Excerpt: D-Link's DSM-510 earned four stars in our last group test of streaming media receivers. Like Zyxel's DMA1100P, the DSM-510 looks more like a router than part of a home entertainment system and will be more conspicuous under most TV units than Netgear's larger EVA9150, but its compact case and optional stand that props it on its side is an advantage if you want to save space. The DSM-510 is easy to set up, and its simple interface is effortless to use.
Conclusion: If you don't have Viiv support, and can cope with being tied into Windows Media Player 11, the DSM-510 offers a well designed and adaptable solution for streaming content around the home. If you can use it to its potential you'll find an impressive array of functionality built into one of the most compact units we've seen yet.
Pros: Impressive streaming performance, very portable, range of content available through Viiv
Cons: A tad uninspiring if you can't utilise Intel's service, minor interface and operation issues
Excerpt: Media streamers are growing in capability, with this the first to be DivX accredited. Installation is easy (even more so with a Viiv PC and router), with 802.11g wireless and wired networking options, plus USB for local content. There's no server software included, but Windows Media Player 11 can be used to access your host PC's audio, photos and video. Most files played flawlessly (including DVR-MS and H.264), although more obscure variants failed.
