5 out of 5 eggsSilent Xbox Alternative

Pros: High build quality, silent, small footprint. Seamless WMC integration. Setup took 2 minutes. Smooth, fast operation with right host PC. HDMI. Flawless, very high video quality with wired connection. Works great with WMC in Windows 7. CAN stream Netflix (see below).

Cons: Cheap feeling remote. Not natively DLNA-compatable. Discontinued Linksys support - future firmware updates unlikely. Blue LED could annoy in low lighting. Price is now borderline value.

Other Thoughts: This is a small, quiet alternative to an Xbox extender for those who don't game. The computing power of the host server has a big impact on its speed. It CAN stream Netflix and other premium net content through WMC with vmcPlayIt or tubecore and PlayOn (either of the first two bring DLNA functions to WMC). The reason extenders can't stream Netflix is Silverlight and MSFT selling Xbox subscriptions, not the devices. This Linksys running WMC with a DLNA server app/plugin is a big upgrade over a MediaMVP/gb-pvr setup.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Everything runs as advertised.

Cons: I was a little disappointed that Netflix doesn't work with this extender ever since Netflix starting using Silverlight. I hope Linksys has a update for this, but from what I heard, they aren't anytime soon.

Other Thoughts: You can buy the arcade Xbox 360 for $50 more, and can use Netflix, media center, and play a ton of nice games. If Netflix isn't a priority....this thing is great.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

Pros: This is a great device. It works perfectly with Windows 7. The difference between this and XBox 360 is the noise level. I bought this for the bedroom where noise coming out of XBox 360 would be unbearable.

Cons: It is slow to boot, but thats an easy fix, just don't shut it off. Wireless is not great until you go Draft n 5MHz, otherwise it interferes with Microwave.

Other Thoughts: Over all, a good device, I would recommend powerline adapters for better performance if your house is not wired with ethernet.

4 out of 5 eggsGood substiute for a xbox360

Pros: Great device works with Windows 7 and Vista Media center. with windows 7 you can now view AVI files too.

Cons: Slow to boot up (like 25-35 seconds) At this price you might as well get a xbox. I found mine a while back for under a 100 and I would not pay any more than that before purchasing an xbox360 instead.

Other Thoughts: No new updates in the last 6 month, one of the slow boot issue is because it checks for updates on boot up. make sure your DNS is right or you might have issues where it fails to start. for 160 you can get a xbox360 no hard drive to do the same thing and it is 10 times faster - minus the wireless. But then I try to hard wire everything anyways.
