2.0 out of 5 stars Overheating under load, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Devolo dLAN 500 AVtriple+ Adapter (Electronics)
First - I have two Devolo homeplugs from the 200mbit range which are tip top. They offer good bandwidth (110-130mbit) and are stable on an always on basis

I purchased the "Devolo dLAN 500 AVtriple+ Adapter" when we moved to a new place with a need for additional connectivity.
For over 6 months, I saw no issues with it since the traffic going to it was bound for the internet (11mbit max); there was the occasional hang but I figured that once a month for a consumer product was acceptable
Recently I started moving files from one server to another with this homeplug being used to move files at a sustained rate of 48 mbit (6ish megabyte). My homeplug overheated after 20 minutes of use. (temperature in the flat is 21 degrees C).
After a week of troubleshooting I am pretty certain that the root cause is overheating.

So that's my story. I am hoping that my adapter performance was an anomaly.
Last words - I love the two 200 series Devolos! my 500 is not useful longterm for anything other than internet browsing
(Purchase End of May 2012)
Cheers all
