Sony SA-NS500

While we may be a little partial here at ABI to some great sounding headphones paired with a clean sounding DAP on the go, there are surely those times when you just want to share your tunes with everyone around you. Those of us that don't venture into...

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

Western Digital WD TV Live Plus

If you have a PC running Windows 7, you can use Microsoft’s Play To feature to “send†media from your PC to the WD TV Live Plus. Simply add songs or videos to the Windows Media Player 12 playlist, click the Play To button, and choose the WD TV...

Samsung Smart Media Player

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...

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...

WD TV Play

We suppose $70 is the right price for the WD TV Play, since it delivers 1080p video resolution plus the USB and Ethernet ports that the Roku 2 lacks for $10 less (Roku has two players with even lower price tags, but they’re both limited to 720p and are...

The QNAP NMP-1000 is a snappy, feature-packed network multimedia player with NAS functionality. We spend some time with it to see if it's any good.

Vantage Point AXWG-01B Glass Component Shelf - Black for AXWG-03B

This shelf installs pretty easily (two big lag screws into a stud) and is secure enough for most purposes. I like the finish on the glass. The bracket that holds the shelf to the main support requires screws with nuts and the placement of the screw...

Sauder Edge Water Panel TV Stand in Estate Black

This arrived on time with no damage, even though the box was a bit scuffed up. It's a really nice piece, seems very well made, and assembled fairly easily. Would buy an item from this manufacturer again without hesitation!

Prepac Black Large Capacity Wall Media Storage Rack

No doubt its a nice set but if your going to rely on the instructions ( well unless you have experience in carpentry or putting furniture together) it will be a challenge. I didn't feel the instructions were detailed enough, I had to unscrew parts many...

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...

Sonos Wireless Dock WD100

Setup is a cinch. Just plug the dock into a free power outlet; dock an iPod or iPhone; use the Add A Sonos Component option from any Sonos controller (the Sonos Desktop Controller software, one of Sonos' hardware controllers, or a Sonos iOS app); press...

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.
