Final Thoughts

 

So, what is our verdict on the NETGEAR Universal Wireless Adapter? It is a solid product. Now, I know what you are thinking. You are looking at the performance numbers and the 10/100 Ethernet port. Those are all valid points IF you are connecting this to a PC. But this is for a TV, a Game Console, and/or a Blu-ray player (for BD Live).

 

All of these devices (with the exception of the game console) are not bandwidth hogs. They are going to take up a very minimal amount of your WiFi network. Even the gaming console is not going to max things out. After all, the average connection in the US is around 6MBps with some people maxing out at 40Mbps. That is still less than half of what you can get through that 10/100 port.

 

So in the end, the performance is more than sufficient to handle even the needs of online console gaming. Plus, for only $59.99 at NewEgg.com , it is a pretty good deal.
