Good price, shame no pass though power. I'll keep hoping they drop back to £29 like they were a couple of weeks ago when I missed the deal.

i'm pretty sure that was a misprice

nice find at this price

yeah £29 was a mis-price but amazon still fulfilled the orders i think.

sigh i just ordered the TL-PA211 yesterday for £40. suppose mine ones are smaller and fit on an extension socket without blocking the socket next to it.

Just to note, it's not recommended to use homeplugs in extension sockets.

Google around, there are many cases why not.

It's ok as long as there's no surge protection to the extension lead, works fine for me on the Asus 200mbps twin pack I got from amazon for £31 a few weeks back.

Does one homeplug from each pair need to be plugged into the router?

e.g. Can I buy 2 pairs, plug one into the router and then have access in 3 other rooms?

Does that mean you can't use them on extension/multi plugs?

Cheers

Yes you can - as already said just avoid surge protected sockets.

The performace may drop off if used in multi-plugs (I've seen some test results concluding that when I looked around). I use them at both ends on my set-up and it works fine. Will just depend on what you plan to use through it - Might notice it more if you use HD content

What sort of realistic throughput will you get with these for large file transfers?

Showing as 1 to 3 months before dispatch!

I think ebuyer may have these cheaper (would check but I'm on my phone) and they do the single units so you don't have to buy 2 starter kits if you only want 3.

Depends on your wiring and how far apart they are, if its over different ring mains and consumer units etc. In my experience anything from 40 - 80 mbps.

Bought these a couple of weeks ago from Amazon,for the life of me i can`t work out how to set them up for use with my sons xbox slim,any tips appreciated.

Correct, they have them for £34.98:

ebuyer

but no free shipping unless you top up the total spend to £50, otherwise cheapest delivery is £3.59 I think

Your mileage may vary... I bought some of these to connect my TV / Bluray player and WDTV to the rest of the network which wasn't easy to access by cable. Throughput was so bad that video kept stuttering. Replaced them with an Apple Airport Express set to bridge mode and had no issues since.

Just plug them in and they should work immediately.
Plug one into your router and one into the XBox and that should be it.
If you want an encrypted connection between them, you press the button on them to 'pair them'. This is only really necessary if you live in a shared house (they are phase controlled, so the data does not go beyond your electricity meter).
For me, I just plug them in and it all works - been using them since the oirginal 14Mbps versions, through the 85 Mbps and on to the 200Mbps versions.

Just thought I'd best reply to this; I don't know all the details about how the technology works, but I've found this to not be true from experience. I plugged mine in and even with 'security' enabled (no details given about what form that security takes), I was getting some very odd behaviour that turned out to be because someone on my street's router was interfering with mine. My usual router IP of 192.168.1.1 stopped working, and instead I could access another router's web interface at a different IP (found by checking the gateway on one of my PCs).

I did some reading about this (after yanking them out of the walls and replacing them with a really long ethernet cable), and it sounds like since several houses in the same street will be on the same phase, being phase-controlled means these can indeed connect to some other houses. 'Security' features are supposed to protect you from this though, so I would recommend to always enable it (and probably to find out what it actually means for your model...).

Currently out of stock at Amazon. Expired.
