Excerpt: We like Netgear’s EVA8000—a lot. Its industrial design fits in with the rest of our AV gear, its user interface is as elegant and polished as it is easy to use, it supports resolutions up to 1080p with an HDMI port, and that’s just the beginning. But if you buy one, make sure it has the latest firmware update before you do anything else. We couldn’t configure our review unit at all until we updated the software.
Pros: Interface support for popular Internet media; program guide and PVR for PC TV tuners.
Cons: No Rhapsody support; crashed once during testing.
Summary: This media streaming device is cable of streaming videos, music, photos, even YouTube content. It's easy to set up and use, and should please anyone who's looking to broaden their home entertainment palette.
Pros: Can stream YouTube and Flickr content, music, videos and Internet radio stations; it's easy to set up and use; it has HDMI and component video output ports; it has digital audio output ports, it can play content purchased from the iTunes store
Cons: The aspect ratio had to be changed every time in order to watch videos on our 4:3 TV, it lacks 802.11 draft-n networking
