Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Devolo dLAN 500 AV Triple+ Add-On Powerline Adapter (3 GB LAN Ports, Pass Through, 500 Mbps) (Electronics)
These things get nowhere near the rate claimed by Devolo. Highest transfer I have got is only 160Mbit/sec.
I've tried everything to speed this up, including running a isolated set up powered by a UPS with two AV500's on the same isolated block. That's when I saw the peak of 160Mbits/s.
On my ring main I achieve less - around 100-130MBits/sec.
If you have AV200's don't bother upgrading - you'll not notice any difference.
One other thing, these things are huge. The pictures don't really show it. Your sockets need to be at least 115mm above the floor or you will not be able to plug these in.
On the plus side, they are easy to set up and you get a connection that is generally faster than wifi and a lot more reliable. Just don't expect the advertised 500Mbits or anything close.

It will not get a faster connection than your broadband connection!

It will between connected devices. Internet speed will obviously be limited to your broadband speed.
