Netgear Powerline 1200, 1 Port PLP1200 Review
Netgear Powerline 1200, 1 Port PLP1200 features a Gigabit Ethernet port along with WPS security button at the top, while on the front, it has several activity LEDs placed in a row. This makes the PLP 1200 quite simple and refreshing. Having multiple Ethernet ports would be a great addition, but the two adapters provided compensate possibly for this absence. Each of these adapters protrudes upwards as opposed to downwards, making them somewhat archaic as it would fit well in a 1930s flat with skirting boards which are excessively-thick. Again, the adapters each draw roughly 2W from mains prior to plugging any other gadgets into pass-through socket. This implies the PLP 1200 should not inflate your electricity bill.
Netgear is unlike other manufacturers and does not add pass-through power outlets typically to its networking-adapters powerline. Adopting such an approach to design would be more convenient compared to non-pass-through adapters. This is because one need not sacrifice a plug socket for adding wired networking to any room. However, the 1 Port PLP1200 breaks this trend.
The box which carries Netgear Powerline 1200 also includes two Ethernet cables, which is of great advantage to the user. Pairing becomes a simple act of turning each plug on and pressing security button, once you have plugged in one adapter into wireless router and mains. This includes plugging in the second one next to the gadget you are connecting to your network. It takes below one minute and does not require interfering with browser or software-based interfaces.
There is a Pick a Plug LED located at the top changes its colour, indicating your link rate. Green suggests 80Mbps or greater and is best, with amber indicating a rate that falls in-between 50Mbit/s and 80Mbit/s. Red implies your connection is below 50Mbit/s. As well, the LED flashes if adapters have been placed too distant from each other. Users of Netgear Powerline 1200 powerline should experience great flexibility, going by the expected 500m2 of connectivity it covers for a given area.
PLP 1200 is part of the fastest Powerline adapters on offer, having a rated 1,200Mbit/s speed. Speeds in the real world depend upon the quality of electrical wiring utilized, along with distance in-between adapters. However, Netgear adapters perform in remarkable manner, with the PLP1200 producing ultra-fast speeds that would challenge 802.11n any wireless device.
Netgear Powerline 1200, 1 Port PLP1200 does not come with notable extras such as multiple Ethernet ports or built-in Wi-Fi. However, it is priced quite reasonably for any Powerline starter set. Although the dLAN powerline 1200 from Devolo has a second 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Ethernet port, it is twice costlier in comparison. The PLP1200 is a great choice for anyone seeking to do high-speed connectivity into an individual’s network using a single device, without taking up all plug sockets. Netgear Powerline 1200, 1 Port PLP1200 measures 120x58x42mm, comes with 2 power sockets and has a push-button security features.
