If you have been reading this spot for long, you know we consistently praise the D-Link PowerLine HD Adapters, which allow you to create fast and easy wired network solutions in your home by plugging these devices into two or more outlets.
Today, the PowerLine Network Starter Kit won the Computer Shopper Editors' Choice Award and the PC World Best Buy Award.
In product reviews from both publications, the unit received top editorial recognition for features such as fast transmission speeds, easy installation, simplified management, push-button security and affordability.
Computer Shopper said: "Ease of use and speedy performance are two good reasons to choose the D-Link PowerLine HD Network Starter Kit DHP-303 if you're thinking of using your existing electrical wiring to provide Ethernet connectivity throughout your home. In our tests, installation was a breeze. We plugged one adapter into a wall socket close to our router and connected it with one of the included Ethernet cables, then plugged the second adapter into a wall socket in a room located on the other side of the house. Next, we connected our Lenovo ThinkPad notebook to the second adapter. Within seconds, the notebook was assigned an IP address from the router, and we were up and running.
The unit was also named "Top Pick" in the PC World Best Buy Awards. Editor Becky Waring noted: "its throughput was more than 30 percent higher than the competition's, and it carries a lower price tag."
This is one piece of technology that just works.
