Deal of the day. Never been cheaper according to the Camels.

This is pass through that's normally more expensive.

and the av2000 is aout the £100 mark...
this is a good deal..
How fast is this ?

Up to 1000mbs but very dependent on distance and the wiring in your house.

Cheers OP.I just cancelled my order for the non paasthrough ones which were more expensive.
Are these quite future proof . My router is upstairs and I need net downstairs Ethernet ports etc for devices nas PS4 etc

No the weakest link determines the strength of the chain. The slowest power line adapter determines the speed. So it have one slow adapter , it makes others slow as well if working together.

I’m thinking of adding a switch as I need more Ethernet ports what max speed will I be able to get if i get a 5 switch Ethernet box for example

Which would be irrelevant if you're not mixing them with slower adapters, and the person you replied to stated a need for Ethernet ports downstairs not additional ones.

Just can't help yourself when it comes to stupid comments can you? Most people are using 200 or 500mbit which is fine for sharing the home broadband (typically 10-40mbit) or even moderate streaming where WiFi doesn't work.

When it comes to really expensive Powerline there is a point where actually getting proper Ethernet wired in becomes the better option as Powerline rarely even reaches the maximum theoretical.
Here's a quote from an article called Reviews of the Best Powerline Network Adapters 2017-2018

"We plugged one adapter in next to our router and connected it with the Ethernet cable. After about 30 to 40 seconds, the bottom LED lit up indicating that the connection was successful. For the first test, we placed the second adapter in the same room. Transmission speeds were around 430Mbps. Not quite the 2000Mbps that was advertised, but still better than any other adapter we’ve come across. This speed is capable of transferring a standard 1gb movie file in about 20 seconds.

Next, we put the second adapter two floors down in the basement, on the opposite side of the house. From here, speeds were closer to 117Mbps – taking roughly a minute to transfer the same video file. While these speeds are much lower, this is the theoretical minimum speed you should receive in a household setting. This is still much faster than the average internet connection, and is fast enough to stream live 4k video."

Would like to kniw this aswell
Speed wise, these were a big improvement on my older Powerline plugs.

However, they are also huge compared to my old plugs. I've had to move an AV rack and cupboards further from the wall to accommodate them. Plus, the ethernet cable has to go upwards then loop downwards out of the plug. Which don't look that great on a bare wall either.

They're fast, but check the size and cable routing will look OK for you.

Dimensions
Height:126mm
Width: 70mm
Front-to-back depth:50mm (after inserted into wall)

Remember, if going behind a cabinet or the like, you'll need a bit of extra front-to-back clearance before plugging them into the wall i.e. to clear the metal prongs of the plug
Total front-to-back depth (including three metal prongs): 73mm

I've got the 7020 which is the newer twin port version. Twin ports share the bandwidth so it's just for routing, and you can just use a 5-port basic unmanaged switch where aesthetics don't matter/behind tv or such. Throughput is middling I found - given 80mb internet, it shows up about the same speed between floor 1 to 2, but no faster on file transfers. The whole gigabit thing is not to be expected it will just work at say 100mb + on average and less if distance is large(like 2floors). I've wired actual cable but these are portable. Another solution is just flat cable, which is cheap as and you can hide under carpets (cut a groove in the underlay) or under skirting. It's possible to get a clean result with flat cabling depending in your route of cable and it's cat6.

Having said that tplink always been reliable fir me. Might get these as spares.
Think people missing the point of 'upto' 1000mbps I have a 500mbps up in the loft feeding my network with 8 ip cameras and a DVR.... now, I wonder what the transfer speed could be?... Bu99er that, pass me another beer
Question: if I were to buy one of these sets, place one next to my router and cctv recorder, then place the other set in my shed (with a 70ft run of armoured cable to it) would an ip camera be able to work with that set up if plugged in via an Ethernet cable?
...which is then plugged into my recorder.
so in short

av2000 or av1000 realistically which is better value and more future proof
with a 2 port pass through that means you could use on ethernet port connected to the router and another for another ethernet device? so it saves a plug basically

or two ethernet enabled devices could run from a single plug
with the other plug connected to the router?
For those who are not aware, and debating whether to purchase their Powerline plugs with a single or multiple ethernet outputs, then £10 buys a TP-Link Gigabit switch which converts a single ethernet feed into four outputs. It's plug and play and requires zero setup or configuration.

amazon.co.uk/TP-…tch

Advantages are there's more ethernet outputs and is cheaper than paying the big premium for a Powerline plug with multiple outputs. In this instance you would need the Powerline plug (with a single ethernet output) which would connect with the supplied ethernet cable to the £10 TP-Link Gigabit switch which then gives you four ethernet outputs.

Which is exactly what I do, I've bought these to update my current av500 plugs which I've had years and I'm hoping to see a speed improvement for downloads on the Xbox, in theory there should be but it depends on my wiring in the house and no-one can tell you that until you try!

but yeah, upstairs I have the virgin super hub router, plug the cable from that into the powerline, downstairs have the other powerline adapter and the cable out of that into an 8 port gigabit switch, then use those ports for the likes of sky, Xbox, ps4 etc... nstead of going wireless and therefore get better speeds via this cabled route.

Thanks for the advice. How future proof is this plug and gigabit switch? Don't need 'em at the moment but I can see myself purchasing a set in a couple of years. Don't want to break the bank. Worthy investment for the future or just wait?
this is something you fit and forget. which i did years ago. 2x 500.
thanks for the headsups on this offer. but did feel i would make better use out of a 2000Mbps version.
while not on offer! at £84.99 it fits the bill. ie. speed/2ports/passtrough. plus i like to fit and forget.

I'd wait as there's always some deal around the corner on Powerline plugs. Plus, for any given price point, they have been getting steadily faster over the years. I've been using my Gigabit switches for years so they have proven futureproof so far.
Can I buy 1 more of these also and have 3 on the go?

Yes, I bought two pairs of these when they were last down in price. So have four on the go.
Deal already expired £49.99 now.
