These work exceptionally well and deliver close to the gigabit performance promised. For the most part it's as close to ethernet as one can get without actually running ethernet cabling. Speeds are consistently close to gigabit and packets are delivered reliably - even when across my home.
There is some additional latency introduced, about 3ms overall, that might be an issue for gamers looking for the absolute lowest ping times. But most users won't notice any difference in performance.
All in these work as advertised and I highly recommend them over powerline adapters and other ethernet alternative devices.
