2.0 out of 5 stars Works really well.................for a few days !, 8 Feb. 2009

This review is from: Max Value 200Mbps Home Plug, Double Unit Pack (Electronics)
Max Value 200Mbps Home Plug, Double Unit Pack

I bought the powerline adapter to provide internet access for a PC and an X-Box 360. The router is downstairs and the PC and X-box are upstairs. Like many of the reviewers I was amazed at how easy the unit was to set up. Literally plug one LAN cable from the router in the powerline adapter and plug it in to the mains. Do the same thing with the other adapater at the PC end and you have got yourself a fast and stable LAN connection. Unfortunately, like some other reviewers, one of the adapaters died after two weeks. The units may be cheap but the build quality would appear to be suspect. I have returned the units to Amazon and bought the much more expensive Netgear equivalent. I hope this is more reliable !

I have seem comment that the Netgear product only works where both units are on the same circuit/fuse, whilst the Max Value apparently works even where they are on different circuits (e.g upstairs and downstairs). Seems odd since the principle behind both seems to be the same. Can anyone confirm/rebut?

I found these homeplugs to be great for 3 months now they just wont talk to each other. They are just a waste of money.

I bought these almost one year ago, and one of the units has stopped working. I'm currently working with Amazon UK Customer Service/Returns department on how to resolve this... its a shame as I'd been happy with them till recently.

I've seen the reports of these devices not working, or failing after a short time.
These must be odd occurrences, as I have had a pair of these working continuously for almost 8 years now with no problems whatsoever.
