My powerline adapters are 85mbit and only do around 20. SD content 
streams fine, but going to 720p stutters pretty badly. I haven't even 
bothered trying 1080p content. I'm not sure what real life speeds are 
likely to be using 200mbit adapters but I'm willing to bet it's 
substantially below the rated speed. Has anyone got any experience using 
200mbit powerline adapters?
