Technically its 200 km/h on conventional upgraded lines and 250 km/h on new dedicated lines.

I have not been on any we have a higher chance of being invaded by a race of flying unicorns and them becoming our overlords before anyone will see a high speed train over 80 miles on hour in Virginia.

For me:
Arlanda Express
Brussels-Paris
Paris-Strasbourg
Madrid-Alicante (only high-speed to Albacete)
Barcelona-Madrid
Bologna-Florence
low-speed Railjet sections (only used high-speed rolling stock, not high-speed services)

The best service and cars I found in Spain I must say. The ICE's are also nice, with comfy seats and (fake?) wooden walls in the cars. Barcelona-Madrid also uses Velaro stock.

Railjet and especially TGV/Thalys I found much less comfortable. They were rather cramped, and the interior furnishings were nothing to write home about.
