APEVIA ATX-AQ700W-BK 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works well. Has worked for 4.5 years in two separate home built rigs. Now powers a 4670K Haswell processor on a Gigabyte motherboard. Has blue lights if you like that sort of thing.

Ps it's also quiet (I discovered that recently :). With the new mobo I don't need a separate video card with its own cooling fans. Wow. Does that ever make a noise difference.

Cons: It's worked for four and a half years. How can I possibly complain?

4 out of 5 eggs No Apple TV, but, not bad either 02/02/2011

This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ USB 2.0 / Ethernet HD Media Player Only STCEA201-RK

Pros: 1080p video. Looks really, really sharp with the right video files.

Can stream video over a network from Mac OS X or Windows when connected with an ethernet cable.

A decent selection of third party web services (radio, YouTube, NetFlix).

Cons: It's not as easy to configure as Apple TV.

No built-in wireless connectivity. Requires an adapter that'll turn wireless into ethernet if you want wireless connectivity (which I have which is why I got it).

Setting Windows up to stream video can be VERY frustrating.

I'm still not sure how I got it streaming in Windows 7. I logged in to the admin account (I don't work in an admin account) and shared the video folder I wanted to share using that. Sharing it from within the regular account but with admin authentication did not work. I had to be logged into the admin account.

Anyway, your mileage will vary. I still recommend it fairly strongly but it's not as much a slam dunk as say the Apple TV (though, the Apple TV has a different job in our house than the FreeAgent).

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried connecting a hard drive or a USB memory key to the device to play video. Am sure it'll work.
