Summary: I purchased Sony Player after owning a ROKU box and Cutting the CABLE. In my opinion the Sony is a much better product than Roku. In addition to streaming Netflix, Hulu and whatever else, the Sony also plays video files off my PC via my wireless network, AMAZING.
Summary: I was not looking for a high end device with a ton of features - really just wanted to have something to allow us to watch Netflix on a TV in another room (rather than just on our Wii or a laptop).
Summary: I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my husband and was blown away by all of its features. In fact, we may eventually give up cable and subscribe to online media publications making it more affordable to view television programming. Comcast, watch out.............
Summary: The product works great and the video downstreaming is great quality!! The only problem was getting setup as the instructions were not clear you had to have a code for this unit to input to Netflex to get the unit to work!!
Excellent device at a great price - ideal value for the money

Summary: I've had my streamer for a few weeks now and I am very happy with it. I have had no issues with it losing its Internet connection like other people have commented (perhaps their wifi routers are not fast enough?). It offers smooth playback, never stutters.
Summary: For about a year now, my dad has wanted a Roku Box because he wanted to use Pandora, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and other basic media streaming apps. This christmas, my sisters and I got together and discussed what we should get him.
Summary: I just got my SMP-N100. I was shopping around and originally was going to get a roku and an HDMI to component video converter. I bought my 47" Panasonic rear projection back in the early 2000's. It was High-Def ready. Since HDMI was not around back then it had the state of the art inputs..
Summary: This sony player is just what I needed to complete my new LED TV system. Very easy to setup. Don't forget to first install the updates before anything else. All apps work great! Even the DLNA works gr8.
Summary: I did all sorts of research which landed me on this box and I am very satisfied and often impressed with its operation. Good- Plays everything through the front Media Port via USB. Expected streaming - Netflix, Hulu, Youtube all there and works. DNLA compliant.
