Summary: Sony's SMP-N200 streaming-media box packs a lot of functionality, but it's hampered by a subpar user interface.
Pros: Sony's SMP-N200 streaming-media box supports Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, Vudu, and Pandora. It's also DLNA-compliant, so it can stream media from your home network, including Xvid and MKV files. The external design is also considerably improved over last year's, especially the new simple remote.
Cons: The user interface is poorly designed for a streaming-media box, especially when browsing movies via cover art that is too small to read. Cover art isn't supported at all when browsing music on your home network. The video search doesn't hit any of the services you want, and the included browser is frustrating to use.
