Sony SMP-N100 Review – Network Media Player with Wi-Fi, Netflix and Hulu Plus

Review Horizon
20 April 2011
  • Conclusion: As I mentioned before, SMP-N100 is a very weird animal: Offers a certain degree of local support while also implementing all three big streaming clients (Netflix, Amazon VoD and Hulu Plus). No other box does that and, at $89 at Amazon, is a very good deal.
  • Pros: Excellent streaming clients support, cheap, brand recognition, decent codec support from USB storage, decodes Dolby Digital / DTS natively
  • Cons: Limited codec support via DLNA, ugly interface, older style Netflix client

  • Excerpt: There must be plenty of readers who have spent the best part of a grand on a cutting-edge full HD TV, only to discover that its replacement model is ‘network-enabled’. Increasingly popular, this feature enables you to stream video from various websites, install widgets and play video content, music or photos stored on devices connected to your home network.

  • Summary: Given the strength of Sony’s net-friendly TVs and Blu-ray players, it’s no surprise that the company’s new SMP-N100 media streamer is a thoroughly equipped, well-developed little device. Dubbed the Netbox, the Sony offers more of a plug ’n’ play experience than more open-source rivals such as the Boxee Box. Instead, it provides a range of consistently high-quality content, much like the similarly approachable Apple TV, and it’s this simplicity that cements its appeal.

Sony SMP-N100 review

Pocket Lint
2 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The SMP-N100 is Sony’s first dedicated IPTV and network media player. Once the exclusive province of relatively esoteric PC brands, this sector of the market is now being groomed by the big TV makers, which means a whole new tranche of telly-watchers are about to be seduced by the instant gratification offered by streaming TV. This can only be a good thing.
  • Pros: Well built and appointed media player, strong IPTV selection including BBC iPlayer, YouTube and Lovefilm
  • Cons: Limited file support when it comes to network streaming, only really of use if you intend to feed it media files directly via front-mounted USB
