Summary: Well I have had others and this unit is by far the best out there for now. It will play most all of the media out there and I have had no problems with it so far. I looked and read a lot of reviews and this one always stood out above the rest.
Summary: Works great for watching movies stored on USB hard drives. My movies are in ISO format, and I'm able to watch them with no problems. I'm not interested in streaming media, so for me this all I need. Just connect to TV with HDMI cable and you're ready to watch a movie or view pictures.
Summary: This is a review of the Netgear NeoTV 550 with updated firmware version 3.0.268 EU. I received the device from a European retailer on Nov 30, 2010. The Netgear NeoTV 550 is a complex product to review.
Summary: After using the NeoTV 550 for a couple days now, my initial reactions are really positive. Pros: * Setup was simple. The Neo saw all my media shared and immediately scanned them without issue. The options are all pretty straightforward (except for SACK processing, whatever that is).
Summary: NTV550 is a solid performing unit with some great capabilities and few issues. Easily handles BluRay ISO streaming over my local gigabit network; DVDs are zero problems. Setup is very easy, although I was surprised that there was no included PRINTED manual (which isn't as big deal these days).
Summary: The specifications are well know and in-depth discussions are available on the AVS Forums (highly recommended) so I won't go into all that. I have had my unit for about a month and there is a lot to explore. My environment is both music (FLAC) and video (Bluray and regular DVD).
Summary: I own the unit less than a month. When it boots, the boot screen loads and then blinks a couple of times and finally the screen goes blank. If I boot the unit with the Ethernet Cable disconnected, it boots normally and I get a message that the unit has recovered from a major error.
Summary: I only paid $116.00 for this unit so I will tell you for the money it is pretty good. I have found a few minor bugs but all in all it is good. I have to admit of all the media player in the under $200 price range this one has the best instruction book and customer support.
