Has anyone tried a device such as this Netgear to stream HD (native Blu-Ray rips) videos over a network?

I live in an apartment and can't wire the place up, and 802.11n is insufficient.

Never tried it. I have tried the home electric wire kits, and they are pretty touchy. The biggest thing with the electric kits is if your electric wires are broken up by the breaker box (which they are). Being in an apartment maybe you would run into some type of problem with the cable company breaking up things to different units, but I would think your same apartement should all be together (so you get what you order). I would think it would probably work, but I have no idea what type of throughput you would see in real life.

Why was 802.11n insufficeint? That should have given you everything you needed in an apartment. Unless you where trying to use 802.11n in the 2.4Ghz range (with 40Mhz wide channels) instead of the 5Ghz range.

It almost works, but stutters every few minutes for more than few seconds.

I have to use it because I have Verizon Fios, and I must say, I am impressed. MOCA is faster than Fast Ethernet, running at usually 228Mb/s. I use it to get internet access down in my basement where the ONT is installed for Fios because there is no Ethernet, just coax. I would recommended if it is absolutely impossible to route Ethernet anywhere.

I just read today that Comcast's Anyroom DVR uses MoCA for multizone installations.
