Catchy name... It is interesting that they specifically say that this router is IPv6 ready most routers already support IPv6 addresses on the WAN port while the LAN ports use the IPv4 standards still. The prices sound reasonable for higher end consumer level equipment.
I've seen much better hardware for the price. At that price I expect full dual band 300mb/s (600mb/s) and gigabit ethernet, and a USB port. All the other features come standard on almost any modern router. Personally, I loath powerline networking with a passion. it does nasty thing with your house's power circuits, which interferes with wi-fi, disrupts your computer I/O operations, wreaks havoc on the power supply, and causes EMF 100 times more potent than the wi-fi that parents are currently trying to get banned from school. besides which it is expensive considering that wi-fi can connect as many computers as you want at a quarter of the price without the side-effects. rather than the 20$ a computer and the 120$ router

This is true I have also seen higher end networking equipment for around the same price. There pricing structure just seems reasonable to me.
I would totally agree with you about anything that runs over your power line unless your house wiring is perfect it does not work properly. Plus it adds some interference on your powerline which could effect your other electronic devices.
