These two devices are fine for standard networking and file sharing – if you’re looking to stream media, then make sure you go for the Powerline AV equivalents:

The 4 Port Network adaptor in particular looks great, as it negates the need for an ethernet hub – useful if you need to attach a number of devices to the network in close proximity.

Best of all, it really looks like the price of these units has started to come down – still more expensive than running cable though!
