A bit off topic, but often we would see  ~120MB/s transfer rates on a 1G NIC 
(on hardware we supply). In most cases, a result <105MB/s would constitute a 
fail and be investigated.
Not all NICs and switches are created equal though.
The major problem we would have with multicast, is that the consumer often 
goes for cheap stuff that will do what they need. I have to admit that the 
switch I have at home, is of a brand that I have a lot of problems with, but 
the switch was cheap, and gave me the bandwidth I needed at the time.
