My System Specs

Thanks for the review, AkG!

How is latency with those units? While sustained bandwidth is great, latency is of concern if you want to remote desktop or play twitch shooters over the connection. That's one thing I noticed between powerline and WiFi - my 307E2 (older tech but the price was right) powerline has a lot more consistent pings than my combo of Linksys DIR-610N + WUSB600N even at 5 GHz.
That said, my house is a lot friendlier to powerline than WiFi since the garage and kitchen are in the direct line between the router and my brother's room...


Code:
 * PC
------------------------
garage   /   kitchen
------------------------
                   * router
