This review is from: D-Link DSM-380 Boxee Box HD Media Player
Pros: Nice user interface. Great design. This thing is like a little black rubix cube sitting on its corner. Looks sleak. Built in Wifi works great.
Great remote. Full keyboard on the back is worth so much!
It plays any files you can throw at it. It displays artwork etc. Its great for streaming you DVD collection wirelessly. I'm streaming Video TS (Mpeg2) at DVD quality, and its great! I love this thing, and will likely by another one for the bedroom.
Cons: Its more expensive than some of the others... FOR A REASON. I bought another brands junk attempt at this device and it sucked more than words can describe. Constant crashes, awful interface, terrible streaming. I returned it and got this for more money, and its worth every penny.
Other Thoughts: Update firmware as soon as you get it. To make sure your shares work, on your windows machine right click, Share, Advanced, Add, Everyone. This thing wont join the homegroup, so you need to share with everyone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrader with Web Browsing
Pros: Its small. Nice package. Built in Wifi that was no probs to set up. Was online in seconds with a great signal. I was looking for an alternative to a HTPC, with Netflix. I never usually buy things that no-one else has reviewed, but I had such high hopes... This tech is evolving fast so I hoped the latest thing might be the greatest...
Cons: Incredibly slow browsing. Every menu selection takes 5 to 10 seconds. It wouldnt stream anything from my PC. Tried from Media Player, homegroup or PS3 media server. Locked up.
Cycled power. It updates firmware so I'm encouraged... Took about 1 hour to go from 7.79.102 to 8.79.118!! Tried playing simple music files and it was slow but it worked! Low quality mpegs took about 20 seconds to start then it would play fine but the remote was unresponsive. Tried streaming DVD rip (Video TS) and it freezes up. Doesnt show movie art either. It froze up all the time. After a single evening I am done.
Other Thoughts: Newegg rocks. No doubt the RMA will be a breeze. What a shame this product was so poor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful. Lovely screen and case. Looks more classy that it does in the pics. I notice no back light bleed at all. No dead pixels. Bright. Crisp display.
Did my research. This seems to be the best out there right now. Its the monitor that Nvidia actually advertise if you buy a 3d vision bundle from them. Clearly they think its decent too.
Cons: The 3d vision glasses kit is so expensive. That will have to wait...
Other Thoughts: This was a great priced monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
