Netgear NeoTV 550 – Geared to Entertain

20 June 2011
  • Summary: We were thoroughly impressed by the Netgear NeoTV 550. It’s a solid player that handles media very well. The very elegantly designed interface is also a thing to look at. Netgear has priced the NeoTV 550 at Rs.14,649, which is a lot of money. There are players that offer more features, but the Netgear offers the features that matter the most and it runs those really well.

  • Conclusion: If you have a lot of media stores in your home network's devices, the Netgear NeoTV NTV550 can bring those files to your HDTV, but a too-high price, and a lack of features spoil the deal.
  • Pros: Supports several file formats. Can catalog videos from different devices.
  • Cons: Expensive. No Wi-Fi. No Netflix, Hulu, or other common online streaming services.

Netgear NeoTV 550 HD Network Media Player Review

Legit Reviews
13 May 2011
  • Excerpt: When Netgear introduced the NeoTV 550 last summer, their goals was to make a complete digital media server that plays movies, music, and photos shared on your computer or networked devices including PCs and Macs.  The NeoTV 550 displays and plays your media in full 1080p with HD 7.1 Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound.  It has a built in SD card slot as well as a couple of USB ports so that you bring over your media directly to the media player without a network.

Good Gear Guide.au
8 June 2011
  • Summary: The Netgear NeoTV NTV550 is a small yet stylish media streamer with good file support and a great menu system. It makes it easy to play videos and music off network locations and attached hard drives. We did experience an intermittent audio problem when playing some files, but it was easily remedied.
  • Pros: Easy-to-use menu system, swift menu performance, vast media file support
  • Cons: Hard to get rid of old network locations, intermittent audio problem at the start of some files

Netgear NeoTV 550 review

24 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Netgear’s latest media streamer can play files from UpNP, DLNA and SMB shares, stream video from YouTube and access internet radio stations. If you don’t want to plug it into your network, it can also access media stored on a flash drive or SDHC card. The NeoTV 550 is a simple black box, with a USB port and SDHC card slot on the front and a smattering of logos.

  • Summary: Впечатления от знакомства с Netgear NeoTV 550 у нас остались смешанные, не совсем однозначные, но в целом – положительные. Нас огорчило то, что данный плеер не отличается "всеядностью" форматов. Однако, того, что Netgear NeoTV 550 умеет, будет достаточно большинству пользователей – ведь данный плеер прекрасно справляется с воспроизведением HD-видео, в том числе образов Blu-Ray и DVD-дисков.
