This review is from: NETGEAR NTV200-100NAS NeoTV Streaming Player
Pros: Great price.
small in a positive way.
so far anything I have tried, runs SMOOTHLY.
great quality (1080P)
I personally enjoy having the fiber out without having the need to keep the tv on just for sound or bypass sound thru tv for the stereo.
works with any monitor that also has hdmi (not just TVs)
the quality of netgear has also been implemented on this streaming box just like they usually do with routers.
not a single lock up or freeze from anything i have tried...
you can use a tablet/phone to send videos to the tv just like you would with chomecast.
Cons: no local network play via upnp or dlna.
(even though with a simple firmware upgrade or adding the feature with a channel on the list would make it work flawlessly) I really hope netgear does this....
if you loose the remote (btw it is NOT a cheaply built remote) you cannot power on the box, but you could use a replacement or any other netgear streaming remote meant for another model box, on this one.
Other Thoughts: I have no idea why people have issues with this model. either people are id*ots or plain just don't pay attention to properly use an item.
if you expect certain features on an inexpensive model that is meant for a more expensive one, that does not mean this model box sucks or have "issues".
if you can deal (so far) without being able to play local files. this will do you well...
