5.0 out of 5 stars Neat Solution 28 Oct 2011
I upgraded, recently, my broadband package to BT's Infinity. This means that my PC (upstairs) is now remote from the master socket. My original intention was to wire the PC directly to the master socket with a long and complicated network cable....until I read about using the existing electrical wiring as an alternative for a "wired" connection. I bought the DEVOLO pass through starter kit and now I have a very good system without the need for messy new wiring. Neat solution. No doubt. And it works first time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good under the right conditions. 19 Jun 2012
By Rune
Verified Purchase
Having used the Devolo 200AV plugs for several years I purchased 2 of these to speed up the 2 points in the house that required more speed (between the server and mediacentre). With the 200AV plugs I got a connection maxing out at 100 (so half speed, but the actual speed when transferring files was more in the region of 30-40), I was hoping for atleast 50% more with these 500 plugs, but they actually connected more or less with the same speed as the 200AV did.

In other rooms I would see a faster connection (400), but as it did not increase the speed between these 2 sockets I returned to Amazon for a refund and will be going down the wired route instead.

I still highly recommend the homeplug in general, if running a cable isnt easy/feasible they are great compared to Wifi. I just wanted to highlight that the 500AV is no better than the 200AV if you are not seeing good speeds with the 200AV to start off with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but never 500mbs 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase
I don't want to single out this particular Homeplug for criticism, because all manufacturers do the same. They tout a headline theoretical speed limit which is really not achievable in real life. It's a bit like ISPs selling you an ADSL line that promises 24mbs, only to discover that you're getting just 6mbs.

Anyway, these are fast units but do not reach anything like the quoted 500mbs. The best I'm getting is 150mbs between two adjacent rooms. This isn't bad, but not as fast as I'd expect. Perhaps it's my wiring, but I find that with the previous models (AVLan 200) I was getting 100mbs. You would have thought that a pair of 500mbs units like these could achieve something a little faster than that.

Despite these lacklustre statistics, I've tried many different Homeplug manufacturers and Devolo remain my favourite in terms of reliability and ease of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to install and use 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I previously had a dLAN 200 AV used on my 20 year old house and also used it a lot in a 100 year old house with much older ring-main wiring. It worked OK between ring-mains on different floors, despite warnings about potential problems from the manufactures. I gave my dLAN 200 set to my girlfriend who needed something simple and easy to use, and then researched for a replacement. Obviously from this feedback, I went for the dLAN 500 AV - because I now trusted Devolo to produce a quality product, and that is despite the relatively high price compared to some other makes.

So, what do I think about the product? Well, I am delighted with how easy it is to use these Devolo devices and I have had absolutely no problems with them: that is despite warnings to the contrary about potential problems with certain arrangements of house wiring. I know that these devices don't reach the full speed advertised on the box, but it works very well extending my old 100 Mbps LAN to wherever I need it in the house. I plan to upgrade to 1 Gbps and access the TV LAN socket, so we shall see how it fares with those more challenging tasks.

It's extremely simple to set up: just plug in and go. You don't really need to install the software unless there is an issue with the speed and connection, or the security settings. Even so, the software has a very simple user interface that novices should have no problem in using - and it gives a clear graphical view of the status of the connections between the various mains-LAN devices operating on the mains.

I particularly like the pass-through mains socket. This helps to avoid the problem of loosing a socket to the dLAN unit, and also needing to use a multi-way extension for all the devices around a PC.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slow, Slow, Slow! 30 Jan 2013
By Mark S
Having used a pair of 200MBit/s AV Adapters for a few years, I decided to upgrade to 500AV as I wasn't achieving the 100MBit/s that my internet connection provides.

Upon plugging in and installing the Devolo Dashboard, I was delighted to see a reported speed of 111MBit/s. However the actual tested speed between the two devices was only 37MBit/s, the same I achieved with the 200 AV!

I tested with a set of Zyxel 500 AV, and was able to obtain a speed of 96MBit/s so it isn't due to my power lines or set-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple and so efficient 12 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
After running my Western Digital TV Live Streaming Media Player using wireless, I was getting annoyed with the impaired performance at various busy times. Using a Belkin Smart TV Link was a huge improvement on the Sony Dongle I first connected with, but still annoying - great once something is playing but large pauses when fetching content from my network drive. Also seemed to need a PC running, which I think was something to do with the Belkin Wirelss thingy (have now established it is a function of the settings of the media player and a red-herring in this review).

Thought I'd give these a go - superb performance with seldom or any delays and runs as long as the router is on. Now to get another one for my wife to use with her laptop.

Set-up is literally plug in and go. Only quibble is that the LAN cables supplied are very short (1M) - luckily I had a couple of longer ones knocking around. Do need to take care to make sure the Plug is directly in the socket and the only one on a double socket - why I went for the 'Plus' variant which allows pass through power.

EDITED REVIEW

Have subsequently purchased an additional dLAN AV500+ plug and 2 x dLAN AV200+ plugs - all three of these had 2 metre cables!
