I'm very happy with mine, have had it for several months now and would recommend it. The only issue I had was one incident when I was re-cabling my router/switch, had to do a hard power cycle on the device to have it seen again by the 2 HTPCs I have. Other than that, no issues.
Set up can be a little flaky, but that's more 7MC than the specific product, IMO. I did my install, including going to Micro Center for the HDHRP and a stop on the way home to Verizon to pick up a CC all in a couple of hours. And that included the online activation of the CC itself, I was very surprised how easily it all went.
The Ceton seems worth consideration as well though I have no experience with it. I just liked the idea of having it as a network device, seems more flexible to me. On occasion I'll fire up my laptop and am able to stream HD channels via Media Player. A little jerky over my older wireless G setup, but it works.
