  • Conclusion: I'm sure many people will find this product interesting. It makes it so easy to add a connection between different rooms and floors in the building and in some cases even outside (a garage, workshop etc.). Even if you have an existing ethernet cable drawn between the rooms, you might still want to give the WD Livewire a chance as it offer four ethernet ports for your devices on both ends.
  • Pros: Silent, Four ports per adapter, Low power consumption, Easy to install, Power switch
  • Cons: Speed, Connectors on the sides, Price (?)

Western Digital WD Livewire

  • Excerpt: Western Digital WD Livewire doesn't look like other network powerline adaptors such as the Devolo dLAN 500 AVplus . For a start, it doesn't plug directly into a wall power socket. Instead, it's a small box that connects to the power socket via a cable. It's not as elegant a solution as other powerline adaptors, especially ones that have integrated follow-through sockets - which means you don't have to sacrifice a socket when installing them.

LiveWire review

  • Excerpt: The first thing you’ll notice is that the two adaptors in the kit don’t simply look like fat electrical plugs, as all their rivals do. Instead, each adaptor is housed in a little rectangular black box – a bit like a small hard disk – and comes with a separate extension cable for plugging it into the mains.
  • Pros: Can connect eight devices to the internet, movable design, good price
  • Cons: Speed limited to 200Mbps, no mains passthrough

Western Digital Livewire review

  • Excerpt: Powerline networking is a convenient way of bridging the network ‘gaps’ in your house without recourse to hard-to-hide CAT-5 cable or undependable Wi-Fi. The Livewire packs two powerline adapters; plug one into the mains sockets at the network gear end, the other in the remote location for which access is required; connect the Ethernet cables, press the ‘sync’ button on one of the Livewires, and it will seek out and then pair itself to the other. Easy!

Nettverk i stikkontakten

  • Summary: Det kan være veldig praktisk å ha et trådløst hjemmenettverk. Men hvis ikke spillkonsollen eller tv-en i stua har trådløs forbindelse, er det vanligvis ikke annet å gjøre enn å trekke nettverkskabler gjennom hele huset. Du kan også bruke strømkablene som allerede ligger i veggene til å utvide rekkevidden til det vanlige nettverket ditt.
  • Pros: Enkelt oppsett, Sikkerhet i toppsjiktet, God nettverkshastighet
  • Cons: Korte strømkabler, Ikke til skjøteledning

  • Conclusion: Western Digital WD Livewire aslında elektrik hatları üzerinden ağ kurmayı sağlayanbir home plug ürünü ancak biraz daha farklı bir tasarıma sahip ve işlevselliği daha üstün. Kurulumu hiçbir bilgi sahibi olmayan kişiler tarafından bile sadece birkaç dakika içerisinde yapılabilen WD Livewire, kutusundan ikili set halinde geliyor. Evinizin içinde iki oda arasında kablosuz aktarımla uğraşmak yerine tercih edebileceğiniz bir yöntem.

  • Excerpt: Este es un dispositivo PLC multipuerto que nos será de gran ayuda a la hora de transferir contenidos en alta definición gracias a la alta velocidad
  • Pros: Incluye cuatro puertos de conexión que nos permiten enlazar todo tipo de dispositivos
  • Cons: La velocidad máxima asciende a 200 Mbps, más que suficiente para la emisión de contenidos en alta definición, aunque su rendimiento es muy inferior al de un enlace Gigabit Ethernet si queremos transferir grandes caudales de datos entre ambos extremos
