User Review

Yong X., Newegg
5 December 2011
  • Summary: Compared with Apple TV, the in an out of the player look crude. Its strength over Apple TV should be more open, with multiple format and DLNA support, but these good stuff is prepared by a "poor chef" and we got a not so tasty food.
  • Pros: HD up to 1080. Support Amazon Instant video which is free to Prime members.
  • Cons: Slow to start video playback. It can take up to 1min to play movies after you press the play button. This happens in Netflix and movies on USB. MP4, MKV not supported via DLNA. (I changed the suffix from mp4 to AVI, and some videos can be played via DLNA though, how strange)

Question for owner

Jason Z., Newegg
22 November 2011
  • Pros: Unsure - Dont Own One How fast is the stream processing. I have a sony BR player that is DLNA certified and it takes 2.5 min to process the mp4 stream. Is this faster? THe PS3 is almost immediate. Does this FastForward with any reliability. The Blu-Ray player is very slow and I'm sure this is as ...

Not a owner but had to leave a comment

tony f., Newegg
17 November 2011
  • Summary: Did some of you people even read the specs? It clearly tells you what types of files it supports. Honestly, it is becoming horribly painful to see these people leave comments like, "It doesn't support ISO file types," when it never said it did in the first place.
  • Pros: sounds great but don't own one
  • Cons: can't think of any don't own one

Limited DVD Menu Support

Alexander T., Newegg
10 June 2011
  • Summary: Overall, I like it for watching Netflix on my TV using WiFi and I like the remote and navigation because it's similar to all my other Sony hardware. And, these are the ONLY reasons why I will probably keep this.
  • Pros: Familiar Sony remote navigation. Very nice Netflix rendering including the ability to search Netflix and add titles to your favorites queue.
  • Cons: Other than Netflix, the other online viewing content offerings are a joke including YouTube. It's terrible trying to use the YouTube search feature and you can't find videos you know are on YouTube. Sony tech support told me they use a different YouTube search client, hence the reason why there a...

Good but could be better

Darin A., Newegg
27 March 2011
  • Summary: The HULU interface was full featured if it matters to anyone.
  • Pros: DLNA, supported formats, remote is nice. Interface is very similar to ps3 and is generally well done.
  • Cons: Netflix interface is instant que only, does not support searching or anything but instant que - this was a deal breaker for me. I have several ROKUs that have a very nice netflix interface compared to the Sony.

A PS3 Without The Game Play Ability

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: Since this item may be discontinued one may be able to pick it up at a nice price. If you have a PS3 the menu will seem vary familiar to you. Here are some of the things I like about the SMP-N100: - Easy Network Setup - Built in 802.11n - Recognizes servers like Play-On without any extra work -...
