Conclusion: There's plenty to like about the Philips HMP2000: setup is straightforward, navigation is user-friendly, and it does what it promises without fuss. The potentially limiting factor is how onboard you are with streaming services, since if you harbor ambitions to use anything other than Netflix and YouTube you're basically out of luck.
Excerpt: If you've been hankering to get Netflix on your TV, Philips has a cheap way to do so with its HMP2000 media player. This tiny wedge is the height of simplicity, with just a single HDMI port on the rear. There's no Ethernet socket at all and connection to the internet is entirely through the built-in 802.11n wireless networking. Power the box on and the simplicity continues, with just five icons taking up the home page: Netflix, YouTube, USB, Internet Services and Setup.
