Linksys DMA2200 Media Center Extender with DVD Review

22 September 2008
  • Conclusion: As a Media Center Extender, the Linksys DMA2200 does what it is supposed to do - it extends media playback from your PC or laptop directly to your electronic hearth - the home theater system or HDTV.  This can be a boon for those who store large quantities of photos, music and/or video on a PC or home network and wish to access these assets from the convenience of the living room or home theater environment.
  • Pros: Delivers the elegance and functionality of Windows Media Center to the living room, Adds a DVD player, all in a single device, Compact design
  • Cons: Upconverting video performance brought no picture improvement to DVDs, Learning remote has limited effective range, Slow startup/restsart

Linksys DMA2200 Media Center Extender

  • Excerpt: We’ve been waiting for media-streaming devices to catch up to 802.11n, and the Linksys DMA2200 does it in style—geek style, that is. The box isn’t particularly attractive, but we dig the dual-band Wi-Fi radio inside that’s capable of operating on either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequency bands. We also appreciate the built-in DVD player that’s capable of scaling our standard-def DVDs to 1080i. (Linksys’s DMA2100, the same hardware sans optical drive, sells for $300.
  • Pros: Dual-band 1080p streaming with built-in DVD player; wide format support.
  • Cons: Vista-only; not much reason to pick one of these over an Xbox 360.

  • Conclusion: An innovative Media Center Extender equipped with wireless draft-n and an upscaling DVD player, but you need a lot of extra kit to take full advantage.
