Great at first but now doesn't work
on 19 November 2011
Had this product for just over a month.
Worked great for a few weeks - like most reviews on here, just plug them in, press the sync button for 5 or so seconds on each of the two plugs, and after a short wait, they link up.
Went to use them the other day, and no matter what I tried, they just would not connect to each other. I even tried plugging them in in the same 2-socket power outlet to make certain it wasn't a quirk of my (3 year old house) wiring.
I finally got them to work again, after leaving them unplugged for 24 hours, then overnight, they lost sight of each other again with no intervention from me.
I haven't used anything advanced on these (eg the CD software) so I can't say I've broken anything in their settings - I'm just using the basics. Just used the one and only single button on the darned thing and no amount of turning it on, off, holding it for different lengths of time makes a blind bit of difference.
Requested a return to Amazon - willing to try another pair - but hope the replacements continue to work longer than these first two :( Low rating as I'm not dense when it comes to technology and these things frustrated the hell out of me wasting a couple of hours trying to get them to work.
Must be an unlucky pair of homeplugs!!
