Good Potential

TF "TF", Amazon
8 January 2010
  • Summary: I have had this unit for almost a year. I had the older model EVA700 prior. I like the EVA8000. I use it hard wired to my ReadyNas Duo server through a switch. Music sounds great, and it can also stream FLAC files.

Excellent networked media player

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: As a long-time user of networked media devices (I have three AudioTrons), I was looking for something that would make my DVD collection as useful as my CD collection is.

The best I've seen

Carey Daly, Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: I've been fussing with MCE since 1.0 I've been playing with video long before that (early VCR, etc.) I've been in the computer business (hardware and software)for over 38 years. YES, you may consider me over the hill, but if I am... I'll take my EVA8000 with me.

  • Summary: Here is the situation: I have more than 600 DVDs that I am in the process of ripping onto hard drives. They are ripped in standard DVD format (VOB/IFO) full quality, no compression/encoding, just raw dvd files.

It's Great Now

Tracy Hill "Techno Geek", Amazon
13 November 2008
  • Summary: When I purchased the EVA8000 a year ago, I was horrified at how many bugs there were in the software. But I have to give Netgear kudos for really supporting the device. I have grown to love it now. I am using it with two DNS-323s for 3TB of music, photos, and movies.

Technical user device

W.L., Amazon
25 August 2008
  • Summary: I am in a Network Admin so the network setup was a snap (both wireless and wired) BUT...Nothing worked. Every media format I tried to play would give me the "media format is not supported" message. Image files would not display and mp3's would not play. Even after several cold reboots.

Electronics nut, Amazon
9 July 2008
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this unit but mine was essentailly DOA. I spent several hours with Netgear tech support and it wouldn't read networked files nor files from a usb stick directly plugged into the unit.
