Summary: I have to say that I'm very happy with this product. I have recommended it to many people and they haven't had any issues. The set up is very simple. I use it with an HDMI on one TV and the old style red/white/yellow cable on another TV. There is one aspect that is ridiculous - the search feature is a frustrating waste of time. Go to Netflix or Amazon Instant Video or Hulu and search there.
Summary: This is the best streamer for your TV bar none. I have all the streamers: ROKU, Apple TV latest, PS3, Sony Bluray Wifi player. Quick notes (I'm at work). The Sony Media Player plays everything thru the DLNA through your shared Windows Media Player folders. EVERYTHING. Also, it plays mkv's through the USB. Has the best Youtube app (if you Youtube) and has Amazon Instant Video and Crackle. Plenty of media for people who watch those last 3 items. Plus, add your own videos.
Summary: Great product! Works very well! Does exactly what it claims! If you are lookung for trouble free streaming, you won't go wrong with this Sony Streaming Player! Enjoy! The Sony SMP-N100 Streaming Player with Wi-Fi!
Summary: Sometimes re-running coax cable throughout a house can be a real problem. Renting another cable box can also add up for those TV's that aren't used all the time. One solution is this Sony Streaming Video Player and an off the air HDTV Antenna (as long as you have braodband access in your home). Now we can watch movies from Netflix and get local programming off the air.
Summary: I bought this for my parents who are in love with netflix. The set up is fast and easy to use. The only downside is the netflix interface movie thumbnails are really hard to make out especially if you have an older t.v.
Summary: Bought this as an add on for the bedroom TV. I just got an Amazon Prime account and enjoy all the new content, however the TV in the bedroom is NOT a smart TV and so a network streamer seemed to be a good choice. I am very pleased with this SONY product and give it a 5-star endorsement. It is simple to hook up and set up right out of the box.
Summary: I bought this unit to access my Amazon Prime content and I am more than satisfied. Reasonably priced and easy to set up and use. Once you learn to navigate the system it becomes second nature.
Summary: I was looking for an alternative to expensive satellite TV without sacrificing choices. This machine operates simply and almost flawlessly on all the streaming options I've tried. So far, I've used Amazon Prime, HuluPlus, and Netflix (all on free trials). I'll probably stay with Netflix for the variety of shows and movies available without extra cost. I'm afraid I've gotten hooked on "24," a series I never watched before. So far, I'm on season 3.
