    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What’s this?)
    The Netgear 500 Mbps power-line adaptor kits are excellent. They are simple and intuitive. I like the LED indicators to show you the link rates and possible speeds you are achieving. The connection set-up is very easy you plug them both in and they synch up automatically.

    I have other power-line adaptors and these are nice as I do not have a wire connecting to the wall-socket. Also these have an extra outlet, should I wish to use it. My view was I rather not as I could overheat it. These are sturdy and I am sure it would be fine, but I wouldn’t want the wife running the fan heater or hair-dryer through it.

    The other nice feature on these are the ability to chose the optimal location, I guess this is based on some test between the pair on probable speed, but it does give you an indication of what socket is suitable. In all honesty, in my home it showed that all were suitable. I guess this maybe as the wiring is pretty new or my home is not vast.

    I get excellent coverage and I can stream videos without any issue, I like them so much I ordered 2 more and an 4 port switch.

    One thing I am disappointed with is that they could have added extra ports. It would be better to have an extra port rather than me buying a new port switch just for an extra cable. Two ports would be ideal for the TV and SKY. As most would have a set-up of two items that need Ethernet connections. I do have Wi-Fi on the TV, but I prefer the LAN connection, it just seems more stable.

    So, overall excellent, one star taken away due to only having one port and not additional ports, considering other power-line adaptors have 1-3 ports built-in. I cannot fault it though, it is simple and I achieve great bandwidth.

    This might sound far-fetched, but this heavenly little device has actually transformed my life (including my love life!)

    I live in the top of a London town house (third floor). The walls are thick, and the floors are many. Also, the Atlantic is huge, and thence is where my husband lives 🙁 AND NOW I CAN ACTUALLY SEE HIM ON SKYPE! And he is not made of one pixel! No! Nor even 3 pixels!! But many many glorious pixels! :):):) My PC is now enjoying a wired connection, and it is faster than a fast thing that leaves a shovel quickly!

    AND!

    I can watch Amazon Prime movies and TV programs on my TV via my wi-fi ready blu-ray player without the signal disappearing and never coming back, as this little baby right here creates a wi-fi hotspot right in my room for any additional devices which don’t have the honour of being on the wired connection.

    Thank you Santa! And Netgear! And Amazon!!!

    Verified Purchase(What is this?)
    I have my broadband with Virgin Media on the top package and this has just been upgraded to 200mbps (woohoo!). My setup involves my Super Hub connecting about 12 foot via ethernet to a Powerline adapter and then my main computer is at the other end of the power adapter on the next floor up.

    It’s always difficult to see how fast you might expect to get from these different powerline adapters so I thought I’d share my experiences with you to give you an idea of relative performance.

    Here are the performances of different connections to my super hub (via speed test.net):

    *Note I have not included Uploaded as all of them are 11 – 12.5mbps.

    HTC One – Wireless N – Upstairs – 20mbps
    HTC One – Wireless N – Next to Router – 80mbps
    TP-LINK 500mbps to TP-LINK 500mbps (Upstairs) – 85mbps
    Netgear 1200mbpt to Netgear 1200mbps (Upstairs) – 140mbps *edit: I have now reached 170mbps
    Direct Ethernet Connection to Super Hub – 200mbps!

    So there you go. I have almost doubled my download speed by upgrading from my TP-LINK 500 adapters. I never expected to get the full speed. The 170 is a best result and generally I got around 136 with some tests at 125 (*edit: on the first day).

    In reality, it’s quite hard to find internet servers that can actually send you files as quick as you can receive them so this is a great setup. If you really want full use out of your super-connection then you still need to go hard wired.

    Steam, for the gamers out there, gave me peak download speed of 16.4MB/s – 7 mins for an 8GB file! My ping is around 10ms on speedtest.

    Note that I will have to wait and see what the reliability of this device is, but the speeds are excellent.

    *Edit: A few days later and, unfortunately, reliability is a major problem. I’m getting disconnected regularly… so I’m going to try a few combinations without using the pass through but I will most likely return this device in the next day or so. A real shame because the speeds are excellent.
