ehhh...

Luke H., Newegg

  • Summary: I will continue to buy Dlink products, but they really dropped the ball on this device. Maybe with some decent firmware updates this will be a worthwhile investment, but at the rate they put out updates I will have bought a new device.
  • Pros: The picture quality is excellent and the audio is on par as well. Takes a home theater from needing a huge HTPC to this little tiny box. Ability to use wireless is a plus for certain scenarios. I definitely prefer the wired route, more stable.
  • Cons: I own many and only D-Link products and love all of them, but this product has left a sour taste in my mouth. The packaged software is WORTHLESS! It doesn't transcode properly and when it does you can only use it for the 30 day trial period! The Firmware is buggy. I use a Harmony remote and it ha...

OMG - This box is great ! ! ! (after the firmware upgrade)

  • Summary: This little guy exceeds my expectations. I never take the time to write reviews, but after spending two days with my new little friend, the DSM-510, I feel he deserves some outward praise. My setup: I have a PC with Windows Vista MCE running in a closet.

External Hard Drive Needed for Superior Video & Audio or a Recommended Wired Connection

R. Silver, Amazon

  • Summary: I admit I was overwhelmed when I purchased this product as in the past I had Sony's version that I was unable to hook up, no matter how much I followed the directions, called tech support, finally got it working only for it to crash and never come up again.

Simple Solution Compared to Alternatives

Chris Maine, Amazon
22 May 2008
  • Summary: I've been wanting to do the full PC to TV thing for a while now so that I could watch my Divx movies from Bittorrent, but never had the cash or time to set up the entire rig. I also wanted to run my music through my surround that is set up on my TV.

stay away

Aleksandar Obradovic, Amazon
22 May 2008
  • Summary: Bought this unit along with the Extreme gigabit wireless router. DSM-510 was DOA. Took it back, and got the second one. It is unable to stream consistent video for more than 10 minutes to a room that is one wall and 15 feet away. Save your money and your time and get something else.

It has its quirks but I love it

Seth A. Redmond, Amazon
22 May 2008
  • Summary: Ok, I will agree with some of the people here that this thing does have its problem, but with a little tweaking it works well. I have my connected through a Netgear MIMO router to a Vista (boo) machine. I bought this from my brother in law who went full scale media center pc.

This is recommended but you have to know what you are doing.

  • Summary: Finally, something I can recommend: the Dlink DSM-510. Here's my story. My wife bought me DSM-510 around Thanksgiving for this Christmas. They had it on sale. I did lots of research before hand to ensure that I knew what I was doing.
