A really cool device !

 

Will use this one till D-link gets a few bugs out of these units,such as software,compatibility with wireless N and windows xp .....but having fun with it as for now !!

Bought this item after watching some videos on d-links website,But wanted to buy the DSM-750 unit first But it wasn't in stock,and the 750 didn't have a dvd or the 5 in 1 media reader,besides it needs Windows Vista as the main operating system,so I...

One problem I had was with the supplied software, had to switch to Tversity and update it's firmware then and only then did I start to enjoy it...another con is this unit is wireless G,but you can buy the wireless N unit if you are using Vista !! just...

Junk after 1 year

 

I used to love Dlink products. I will NEVER buy another Dlink product again, and will no longer recommend my company buy any of their products.

Worked quite well with audio and photos

Video was terrible - jerky, had to recode everything (what's the point?) ; After 1.5 years, the power supply died. Call to Dlink was very revealing: NO repair, NO parts are available for ANY product older than warranty (1 year). Customer Support said...

Pretty Cool - Dont upgrade Firmware

 

Awesome product when sued with tversity, dont install their media server, dont upgrade teh firmware when the annoying pop up prompts you.

when used with TVersity.com media server this thing plays everything. .ape, .flac, .mpc, just about any video or audio

Firmware update shut me down completely, had to RMA with DLINK. Their tech support sucked but they sent me out a new one pretty fast

This thing is cool

 

Connection using 802.11g on a Belkin Pre-N router, works without a hiccup. Before you listen to anyone who may tell you this product is a "total dessapointment" make sure you do your research. Luckily this is a UPnP compliant player, and thusly you...

For anyone having trouble playing certain file types or with videos skipping a lot, there is an alternate free media server called TVersity (rhymes with university). Using this, I am easily able to stream my diverse collection of media files, in any...

DLink's included media server is not very comprehensive, occasionally reboots at random while playing DVD's ; Remote control is sad. Hopefully I can program a universal remote for this player

Best bang for buck

 

All in all, for a device this early in the UPnP evolution, its right on - I would have got the DSM-320 because of the price, but I needed the DVD player too, and the memory card reader was a plus. I am running with teh TVersity media server, and have...

Does everything I want it too - mainly internet radio, personal mp3 library, and personl home video clips

Streaming video is a joke for the most part, network video is just OK

Consumer review by:

Good Network Media Player

 

Where do I start? Positives are progressive scan DVD player, media card reader, all video output types except HDMI, all audio output types and its also wireless. The only negative I have is it is very, very slow to start up for both DVD player and...

Works good

 

It does stream fast but its a little slow on the start up and a little slow to connect. I turn it on walk away for a minute then come back.

Consumer review by:

Better than the DSM-320

 

Same as the DSM-320 but with a DVD player and card reader. Overall this is a very good media player. However, it is a little slow to connect to a media server. Too bad D-Link doesnt have a network storage (NAS) device that will stream directly to the...

Consumer review by:

Only buy this if streaming video is NOT your main concern!

 

Plays MP3's and pictures pretty well.

Can't stream video worth a flip, upgrades and tech support are a joke!
