Slingmedia SB260 Slingbox SOLO

Never miss must-see TV with this well-priced, HD-compatible box. As long as you don't expect miracles in video quality when streaming over the Internet, the Slingbox SOLO is a pleasing buy.

Edision OS MINI DVB-T2/C

This box with a T2 receiver is a very bad idea. The Linux system is called Enigma2, it has a very poor sound driver for UK HD terrestrial channels, low volume and poor quality. It is not just a problem with this receiver, any Enigma2 receiver is the...

Philips NP3700

The rear panel is fairly sparse, but it has no real need for extensive connections. There’s an Ethernet port for those who don’t do wireless, a 3.5mm stereo line in (which Philips calls MP3 Link as it’s handy for MP3 players) and a port for the...

Technisat HDFV

The Technisat HDFV is undoubtedly one of the best Freeview HD boxes on the market, by virtue of its generous feature list. The inclusion of network media streaming, USB media playback, PVR functionality and optional Wi-Fi support puts it head and...

Viewsonic VMP74

Despite its titled emphasis on networking, the VMP74 doesn't offer Wi-Fi either, instead relying on an Ethernet port. However, you would have trouble streaming Full HD video files over Wi-Fi anyway, and wireless functionality can be added through a...

QNAP NMP-1000P

Review updated 27 Nov 2012 I've always wanted a media player that will stream my blu-rays and DVDs and this does it. It is easy to set up and the performance is fair. It will stream only some blu-rays with HD audio perfectly. The interface is clean and...

AC Ryan Playon!HD2

I've been an owner of the original AC Ryan PlayOn!HD for a while, so it was relatively easy for me to spot the differences/upgrades coming with the new PlayOn!HD2. First of all, what matters most not only to me, but also to many users out there, is the...

Canon M30 Media Storage

The unit doesn’t represent very good value, at over £300, Epson and Vosonic offer a better capacity-to-outlay ratio and wider support for other file formats.

This is a potentially good product--ruined by the poor HMI (Human Machine Interface-graphics), in particular the EPG--very difficult to read on a 47" TV from approx 18ft away. No such problem with my old Humax PVR-9200T --has the best graphics and HMI...

Xtreamer Prodigy

Despite more recent media players coming in smaller packages, the Xtreamer Prodigy Silver opts for a larger chassis to house your choice of an internal 3.5-inch hard disk drive, providing a lot of flexibility in terms of storage. Depending on where you...

Asus O!Play Gallery

It must be mentioned that the HD sound has only one format support—Dolby Digital, with no DTS HD sound decoding. An iPod dock would have been more appreciated than a cable as the iPod keeps dangling and the display is not always visible (it is not...

LG HR599D Twin HD Recorder / Blu-ray Disc Combo

The LG HR599D Twin HD Recorder / Blu-ray Disc Combo is a good option for watching Blu-ray movies and recording TV shows in high-definition. On the downside, its editing capabilities are quite limited.

This is not a review as such but a word of warning. The product here is quite good but certainly not perfect in many ways. However further testing and learning make it a better choice of media player than most other brands unless you are technically...

Smart Zappix HD+

What a brilliant idea for anyone who hates calling customer service! It provides a visual menu - choose where you want to call and the app dials for you! If you don't want to call you can get a link to the mobile website and get service or information.

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...
