Netgear EVA9150 media streamer review

 

Despite the digital media boom there are still precious few streamers and jukeboxes around that do a decent job of handling the array of digital content that might populate the modern home. We've seen a few commendable efforts so far, but very few...

Excellent performance and media support, access to online content, easy to configure and use, range of extra features

Minor issues with the interface, no USB-host connection, very expensive

For those serious about sharing media collections around the home and viewing video online, this is the most effective solution we’ve seen to date, if you can afford it

Good - But Not Perfect.

 

I have had no problems with anything I have tried to play media wise, iso's, mkv's, avi's... all without a hiccup. Was a bit annoying to get photo's to slideshow when played from a digital camera plugged directly into the USB port... but I don't think...

Will play just about anything thrown at it. Blends with other equipment, Polished GUI (Not perfect, but aesthetically pleasing)

Headache with Windows 7. Internet Apps Lacking - No YouTube, NetFlix Support and will never get due to no more updates. PS3 does everything this does except ISOs and mkv's (But I just convert mkv's into a compatible format)

Worthless

 

This platform had a lot of potential. Decent CPU, onboard SATA, upgradable firmware and 802.11n. If someone were to ever develop a replacement firmware, it would be a great unit to own. As it stands, I've switched back to my old WDTV and have been much...

Wireless N, Built-In Hard Drive, Nice Remote

It does play most videos, however, it doesn't fully support most compression formats. Video/Audio sync issues especially common when using FF/RW. Picture quality is grainy. Filesharing with Windows 7 requires a firmware update to a beta (unsupported)...

Yep

 

Netgear is no longer releasing firmware updates so product is essentially dead from that aspect. Features that are supposed to work, do not. No future releases have been mentioned. Last FW update was last year.

Does most of what it is supposed to do

Don't expect internet features that are stellar. Lots of reboots. GUI is poor

Not what I Needed

 

A Cheap PC with a TV tuner and hard disc would work better for what I need.

Not sure, did not do what I needed so I did not spend time learning more about it

I bought this product hoping it would have internet connectivity and work well as an internet and media server. It may work well as a media server but as an internet device it is pretty useless

Media Player of the Year

 

Good product I have recommended it to several people who went out and purchased. Have it paired up with ReadyNas Pro as well and enjoy being able to watch movies , listen to music and yes it even does Youtube and a few others directly from the internet.

Excellent Product and Contrary to the other owner it does do ISO images as well as Blu Ray images and all other formats basically thrown at it. Also has a removable 3.5 hard drive installed as well

Interface needs work

Consumer review by:

All Around Media Box

 

The best on the market right now, bar none.

Plays nearly anything you can throw at it. Good community support (ex. Vid2Eva Transcoding Tool) easy to integrate into home network. Native YouTube support is cool, too. Hard drive upgradability is outstanding. Wireless N support is sufficient for...

Interface doesn't stand up to the flash and smoothness of the XBox 360 or PS3's. Music support is good, but not great

Consumer review by:

Most feature rich media player

 

This is a big step forward from EVA8000.

This box supports the most formats of any other player, by far, including full-bandwidth (40Mbps) blu ray backups. It also plays streaming video from youtube and other sites (including HD videos) without relying on any computer. 802.11n is included...

The list of supported hard drives is small - be sure to check before upgrading. A bit expensive (but IMHO well worth the money)
