Summary: Spent a lot of time researching which media extender to go with D-Link/HP/Linksys/X-Box. Don't play games and wanted a component that was quiet so the x-box was out. Primary goal was to access music, pictures and PC used as a DVR in bedroom from my study on Windows Vista Home Premium. Have also got the Sonos music system installed (brilliant) in all other rooms except the bedroom and wanted to access the same music libraries (All digital in my house).
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls
Summary: When I first learned about the ability to interact with my Vista computer for watching TV I went with the only available option - the Xbox 360. I was not a gamer so it was only used for watching our media from our Vista computer (ok I played a demo game once in a while). I hated the XBOX 360 for several reasons.
Pros: Easy To Setup, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
