Still Stumped for Valentine's Day? Let Actiontec Help You Connect With the One You Love

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2009) - Haven't found that perfect gift for your Valentine yet? Roses are great, and who doesn't love chocolate...but why not be extra original and thoughtful this year and give a Valentine's Day gift that keeps on giving and stays fresh all year. We're talking about online gaming and home theater networking! Sure, online gaming and home theater networking doesn't come in a red heart-shaped box, but what could be more romantic than making that special someone happier by connecting all their digital goodies.

Have a special gamer in your life? Nothing could make a gamer's heart beat faster than live head-to-head competition. With Actiontec's AV Powerline Gaming Kit, these little adapters turn any power outlet into an instant gaming network connection -- allowing your sweetie to get their Xbox 360™, Playstation 3®, or Nintendo Wii™ online and ready for action on the battlefield, racetrack, football field and more!

For the movie buff in your life, help them get their digital video recorders (DVR) online and give them access to video on demand, photo, video and file sharing, and even the ability to catch up on a basketball game or reality show from their PC. The MegaPlug AV Powerline Networking Kit makes it simple and easy, two key ingredients for a happy Valentine's Day. Simply, plug the adapter into a wall and you'll have a simple, instant connection for your home theater network.

Have more gadgets to connect for your Valentine? A home theater to share movies? A game system for him? Want to extend your home network to let her take her PC to her favorite lounging spot? No problem -- just keep adding MegaPlug Powerline adapters to any outlet and connect the new device. It's as easy as plugging in a lamp.
