I've had a network based on these (200Mbps) adaptors for about a year and
while I don't have any numbers it seems to work fine for my (and presumably
your) purposes. I can stream 1080p from my fileserver to either my normal PC
and and my Acer Revo and that's all I was looking for. I don't think I've
ever tried streaming 1080p to both frontends simultaneously but I know
720p + SD works fine.

If you wany any hard numbers feel free to request any commands/tests to
run and I may be able to do it this weekend.

Disclaimer, when I say 1080p I have never tried a raw blue ray rip, only
more compressed files.
