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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Summary: If you are looking for an All-In-One media player that will do everything via USB or Network (NAS/SAN), then this is the product for you. However, some have complained about poor network performance.
Summary: I am reviewing this only on the reason I bought it. It will play gapless audio from a file share. The manual has the details. The manual does not tell you it will not do gapless via DLNA. It's best to put this unit in standby so that it can update the playable files.
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!
Not at yesterday's Price point . . . Thanks Kellards :)

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.
