TRENDnet today announced the 500 Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter, model TPL-406E, and the 500 Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter Kit, model TPL-406E2K (which comes with two TPL-406E adapters), at the CES 2012.
The smallest form factor to date, these 500Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapters connect media center devices and computers to the Internet using existing electrical lines. Different TRENDnet adapters automatically connect 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. Embedded power saving technology lowers power consumption by up to 70% in standby mode-resulting in measurable power savings, given that the adapters are always plugged in.
The TPL-406E will cost US$59.99 while the TPL-406E2K, US$99.99.
Both come with a three year limited warranty and will be available from April onwards.
