no because the zyxel one is 2 units and the netgear one is just 1 unit.

Keep in mind that the outlets used are important that adapters on the same circuit will perform much better than adapters on different circuits, and sometimes testing a number of outlets will result in a big performance increase.

Wrong. The Netgear unit is a starter kit. Almost no one sells individual powerline adapters.

Yes, 600 Mbps of total theoretical throughput on the circuit with 1 Gbps LAN adapters. Even under ideal conditions, no powerline network reaches the advertise speeds.

Even the fastest newer kits do not break 500 Mbps. On average, you'd be lucky to get 100-200 Mbps on the same circuit.

LOL. Didn't you check before responding?
I actually have the Netgear one (plus 2 other models). They all come in pairs.
Whenever it is faster than 100Mbps fast ethernet, they call it gigabit.
