Netgear EVA2000 Digital Entertainer Live review

 

Stream your media from your home PC to your LCD TV

Nice stylish design ; USB input ; VuNow is a welcome addition

Dodgy file format support ; HD refused to play ; Limited HDMI capability

Not really one for the true AV or HD enthusiast but will suit those who just want to watch the odd episode of South Park in the comfort of their living rooms
