Summary: Junk DO NOT BUY, received from Amazon in two days with superb service however the Sidewinder 2 is junk, can't install apps on it or even get it to update firmware auto or manually, extremely difficult to setup, bought it as a Christmas gift and instead sending it back.
Summary: I have both Sidewinder and Sidewinder 2 both work very well, I would say Sidewinder 2 is definitely full of welcome improvements. The interface is much better then older version but like any group-ware product there are still some minor bugs, but all-in all its a great product for the price and...
Summary: I've bought this product as it was released to the market. I had high expectation after reading the spec. I was highly disappointed. * The streamer should be able to surf the web. This function is useless. most of the sites have compatibility problems and I practically could not surf any site.
Summary: I couldn't care less from all the "nice" features they claim to have, like web, android, bla bla. I only wanted to have another device to which I can backup my homepc movies/pictures and see 720/1080 movies.
Summary: All that they promise and so much they just can't deliver. Thought this would be a perfect companion to my new 32" Vizio but it is almost completely useless. If they actually HAD any customer support, it would be terrible, but you won't get a reply.
Not techical? Need Costumer Support? Need coherent directions? If you answer 'Yes' to any of these then DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Summary: Wow, where do I begin.... So I got this as a gift but its been nothing but a curse. I plugged all wires into the correct spot, I hooked it up to my external USB drive (btw, it does not come with an HDD...WTF?) and hooked it up via my HDMI cord (no cord as well!) to the HD side of my TV.
Summary: OK Let me start off by saying that i currently own this and the Xtreamer 1. THe Xtreamer 1 had issues playing 1080p mkv files and did not play any HD audio. It would always lockup during playback.

Summary: CONS: the PGUP and PGDN button can NOT move next/previous chapter when playing a DVD (Video_TS or ISO) file. Xtreamer Tech Support says its Realtek Chipset does not provide the function, not thing Xtreamer can do.
