Too Many Problems

Patrick M. Cloud, Amazon
15 June 2006
  • 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. To begin with, the initial installation of the product took two full evenings on the phone with Dlink Tech Support (who are actually quite pleasant). It finally would play, but not playlists or protected music.

Good at many things, but new and buggy

Don Anderson, Amazon
26 November 2004
  • Summary: I like the feature set of the product it mostly does everything it says it will. It plays MP3s, does good slideshows of images and plays video files located on the PC or on a network drive connected to the PC. The set up was easy and I was up and running in less than 30 minutes. It works with both it's own media server software as well as windows media connect.

Late to market and still broken

Michael T. Lloyd "Corky", Amazon
16 July 2004
  • Summary: I just received my Dlink DSM-320. I was initially excited about the product, but after attempting to use it I quickly realised that it needed another 3 or 4 months to be ready for prime-time. Let's start with the big issues: 1. Component out is broken. I tried this on 3 different TVs with component out (Sony Wega, JVC IArt and Pioneer SD-643-HD5) and each time the picture was displayed with a severe blue cast (everything was shades of blue).

DSM-320 Multimedia Failure

James Tanner, Amazon
30 June 2004
  • Summary: Has great features if they worked. I've been researching for just such a device to play all my multimedia files in the comfort of my family room without the restrictions of a computer monitor or small speaker sound. Unfortunatly, most of the features DLink advertises for this product do not work or work slugishly or not without major annoyances.

Quacosa si vede... ma con molta fatica!

Naamah, Ciao
2 January 2008
  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo prodotto da PixMania, perchè in Italia non è stato mai messo in commercio... per fortuna! dico io. Le prime impressioni sono state drammatiche, e quelle seguenti forse peggiori. Come mai? in poche parole... avere un video stabile e fluido è molto difficile e si ottiene solo in particolari condizioni. Innanzitutto il firmware presente è buggato, in tal modo che i video trasmessi in wireless sono al 99% non fludi e scattosi.
  • Pros: Configurazione accessibile .
  • Cons: Per avere un video fluido occorono mooolte prove .

Firmware völlig unausgereift

Macattack, Ciao
11 October 2007
  • Summary: Der DSM-320RD wirkt auf den ersten Blick wie eine gute Alternative zum recht teuren Apple TV. Zusätzlich hat er immerhin einen Kartemleser für Speicherkarten von Digitalkameras sowie ein (leider sehr lautes) DVD-Laufwerk zu bieten. Meine Erfahrungen mit dem Gerät: Es lässt sich sogar unter Mac OS X (mit der Software EyeConnect) recht zügig und unproblematisch einrichten. Das größte Problem des Players ist seine völlig unausgereifte Firmware.
  • Pros: Viele Formate, Gute Netzwerkeinrichtung, Flexibel dank DVD - Laufwerk
  • Cons: Mäßige Verarbeitung, mieser Support, unausgereifte Firmware mit vielen Bugs

Noch nicht ausgereift!

Dodekaeder "dodekaeder", Amazon
8 May 2007
  • Summary: Hallo, folgende Erfahrungen habe ich mit dem Gerät gemacht: 1. Streaming über LAN, mit dem D-Link eigenen Server: funktioniert ganz passabel, aber die Bedienung ist nervig, die Auswahl von Dateien ist sehr gebremst. Besser: Twonky Server, der auf meinem NAS läuft, mit dem bin ich aber abgesehen von der flüssigen Dateiauswahl noch mehr unzufrieden, viele Dateien werden nicht übernommen, große Bilder werden nicht oder nur extrem verzögert angezeigt usw.
