Buffalo LinkTheater PC-P4LWAG review: Buffalo LinkTheater PC-P4LWAG


Buffalo LinkTheater PC-P4LWAG

Streams movies, music, and photos using wireless 802.11g or wired Ethernet; handles DRM-protected WMAs; reliable wireless streaming performance; capable of outputting multichannel Dolby Digital sound; outputs video and images at resolutions up to 720p.

Perfect for me


Great player, and I'd recommend it to anyone. The little things I consider cons are almost expected from these low-end products. I have no doubt this product will work well for many years. Easy set-up, fast streaming, and it seems to be a solid device.

Setup is easy and fast. Streams fast, even with large divx files (full movies). I have it set up on a wireless network, and feel zero drag when playing media. The interface could be a little better, but overall, it is very good and easy to navigate....

This is the reason for the non-perfect score. This device, as with all cheap electronics, is still solid, but little time was put into the design of the software. It works very well and fast, but you can tell it was designed by some engineers. When you...
