Netgear today announced availability of its 3DHD Wireless Home Theater Networking Kit (WNHDB3004) with Netgear 3DHD Wireless technology, claiming the first solution capable of reliably delivering jitter-free 1080p high-definition video streams throughout the home with no new wires. The growing popularity of Internet-capable televisions and other home-theater equipment, including Blu-ray players, video game consoles and digital media adapters, often presents consumers with a big hurdle: The home router or gateway which provides an Internet connection is in one room of the house while the home theater system is in another – sometimes separated by several walls or even on different floors. Running Ethernet cables through the house is expensive and time-consuming.

Running ethernet wire is expensive?
At $129 per pop, your network will get OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive in no time with these!
Running wire is inconvenient and a pain, but very worth it. 1Gbps transfer is sweet. Granted I normally only get about 50-60% (60-80MBps) of this theoretical (and it is very likely limited by my HD write speed), but I doubt this wireless would approach even 10MBps.
Take the $500 that (4) of these would cost and pay someone to run the wire for you.
Better to be a smartass than a dumbass.
