I wasn't sure about this type of unit as I had heard some bad reports on plugin networking but these are real good, we have a low internet signal in our village and wireless was useless but with these Devolo units, I am running remote computers, Internet TV and Freesat box, they never drop out and we are able to use all the internet based services supplied on Freeview and freesat and not a glitch in sight. We purchased the through plug type so that we didn't lose the use of the power socket. They might seem a bit pricey but they really do the job and with no cables running round the house it's all good stuff.

We had previously had a disastrous time trying to use TP-Link homeplugs. After spending hours installing and resetting them, and then following instructions from the Help line too, they never worked. So we had to return them to Amazon and, with some trepidation, ordered these Devolo homeplugs.

To our relief, the Devolo homeplugs worked straight away, out of the box, no fuss, no problems at all. We have Windows 7, Mac computer, Mac laptop and TV but our wireless signal was weak to non existent in some upstairs rooms. That has now improved hugely. The Devolo homeplugs are more expensive than the TP-Link ones but they just worked effortlessly and having a socket on each plug is really useful.

I have nothing but praise for this product, especially after our previous experience with TP-Link.

After using a pair of excellent Solwise home plugs (85 Mbit/s) for a while, it was a joy to start using this Devolo package. The 500 Mbit/s has made a difference but to be honest, I am not using them to their full potential. At least I have future-proofed myself by buying these - unless 500 Mbit/s becomes old hat soon!

I use the plugs to stream music and photos from my PC to my TV. I also use them to view BBC iPlayer over the internet. In addition, I use them to connect my netbook to my PC for remote operations. In all cases, the data transmission is perfect.

The ability to be able to plug in other electrical items including socket extensions has alone sold this for me. Also, the plugs do not become that warm - unlike my Solwise plugs. The Cockpit software is simple to use and allows you to check on speeds between the three plugs. It also allows you to apply security (instead of using the onboard switches on each plug).

I was impressed to receive three CAT 5e Ethernet cables as part of the package and this allowed me to have all plugs up and running in no time.

One caveat and this has been mentioned by other reviewers. You will not be able to use these plugs in sockets are less than 8cm from the floor/shelf. In fact, to plug in the Ethernet cable you will ideally need at least 13cm free height. I did consider docking one star for this but it would be grossly unfair as everything else is brilliant.

I highly recommend these plugs.

I got these to replace the 3 Devolo 200 AV Plus plugs I had. I was getting ~180Mbps across the network according to the DLAN Cockpit software so I was hoping for up to 400Mbps with these. Oh no, in fact I'm currently getting 162Mbps - 250Mbps over the various connections. Not impressed at all but hopefully a firmware update will resolve this - I've contacted Devolo but have had no reply...

UPDATE 18/11/2011: Firmware 5.2.3 has been released and with it the connection speeds reported by the Devolo Cockpit software have improved. I'm now seeing over 200 Mbps on all of the connections. Better than the old plugs now but still not massively (I'm adding 1 star to my review score).

The cool feature with the new firmware is that it updates all of the plugs 'in situ' instead of having to unplug them all and update via a direct connection to your PC.

This is so easy to use and makes life so much easier than wireless. You plug one Ethernet cable into one a socket in your router. The other end into one of the plugs, which plugs into the wall. Plug the router (or extension lead) into the plug. Connect your other items from the wall near your console/tv/NAS/desktop/etc and plug the cable into the plug and your appliance. It is all automatic and immediately on the internet. My son is very happy watching films from the network server on his XBox now, whereas before the wireless wasn't strong enough.

Extremely worth the money.

I purchased these to replace some "value" units I purchased a couple of years ago. I wanted something that I could add to at a later date. I chose this "branded " product based on reviews seen here. I am very happy with my purchase . I have placed a nas storage in a hiding place away from my pc so hopefully in the event of loss I will have a backup I can use.
Very pleased indeed

This kit is fantastic! it's what every bit of tech hardware should be! it feels like it was designed by humans rather than geeks... all you have to do is plug it in and off it goes...that easy! even the 'cockpit' software is incredibly simple and intuitive. I've had Netgear kit in the past and unless you're a geek you can forget it...I don't want to know about SSIDs or anything else I want to use stuff immediately not spend days trying to figure it out !

Thank you Devolo for employing pragmatic intelligence in the design of your gear - it's something that is sadly lacking when techy people design techy stuff, you need dumb humans involved too!

Oh and for Mac users everywhere...this is perfect!!
