Slingbox M1

With the addition of built-in WiFi and a $30 price cut, the M1 is a solid replacement for the Slingbox 350. While it does still have a higher upfront cost than competing products, it can also stream content that no other device can -- namely, live...

Apple TV (3rd Gen)

Released in March, Apple's third-generation puck ($100) retains the form factor of its predecessor while adding 1080p playback. The real draw remains the same, though: seamless integration with iTunes, iCloud, and the rest of the Apple ecosystem.

Google Nexus Player

The Nexus Player is a great, if imperfect, introductory showcase for Android TV. It doesn't have an Ethernet port and suffers from a few bugs, but Android TV's simple interface, intelligent voice search and Google Cast abilities more than make up for it.

Apple TV (2nd Gen)

Those who've already invested in iTunes content and Apple hardware will find the Apple TV to be an indispensable living-room companion, and it's an excellent streaming-video box for non-Apple folks as well.

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...

Apple TV (1st Gen)

If you’ve been waiting for 1080p, now’s the time to get an Apple TV, especially if you’re heavily invested in iTunes content and/or you want to beam your media from your Mac to your TV. But if your big-screen TV tops out at 720p, and you just want to...

Dune HD BASE 3D

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...

Popcorn Hour A-400

There are some things the Popcorn Hour does incredibly well - for example, picture quality. It's very good here and neglected on other media players and especially on laptops and the like. Plus, you get the power needed to play 3D or 1080p video...

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;...

Roku 2700

I've only had my Roku for 24 hours, and I am in love! My previous streaming device was a Samsung Blu-Ray player, which, for the majority of the time I owned it, was slow at downloading streaming videos, particularly from Hulu. I have literally waited...

Sauder Large Entertainment Center in Cinnamon Cherry

You definitely get what you paid for but for the price you cant go wrong. Just gotta be careful with it. The backboard slab came a bit damaged but not enough for us to send it back or complain. Hope this review helps.

WD WDBYMN0000NBK-HESN

I bought this as a second unit and was disappointed that Netflix support is withdrawn. I have bought the last 3 versions of WDTV and been happy with all of them. Sadly, I will be returning this one due to lack of Netflix support
