Summary: Plug and play ease, great range, good control interface. However, if you want to use this with anything bigger than a 1TB USB drive attached as network storage, it will not play .AVI files. So, you cannot stream AVI movies from the attached HD to your laptop or TV. .MPEG files work fine. After 3 hours on a chat with the NETGEAR SPT (which is very responsive BTW), they had no solution.
