3.0 out of 5 stars An extremely efficient and useful product but ..., 18 April 2012
This review is from: Devolo dLAN 500 AVtriple+ Adapter (Electronics)
Like all the other Devolo dLAN 500AV+ adapters it works well and is a pleasure to install - if it suits your set-up it can be highly recommended.

However, this last point above is very relevant. At its current (at time of writing review) competitive price on Amazon it may represent good value, but at its previous price levels or high street prices its value is debatable.

It is also great if you need just two or three connections. Probably enough for most I guess?

However, you can arrange the same multi-point flexibility with more outlets and often cheaper by the use of a cheap ethernet switch, which is typically less than the premium between a one port and three port adapter. I recently picked up such a switch for 3.50.

Good point but at at 3.5 you'll only get 100MB, you need 1000MB = 1GB to cover the investment of Delovo 500, otherwise go delovo 200...

The aforementioned switch actually was a Gigabit one! Also even if your assumption were correct at typical prices for the Adapter and 'normal' cheap prices for Ethernet switches you'll still probably be 'in-pocket'.
