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. With Roku there is no need. If you don't mind a media server like playon then get this. If not buy roku.
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. An excellent feature of the Digital Entertainer Live is that it plays YouTune Play Lists without intervention. The Xbox 360 I use to watch YouTube on another TV will not do this.
Summary: An excellent device to stream movies to your HDTV. I added the wireless option and found it was very easy to configure and get going. I stream movies, reviewed a new collection of family pictures and surf You Tube. I recently added PlayOn for additional movie and TV options. Overall this was a great and simple to use device. NO regrest at all!

When first using the eva2000 on your TV, you are met with a very clean interface that gives you options to access popular websites, live Internet, do video searches or access media from your...
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. This product would make a perfect gift item to a relative or good friend.
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. I used wireless adapter (WN111V2) and works great too.
Summary: This product is great for my needs. I don't require the "ultimate" in streaming power; rather, I watch a lot of stuff on the Internet. The Digital Entertainer Live is perfect for this. In all the time I have been using it, it hasn't locked up or stalled even once (honestly) and streams equally well from my network and the Internet (admittedly, I have a super fast 15 mbps connection.
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. With so many family members - we can actually find things we're all interested in.
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. Sure, there were 10,000 movies, but they were all old. When I saw these new players emerge, I decided I'd wait for the NETGEAR brand, since I already have a lot of their equipment that I'm happy with.
