Avoid, it's slooooow
I work in IT and had been hesitant to try this technology until it had matured. Thinking this generation of product might be worth a try I bought a kit based on the reviews. The web interface for setup is simplistic and confusing at the same time. Latency was < 10ms. Signal seemed dependable in the few minutes I did test these. Google iperf bandwidth test, this is what I used to test throughput. I get 77Mbps on my Linksys WRT54G from wired port to wired port, and 19Mbps over 54g wireless. Between PLE200's on the same outlet I was getting an avg of 12Mbps. From the next room I was getting 10Mbps. I had hoped to get better or more consistent throughput than 802.11g so that I could stream my 7Mbps BeyondTV video recordings to my Govideo D2740. No such luck. - 1 star for poor documentation and interface - 2 stars for poor bandwidth. I give 2 stars because it seemed stable (but I didn't use it for long) and that it might be good for web browsing in areas where you can't get wireless to. These are already boxed up and headed back where it looks like I'll be charged a 15% restocking fee. :( Avoid these unless you're desperate!
