No good for streaming

Ronald B Hall, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: This works pretty good as a media player from hard drives.I like the fact you can use cover art to list your music and movies. I have my entire media library on two 3 terabyte hard drives and it catalogs them fairly well.You will have to obtain meta data files for your media.That will take sometime.Good winter project for you. The con is it won't play youtube videos and they don't seem to be trying to fix it.

Price exaggerated

Najd, Amazon

  • Summary: Just I bought it @ 86$ less than 1 year ago and now I'm very surprise to find the price rise by more than 100%. I think it's very exaggerated price.

"Streaming is goood, lots of content & HD when available"

AnchorNick, CNET

  • Pros: HD content when available, great for streaming, good buffering
  • Cons: Poor menu responsiveness, annoying but it does function. Rewind/Fastforward is ok but difficult to manage.

NeoTV 550

Parry, Amazon
3 November 2011
  • Summary: This is an interesting product and streams nicely from my LAN. Unfortunately it does NOT support netflix, or amazon streaming and it appears that the company is no longer pursuing netflix certification. If you have a large number of movies stored on your network, this might be a worthwhile product. Most people however, should look elsewehre.

A fine player, but not quite what I expected...

Michael, Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: This media adapter disappointed me. That is not to say that it is a bad media player. That statement is, after all, subjective, based on my expectations. You see, I own and have reviewed the NETGEAR Digital Entertainer Express (EVA9100) . That player is, in my opinion, the best player of its kind, on the market. My disappointment, then, is based on an inescapable comparison to that player. In addition, this review is slanted towards the player's ability to show movies.

Pretty Good Initial Effort. Video Playback is excellent. GUI, Pics, and Music need a little work

Home Theater Geek "Tech Guru", Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Overall not a bad peice of kit compared to the boxee box and a lot of streamers at release. its not perfect and still needs bug fixes but it plays BD Iso and plays m2ts files Both trueHD and DTS-MA bitstreaming and decoding (all work well) DVD ISO's with menus work well Decent Movie GUI (used Media Center Master to create the cover art, fan art etc).... Works with my Harmony universal remote Support playlists and plays back all the different audio files correctly.

Gutes Gerät mit ein paar Schwächen

Christian Schulze, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Die Installation ist einfach und in ein paar Minuten abgeschlossen. Die Oberfläche reagiert etwas träge, es reicht aber für flüssiges arbeiten. Es gibt ein paar Schwächen, das Gerät hängt u.U. nach schnellem Vorlauf in Filmen. Auch wacht das Gerät von Zeit zu Zeit nicht aus dem Standby auf und muss kurz vom Netz getrennt werden. Insgesamt würde die Firmware das eine oder andere update vertragen, ob da nochmal was kommt ist aber wohl fraglich.

gut, spielt tatsächlich alles? aber wirkt billig und ...

Brixx, Amazon
20 June 2012
  • Summary: ...habe mir nach langem hin und her das Teil bestellt. Wichtig war mir auch die Anschlußmöglichkeit des Blue-Ray-Laufwerkes damit sollte somit alles abspielbar sein. Das stimmt nicht ganz. Das Laufwerk wird zwar erkannt, spielt aber keine BlueRays ab (das Rücksetzen der Firmwareversion half hier nicht). Ansonsten wirkt das Gerät etwas billig im Plastik-Look, schade.

Brauchbarer Kompromiß

RingliFan, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: Wir hatten schon fast nicht mehr daran geglaubt, dass es einen gut funktionierenden, bezahlbaren Netzwerkplayer gibt, bis wir hier endlich fündig geworden sind. In Stichpunketen: + einfache Installation + Netzwerkeinbindung ohne Probleme + alle getesteten Videoformate laufen auf Anhieb + gutes Bild + gute Internetradio Funktion - Menüführung etwas umständlich; haben wir schon deutlich besser gesehen - hoher Preis Alle anderen MMPlayer mussten wir wegen gravierenden...
