I've got a Comtrend power line kit with two ethernet plugs (which include pass-through) and an 5-port Edimax switch for a total of £60 (£50 + £10). So, what does the extra £40 buy you in terms of functionality and usability, if you go for the Netgear kit?
Having checked the Netgear site (and re-read the review), I can see that the ethernet switch acts as an adaptor, with one adaptor plugged into your modem/router and the other being your switch.I can now see the benefit of this approach, saving one plug socket, and with the switch being more tightly integrated with the adaptor. Not sure if I would pay extra for it, but I'm sure the price will come down as more of these kits are released.
