Cheap gimmick sold for exorbitant price

Braden, Amazon
13 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this "used" for $10, which was waste of money, so I feel really bad for anyone who paid full-retail price. Pros: All necessary parts were included with batteries. Cons: (besides the people who sell it) It takes around 30 seconds to start. The online service that the device wants to connect to for updates (on first start) has clearly been disabled for some time now. Navigating is sluggish, so searching for Youtube videos or anything else is not convenient.

As advertized

Don Jump, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: The unit itself functions as advertized, however the remote has a conflict with the TV. I have not been able to resolve the conflict with the TV when I use the remote. I have to cover the sensor on the TV in order to keep the TV from going bonkers when I use the netgear remote. These devices need to offer different frequencies to use in order to resolve these type of conflicts. For this reason and only this reason I gave it 3 of 5. It really is a pita.

Doesn't do much.

J. Gambino "-Joey", Amazon
24 September 2012
  • Summary: This unit doesn't connect to Hulu, or Netflix, read the description very carefully. I'm really not even sure what it does. It connected to my media server, to a point. I had it and my media server hard-wired to the same router, 3 feet from one another. The tiling/pixelation was unbearable and unwatchable. You know when you have a satellite cable service and there's a snowstorm or rain and you get all those blocks on the screen?

FInd a refurb

Daniel Salzano "Danneauxs", Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for $18 somewhere else. YES $100 less and it was refurbished. I'm not plugging the other site so that's not what this is about but it does effect my review. For $18 this is a great player. Bur for $118 shop for something else. Pros: small, fast(ish) boot time, easy menus, plays well. Cons: Menu scrolling does not loop or jump.

That's what you get

Rock, Amazon
18 May 2012
  • Summary: That's what I get for not reading all the reviews before ordering. No instructions, no availability of propriety usb wireless connector making the whole thing worthless to me. I have learned a lesson about these kinds of purchases... thanks for nothing.

Netgear digital entertainer live (refurbished)

sur "I am", Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: What they do not tell you about this item is that Netgear has it listed as discontinued. If you want to use it to stream TV from a wireless router, you'll need Netgear "wireless USB adapter for Digital Entertainer Live" (also a discontinued item) which Amazon does not sell. After endless hours of searching for one, I was able to obtain one from E-bay for three times the cost of the Netgear entertainer live unit.

"Lots of Internet TV/ Video options, but lacks better UI"

Chi-420, CNET
30 August 2010
  • Pros: EVA2000 was easy to setup and connect to my network (wired). I connected STB through PlayOn software, you could easily connect through Windows Media Player. PlayOn offers you lot more channels (Hulu, SpikeTV ...) and view media of my NAS on the TV.
  • Cons: I wished it had on/off button or reset button atleast, because right now you have to unplug it. Also, better on-screen user interface because, right now you have to scroll through the list for everything.
