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.
Summary: This media server handles the most common file types in use today like MP3, WAV, WMA, Ogg, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, AVI, WMV, DVR-MS, XVID, JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF and GIF. It comes with an HDMI port so it will mesh well with today's newest receivers and other home video equipment.
Pros: Plays most common file formats available today, HDMI port, 802.11g + RJ-45 hook-up, small footprint.
Cons: Wireless can be problematic. Best kept to people that are tech savvy.
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.
External Hard Drive Needed for Superior Video & Audio or a Recommended Wired Connection

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.
