Goodbye to wireless

A Kid's Review
This review is from: Max Value 200Mbps Home Plug, Double Unit Pack (Electronics)
I was a little dubious about these plugs when I first saw them. 200MBPS connection for less than half of what big brands cost. However I opened the very nondescript white packaging, plugged them in to the wall, installed supplied Ethernet cables from the home-plugs to router and computer and they just worked. Nothing else required. The supplied Ethernet cables are about 1 meter long.
There is a software disk in the both, this contains a utility to password protect the plugs and also shows the connection speed. I have tried several plugs in my house and get between 150 and 195 mbps depending on distance. Be aware though that most router have a 100mbps switch which will limit the connection speed for the network. Definitely faster and more stable than wireless.
I only marked this down due to the size of the plugs, they are not small, probably twice the size of a large mobile phone charger. They also run a little warm and are not pretty, but definitely do the job for a good price.
