No Windows 8 connectivity

Stephen K. Horn "Chefkowboy", Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: Streams beautifully. Connected with MyWiFi on Windows 7, which presented some difficulties with connection. Couldn't find the device a couple of times, had to unplug to reconnect. Now loaded Windows 8 and Intel has not provided an upgrade for the NEO TV so I can't use right now.

Flawed Pandora streaming

Ramart, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: Initially, I couldn't have been more impressed. Like other Netgear products I've used, the NTV200 seemed bulletproof. It has an impressive range of features, streams from Netflix just fine (though I wish they'd enable 5.1 surround audio; with the NTV200 you'll only get a 2-channel audio signal).

Not worth it. Buy a Roku

Sharkbait790, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to save some money since we already had a Roku in the living room. I absolutely hate this product. It is extremely slow and takes forever to connect to the internet while my Roku in the other room is automatically ready to go.

Not ready for Prime Time

John T. Desantis, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: Bought this with great expectations, but it did not live up to them. I returned it after a few days. At first it seemed OK, but after awhile I realized it isn't what I want in a streamer. First of all, no CC...I have hearing issues. The unit is slow to react to the remote sometimes.

Not enough content

Sameer, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: We are currently using the Netgear NeoTV Pro as a Netflix interface :( All the other content offered via the Netgear servers are not usable. The content partners offered are all B tiered services. Most of the content are trailers or videos that are less than 5 mins.

Neo tv slower than a turtle

Easy viewer, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this in a moment of weakness because I thought it would be just as good as a Roku, which I used at another house. Neo has a keyboard, which I thought would be helpful. Turns out not many apps enable it. The processor is slow as molasses. Roku is a rocket in comparison.

Not a good device for Netflix

Rickymem, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: This device is "OK" if you want to use it for Yupptv. But it is horrible for Netflix. By mistake I have selected my kids profile on Netflix on the NeoTV and I am not able to change that profile. I did complete factory reset, still it is not allowing me to change the profile.

WiDi does not work with Windows 8

B. Copeland, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: I went with this player instead of a Roku because of the WiDi feature. I was very disappointed when I hooked it up and the device was not compatible with Windows 8. After looking around, I found I wasn't the only one to be disappointed by that and it appears that Netgear isn't all that interested in...
