Conclusion Two years after Google launched Google TV, it still lags behind Apple and Roku's media hubs . The Sony Internet Player is an affordable and attractive upgrade over Sony's previous Google TV products, but it's still limited by Google TV's...

Samsung SMT-S7800

If, like me, you love technology (and raw fish) it's impossible not to like Japan, so the addition of the excellent NHK World channel to Freesat's meagre portfolio of HD channels is a welcome boost to the platform on its third birthday.

Avermedia Avertv

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)....

Netgear NeoTV 550

If you have a lot of media stores in your home network's devices, the Netgear NeoTV NTV550 can bring those files to your HDTV, but a too-high price, and a lack of features spoil the deal.

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.
