Summary: I just got Comcast cable card and use it with hdhomerun prime . I thought about going with tivo and cable card but tivo is way too expensive so I went with a free solution which means a windows media center pc ( got one off amazon for 150$ plus this extender 70$ for bedroom tv ) This works...
Summary: I saw the system that I wanted, the D-Link DSM 750, and Amazon also offered a used system for half the price. The picture showed the complete system, including antennas, but I did not receive the antenna. I was later told that it was in the bubble wrap, so my mistake.
Returned the product, get a Playstation or XBox instead...

Summary: This product seemed to work fine with Vista Home Premium and Windows Media Center and setup was easy enough with the LAN connection, however I made the assumption that I could use it for the NetFlix 'Instant' dvd/tv/etc. since I can do this with Media Center on the pc itself.
Summary: I bought this product primarily to stream music from my desktop to my TV and stereo. Setup was fairly easy and the interface is okay. However, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you want it to stream music.
Summary: I connected to a dir-655. signal was terrible, the unit was only 1 floor down, 1 room away. Laptop always gets full signal in same spot. I had to get a powerline adaptor to get a signal (defeats the wireless idea) I get pictures, but can get a single video to work, using the media extender nor media...
Summary: The product itself is very beatiful and fits very well to other components. I had the idea to buy the DSM-750 after my DVD player was broken. I was intended to see the movies I already had in my computer (divx), using my '.srt' subtitles and profiting from wireless 802.11n speed.
Great product when when wired to a network / Wireless is useless

Summary: Pros: Dual mode. Works with many servers in medialounge mode WMP11, DLINK Medialounge, PlayOn, HAVA Titanium Works as a Windows Media Center Extender. Works great when wired Cons: Wireless receiver is poor. Gets unresponsive or very slow if wireless reception is not good.
Summary: It's 3/22/09 and I thought I'd take a chance as amazon was 30$ cheaper than ordering from Dlink directly, but I received one of the defective units. It will not connect to windows media center so I am going to have to ship it back to dlink for repair/replacement.
The only networking item I recently purchased that didn't make me want to do something that would lead to prison time.

Summary: I purchased to pair with the DIR-655 router and the DAP-1522 bridge (the bridge isn't really necessary unless you want your wireless network to include non-N band devices). Of the three, this is the only device that I set up that didn't lead to murderous rage.
Summary: Having previously purchased the Linksys DMA-2200 MCE with DVD player (and returning the worthless piece of garbage) my hopes were not high for this product. I'm happy to say the product works as advertised. Setup was quick, performance is very good, and build quality is excellent.
