Finicky wireless connectivity with non-D-Link routers; lacks front-panel display and controls; doesn't display album artwork; not compatible with files purchased from iTunes Music Store; not Mac compatible.

It's one of the first digital media receivers capable of playing tracks purchased from online music stores, but the DSM-320's wireless performance left us wanting more.

Wired and wireless (802.11g). Low price. Internet radio support. Easy setup.

Some minor glitches remain.

The D-Link MediaLounge DSM-320 is an affordable digital media hub that has fixed some of its early kinks. But the competition is getting better, too.

In this day and age, a Home Theatre PC is becoming more and more standard. Let's face it though, most PC's make noise, and don't really blend in with your Entertainment Center. D-Link has a product in the market that fits these needs. I'm talking...

Sleek, slender design ; Plays back a myriad of formats ; Silent ; Full Function Remote

Wireless can disconnet and you must search for media server to connect ; Slow page loads when viewing thumbnailed photos ; Online media by subscription

Overall my experience with the DSM-320 was a good one. It does have a few quirks, but I've full confidence that they can be worked out with a firmware upgrade. I also have to give a bit of lee-way as the Media Server I am running falls just short of...

D-Link's DSM-320RD is a relatively simple mid-range media streamer. With the ability to connect to both wired and wireless networks, it doesn't boast ...

Not overly complex, relatively easy to use

No HDMI, some image noise in DVD playback, some compatibility problems with today's file types

A good player for newcomers to the media streamer scene, the DSM-320RD doesn't do anything special, but does do a respectable job of streaming video and audio.

Space efficient, plays music and displays photos well

Buggy software, difficult for a novice to set up, poor video playback

The D-Link is not yet suitable for the home entertainment buff who wants a plug-and-play device that will deliver streaming audio, pictures and video without fuss.

It's one of the first digital media receivers capable of playing tracks purchased from online music stores, but the DSM-320's wireless performance left us wanting more

Affordable ; Streams music, photos and video ; Compatible with DRM WMA files downloaded from online music stores ; Works with Windows Media Connect server ; Component-video output ; Optical and coaxial digital audio outputs

Finicky wireless connectivity with non-D-Link routers ; Lacks front-panel display and controls ; Doesn't display album artwork ; Not compatible with files purchased from iTunes Music Store ; Not Mac compatible

At its best, the DSM-320 is a world-class contender. At its worst, it's downright exasperating. Although the unit is highly affordable and has tonnes of cool features, we'd like to see it guaranteed to work with a wider selection of non-D-Link routers...

D-Link DSM-320RD Wireless Media Player

 

The DSM-320RD is a simple media streamer that's definitely a touch dated, but worthwhile if your needs are only very modest -- or if you need a spare DVD player.

Simple setup routine ; Embedded DVD player

May not fit in some more slender cabinets ; No HDMI/DVI

There's no doubt that there are newer and technically more polished and capable players on the market than the DSM-320RD. It's pretty clearly a unit that's best suited to streaming novices whose needs are small.

There has long been a gulf between the huge number of media files stored on PCs, and the home audio systems that could reproduce them with their deserved fidelity. The D-Link DSM-320RD, including a progressive scan DVD-player and a 5-in-1 Card Reader,...

A stylish media streaming device with good file support

Has good potential, but can occasionally be frustrating if watching movies
