    TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with four integrated Gigabit ports, model TPL-405E.

    New media center devices such as internet televisions, media players, network video recorders, receivers, and game consoles are now network ready-respective devices are capable of connecting to and streaming HD files directly from the Internet. TRENDnet's 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter connects up to four media center devices to the Internet simultaneously using existing electrical lines.

    Network one adapter to a router and plug another adapter into any outlet on the same electrical system for instant high speed network access. TRENDnet adapters connect automatically to each other over a secure encrypted signal with no CD installation required. For additional security, press the Sync button to change existing encryption keys.

    LED displays convey device status for easy power management and troubleshooting. Embedded power saving technology lowers power consumption by up to 70% in standby mode-resulting in measurable power savings, given that the device is always on.

    "Powerline solutions offer a stable high speed connection, to stream HD video, using the existing electrical lines in your home," stated Zak Wood, director of global marketing for TRENDnet. "With so many network ready devices around and including the TV, TRENDnet's TPL-405E helps solve the growing demand for multiple high performance network connections."

    The 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter, model TPL-405E, comes with a three year limited warranty and is currently shipping to TRENDnet's online and retail partners.
    The MSRP for the TPL-405E is US $109.99.

    But will it be as slow as all other powerline adapters? I like the solution, much more stable than wireless, but it never was as fast as marketed to be. Could barely stream HD content on a 200 MBPS unit.

    I don't have alot of experience with powerline adapters, but I just got this one- http://www.bestbuy.com/site/NETGEAR... Kit/3536038.p?id=1218410802490&skuId=3536038 . Granted, I don't have the fastest internet connection, but this is what results I get with that adapter and my 3000/768 DSL.

    Older powerline adapters were slower than wifi g
    This one claims 500mbps
    it should be true, maybe near 400mbps in practice, ok its not gigabit lan but you don't ruin your home or office installing UTP cables

    I didn't see it on the website, but I would really dig this if it acted as a switch, too.

    I've been using powerline adapters for some years now.

    They get about 10mb/sec constantly which is better than any wifi out there. Most importantly, it's stable.
