Summary: I'm a big fan of the DLink DSM-520 as a media receiver. So the DSM-320RD seemed like a great product. It's a media receiver in the same product line as the DLink DSM-520, but it's newer and it has a built-in DVD player.
Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music.
Summary: I read the other reviews, some glowing, others well.. not so glowing. The price was right, ($149 - 50 rebate) So I thought I would take a chance. I read the other reviews so I have no one else to blame but myself.
Summary: Even after reading the bad reviews this product received from other reviewers I still purchased it. It is pretty easy to set up, but once connected to my PC it had very inconsistent behavior. The device would lose connection to the server after a being idle for 1-2 hours and require a reset.
Summary: We turned our porch into a 4-season sunroom/TV room a year ago. In addition to wiring it with coax, I ran a few ethernet cables in as well just have them. When we were done, we had the perfect place to watch TV on our new 42" plasma.
Dump the shipped software and you will be very happy!

Summary: After a couple of days of no luck with the shipped software, I started reading deeper into these reviews and took the advice of those using TVersity. Within a few minutes of installing and configuring it, I had a perfectly functioning media player!
Summary: I bought this unit after trying another Media Center Extender product by another manufacturer. I spent about 2 hours on the phone with tech support because I could not get the DSM 320 to recognize my playlists.
Summary: Great product that worked out of the box. I'll explain... This is EXACTLY the product I needed. I have an ATI TV Tuner Card installed on my computer and over time have created a large collection of my favorite TV shows in mpeg format.
Summary: I've had my DSM 320 for a little over a year now, and I have now given up on the unit. While the idea of the wireless media player is very enticing, the problems one encounters on the way make it less than enjoyable.
Summary: I bought this primarily so I could play music from my PC over my stereo system for the house. It works well and the sound is good (I have a D-Link router so no problems with compatibility). However, I have just two complaints: 1) The software interface on the PC needs a lot of improvement.
