Summary: It’s worth noting that anyone with a Wii or PS3 console will already have access to most of what is on offer here. While the lack of built in Wi-Fi support may keep the price of this diminutive media streamer down, it could prove a deal breaker for all but those with a router very nearby their television sets.
Conclusion: Fancy a “connected TV” without buying a new telly? A lack of integrated Wi-Fi is troubling and could limit the appeal of the DPS-1000, but it’s almost the only blindspot on this otherwise impressive streamer-cum-online content hub; the breadth of the content and the quality of the user interface are both excellent. Those without a “connected” TV, a PlayStation 3 or Wii that are desperate to get BBC iPlayer and/or Lovefilm streaming on their telly should look no further.
Pros: Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer, speedy interface
Cons: Wi-Fi only via dongle, fiddly remote control
