I personally bought one of these on a Deal Zone deal the week of BF, and it works amazing. I needed to extend wifi to the bedrooms in the back of my 1 story house and also provide Ethernet drops to a room for XB1 reliable and fast speed. This device is amazing offering both solutions.

Mine works great, too, and is nicely configurable.

I'm getting over 800Mbps on the link to the Wi-Fi unit which is easily 70' away.

Thank you OP! I just set up a deal alert last week for this. It's a shame they don't sell the just the access point by itself. At least I'll have an extra adapter should I need it in the future.

Yes. I have a powerline adapter in my office (at my WIFI/router point) that connects to an outlet in my basement man cave. The basement outlets are on a subpanel of the main breaker box and it works. Speeds are knocked down quite a bit (100Mbps versus the 170 to 250 I'm getting at closer outlets), but...

To be clear, by different circuit breaker -- there would have to be a connection of sorts somewhere.

Dumb question -- if I have two AV1200 powerline adapters and two 2000Mpbs powerline adapters, would the 2000s talk to each other at a higher speed? Or would all get knocked down to the lower speed (1200)?

This one doesn't have WiFi, just an powerline adapter. In case you didn't notice...

Yes, 1200/2000 is arbitrary number. The speed varies greatly depending on your ac wiring. Real life speed is around 400 mbit max which is plenty for streaming HD

I already have some 1200s. So my question was more would 2000 units be a waste compared to additional 1200 units? Also, I'm looking to push 20+ GB MKV files across these (including some 4K ones upwards of 60GB), so I'm going to need faster than the "HD streaming" speeds I get with my 1200 units (anywhere from 100 to 250 Mbps).

I haven't personally tested a mixed powerline adapter network, but according to TP-Link's "Most frequent questions about TP-Link Powerline adapters [tp-link.com]":

Quote :
Q: Are TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200 powerline adapters compatible with each other? Are TP-LINK PLC adapters compatible with adapters of other Brands?

A: TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600 powerline adapters adopte HomePlug AV Standard, so they are compatible with each other,AV1200 adopt HomePlug AV2,that is also backward compatible with HomePlug AV standard,which means TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200 are all compatible with each other.However, the powerline rate will drop to lowest one's rate when use different AV adapters together.
For adapters of other brands,if they adopt the same standard,they should also be compatible with TP-LINK adapters.However,different brands' products will have different ways to pair and configure,it might be much easier to use adapters from the same brand.
