Google Chromecast

There are tons of ways to watch online content on your HDTV. Your media hub, your game console, your Blu-ray player—even your HDTV itself might be able to access YouTube and Netflix. The Google Chromecast is an alternative to all of the above. It's a...

Kingston MobileLite Wireless

However, most of these shortcomings can be overlooked due to the price of $70 - less than half of what wireless drives cost. So the Kingston MobileLite Wireless can be recommended at least for what it primarily delivers, a good overall multi-user...

Streamers have been around for quite a few years. It took them quite a while to reach maturity. When this field was at its infancy, HD was just starting to get popular and Streamers offered a way to play back a DIVX or TS file without requiring a Home...

Philips HMP7001

Media player boxes have become popular in the recent years. The market is dominated by Apple, Boxee, Western Digital and Roku but Philips wants to get in on the act. Last year, Philips released HMP5000 but it never proved very successful so Philips...

Sonax E-0062-BF Fiji 60-Inch TV Component Bench, Ravenwood Black

It went together pretty well with few tools. The back is cardboard but the price was good. The door hinges and supports did not hold up under the assault of a 19 month old, but they go on very easy. All in all we are well satisfied with the purchase.

Sonax CR-2420 Cruise 25-Inch Wide Midnight Black Component Stand

The product arrived intact and well protected in its packaging (almost too well - the box seemed to be glued entirely shut; I had to cut it open) Quality aluminum supports, the glass and particleboard pieces are all beveled. The instructions were okay;...

Homelegance 4726BK Adjustable Game Chair

I give them a five star because you can't beat the way the look and feel for the price. We looked a lot on the internet for something to put in our play room to sit on to watch our 11 month twins. They fit perfect and I wasn't worried about my twins...

Roku R01-2000

I would have bought the wifi model but the TV I bought it for only has RCA jacks. It's well worth it to be able to stream cartoons in the spare room for the kids by day and tv shows for the old ladies by night. YOU DO NEED A CREDIT CARD TO OPEN A ROKU...

PREPAC - Double-Width Library-Style Media Shelf - Cherry and black CMA-0640

This is a great shelf for the price. Holds my media well, neat and close up to the wall. But I did not do a good job of counting my cases before I ordered and could have done well with an extra three shelves. Just a note if you are looking to get this...

Sauder Large Entertainment Center in Cinnamon Cherry

I was not sure how big of a TV I could put on this based on the other reviews. I just installed a 60" Samsung on it and it fits fine. Some of the upper shelves are a little blocked but that is O.K. with me.The place where the TV sets is farther out...

Prepac Oak Slim Media (DVD,CD,Games) Storage Tower

I undertook to assemble this myself, even though I am an elderly lady. I knew it would take some time and energy, but I wish the many nails needed to attach the back would have been accompanied by pre-drilled holes. That was a little more than I had...

Popcorn Hour A-400

At £270, the Popcorn Hour A-400 won’t make a lot of sense tomost buyers, but it is a well-made little box that deserves a look if your oldbox has packed it in. What do you think? Are the days of these dedicated mediaplayers numbered?

Atlantic 78205091 Media Folding Rack 153 CD or 72 DVD P2

This product serves it's function. It's not especially sturdy, nor flimsy either. It's a little on the short side, but this probably makes it more stable. It does keep my media neatly stored and in reach.

Prepac Black Slim Barrister Media (DVD,CD,Games) Storage Rack

This holds all of our dvd's and bluray's. Our only issue is how thin the back is, but it looks very nice in our living room. We did have to go in with some paint because the undersides are not finished, but for the price, it is a nice bookshelf....

Sonax CR-2360 Cranley 21-Inch Wide Midnight Black Enclosed Component Stand

The unit was straightforward to assemble and seems to be quite sturdy and attractive. My only objection is that it is to narrow for my old receiver. I have to remove the glass doors to pull it out to make any wiring changes at the back. Not something...

True, the assembly instructions were a challenge. Fortunately, adhering to the sequence of drawings, while comparing them (carefully) to the actual pieces which we laid out on the floor, eventually made it quite clear what went where and when. It took...
