The only issue I have with them is their lifespan but I suppose if you leave them "always on", then 3 or four years out of an adaptor isn't bad. Obviously the 200Mbps ones are more expensive but I get plenty enough speed out of the 84's to make it not worth my while upgrading :)

No good having a new standard if the house industry wont comply...
Mind, if they had complied new build would have Cat5 throughout.
