Thinking of Powerline for networking

I am now renting a room, and the house only has Internet downstairs.

W--Fi is the obvious way to go but the room is in back of the house up stairs and long way from the router so Wi-Fi might not have the range and speed.

I found the 2 Powerline adapters for $50, which is less than a good 11n router.

Looks like Powerline offers stability and speed in my situation.

Are there any other advantages of Powerline? Is it safe?

Re: Thinking of Powerline for networking

I have never used any power line network devices; however the reviews on Newegg are favorable:
