Powerline Nano 500 Set impresses with strong performance

Global networking company NETGEAR has received HEXUS’ ‘recommended’ award after its Powerline Nano 500 Set (XAVB5101) was given a rating of four out of five stars. This four out of five rating is for products that are ‘very good in most regards’, offering a compelling mix of features, performance and price.

HEXUS’ ‘recommended’ stamp is only awarded to products that are deemed a safe buy following in-depth testing and analysis.

In the review, HEXUS stated: “Where hard-wiring just isn't an option, Powerline networking makes a lot of sense. Simple to install and seamless in use, these adapters fit well in many situations and deliver second-best performance that's well suited to common tasks such as multimedia streaming and online gaming.

The team at HEXUS concluded: “If you need the extra speed, NETGEAR's high-performance kit is the quickest Powerline solution we've tested and well capable of delivering strong, stable performance to those pesky areas that wireless just won't reach.”

NETGEAR’s wall plug-sized adapters include a one-touch secure set up and pass internet an connection through a home’s electrical wires at speeds of up to 500Mbps. Working straight out of the box, the NETGEAR Powerline Nano 500 Set also comes with three status-indicating LEDs and helps to lower running costs by automatically going into standby mode after ten minutes of inactivity.

Rob Wells, Director, Retail Business Unit, NETGEAR, said: “It is great to see yet another panel of experts recognising the strength of our Powerline products. Our Powerline Nano 500 Set will really improve the networking capabilities of homes that might otherwise struggle to maintain a strong connection.”
