Not worth it.

Matt S. K., Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Only bought it because I found a good deal at $50. The only thing it has going for it is that it is a WMC extender. The delay from pushing a button on the remote to when something actually happens is truly something to behold.

Ted Ebeling, Amazon
21 June 2009
  • Summary: Fairly easy to setup. I occasionally have trouble with losing connection between the computer and the TV when watching recorded shows. Don't know whether it's the computer or the router. Love the "guide" feature.

Largely a waste of money

  • Summary: I bought this since I had hoped we are finally seeing a small, quiet, simple box that centralizes all the digital content in your home in a user-friendly way.

William S. Turner "Bill T", Amazon
16 April 2009

Roger Williamson, Amazon

MediaSmart Connect

  • Summary: This product is great. With the wireless N connection, it takes all of the media files available on my computer and plays them on my Sony widescreen tv downstairs. The HP and Windows Media Center interfaces both work fine.

I like it - It's not everything but it's a lot.

Jonathan J. Lehuta, Amazon
31 March 2009
  • Summary: I have had the MediaSmart Connect box for about a month now. It is good for connecting to Windows shares and playing most of the media types on my distributed hard drives. The hardware is very straight forward and the picture and sound quality are nearly perfect.
