Pinnacle Showcenter 200: A quality streamer if your demands are low
8 June 2010
Summary: This was the first streamer I purchased. It was when I had a CRT TV. At the time it cost me £117.52. The technology is now "old" so it's probably a lot cheaper now. Despite its age, it works well. Admittedly, it has now been replaced by a PS3 for streaming purposes, but sometimes I still prefer the ShowCenter for some of its features that the PS3 lacks (such as film and TV information*). *Needs third party software, which is mentioned later in the review.
Pros: Easy to use, reliable, plenty of features
Cons: Getting a bit old, no support for more modern HD files

Pros: Linking computer to tv and all in 1 music and video
Summary: === Allgemein ========= Wer sich seine Filme, Fotos oder Musik nicht extra auf DVD oder CD brennen will, sondern direkt am Fernseher anschauen möchte, benötigt ein sog. Multimedia Center oder Multimedia PC. Ich wollte dabei auch die lästige Netzwerkverkabelung verhindern und keinen extra PC am Fernseher aufstellen. Somit landete ich beim Pinnacle Showcenter 200. ==== Ausstattung ==========Beim Showcenter ist alles dabei.
