4.0 out of 5 stars neat and effective, 20 May 2013
This review is from: Netgear AV200 Nano 200Mbps Powerline Adapter - Twin Pack (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This provides a neat and effective way of running your internet signal from your router to devices in another room which don't have wifi. The technology has been around for a few years now, and there is no doubt that it works. I guess quite a lot of people will be buying this to connect in their Smart TV to the network (given that this tends to be a cheaper and more reliable solution than paying the extra for the TV wifi dongle) - and this was precisely what I did.

The results are good - this is basically plug and play - the two ends finding each other fairly quickly. Transfer rate is what I expected (it's never that good for me) - but worth noting that there is a higher capacity version if you are lucky enough to enjoy great internet speed. In any event it copes very well with iplayer and streams without stutter.

These are smaller than average, but you do need a separate socket to use them. They won't work from an extension and you can't plug through them - so effectively you need a double socket in order to plug your router in and to power what ever it is you are using at the other end. Apart from that these are a plug in and forget (unless you are worried about the power consumption - they do run a little warm). Good product at a good price.

Well I am amazed - and pleased for you. I tried one end in a gang and no joy - so I assumed like others I have used that this was not an option. So I am going to try a different gang now.....
