Netgear EVA8000 Review

Digitaltrends
5 September 2007
  • Conclusion: The only real competitor to the Enterainer would seem to be the AppleTV, but this doesn’t really do a service to either device as the technical differences are obvious but not deal-breakers in either case. On the hardware side, the AppleTV has faster wireless, a smaller form-factor with an internal drive but no USB external access and is limited to 720p video/1080i upscaling capabilities.
  • Pros: Allows you to easily view content from your PC; connects directly to the internet
  • Cons: Lacks a hard drive; relies on PC; slow to load iTunes content

  • Excerpt: Netgear's Digital Entertainer HD acts as a bridge between the study and the lounge room, putting your multimedia files on your television and stereo system. The EVA8000 Digital Entertainer HD looks like a slimline DVD player and comes with a remote control, but there's no optical drive at the front, just a USB port and headphones jack.

What Hi-Fi?
3 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Netgear's bid to enter your lounge is one genuinely worth considering. It's really easy to set up, finding suitable networks within seconds. Unlike some rivals, it'll smoothly playback wirelessly streamed HD content. Our 720p test videos were colourful and detailed, with no stuttering to spoil the delivery. Also unlike several competitors, the EVA supports protected music purchased from iTunes.
  • Pros: Stutter-free wireless streaming, access to YouTube, plays copy-protected music files
  • Cons: No Apple Lossless support, no DVD

  • Summary: Like the KiSS 1600 from rival Linksys, the EVA8000 benefits from the fact that Netgear knows its way around a computer. Wireless wonder For starters, it’s really easy to get going and once hooked up will locate suitable networks in mere moments. And unlike some rival streamers, the EVA8000 loves streaming smooth, sharp HD video wirelessly. Our 720p test videos were colourful and detailed and there was no horrible stuttering to ruin the delivery.
