      Whats the best faceplate around at the mo?

      As I've decided to move the router next to the master socket, to help with wireless etc, as it was on the 2nd floor at the very top of the house in a far corner, now on ground floor in the centre of property - I am going to replace the master with a filtered faceplate, so I can get rid of the filters on the Sky boxes, phone, alarm and fax machine!

      So whats the best performing faceplate, that people have actually used???

      Money not an issue (within reason) just want the best available....

      Have you had a look here-
      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/cabli...r-reviews.html

      I personally use the ADSLNation one and have had no problems.

      Yep, read that thread, but one of them appeared to be a bit cheap looking on the inside, not sure which one it was though...

      Both the ADSLNation and the Tamar one are spot on performance wise. Although most plastic things look cheap on the other side anyway. Runitdirect's products have not been reviewed, although I am sure they are just as good. (If you want to send one to be checked feel free)

      There's little or no difference in reality.

      The Pressac is the same as the BT filter faceplate, same as clarity, same as all of them really, except the ADSL Nation xte-2005, which is differant. Performance wise, I think they are all much of a muchness, some say you can get a couple of hundread kb more out of the ADSL Nation, but who knows.
