Showing 1-10 of 500
Plays everything I throw at it and more!!
28 October 2013
Summary: I bought this on a recomendation from a coworker and boy am I happy with this. I used to play media thru my Playstation but had conatant issues with playback. Not with Boxee Box it plays whatever I have sorted on my NAS. You will enjoy this box. I also like the remote with the keyboard on the back.
Summary: I've been an owner of a Boxee for years and it is a great device. I've purchased a refurbished one and it did not work. It turned on and wouldn't do anything else. The remote would not cooperate as well. I requested another one to replace the defective one and the same thing. Very unsatisfied customer.
Summary: I rarely use exclamation points, but D-Link deserves one here. I'm struggling to find terms nasty enough to express my experience with the unit and the company and yet be polite to my readers. First, I've gone through three units, because of various faults. Second, in trying to troubleshoot said faults, one is quite literally subjected to hours on hold before a service rep picks up. Don't even bother with email support, they simply don't answer.
Summary: Supports practically every media format known, can access media through a wide variety of protocols (NFS, SMB, AFP, UPnP), and will automatically download series/episode details and cover art. Provides a large selection of apps (including Netflix, Youtube, Ted, etc.) as well as a web browser. The RF remote with the built-in keyboard is also nice (although it's hard to read the keyboard in dim light).
Summary: i have bought many different media streaming devices, and this is by far the best. it works so well that i'm disappointed that no one can beat it. one of the biggest weaknesses is when the devices have some complex os on them. android is WAY too complex for media streaming, i just want to go up and down and click to get a movie or go into folders. the big difference between this and many other products is that this plays EVERYTHING.
