Absolutely a good price, I'm getting one of this.
If you don't need it now, I'll wait til the new version comes out. This might drop in price.

everything with powerline is ymmv because it can vary a lot from house wiring to house wiring. i tell people usually to find a friend with a powerline kit to borrow to try first as a test to see what kind of results you can expect.

i know a few mentioned wireless doesn't work well but that's ymmv too. we use a laptop on the other end of the house where we didn't have an xbox and it streams fine over wireless from the prime.

It is actually easier than that. If you look at the breaker box, if the breakers for the outlets that you are planning on using for powerline are on the same side of the box (they usually run in 2 rows), then it will most likely work. If they are on opposite sides, then you are YMMV.

powerline should "work" as long as your wiring isn't completely fubar.

how WELL it works is another story. the rates can vary a lot even with the same adapters. even in the same house. even in the same room. hence the "ymmv" part. Big Grin

also it depends on what the users wants to do. i know someone who bought a 200mbit kit. i got involved after the purchase. he plugged one in at one end of the house then attached a router to the other end and expected all 6 pc's - 4 wired and two wireless off that router - to be able to stream stuff just dandy.

since we're talking about something inherently sensitive to throughput it may not work for everyone depending on what they're looking to get out of it.

it's almost like buying a new car but not getting the intended fuel efficiency. sure the car works but .. you're not getting the mileage you wanted.

if only there were a term for that! Big Grin

FYI that setup would have worked fine provided a network switch was located on the other end of the power line setup facing the clients.

In this way all packets routed between local machines would never go over the powerline (HDHR to xbox client, or file playback from a NAS), and only requests out to the web and back would hit the 200mbit link between the switch and the router (plenty for web/video streams).




TLDR on the guys having issues deciding to go with powerline or MOCA or whatever other technology.
You may not feel its 'worth' putting the time in to run cat5e/cat6 BUT IT IS.
Technology is only advancing further and further requiring more and more bandwidth, even on local networks.
Going wired with your home network is one of the best and cheapest investments you can make to boost your internal infrastructure to support cool things like this!

DO IT
