5.0 out of 5 stars Home Plug AV 13 Jun 2011
By M. J. Hunter VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
A brilliant solution to the problem of adding the plethora of equipment that can be connected to the internet without actually installing a network. Your house wiring is utilised instead.
Up and running in a few minutes, it really is plug and play. Don't bother with the supplied software it isn't really needed unless you are heavily into diagnostics.
I bought two of these together with a pass-through adaptor to allow me to connect TV, Blu-Ray player, Freesat box and Wii to the net. Because these units have triple inputs they really save space. I then used the single adaptor to connect to my router. Worked like a dream.
I chose these units after reading various reviews, I had originally thought I would go with Devolo units, but other sources indicated that these units were not only cheaper, but faster too.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly brilliant, but not perfect 9 Feb 2011
By LJ
This does pretty much exactly what it promises, giving you effectively three ethernet ports from any mains socket in your house, and I use it to connect my printserver, PC and network storage.

However, if you are running any PC game through this that is sensitive to latency problems, you will find it annoying and frustrating. I got about the same through this as I did with a direct wireless connection (200ms), so for the PC I swapped it for an individual device with just one port. That reduced the latency to around 100-140ms. Still not great, but the connection is at least reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine and compatible with other brands 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
I am writing this for other users who might find themselves in my position. I wanted to extend my ethernet over mains set up but as a bit of an early adopter I had a set of three eConnect homeplugs, bought from I can't remember where. Since I bought these the 200Meg standard was firmed up and my plugs I know for a fact were not compliant.
So I had the situation that I needed more ports but maybe needed to start over with a totally new set of compatible plugs.
Fortunately after a lot of searching around I found a firmware upgrade that brings the eConnect homeplu units into standard compliance. ( the firmware was not being made available by eConnect- think they went bust or have since disappeared) but the chipsets I suspect are fairly generic and the other brand software and firmware flashed into the units OK.
Now I needed a guinea pig to try it with so I opeted for the Solwise units. I had already read they worked well with some other brands so figured they were worth a shot.
And the result is first class, I now have the extension to the network I needed and full compatibility with the older eConnect units.
No complaints over performance, seems fine. Recommend these where you need to mix brands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product 2 Mar 2012
Useful device which easily connected to other solwise unit connected to server. Three outlets useful for near TV etc.

Transfer speeds very high despite going from upstairs one end of house to downstairs at opposite end 120 Meg file in less than 20 seconds!!!.

Tip - I wanted to change the default Private Network Name. Followed instructions using supplied software. This would change the wire connected unit but not the other one (instructions said it should!). Found out that if you wire connect each one in turn to router and change the network name they will connect with a name you choose - recommended for increased security.

Hence one star off for software not working.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot faster than the 85Mb units 13 July 2011
Verified Purchase
I've just replaced two of my 85mb solwise homeplug units with two of the 200Mb AV units.
Copying files improved from about 700KB to 5MB, reducing the time taken to copy a 5Gb file from 3.5 hours to about 30 minutes.
Significant improvement in my view, so well worth the upgrade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for BRAVIA 14 April 2014
By 60Griff
Verified Purchase
I'm using this for my upstairs smart TV which requires a wired connection. It supplies 85 mbps, which is slightly slower than specificed because the electrical signal has to go across my consumer unit (or 'distribution board') but some units (older Devolos) don't even work in this scenario! My internet speed is only 11 mbps so internet video is full speed, and I have no complaints whatsoever.
