Arris's SBX-1000P doesn't put a best foot forward for powerline technology.

How's the connection stability on these things?

From first hand experience with another vendors AV1200 solution - connection dropouts are an ongoing problem with some vendors, even those using QCA solutions - recent firmware updates have helped, but they still have issues...

Does, and specifically the Arris solution perform better in this regards?

Interesting to see how their wireless extender over that's what I'd like to see expand as a home networking package. The ease of increasing the wireless coverage in larger homes, using a "simple/pre-packaged all in one solution" for home users. The ability of an end residential user purchasing 1x single product...that is easy to setup for them, without having to mix-match various products, convert wireless routers to APs, mix in moca or other 3rd party bridges...just seems like a market demand waiting for product to fill it.
