I was hesitant to purchase this, but figured I would try it out and return it if it failed to meet my needs. I am streaming media from a NAS stored in my front office, to my HTPC stored in my living room. Wireless was lagging and movies would buffer every 10 minutes or so, YouTube videos were worthless, and large file transfers would need to be started before bedtime since they took so long. I own a house 1 year old house that is nearly 3000 sq ft and is two stories, so running cat5 through the walls and ceiling were not an option. I plugged the first adapter to the wall near my router in the office, and the second adapter into the wall on the complete opposite side of the house in my living room. I immediately got blue lights, did a test transfer of a 1.8 GB file which took less than 4 minutes to complete. Movies stream without a hitch, and internet streaming (Netflix, Youtube, etc) is flawless and crystal clear. I guess I lucked out, but this was the perfect solution to my problem.

Product Overview

Create an ultrafast HD entertainment network through your home’s electrical wiring*

Imagine reliably sending HD movies from the Internet directly to your home theater system through just the wires already in your home. No need for special wiring. With Belkin's Gigabit Powerline HD starter kit, it is that simple. Connect one Adapter to an existing home router and then simply plug it into the wall outlet. Then plug a second Adapter into an available wall outlet and connect the other end to computers, gaming consoles or home theater system.
