Summary: I bought TWO DMA-2100 (no dvd drive) from Amazon and was able to hook it up and get it working on my new wireless N 5 GHz home network. I'm browsing through the elegant Media Center menus to find the reason I bought this thing in the first place - DVD PLAYBACK from my Vista Media Center P.C.

Summary: I'm giving this a 3 star rating... reason being as follows: First, I am probably giving this a better rating than a lot of people who have had time to use this product. I originally purchased this item in January this year.
Summary: As a family, we are "hook line and sinker" in the Media Center camp for our TV watching. We don't watch a lot of TV and we get all of our HD over the air (we cancelled cable and sat) but we do use the TV quite a bit for media.
Summary: Have been running this for a few weeks and am buying another one for my other TV. It mimics most of the Vista Media Center user interface and as such is pretty intuitive to use with the supplied remote.
Summary: Easy setup. Small compact. Have had very little success finding a codec that works. All my videos were ripped with AC3 audio which this device does not like. Converting to WMV9 fixed this problem, but is a pain with a large video collection.
