NETGEAR NTV200-100NAS NeoTV Streaming Player

3 out of 5 eggs Works Exactly as Advertised 09/26/2012

This review is from: NETGEAR NTV200-100NAS NeoTV Streaming Player

Pros: Device was unpackaged and hooked up within 1 minute using nothing but the power cord and an HDMI cable (not included). Device powered up, quick setup was a breeze. Device found my wireless network, connected, and found an update available. Applied update and explored device.

*Simple, Fast Setup
*1080p Streaming across my wireless network
*Multiple channels available on the device
*Auto-turn off in case I forget and leave it on

Cons: Device did not fulfill my minimum expectation of such a device.

Device has no method of accessing any network media.

Loses 2 stars for lacking basics by today's standards.
*No web browser.
*Unable to access my music/movies/pictures from my computer/NAS.

Other Thoughts: I can understand a manufacturer not wanting to include that the device is meant to be stand-alone on my network, but it's 1012. Everything is connected to everything for no reason what-so-ever. I can send a picture from my phone to my printer from 200 miles away. I would expect that a "Media Player" that has "network capability" to have the ability to play Media from my Network by premise alone. Caveat Emptor. I will eat the loss and hope that Netgear adds the most basic of basic functionality.
