Summary: This works great and does the job. All the services work as advertised but I would prefer a better user interface. It takes a lot of clicks to get a movie or show going. Plus, the on screen keyboard is terrible. Works well for DLNA.
Summary: i picked this up for $48 on amazon.com because i wanted a streaming solution for my nas device that could play the popular formats. i already have a (hacked) wii that can run netflix, and also stream avi and lower-resolution mp4 files to my main tv.
Summary: I have been using Sony unit for about a month now. I have Roku device for several years now as well as Apple unit. Each has limitations and I am yet to find a perfect unit. The good: 1. Price is awesome for the value 2. It is easy to setup 3.
Summary: I bought the streaming player - only problem is It wont show the subtitles (closed captions) on netflix content - unless you are watching a foreign movie. when I spoke to the sony representative - this is what they had to say -- The Sony Network Media Players does not support Line 21 data which is...
Summary: I got this for a bedroom as a roku alternative (I do have a roku in one room). For $50 it is a great HD streaming media player, had no issues hooking it up to my wireless network, connected to Amamzon VoD and it streamed beautifully. Highly recommended.
Summary: This media player is simple and to the point. It immediately recognized my DLNA servers on my computer and on my synology disk station with no problem. Played mkv avi m4v and everything else I could throw at it.
Almost perfect for my needs, but like all players has its pros and cons

Summary: While I do like the Sony SMPN200 unit and am very happy with it, I did list some Possible Show Stoppers at the bottom that are worth a quick read. These are some limitations of the product that result in some people returning it.
Perfect for my old Pioneer Projector HDTV (well, almost)!

Summary: Basically I have no choice because my more than ten year old TV doesn't have HMDI interface! I use component connection which only this box provides, the image quality is great (HDX or HD). Other reviews already mentioned how easy to set up, file format support, etc.
