100 bucks for a range extender? You could get another router for that much that has a range extender feature on it(not to mention being a boatload more useful). Seems silly to me.

Literally every single range extender plugs "directly into electrical outlet". How much did Amped Wireless pay for this article to be written and make it seem like a unique product?

I was thinking exactly the same thing; this isn't new at all, in fact there are a bunch of wireless hubs and extenders that plug directly into wall sockets already. Also, as far as features go it's a pretty pathetic one; wall sockets are almost universally the worst place to put wireless devices; as a general rule IMO higher and more central is better, and that's usually where your electrical outlets are NOT.

I hate that these range extender products always create a NEW network name(s).....is there no way to extend the range of a (consumer grade / home) network without adding additional network names? To have it operate seamlessly as one large network, as opposed to 2 separate (but connected) networks (i.e. original 2.4Ghz + extended 2.4Ghz)? And to boost throughput, it would be great if you could connect the extender via Cat6 back to the main router. I've already done this with a 2nd router, but it still creates the 2nd set of network names....I keep waiting for the product which will solve this...but it never seems to arrive.

Then you'd have the issue where you get devices constantly jumping back and forth on networks. Having to handshake each time you say walk into the kitchen. Atleast, that was my issue.
