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.

This media streamer is a bit slow off the blocks

Viiv friendly

Poor menu system

Netgear EVA700 Digital Entertainer review

 

There are many ways to get around the problem of shifting all that media content you have downloaded, totally legally of course, from your bedroom PC to the living room telly. A big cable trailing along the floor is perhaps the least appealing...

Aesthetics, simple setup, front mounted USB port for portable media playback

No HDMI connector, user interface rough around the edges, HD video playback jerky

Easy wireless streaming of media content from your PC to your TV

Media streaming isn't anything new, but the largest networking manufacturers seem intent on reinventing the wheel in the quest for the perfect digital home experience. This Netgear box adds something else to the mix

600dpi, 16 seconds start-up time, optional DU-301 duplex unit, Intel Viiv compliant, SCART, S-Video and composite

16ppm (12ppm tested), Set up difficulties

If you can manage to get it set up properly, the EVA700 works well

Netgear's EVA700 is one of the burgeoning range of media streamers available on the market. These take multimedia files from your computer and output ...

Size, 4in screen, Music and video playback, User interface, Good volume levels, Competitive price

Chunky and heavy, Entertainment offering lacks features, Somewhat slow to pick up a GPS signal, Large and bulky window mount, Poor battery life, No external volume control

The Netgear EVA700 is easy to use, simple to set up and supports a good range of file formats. If there's a future firmware release that can fix its problems then Netgear will be on to a winner.

Netgear's EVA700 digital entertainment adapter, announced back in the summer, has finally hit the shelves.

The Netgear EVA700 is ideal for streaming video around the house, and proved easy to set up and use. It has some rough edges, but nothing that a firmware update or two can't fix.

Netgear EVA700 Digital Entertainer

 

The first Viiv-certified media extender shows much promise for those looking to share multimedia content around the home.

Extremely easy to install and configure ; Plays files direct from USB devices ; All major audio/video formats supported ; Both wired and wireless connectivity ; WEP and WPA wireless security supported ; Intel Viiv-certified

No HDMI connector ; Lacks an LCD display for status and file information ; User interface could be improved

The EVA700 offers everything we love about Zensonic's Z500 digital media extender -- such as extensive format support and connectivity options -- and also manages to rectify many of its flaws such as the lack of WPA security and unintuitive...

The appealing price and form factor can't hide some serious usability issues, but there's a good system underneath.
