Patriot Box Office

With a street price of $100, the Box Office is competitively priced at the low end of the media-streamer spectrum. It won’t replace higher-priced alternatives, but its unique features and robust operation make it more than just a budget box.

Netgear PTV3000 PUSH2TV

For something so small, makes a big difference. Bought it for my Kindle HDX, watching films and viewing photos etc. A great bit of kit.

Iomega ScreenPlay DX HD

For long, the WD Live Hub has been the undisputed king of the HD media player world, with built-in storage capacity. However, the Iomega ScreenPlay DX is a very solid alternative. With 1TB internal storage, good-looking design, a unique yet completely...

Samsung GX-SM530CF

This box does what it was designed to do. It is a cable box with streaming media capability. The interactive on-screen program guide is nice. It will not support on-demand functions. Samsung should market it more as a cable box replacement rather than...

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...

NETGEAR Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000

Like MediaGate’s product, the EVA8000 can act as a USB host, but its port is conveniently located right up front. And unlike the MG-350HD, Netgear’s box can stream digital photos and digital music at the same time (it loaded images much faster, too)....

Philips HMP2000

There's plenty to like about the Philips HMP2000: setup is straightforward, navigation is user-friendly, and it does what it promises without fuss. The potentially limiting factor is how onboard you are with streaming services, since if you harbor...

LG HR599D

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.

Prepac Oak Triple Width Wall Media (DVD,CD,Games) Storage Rack

I love this! I don't know why others seem to have a problem with it on balance, but for me it's wonderful! I may order another one. It doesn't tip at all. It's nice to look at too. My dvd's and tapes too fit perfectly. I'd advise anyone to order it....

HTC DG H200

The HTC Media Link HD is a lot of fun for certain things. Business users might find it useful to show video, presentations or websites when they're out and about. It's tiny, and you can plug it in to anything with HDMI, so for that it's ideal.

Poundex 5-Tier Glass Top Media Shelf, Chocolate

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...

Epson P-5000

The Epson P-5000 is both a forward leap in terms of functionality and speed, and perhaps a backwards step for some photographers in terms of the overall design. The P-5000 is much quicker than the older P-4000 model. The transfer speed from memory card...

Eminent EM7080

Take the optical disk drive out of a recent Blu-ray player and replace it with an HDD compartment. Squeeze the result into a glossy black box with roughly the same dimensions as a Mac Mini (complete with the external power supply) and you have the...

D-Link DSM-330

The makers still say that the device will debut in the United States before the end of June at a price of less than $300. But I would have a very hard time recommending it to anybody until its content and distribution issues work out

Popcorn Hour A-300

I've had two popcorn hours, the C-200 and now the A-300. The video quality of this was 3 years ago superior to any other mediabox device, which I think made these boxes very popular. At the time I compared several products side by side and the...

TiVo Stream

Just as advertised, however, sadly out of home streaming only supports copyright free channels deemed by your provider. I love it though, frees my tivo box up while I'm out.

I bought this to avoid having to pay Charter cable $7.00 a month to rent one of their cable box's. Instead I pay $2.00 a month for a cable card, saving $5.00 a month. So, it will take me a little over 2 years to break even but in the meantime I have a...
