The best video playback device ever

Robert Klaproth, Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: This device is awesome for playing back your video library on your computer. It checks for updates to both the server software and firmware automatically so you are always getting the latest version of the product. They are constantly adding more features, and I absolutely love this device.

Awesome

Dean J., Newegg
17 March 2009
  • Summary: I researched dozens of streaming boxes and considered building an HTPC but this box has the best price/performance ratio and was the best option.
  • Pros: Quick UI and remote response. High quality video, especially for DivX/XviD files. Great plug-ins, might write my own. Fast and easy setup. 100% quiet.
  • Cons: Some plug-ins are buggy. Need to have server always on (But this helps keep the box responsive and quick). Not uPnP AV compliant (but doesn't really need to be). Needs a hack in order to play more formats. USB port is only for firmware upgrades.

Good Performance and Value

Richard N., Newegg
14 January 2009
  • Summary: i didn't try wireless, but only because I had put a lan port behind my media area when I moved in the house. I did try putting the server on a wireless machine and that worked fine (it just didn't exercise the wireless on the DSM330) Since I bought it there's been a firmware release.
  • Pros: I bought this with little understanding of video and audio formats. I was seeking to collect all of the media in the house onto a hard drive, mostly to put it into a format accessible to wife and kids (after a few broken DVD players.) Also the ability to play back foreign content "region free" wa...
  • Cons: You need to have a PC server available to make it work (actually you can have more than one. Rather than tying up my desktop, I built a small lowcost HTPC just for this. I kept two servers running while I made the transition to the new one.) 720p might be a con, I still have an SDTV in my house. ...

DivX Connected Keeps Getting Better And Better

Davis Freeberg "Davis Freeberg", Amazon
18 December 2008
  • Summary: I've been using DivX Connected for over a year now and can tell you that the product is even better then when it launched. One of the problems with more traditional DivX devices is that because they don't connect to the net, once they ship them, the technology has a tendency to become obsolete.

Actually, 4.5 stars, but well worth the money

Craig Froehle, Amazon
13 August 2008
  • Summary: I've been using the DivX Connected box for over a year now as I got it while it was in beta test. We use it a lot and it works very, very well at what it was designed to do: play on your TV/stereo the media that are located on your PC.

Excelent device!

Patrick Kafka "pk", Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: Overall I love it. I can play all my downloaded media content, home videos, and browse family photos on my tv. It would be nice if it handled a gigabit network connection, because browsing media can stutter sometimes.

Definitely worth purchasing!

Sam B., Newegg
11 July 2008
  • Summary: The previous reviewer mentioned the community hacks for additional video support. I got to be straightforward. These can be tricky but once you get your head around it they work.
  • Pros: I just got this today after reading a lot about it the past year. This is a great device if you have a lot of DivX/Xvid content. The device is easy to set up to your wireless network. Photo and music streaming works very smooth as well. There is still room for improvement on the content side but ...
  • Cons: Server software runs off the PC so you need to have the PC running all the time. But that’s not really a biggie to me. 720p only but I use it with my 720p HDTV anyways.

  • Cons: i can't wait till they get the DivX Connected platform built into other devices so i can have it built into my DVD player and don't need a separate box.

Excellent Media Player

G. Kimpson, Amazon
17 December 2008
  • Summary: After doing lots of research I finally opted for the D-Link 330, a bargain at £99 on Amazon and being a bit of a self-proclaimed 'techie' was very impressed with the kit upon opening the box. Setting this up was very simple, using the quickstart guide I got this up and running in under 5 minutes.
