TRENDnet First to Offer a Full 450Mbps Wireless Product Family

TORRANCE, Calif.-September 2, 2011-TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, demonstrates today from IFA Berlin, a full line of 450Mbps Wireless solutions.

Other brands may currently offer 450Mbps wireless routers, however users need a 450Mbps client adapter in order to realize the promised 450Mbps throughput speeds. Most computers with integrated wireless are rated at 150Mbps. When connecting to a 450Mbps router, the respective computer's connection speed will be bottlenecked at a slow 150Mbps. TRENDnet is currently the only brand to offer a selection of 450Mbps routers and adapters needed to build a fully integrated high performance 450Mbps network.

450Mbps Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter Model TEW-684UB

This is the first adapter which upgrades laptop or desktop connectivity to never before seen 450Mbps wireless speeds.

TRENDnet® Demonstrates First 500Mbps Powerline Adapter with Four Integrated Gigabit Ports

TORRANCE, Calif. -September 2, 2011- TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, demonstrates today from IFA Berlin the first 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter, model TPL-405E, which features four Gigabit ports to connect all media center devices to a high speed 500Mbps Powerline network.

New media center devices such as Internet televisions, NVRs, Receivers, and game consoles are now network ready-meaning that each device is capable of streaming large HD files directly from the Internet. TRENDnet's ground breaking 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter connects up to four media center devices to the Internet at the same time using existing electrical lines.

Network one adapter to a router and plug another adapter into any outlet on the same electrical system for instant high speed network access. TRENDnet adapters connect automatically to each other over a secure encrypted signal with no CD installation required. For additional security, press the Sync button to change existing encryption keys.

LED displays convey device status for easy power management and troubleshooting. Embedded power saving technology lowers power consumption by up to 70% in standby mode-resulting in measurable power savings, given that the device is always on.

"Network ready Internet televisions now make up to 50% of total television sales in select markets," stated Sonny Su, Director of Technology for TRENDnet. "The need to connect multiple media center devices to the Internet is already here and we are excited to be able to bring compelling Powerline solutions to market."

The 4-Port 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter, model TPL-405E, comes with a three year limited warranty and will be available from TRENDnet's online and retail partners this coming December.

The MSRP for the TPL-405E is US $109.99

Has anyone seen any good reviews on these products or does HH plan on reviewing these types of devices? I am really curious to see how well this newer generation of power line adapters works with the mixed electrical that is often found in older homes. I also am wondering if they will create interference on the electrical wires causing the electronic devices to behave in any strange manners. I know from experience if the electricity is not clean often times you get distortion on something like a TV. I know in my house sometimes if I fire up a power tool on the same circuit as my TV it can create distortion.
