D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

This streaming-media player is long on potential but short on execution.

Lets you stream content directly from the Internet ; Video quality is very good

Installation is tricky ; DivX content is hard to find

The makers still say that the device will debut in the United States before the end of June at a price of less than $300. But I would have a very hard time recommending it to anybody until its content and distribution issues work out

DLink DSM 330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

Since its inception as a bit of a pirate codec, DivX has come along in leaps and bounds, and matured very nicely to the point it is now well respected. Indeed, DivX HD has garnered much praise as a vehicle for Internet-based video with much less...

D-Link's latest streaming media player, the DSM-330, differs from its predecessor the DSM-320 with the addition of DivX codec support. The device exce...

Easy setup, range of outputs, good file support, great interface

Struggles to play 720p content over wireless

D-Link's DSM-330 is a product that excels at streaming media over a wired network, but struggles a bit with the combination of wireless connection and high-definition video.

D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player review

 

Getting media from your computer to your television is now big business as more and more companies stray into the arena. The latest is DivX, but can it offer to meet your home cinema needs? We get streaming to find out. If you are looking for an...

Plug-ins, quick, easy to use, plenty of features

No hard drive, PC needs to be on all the time

If you are a fan of the DivX format then having a media streamer offering you DivX in your living room will be a no brainer

D-Link DSM-330

 

DivX and web content directly to your TV sounds great but has D-Link got it right with the D-Link DSM-330?

And if this doesn't bother you, the implementation of the DivX service on the DSM330 may well do. The second major problem with the DSM-330 is that you can only browse through video content - you can't search by keyword as you can on the main website,...

D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

We used an HDMI cable to connect the D-Link DSM-330 to a 50in Pioneer plasma HDTV. Other connection options, such as S-Video and composite, are available too.

The DSM-330 product will live on, but the "DivX Connected" part of the name hardly fits anymore. Without Stage6, at least for now, it's just another streaming-media box, and not a particularly special one. It's a simple, straightforward streamer that...

D-Link DSM-330 review

 

The D-Link DSM-330 wireless media streamer is a good idea that with firmware updates or future revisions has the potential to get a lot better. It's only a shame there isn't great file support

Simplicity ; Cost ; Menu system ; Ease of use ; Picture quality ; Sound quality

Limited file support ; Flaky at times

You could get an Xbox 360 and use it as a media centre extender, but that solution won't work for everyone, and can be somewhat complicated to get working properly. If you want a media streamer at this price, you'll struggle to find much better

D-Link DSM330 – DivX Connected

 

I've tested a few wireless media extenders during my time at PCW, and I always seem to be hit with the same problems; stuttering, dropped connections and codec problems. Imagine my surprise, then, when after weeks with the DivX Connected box I...

Out of the box, the DSM330 looks rather unassuming, about the size of a box of chocolates. It has one antenna at the back, neighboured by HDMI, coaxial, optical, S-video, composite AV, SCART and LAN ports. In other words, you can connect this puppy up...
