Review: Netgear Digital Entertainer EVA700


The Netgear Digital EntertainerEVA700 (and EVA8000) are Netgear‘s entries into the networked multimedia device category, essentially bringing the content on your computer network into your traditional audio/video entertainment center. I had high hopes...

Even at it’s relatively low price, it’s not worth the aggravation that you'll have to endure in using its slow GUI that also needs quite a bit of usability improvements.

To latch onto Intel Viiv technology, here's the new Netgear EVA700 digital entertainer that offers both wired and wireless streaming of media content.

You MUST have a VIIV Certified Router


They won't tell you and it is not written anywhere. But in order to make this work the way it is advertised, you need a router that is VIIV certified. MOST are not. Most wireless are NOT. Yet, this is a wireless product. In most cases, do not buy this!...

Well- I guess easy to install- but I could never get it to work!

Menu is horrible- no way to search by letter, you must go thru everything.

Consumer review by:

Great Buy


Does everything I expected and at a good price. Was able to get it to run on Vista and also did not interfere with my LCD tv.

Navigation could be better.

Consumer review by:

Needs some improvement


WILL NOT save wireless settings after being powered off for a while.

Consumer review by:

Not an ideal out-of-the-box solution


Works with multiple video (mpeg1, 2, 4, wmv etc) and audio (mp3, ogg, wma, aac, etc) formats.

Lacks HDMI.

Consumer review by:

Terrible product


Sleek case design, I guess.

A headache from day 1.

This product does not work well with displaying JPEGs if you have Windows Media Player 11 installed on your computer.
