Good under the right conditions.

Having used the Devolo 200AV plugs for several years I purchased 2 of these to speed up the 2 points in the house that required more speed (between the server and mediacentre). With the 200AV plugs I got a connection maxing out at 100 (so half speed, but the actual speed when transferring files was more in the region of 30-40), I was hoping for atleast 50% more with these 500 plugs, but they actually connected more or less with the same speed as the 200AV did.
In other rooms I would see a faster connection (400), but as it did not increase the speed between these 2 sockets I returned to Amazon for a refund and will be going down the wired route instead.
I still highly recommend the homeplug in general, if running a cable isnt easy/feasible they are great compared to Wifi. I just wanted to highlight that the 500AV is no better than the 200AV if you are not seeing good speeds with the 200AV to start off with.
