I bought these a few weeks ago now and for the first 2 weeks I was having to restart both devices every day due to the powerline connectivity dropping.

I started reading around to see if anyone else was experiencing the same issues and found the large number of 1/5 ratings on Amazon - which obviously got me a little worried. Now up until then I hadn't really tried to resolve the issues as I was spending a lot of time away from home (with work), but having read the reviews I decided to have a proper go at fixing the connectivity issue before returning these for a refund.

A quick visit to Belkin's website later and I had the firmware update software on my laptop. Then 10 mins later I'd got it installed on both devices. That was 7 days ago now and I haven't had a single issue since.

Bandwidth is as expected (given my router is the basic one from Sky) and connectivity is very stable. Hopefully people who have had issues will find this useful!

I bought these to replace the 85Mbps Devolo ones I had been using for a while. I have been using the Devolo ones for a couple of years with no problems.

I decided to swap them out for these new Belkin ones as an upgrade.

My Devolo ones have a theoretical maximum throughput of 85Mbps and I reliably got 22Mbps.

These new Belkin HD ones have a theoretical maximum of 1Gbps - i.e 1,000Mbps.

I achieved 30Mbps, now this is obviously 36% improvement. But no way near what I was expecting. I can't help wondering if the 200Mbps Devolos with the mains pass through would have been a better buy (I have to run one end via a power strip which apparently reduces performance - this would be avoided with a passthrough powerline plug).

The Devolos come with a software app, which gives you a little more flexibility too.

I bought this product because my router is on the ground floor and my PC is on the second. I tried using my wifi on the faster N band but was not happy with the reception, speed and occasional drops in signal.

Having looked at these devices for awhile now I was pleased to see that there was a 1Gbp version out (be aware that this is just a theoretical maximum speed and not the real world speed).

The items arrived the next day as promised. The first thing I did on unpacking them was to upgrade the firmware, this took no more than 5 minutes, I got all the instructions and files from belkins website.

I then plugged one in next to my router directly into a power socket, the other upstairs by my PC and bingo worked first time with a blue light indicating a excellent connection. This was with the PC device plugged into an extension lead.

I copied a 100mb file using my wifi and it took 2.5 minutes, I copied the same file using this and it took 25 seconds. I tried plugging the PC one into a surge protected extension and the quality dropped and the device showed an amber light (I did not bother testing the speed in that state).

Please note that my router and PC Ethernet ports are 1Gbp. If both or one of your devices are not then I doubt you will get the maximum out of these.

I should point out that my house is ten years old so I guess the wiring is in good condition.

The only downside is that there is no pass through on this model so you do lose the use of one power socket, however I do know that one is due out that has a pass through very soon, I just could not wait.

I did not enable the encryption on my setup as I monitor my network anyway so I can't comment on what effect this may have on speed.

I bought a pair of this 2 days ago, plugged them in, and the first experience was very good:
They instantly linked up with the blue light indicating a good connection between the two units, and I started attempting to stream some HD content across my home network and was pleased that the 720p stuff that wouldn't quite work before with my old 85Mbps rated Homeplugs, did now work.

However, from there, it was all very downhill.

The next day, the connection between the two rooms appeared to drop completely, which upon initial diagnosis appeared to be because the DHCP server (built-in to dsl router) in one room wasn't giving IP addresses to the computers in the other room. After initially suspecting the router's DHCP server was dodgy, and giving out static IPs, I was still having no end of problems are eventually traced the problem to the Powerline line adapters (why I didn't think it was this sooner I don't know - perhaps because I had so much Hope invested in these units and I really Wanted them to work - I really did).

They just randomly don't route packets between the two ends. They worked for a bit, and a bit faster than the rest of the products on the market but this gain in speed comes with a terrible sacrifice of reliability.

They might work well in some homes. For me, they are not fit for purpose. I'm sending mine back.

Some might say my expectations were too high, but my expectations are this;

If the wirings's good, it should run at High speeds
If the units can't maintain a high speed connection reliably, the speed should be reduced until reliability is achieved.
