John J. Posey "Corpsecure", Amazon
10 March 2012
  • Summary: Netgear Digital Entertainer Purchased on Amazon, have had for over 1 year, havent even had 5 functional minutes of viewing time using this item, Netgear support is a joke, tech was in a tent somewhere with cue cards, Tech advised me to......

  • Summary: This item from Netgear was a great concept; the reality was far less enjoyable... Pros: 1. Sound Quality through digital coax was excellent into high-end audio system. 2. Purchased through Amazon seller Forrest Electronics; really satisfied with them! Cons: 1.

Won't work with XP Home & Netgear won't make up for it

Jerry F. Callahan, Amazon
13 June 2011
  • Summary: WARNING: Don't buy this item if you expect it to work with Windows XP Home edition. It took hours on the phone before Netgear admitted that this was case, even though it clearly states on packaging and ads that it works with "Windows XP". No exclusions for Home version.

Good - But Not Perfect.

Douglas T., Newegg
21 October 2010
  • Summary: I have had no problems with anything I have tried to play media wise, iso's, mkv's, avi's... all without a hiccup. Was a bit annoying to get photo's to slideshow when played from a digital camera plugged directly into the USB port... but I don't think this was an intended feature.
  • Pros: Will play just about anything thrown at it. Blends with other equipment, Polished GUI (Not perfect, but aesthetically pleasing)
  • Cons: Headache with Windows 7. Internet Apps Lacking - No YouTube, NetFlix Support and will never get due to no more updates. PS3 does everything this does except ISOs and mkv's (But I just convert mkv's into a compatible format).

Netgear EVA9150 Digital Entertainer Elite

fairwinds, CNET
11 September 2010
  • Summary: My EVA9150 has never streamed Youtube, even though it is one of the first claims in the literature. It is also very hit and miss as to which AV formats it will play. Unfortunately for me, it does not play the VOB files created by my Panasonic DVD recorders, which means I have to convert them all,...
  • Pros: Build quality, versatlility
  • Cons: Not streaming youtube, very poor customer support

Look for something better...

Alejandro Luis Vlasich, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: Bought this unit some weeks ago. Looked nice and easy to use. (I am an IT specialist, so I am used to deal with complicated stuff). Plugged this into my home theater and first surprise: the image quality was total crap. It's a lie that it outputs 1080p.

Worthless

Garrett T., Newegg
8 August 2010
  • Summary: This platform had a lot of potential. Decent CPU, onboard SATA, upgradable firmware and 802.11n. If someone were to ever develop a replacement firmware, it would be a great unit to own.
  • Pros: Wireless N, Built-In Hard Drive, Nice Remote.
  • Cons: It does play most videos, however, it doesn't fully support most compression formats. Video/Audio sync issues especially common when using FF/RW. Picture quality is grainy. Filesharing with Windows 7 requires a firmware update to a beta (unsupported) firmware. What's more, Netgear seems to have s...

Yep

Leo M., Newegg
31 July 2010
  • Summary: Netgear is no longer releasing firmware updates so product is essentially dead from that aspect. Features that are supposed to work, do not. No future releases have been mentioned. Last FW update was last year.
  • Pros: Does most of what it is supposed to do.
  • Cons: Don't expect internet features that are stellar. Lots of reboots. GUI is poor.

Not what I Needed

Peter W., Newegg
3 July 2010
  • Summary: A Cheap PC with a TV tuner and hard disc would work better for what I need.
  • Pros: Not sure, did not do what I needed so I did not spend time learning more about it.
  • Cons: I bought this product hoping it would have internet connectivity and work well as an internet and media server. It may work well as a media server but as an internet device it is pretty useless.

Blu-Ray Not Fully Supported

T. N. Lopas, Amazon
23 March 2010
  • Summary: If you are someone who had downloaded hundreds of movies off of the internet or maybe you have a massive home movie collection that you want to be able to play on your TV instead of on your PC then this product might be for you.
