Don't buy this

Mindy & Jon, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: You can't do anything with this unit, nothing at all...you can't even watch You Tube videos on it (they keep claiming I can but it's not happening.) It took me hours to even get the thing working in the first place because it wasn't downloading an initial update correctly and after becoming...

Disposable product

Bri an Hebert, Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: The NetGear NTV550 is practically useless. The majority of advertised features either do not work at all, or do not function reliably. Support from NetGear is virtually non-existant - this is an end of life product they stopped developing several months ago.

waste of money

Kevin Catoe, Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: even after calling Netgear and explaining that I wanted a device to watch recorded TV from my computer on my TV and was told this product would work the best, I had several phone calls and e-mail sessions with their tech support for them to finally tell me it will not support the file types I wish...

Does Not Work

K. Barrett, Amazon
14 March 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the product primarily to use as a media center for my video collection. After several setup attempts with the network, I finally decided to just copy the videos to a portable drive and connect it to the device. It would find the video and play it for about 30 seconds then lock up.

worst customer service

Proteus "Proteus", Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: The neoTV 550 seemed like a good product but after one use it refused to work when I turned it on again. Well, these things sometimes happen to the best of products, so I am not complaining about that. What was an exhausting and frustrating experience was dealing with their customer service.

Worthless

Rick Medugno "Ricomandog", Amazon
9 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this device because of all the great review it has gotten, well let me tell you, I think it is a big scam! I got it up and working pretty quickly on multiple Window 7 PC's (despite the poor documentation). Pros: It does a good job with playing ripped DVD's, but that is it, period!

To say this product is beta is too kind!

PawPawDog, Amazon
31 March 2011
  • Summary: Some people on various forum said NTV550 in its current form is more like a beta. I think they are too kind! This product as is with current f/w version 3.0.325 is full of bugs with subpar performance in many areas. 1. Very poor network performance.
