The Extollo LANSocket 1500 power-line kit is not the selfish type

Computer Accessories
Hey, guys. **** Ngo here, and this is the LANSocket 1500 Powerline Kit from Extollo. Now, this one is my favorite, so pay attention. I like it for four reasons. Number one is the design. Now, this one here has the regular snap in three-prong design. You can plug into the wall directly quite conveniently. But take a look at this pass-through socket. That's right, you can plug something on top of it. And this means you can use this adapter here at the place of your house where there's only one outlet. Now, you plug into socket and And they'll plug a power strip on this one here, and they're gonna add more device to the same socket. Remember, power [UNKNOWN] adapter needs to be plugged directly into the wall to work well. The second is performance. In my testing The two of them here have sustained real-world speed of some 405 Mbps. That's half of a true gigabit connection. Now the speed is very important, because the idea of power lies that you don't have to run the actual network cable. Instead you plug one of these here into the existing network. Such as your router. And a second one to a far device such as, computer, a printer or a WiFi access point. They've been told that power wiring in between them into a network table and extend your network further that way. Obviously, running the actual network cable is always the fastest. But that's not convenient, and sometime not even possible. But with this kit, it's convenient and it's also fast. And finally, the price. Each is $90 for a kit of two units. These lamp socket 1500 here is a lot cheaper than other competing kit. I don't know if that adapter is quite typical. Over here it has this sync button. Pressing on this, we create a private network which we have two of them, and that is useful only if you live in a multi-home building, such as a condo. That prevent others from accessing your network by using their own adaptor. Over here it has a gigabit network port and on top it has a few indicator light to show the status. The light in the middle here will change color to show the strength of the powerlax signal, which is very handy if you want to find out what socket is the best to plug it in. And for more of this, want to check out my full review at cnet.com. Basically if you were to look for a fast way to extend your wire network without worrying about tripping on the cables, this is the kit to have. Oh, by the way, the fourth reason why I like it is because well, I just like plugging things to each other. Really, who don't? I can do this all day and that's because I'm **** Ngo and this has been the first look at the lamp socket 1500 powerline adapter kit, from Extollo.
