device to the hub, or can you attach another hub to them?

ie.
Can you only do as per the top image, or can you do the bottom too?

Heat for the price, these are great.

Oh and Funder, at the "hub" end of mine I've got a wireless router setup as an access point that's got my Xbox and a media PC connected via cables, and also offers wireless connection. You can absolutely use it in the setup you've shown at the bottom of your diagram.

Thanks - bought 2 pairs to supercede my 85 mbps 7 day shop ones. Will comment on how they are when I receive them.... (although our internet won't get connected until next tuesday in our new house.) I'll flog the 85 mbps ones on here maybe.

I'll be using to extend our wireless network with an old router, (and I also want a spare one that I can just take around the house so I have a decent wired connection where ever I am in the house) :

blistering fast 200MBPS



- I think you mean 200Mbps (ie bits not Bytes)

- 200Mbps used to be fast but these days there are 1Gbps kits available (although not at this price). I have a Belkin 1Gbps that I bought from Saverstore a while ago - OK double the price but 5 times the speed.

- the deal site doesn't say what system these plugs are. There are currently three systems that I know of, the main two being Home Plug and UPA (sorry I can't recall the third just at the moment). They are not compatible, so you may have problems if you have existing plugs or want to add additional plugs later.

These are just points to bear in mind. For what they are these are a good price (but I still think that 1Gbps is the way to go).

I was after some of these last week while searching for a blu ray player, ended up opting for TP-Link ones which cost £35 from Amazon, shame i didn't see these first
amazon.co.uk/gp/…KP4

Perfect, just moved house and needed a new pair. thank you

Great price! No good to me though as I have to use a 4-way extension adaptor and these things need to go directly into the wall.

You misunderstand what the difference between 200mbps and 1Gbps sets is: none. The 1Gbps is referring to the the ethernet connection, whilst the 200mbps (theoretical, and refers to traffic in both directions) refers to the actual traffic over home wiring.

The fastest kits you can get are rated at 500mbps.

I've got mine plugged into the wall via one of those "bricks" with three outlets and have no problems streaming HD media across it...

You can do both.

I have the ebuyer ones, plugged in to 4ways at both end with no problems.

My concern at the moment is that I am unable to find anything on these adaptors from anywhere else.
The only place that seems to reference them is Play itself, or sites (like this one) posting about the 'deal'.
Play list the manufacturer as 'Powerline', but again it is the only product by them that Play sells, and I can't find any reference to this company elsewhere or the C200M.

What throughput are you likely to get on these? Is it better than Wifi 11g?

It should work in a 4 way extension - my 7dayshop homeplugs do and I've read in other forums that they do work, but the length of cable in the extension might affect the quality of the signal. You can always try them and sell them on if they don't work. At this price it's worth the risk.

I haven't got any of these yet but it seems you should avoid extensions with surge protection which I find a bit of a pain as we don't have many double sockets as our house is over 40 years old.

I don't deny that this is recommended but I will say they do work in extension blocks even with surge protectors albeit a little slower!

I've had these working off a 4 ways plugged into an 8 way....depends upon cable length, distance on loop etc....I daresay you could have one off a 4 way downstairs that would perform better than one off the wall socket in your 3rd floor actic that was a spur off a spur etc...

hate to be a snob - but I wouldn't use anything but Devolo for powerline. Tried a couple of other brands (not this one mind) and had drop outs and the like. Bearing in mind my property is old as is the wiring and I have a lot of electrical sockets.

With best buy (RIP) they are doing 25% off network peripherals I think - so its only a tenner more for the 100mb ones.

I currently have 5 in my house and can only sing their praises.
