Mbps Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter
turns any AC electrical outlet into an
HD-streaming, high-speed ethernet broadband connection, suitable for real-time
high-quality video, gaming and VoIP or connecting a personal computer, digital
video recorder, game console or other ethernet device to their home network:
Netgear's Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter Kit (HDXB101) is comprised of two Powerline HD Ethernet Adapters (HDX101), an Ethernet cable, and set-up CD. By simply connecting one of the Powerline HD Ethernet Adapters to a router and the other to any Ethernet-ready device (e.g. PC, game console, print server, digital video recorder, or the upcoming Netgear Digital Entertainer), consumers have up to 200 Mbps connectivity without a complicated set-up. The Netgear Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter can also make large file transfers to networked storage devices like the Netgear Storage Central (SC101) up to 12 times faster than previous Powerline networking products. Furthermore, the HDX101 easily co-exists with other Powerline technologies, so that consumers could use their existing, slower units for basic applications, and the HDX101 as an exclusive network loop for high-definition video and gaming.
Netgear's Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter is available with a one-year warranty and 24/7 technical support. The Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter Kit (HDXB101) containing two devices for US$249.99. For consumers needing to connect additional devices to the network, a single adapter (HDX101) is sold separately at an MSRP of US$129.99.
