D-Link DSM-510: Save a little, lose a lot

 

HDMI connection, Support wide array of video formats, Handles third-party UPnP AV servers well

Requires WinXP/2000 PC to transcode many video formats, Bundled Nero MediaHome server a pain to use, Not much cheaper than DSM-520, but requires transcoding PC

Mid-priced UPnP AV multiformat photo, audio and video player supporting up to 1080i

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
