I bought this because I was having problems streaming HD over wireless N during action scenes or other "busy" screen events. The picture will jitter and skip because there is not enough bandwidth. Setup was easy but I am still having the same bandwidth problems. I ran a Cat5 across the floor to test on a straight cable connection and it did not jitter or skip.

-Anonymous quote

As an owner of the previous older larger PLA4205 model the newer smaller version PLA4201 is just a reliable. (works together without issue with the older model) It's worth the investment if you stream movies/music/data from home networks; stream video from Netflix, Amazon or play video games etc from the web. Currently have six such devices and and tickled pink with the speed and reliably the PLA4201
