The Comtrend PG-9172 G.hn Powerline Adapter has a crazy name

Internet Routers
Hi guys, **** Ngo here and this is the Comtrend PG-9172 G.hn Powerline Adapter. And don't let that crazy name scare you. It's actually quite a sexy product. For one, it is the fastest power adapter on the market, with. [MUSIC] Stain real world speed of more than 330 megabits per second in my testing. That's some four times the speed of a regular ethernet connection and close to the speed of a gigabit connection. And secondly, it's very easy to use. Now take a look here. it look just like a three-prong power adaptor you can plug into a wall. Socket very easily, but underneath here there's a gigabit network port. Now to make the first powerline connection, you need two units. The first one right here next to an existing network such as a router and the second unit, and I do have it right here [MUSIC] You use this to connect to a ethernet ready device, such as a computer, a printer, or even a wi-fi access point, at the far corner of the house. After that, you plug both of these into the wall socket, and you are done. The electrical wiring, which unit. [INAUDIBLE] Unit will now work as a network cable connecting the two. Basically, these two will save you from having to run the actual network cable from one room to another and their fast speed means you don't have to compromise performance either. Now, the adapter has these indicator lights right here to. [INAUDIBLE] And over here there's actually a config button that enables a secure feature. This feature is very important because you want to keep your network safe in case you live in a multiple unit building such as a condo. But if you live in a single family residence. That's [UNKNOWN] use that feature. Okay, so it's fast and it's easy to use. Now the question is, how much does it cost? Well, these new adapters here have a suggested price of $70.00 for one unit, or $130.00 if you buy two at the same time. A year ago that's quite a good price, but now it's a big expensive. So, maybe you should wait for the shelf price to go down before getting your own. In the meantime to find out more, check out my full review at cnet.com. And by the way, if you're wondering, what's so sexy about this one? Well, there's not, until I start talking about it. That's true isn't it. And that's because I'm the only one that has the first look at the very easy to use and very fast polar adapter from comtrend.
