despite issues, it's great for wireless video streaming

 

I've been using DSM-510 for almost 2 years now and I can say It's a great product. It has issues - especially with wireless streaming - but those are workable and not too bad when you figure how to fix them for the first time. Overall, it's been...

wireless or wired video streaming from your PC to a TV, MP4

there are bugs, needs a reboot once in a while with wireless, OK with wired

Excellent solution to stream media to up to a 720p HDTV

 

Do not give up if the device does not set up or perform properly immediately. People put down technical support but if you give a good hour of your time to these guys, they will make sure things are setup to perform optimally, believe me this is from...

Form factor, form factor, form factor. This device is half the size of a Nintendo Wii, it fits perfectly into any environment around your HDTV. Streams fast and reliably with the right router/network setup. D-link Tech Support WILL HELP YOU

People must be aware that the device is limited to 1080i output, which is not useful to inidividuals expecting Full 1080p output on their HDTV's. A good 720p stream is the most you can hope for, which is quite a lot from this little device

taking it back to the shop

 

It took over a week working with technical support to get it up and running. The tech support is the absolute WORST. I couldn't place his accent (which is odd, since I can recognize most), but anyway, he knew nothing, and kept me on hold most of the...

Don't Even Think About It

 

Partial setup instructions, dead remote and firmware that does not download. WOW! $85 from Dell. Should be no more than $8.50 for a bad toy to play with.

Nice Packaging

Start with 20 minute wait for India customer service

Consumer review by:

Works great for me...

 

I was able to get one of these from Circuit City for $85 in March. I initially made the mistake of using the install software not realizing that the only software you need is the most recent version of Windows Media Player. It works great and using it...

Plug and Play with Windows XP

It'd be nice if it supported S-Video

Simple, Clean, Cheap (in a good way) Machine.

 

Well, so here is what I had. One kick ass computer that I built for video editing using Avid Express Pro. Here are the specs: Intel Motherboard BLKD975XBX2KR 975X 775 Nvidia VGA PNY FX1500 VCQFX1500-PCIE-PB R Windows XP SP2 OS Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600...

Fast, Easy to Hook Up, HDMI and Composite Connections, Ability to Pause Rewind and Fast Forward While Streaming

Needs more video format capabilities, Not Linksys
