The limitations of the review system means, the review covers all products in the range.The BT TV YouView box requires a cable connection as opposed to WiFi. Hence the reason for a Powerline unit. The 408s I ordered were returned as after initial set up when I placed the units in place they refused to work come what may. Trendnet 24/7 support said they would phone me back within 3 hours...still waiting. The 410 units ordered as a replacement work but be aware that the WiFi code on the Unit and Labels will NOT work as it is alphanumeric and the default setup as supplied will only accept a numeric code - TIP just use the numbers-ignore the letters. It is possible to set the unit up with a cable and computer ( as you do with Routers) - fine if like me you are techno happy but not if you just want it to work out of the box. The Trendnet support response to this issue was quite indifferent. "But you can change the set up by login in with a cable"... The point was lost..

As with all Powerlines the effectiveness can be affected by equipment used on the circuits.The BT TV YouView internet connection is working so the units are doing their job.

So living in a three bedroom concrete and steel house doesn't help when you are trying to get good fast internet upstairs. So instead of drilling holes and feeding an Ethernet cable up to my room, I thought I'd look into the rave of Powerline adapters. I'm glad I did.

Firstly, I'm going to start by telling you the negative point. Yes that's right I've only got one. There is no pass through plug. So with this you do lose the use of your plug. So keep that in mind when you are thinking about purchasing this. I knew this before I bought it so it doesn't really bother me, it's just something to keep in mind.

Apart from that, this product works great. It literally is plug and play. It comes nicely packaged in a small box, with two 1.5m Ethernet cables, and of course the two adapters. Basically you plug one in near your router, connecting an ethernet cable between it and your router, and the other in the room of your choice. Connecting the Ethernet cable between it and your PC, Tv, PS3, PS4, Xbox, DVD player...basically anything that needs an Internet connection. It works. In five minutes I had a solid connection to my room upstairs, giving me download speeds of over 10.00Mbps, which for where I live is really good. Speeds will vary depending on your Internet connection from your provider.
Also comes with LED indicator lights to let you know if it's all connected and working properly.
Green = Best connection
Amber = Better connection
Red = Good connection.
Mine varies between Green and Amber so it just shows you how far away it can be and still gets a great connection. I'm a good 20m or more away from the router if I was to walk to it.

I Bought these to get a more stable connection between the PC upstairs and the router downstairs. When connected on both ends to main plug sockets in the house ring main, I got 71Mb/s internet speed and transferring files internally I got 11MB/s which I think is the limit of my router. Compare this to a wireless setup: internet speed 28Mb/s, internal transfer speed 1.4MB/s.

When I connected one of them to a socket in an extension lead, the internal transfer speed dropped to 7MB/s but it was still a more stable transfer rate than doing it wirelessly. Connecting to extension leads both ends dropped the transfer speed further so if you get these, try lots of combinations until you find the optimum. I also purchased a 5M Ethernet lead to connect the upstairs PC to a plug socket in the ring main which has enabled me to reach the limit of the router.

You can also add a third one if you have additional devices around the house. note that each time you plug in one of these it will take while to settle and the speed will increase a little during the first few minutes.

I did another review for the single adapter. This is a great performing product the wifi rarely drops and we noticed a difference in speed from our previous develo 500mbs powerline adapters. These are faster. The plug and play installation is great and wifi capability is a must have. The delivery was fast too. Not much more to say. I did a lot of research to buy the right product and these were voted some of the best on the market and I can see why. Hassle free and good performing.

Bought two of these to extend internet in an office as router Wifi couldn't reach upper floors. Wiring is quite old in building but it still seems to work great. A little drop in performance due to the distance between units but still achieving 85% of original speed from router.

Have now connected a repeater switch to the upstairs unit which gives strong Wifi through whole building.

Well, to begin with this kit is a significant upgrade to my previous TP-Link TL-PA211 AV200 Nano 200Mbps.
I'm with Virgin and get their boosted 50 meg broadband, with this kit I achieve those speeds MOST of the time. There can be fluctuations throughout the day due to interference from things connected throughout the house (Wireless doorbells, extension plugs connected right next to your adapter, or in my case charging your laptop).
This kit provides a consistent connection most of the time, compared to my previous TP-Link, which had sudden drop outs for some reason - this is great in that respect.

For avid gamers this is excellent, do not be fooled by PS3/PS4 speed tests, I get speeds of around 30 meg on my PS4 and those tests are unreliable, whereas running speed tests on my laptop gets speeds of around 50-54 meg (when there is no interference)

If you do get really slow speeds, don't be disheartened like I was - just mess around with things connected nearby and see if it makes a difference.

Only time will tell if these adapters deteriorate over time or provide the same great speeds for years to come.
