Summary: You can't go wrong when you buy a media streamer for $7 that's not just "for parts." Unfortunately, it won't work with our Windows 7 & 8 laptops, but it does work with my work laptop running XP. I may be able to use it for a presentation. I bought the Roku 3 on Amazon, too.
Summary: I first tried this product using a laptop with 802.11g. I was streaming video from various sites on the internet (watching movies) and then putting them in fullscreen mode. I experimented with photo and video mode. Video mode is lower resolution.
Summary: What can I say... the product sucks. Read many negative reviews but thought it would be different for me. I'm sure most people will do the same as me and think a lousy product will perform different just for them but it won't. I bought more than one just to play my odds... Yeah right!
Summary: I'm rating this item based on my personal experience in stress testing this product for a home-based wireless media network. My rating of 3 stars references my general feeling of the product, not weighing in its glaring flaws.
Summary: Well.. for a first time product.. it's not bad.. but it's closer to bad.. than it is to good.. Wireless configuration is a pain! Software connection from PC to the device.. works maybe 20% of the time.. Frequent and significant lag on video..
Great idea but I would buy something else right now

Summary: I've been looking for something to let me watch my mp4 video collection on TV for some time and in the last year there have been a number of products introduced. When I was at Fry's I saw this on sale for $99 so I decided to give it a try.

Summary: I made the mistake of not adhearing to the reviews on the Internet. With regards to the vendor, Amazon.... Excellent. I first try to purchase from them as historically they have been great to work with when having issues and good pricing and service. In this case, no exception.
Doesn't Work w/ Media Center. Failure of a Good Idea.

Summary: I have been patiently waiting for this device for about a year and, unfortunately, I came out disappointed. My hope was that I'd finally have a device to stream ripped DVD's (.vob files) and recorded TV shows through the Windows Vista Media Center interface, and this device couldn't cut it.
