Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: D-LINK Powerline 500M AV Starter Kit (Accessory)
Research on the web gave conflicting results as to which brand was best, but this seemed to come out well overall.
Not disappointed with the result - as with all powerline adapters, these will NOT give you a 500Mbps connection; all devices with provide a link at a lower rate in practice. What matters is relative performance, both to other brands in the same category, and as a fraction of the 'advertised' max.
I'm getting (according to the supplied utility) a connection of between 250-300Mbps on the downstairs circuit - this depends on the time of day, it's lower when lots of electrical appliances are switched on.
This drops to 100-150Mbps when the adapters are separated by two floors. This still beats a wireless connection by a long way.
