Wireless for the smaller hand held devices and hard wire for the work horse situations. I wouldn't even consider going strictly wireless.
That is exactly how I have my house wired. I have coax and 2 cat6's going to each spot where a tv will be. And I have another cat 6 in key rooms for a computer. In addition to my wireless.

Your numbers are actually off on 5e & 6. 5 is no longer a standard. Has not been for over 17 years.

Cat-5e can handle up to 10gb/s, Cat-6 up to 20gb/s as tested so far. Possibility of up to 50gb/s in a lab environment.

Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
