Agree, that was a big problem with the older lower speed (sub 500Mbps) adaptors, not so much with the newer higher speed ones - I have a portable radio plugged into the same outlet as one adaptor and only occasionally get noise - like when I let the power lead get too near to the antenna...

The only reason for the adaptors was that I needed something fast (son's Xbox Christmas present a few years back) and being a post-2000 house, installing new outlets and cables is a real hassle...
