Netgear Digital Entertainer Elite EVA9150

maximum pc
23 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Netgear’s EVA9150 improves on the previous-generation Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000 in just about every way. But its best feature has to be the integrated 500GB hard drive, which adds a mere $50 to the new product’s price tag. Its inability to stream movies from a Netflix or Amazon account or connect to Hulu, on the other hand, are major shortcomings. Aside from that, the EVA9150 is the next best thing to putting a home-theater PC in your entertainment center.
  • Pros: Dual-band 802.11n; strong codec and container support; 500GB hard drive included.
  • Cons: No love for Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu.

Netgear Digital Entertainer Elite EVA9150: Streaming-Alleskönner

CNET
15 May 2009
  • Summary: Mit seinem Digital Entertainer Elite EVA9150 verkauft Netgear ein Gerät, das Multimediadateien ohne Windows Media Center vom Rechner via Netzwerk oder WLAN zum Fernseher streamt. Dabei bringt das Gerät nicht nur ein eigenes Interface mit, es unterstützt auch annähernd jedes Dateiformat im Universum. Der Zugriff auf Online-Inhalte funktioniert ebenfalls. Allerdings ist das Modell nicht ganz billig.
  • Pros: streamt Medien via Netzwerk, unterstützt extrem viele Dateiformate, greift mittels RSS-Feeds auf Medien zu, spielt Online-Videos ab, kommt mit austauschbarer 500-GByte-Festplatte, hat WLAN nach IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n an Bord, benötigt kein Windows Media Center, spielt Youtube-Videos (h.264)
  • Cons: etwas teuer, stürzt gelegentlich ab, spielt keine DRM-geschützten Videos aus dem iTunes Store, greift nicht auf flashbasierte Online-Videos zu, kein Zugriff auf Videostreaming-Dienste
