Summary: I'm streaming data over a 100Mbs wired network and all my files are stored on Promise NS4600 DLNA box. I ran into too many problems with sharing files from a computer. Go DLNA if you can.
Pros: Plays a lot of different file types. I mainly use .avi with DIVX compression when I convert my videos. Plays them fine via HDMI connection and the quality is quite good considering I full length movies are usually under 1GB in size and they are playing on a 42" plasma. User interface is fast and ...
Cons: No built in wireless. Poor performance playback on with .mkv files.
Summary: The Roku box is better but you can actually get everything you get on the roku on it with the use of playon. If you don't have a half ass decent computer playon sucks. I got a good enough pc to use playon I just don't like using a media server on a PC. I all so hate the cost of playon.
Summary: Installation is quite easy. just plug ethernet cable and turn it on. If you can work the remote control, you are ready view youtube and other streaming video. If you are not looking complicated unit to stream internet video, this is what you want.
Summary: We are a family of 7, and have all sorts of media overflow (just like the demo describes), so thought this would be an easy way to hook up viewing platforms. It does a really good job at that. What's even better though is the video on demand, and Hulu access.
Summary: All I can say is WOW! Moving from my computer monitor to my big screen TV is about to change everything for my viewing experience. I had heard about this new device and decided it was worth waiting for. I was an early adopter of the Roku box & honestly - I was underwhelmed.
Summary: After looking at the market and deciding to go with the digital entertainer, i was pleasantly suprised to find the ease of hook-up and use of this device. It has simple common-sense controls and the clarity in hd is phenomenal.
Summary: The eva2000 goes above and beyond any digital entertainment system that I have ever used. It provides users with Internet video, radio, various networking options from your home computer and usb drives, and on top of that access to movies on demand and youtube all right to your TV.
Summary: The NETGEAR Digital Entertainer Live provides a way for me to watch Internet shows on my TV. I can watch YouTube without a computer. I watch Netflix and Hulu by running PlayOn software on a computer on my home network.
