This is the first 'AV2000' standard homeplug/powerline adapter to be released in the UK. I've been waiting months for this to be released so that I can take full advantage of my 80mbit fibre connection (which my Trendnet 'AV1200' standard adapters aren't fast enough for).

Currently on pre-order at Amazon, but at the cheapest price in the UK. A few other UK retailers have been carrying them for a few weeks so it shouldn't be long until Amazon get stock.

I get 50mbps on budget 200mbps one's. Im surprised you cant get 80meg on 500mbps ones.
I've been using 500Mbps adapters with 10/100 Ethernet for a while now and I get every bit of my 70Mb internet connection.
Woo this looks nice. Hopefully it means av1200s will come down in price.
If you can't get 80Mbps on your av1200, you'll not get it either with the av2000s. The av1200s are 1200Mbs which is more than fast enough. The problem is the wiring in your home. Any chance you live in a pre-1990s house? I have some 1Gbps powerline that worked fine in my old place. Where I live now which is pre-1960s, they're okay for Internet but not for my 1Gbps network. So I've neatly installed some cat6 cable. Everything works great now and a lot cheaper than powerline plugs, and doesn't add extra to the electricity bill. All depends what's good for you of course.

The other reason for getting this is to increase range.
Although the PHY rate will not fall as quickly as wireless, the signal still has to follow the cable which will be longer than the 'line of site' distance between the two points. Sometimes very much longer if more than one ring is involved. In the real world the maximum transmission rate is only about one third of the advertised PHY rate.
The maximum range is normally quoted as about 300 metres. With an ethernet signal, the range problem is generally one of interference from the reflected signal.
If you have poor mains wiring then that may be the reason for poor speeds..... they are handy to have but I've ditched mine and go for Cat6 cables instead. My powerline adaptors started to drop connections and it seemed a rogue neighbours powerline adaptor was the culprit (slightly worrying!)
For those who have issues with their Poweline adapters I would recommend changing brands and see if things improve. I was using Netgear adapters for around a year but one of them kept dropping out at night, swapping them around didn't help (the issue remained in the same room) and I couldn't narrow it down to an appliance causing interference.

I bought a pair of TP-Link adapters (TL-PA4020KIT) a few weeks back and that solved the problem. Link speeds between the four adapters virtually doubled and I was now getting my full 70mb download speed at every adapter (I have four adapters, 2 TP-Link and 2 Netgear) We live in a 1950's house last re-wired in the mid 1980's.
just a heads up for people not in the know I'm an I.T. engineer and I come across poor installations of power line adapters all the time. number 1 rule of power line adapters remove any surge protected power extension bars from your house as they cause huge instability and speed degradation current av1200 plugs will easily pull 80mbps and more I think I managed 155mbps with mine
Yeah same here. I have AV500 (WiFi enabled - actually got them up for sale for £30 delivered now) and I got 80meg connection with those bad boys. I was only getting 15meg going through a surge protector so plug them in directly into the socket.

I've had computers and TVs wiped out without surge protection. What would you put in their place after taking the extensions out?
if you speak to an electrician they will tell you that is what your consumer unit is for deals with the issue at source

That is because of how your house is wired!
