Netcomm Turbo HomePlug NP285 Ethernet over power line adapters

Price: $121.77

If wireless networking is getting you down, try a pair of Ethernet over power line adapters. Netcomm's Turbo HomePlug NP285 kit is available for $121.77 from EYO and it's worth considering — especially if you have a media streamer or PC that isn't performing too well on a wireless network. The NP285 gives a theoretical throughput of 85 megabits per second, though both adapters need to be on the same physical circuit in order to communicate. We've reviewed the faster Netcomm NP200AV kit before, and liked its ease of use. They're also great if you want to use wired networking between two rooms and don't want to trip over cables lying in the hallway.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
