I just use the adapters for directv. I got them for about $18 for a pair of them. Probably get them cheaper than that. They work fine and are plenty fast for what we use them for.

What is the max speed they can achieve? I think I'm still on older 2.0 platform and tops out around 600 mbps on a 1gbps service

The whole intent of MoCA is to enable networking over the coax cable lines, give you a low latency networking solution without the extra install beyond existing coax lines. If you already have Ethernet wiring, or are considering it, then you don't need MoCA.

MoCA itself was an upgraded solution from networking over phonelines (HPNA) which maxed out at 10 mbps and the phone cables were not insulated and were subject to interference (from high energy usage, or phone calls). Coax cable is insulated.

HPNA has also evolved into a coaxial cable product that DirecTV utilizes. HPNA and MoCA operate on different frequencies. If you just use the wiring in your house for networking, get whatever you want. But if you using the wiring for DirecTV you have to get HPNA, whereas if you have FiOS or Cable TV, you have to get MoCA. HPNA will interfere with cable TV; MoCA will interfere with DirecTV.

MoCA 1.0 speed is 100 Mbps
MoCA 1.1 is 175, although at the time the RJ45 port was still 10/100, so it is still technically 100.
MoCA 2.0 is 500 Mbps
MoCA 2.0 bonded is 1 Gbps
MoCA 2.5 is 2.5 Gbps, but again, without the proper ports, hubs, wiring, you are going to max out at whatever the lowest speed is.

Everything is backwards compatible, but the connection will utilize the lowest speed.

The price is really tempting... I don't need it right now since I wired my entire house for Ethernet... however, I move in like a year and I have no idea if I am going to need it.

Before I moved to current house, my last one needed one of these to bridge the first and 2nd floors...I used MoCA bonded 2.0 at the time.

Really don't know... spend the $60-90 now for 2-3 adapters... in the chance I'll need it in the future, but might end up not needing it..
Or pass on this and spend $120-180 in the future, if I don't buy now and end up needing it.

I don't recommend you buy. These adapters are always falling in price. Once MoCA 2.5 becomes more ubiquitous, all the bonded 2.0 adapters will be cheap. You won't need more then 1 Gbps (side note: unless the MoCA 2.5 adapter has a 10 Gbps port and your computers have 10 Gbps, you are only going to get 1 Gbps).

The thing is $30 per adapter is super cheap. I ended up selling my two MoCA 2.0 adapters for about $90 when I moved.

If you are considering ethernet, there is no purpose to getting a MoCA network......unless you are looking to have two separate networks for example...i.e. one internet-connected, one internal internet-disconnected (interesting idea to say the least). If your ethernet is Cat 5, or Cat 5e, perhaps MoCA 2.5 has some utility. If you have Cat 6 or 7, no purpose in my opinion.

$30 is super cheap, but they will eventually come down in price. Hell, you really only need bonded 2.0 if that ends up being the super cheap option down the road, the way MoCA 1.1 became the super cheap option.
