TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the 200 Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Plug, model TPL-307E, and the 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit with Bonus Plug, model TPL-307E2K, which comes with two TPL-307E adapters. These high performance Powerline adapters network computers, televisions, and other devices using existing home or office electrical lines.

The TPL-307E replaces the bulkier TPL-304E series and features a compact product housing, built in electrical outlet, embedded power saving technology, and an advanced electrical noise filter which boosts performance by reducing background electrical signal interference.

The 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Plug works with any electrical outlet, creating a secure high speed building-wide network. A minimum of two adapters are required to create a Powerline network. Consumers don't lose the use of an outlet with the TPL-307E;a bonus electrical socket is built into the front face of the adapter itself. Connect one adapter to your network and plug another adapter into any outlet on your 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. Use up to 6 Powerline adapters to network devices in different rooms without running new cabling. LED displays convey device status for easy troubleshooting and advanced AES encryption secures your network. 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.

The 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Plug, model TPL-307E, comes with a three year limited warranty and is currently shipping to TRENDnet's online and retail partners.

The MSRP for the TPL-307E is US $69.00.

ditto on the reliability question. Seems like a good idea but the price is matched by any typical wireless N solution. So I don't know if it's worth it unless it boasts superior reliability compared with a decent wireless n solution. (home network, obviously for business networks the concept of this unit fails).

use 4 netgear gigabit ones for my home network. whilst speeds are quite low, it is much more stable than wireless, its also got a better latency than using wireless

I am not a big techie but I bought two of the earlier model without the plug and it maxes out our 30Mbps internet connection in the kids room upstairs. He says it works much better for online gaming than the netgear wi-fi does. It didn't max out internet right away, but I had to move the cable modem and router to a new location, and after that it went from 15 to 30.

I think it was worth it, but it does depend on the wiring, and even location in your house.

House was built in the 80's. Hope that helps.

Not a bad price for 2, primitive 200Mbps WTF, gig has been out for nearly 2 years already.

Either way this is the same price as 2x $34 AirLive n.mini 1x 300Mbps or meshed dual channel 600Mbps capable.

I've been using a Netgear version (minus the bonus socket) for a few months now. It's a lot more stable than any wireless connection, and the speeds are consistent. I don't have to worry about layers of walls blocking a wireless signal with the Powerline which is the issue I had with wireless.

The 200 Mbps is actually common for Powerlines; I don't think I've seen one that's over that range.

My friends house burned down (well old house, he had just moved out) and they said the cause was electrical because it was wired in the 40's. Not trying to scare you, but maybe you should save up to have an electrician come modernize that a bit.
