Best Media Player when using USB

speed racer "expert buyer", Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: If your media is on your USB drives this player is amazing. It plays everything and loads fast even if you have tons and tons of files. I love that you can associate the CD or DVD art with the files and that it can display 30 images at once. Scrolling is fast in the event there are 1000s of files and seeing images is way better than just reading the titles.

Does what it's supposed to

Rc2112, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I've read some of the reviews here and I"m surprised by some of the negative responses, poor software, doesn't read all formats, slow connection. I've owned a neotv 550 for 3 years and not once has it not performed to my expectations in fact, it's exceeded them. I thought i would buy the latest iteration NeoTV Max, cheaper and less performance.

Very useful product

Jerry Sebastian, Amazon

  • Summary: My Netgear has been such a nice addition to my equipment. It'll play any file type I throw at it. I have the HDMI connected to my TV and a couple of large portable hard drives. The unit allows me to browse through the files on my drives and watch whatever I want to. Very cool tech.

Could have more functionality, still great for DVD and Blu-ray ISO and hi-def audio, i.e. hi-rez flac

  • Summary: Too bad they discontinued it and there's no real alternative. The looks is not the coolest. It's better than Logitech Squeezebox Touch, WD Live Hub and the Boxee. There is no Cinavia, which is also great. Get it while you can, for the the price it is a real bargain.

Really Good Box

Kenneth J Schall, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: I gave a review of the Boxee Box which I like along with this box which I bought quite a while ago. This box has no netflix, and no real online apps to speak of at all. But if you want a cheap box to play all video formats from a NAS drive this will do just that. I even had an MKV file with audio that was not synced at all with the video. This box allows you yo advance or delay audio by up to 2 seconds. Just a good box for watching your collection.

Excellent ratio price/quality

OLEG, Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent ratio price/quality. Works very silently. Plays many formats. I advise. Remarkable decision. The disk can be taken away. I have many devices of this company. Everything is simple at height!

This thing rocks

FL_Tech, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this because I wanted a media player that displayed my movies with Cover Art. I was using my samsung blue ray player but it would only display the movies and folders like you see on your computer (crap). I now have the nicest media player on the planet! In large part, thanks to a product called tagsuite.exe, which would go get all of the movie info (cover art, movie description, actors, rating, year released, everything!) for each of my movies from IMDB.com.

Not at yesterday's Price point . . . Thanks Kellards :)

Nat Ray, Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: This is a great little box when set up properly. I'd like to buy another, but not at today's price point (December 15, 2011). I purchased one from Amazon on the 8th of December, this month, for $109.95. I'll wait until the holiday shopping spree is over before I check back for a decent price :) *** UPDATE *** Kellards has stepped to the plate and is selling the NeoTV550 at the price I paid on the 8th. I've ordered another, hopefully, it will arrive before Christmas.

"Super media streamer works with no glitches!"

jhwilliams, CNET
29 November 2011
  • Pros: Easy to set up; software updates automaticaly when you hook up to your wifi; great channel selection; huge number of available channels, and most do not require membership; easy to access menus; 1080p quality (when available from source).
  • Cons: Entry of movie names is a little cumbersome, but certainly does not take 10 minutes to enter a title (just a few seconds for each letter); I use my computer to move movies into Netflix Instant Queue (they're waiting for me when I fire up the NeoTV).
