Best Powerline Adapter for Large Houses
- Superior powerline range
- Three Ethernet-out ports
- Pass-through socket on both adapters
The Devolo DLAN 650triple+ is the ideal solution for those who simply must have the best range out of their Powerline setup. Its unique range+ technology uses not only the live and neutral pins that normal Powerline adapters do, but also utilises the ground pin to find the best connection.
This performance prowess came across in our testing too with it delivering the best file transfer score on test: 14.6MB/s. Devolo also claims its range+ technology will make even more of a difference over longer distances – if you live in a three-story home or office right at the bottom of the garden, this is the kit for you.
As well as speed this set includes three Ethernet sockets on one of its adapters, for convenient connection of multiple devices. Both adapters are also pass-through, so you shouldn’t need to sacrifice any plug sockets to use them. There’s no wireless included here, though, so you’ll have to plug in a separate router to connect your phones and tablets.
There are a couple of other downsides, too. The first is that the adapters are seriously large, with the largest a considerable 232 x 189 x 80mm. This will make installation in tight spaces rather difficult.
It’s also quite a pricey kit too, coming in at around £110. But, if performance is key then this kit is definitely the one to look at, especially if you have a large home or office.
