Company’s Powerline technology praised for flawless performance

Global networking company NETGEAR has received HardwareHeaven’s ‘recommended’ award for its Powerline 500 Nano (XAVB5101) and Powerline 200 Mini Set (XAVB1301).

In the review, HardwareHeaven stated: “The NETGEAR Powerline Nano 500 Set and Powerline 200 MiniSet are great for those who want fast easy access around the home or in rented accommodation where it is not possible to install dedicated LAN cables and where the wireless reception is poor.”

The team at HardwareHeaven concluded: “Powerline technology certainly deserves its place in a modern network infrastructure; we found it to perform flawlessly while maintaining speeds equal or better than a 10/100 network. Internet access is flawless across all connected devices.”
