Netgear NeoTV Max with Slingplayer review

 

A SlingCatcher alternative comes to NTV300SL and its siblings

Updated with a Slingplayer app ; Cheapest media streamers ; Easy-to-use remote control

Not all models have a QWERTY remote ; Lacks the Google TV integration of Netgear's Prime model

The NeoTV Max has a lot of competition in the media streaming market, but the new Slingplayer app gives it a slight edge. It also gives seekers of the SlingCatcher a way to watch TV on the big screen without resorting to buying a pre-owned SlingCatcher...

Have 5 of them ... all good

 

there's a bunch of garbage apps, just like on most of these types of media servers.

the only problem I had with these was getting WIDI to work on my Lenovo laptop. The problem turned out to be the firewall (ESET) on my laptop. Once I made the WIDI software an Exception in the firewall, WIDI has worked great. I bought these mainly for...

Not bad at all

 

These have the usual media apps on them, except no Amazon Prime. Most of the apps are junk on these media servers, but these Netflix units stand out for a couple reasons. First they are WIDI capable, so you can use them to project a WIDI capable device...

terrible product

 

Bought this on sale. Not worth the money. Slow And laggy. Locked up during operation changes. Video streaming from my WD my cloud was unwatchable. Didn't even play Netflix well. Spend a little bit more and buy something better.
