  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Summary: The product works great. Installing the product requieres some advance knowledge about networks and computers. It integrates gretly with windows media player 11, wich makes it easier, though the original manual and firmware wich it comes with doesn't says anything about it.

This is not HD

  • Summary: This network media player is not capable of wireless HD video playback, even if you put it right next to your wireless router. If you plan to use it for HD video, use it via Ethernet, or buy a Pre-N player for that.
  • Pros: small, HDMI connector, decent software
  • Cons: NOT HD!, crappy remote, poor connectivity

  • Summary: Don't install the S/W that comes with this. For a little extra go and buy TwonkyMedia. Easier to setup. Faster interface than Nero and faster to start movies and playback audio. Resolved all my issues with Nero Home Essentials and added Internet Radio available via the media player.
  • Pros: The hardware is easy to set up and connect to the media server. Great streaming and sound quality over an encrypted pre-n wireless network. Easy to use navigate and use over all.
  • Cons: Nero Home Essentials, Lack of folder structure when browsing audio/video. Constantly turned off when browsing audio. Kept giving errors when trying to playback media.

  • Summary: Liten, smidig, snygg, bra menyer men klarar endast MPEG4 format på video. Vilken tabbe! borde naturligtvis kollat upp detta innan man köper. Tack och lov för öppet köp
