D-Link Boxee Box review

 

Boxee began life as media player software, before D-Link built this rather striking Box to house it in. Back in December we were less than impressed by its glitchy, unstable firmware, but the newly updated Box is a different beast. Cool design The...

Boxee Box by D-Link review

 

Fantastic online services, great user interface, decent remote control, option to add local storage

Not many movies yet, minor bugs, like sites not showing full-screen video

Boxee Box Review

 

D-Link's Boxee Box stands as one of the most ambitious set-top boxes out there, but its glossy front end hides mechanisms still seemingly stuck together with chewing gum and duct tape.

D-Link Boxee Box Review

 

The Boxee Box does offer a lot of goodness - a whole bunch of apps, interesting design and is a very capable media-streaming device. However, you get the WD Live Hub with a 1TB hard drive built-in for considerably less money.

Very good HD playback, with the filters correctly set up, Boxee Media Manager app is easy to set up, Unique design, Remote has a complete keypad on one side

A couple of filters make video noisy, if turned on, UI feels dated, You get a WD Live Hub with a 1TB drive for slightly less cash!, Quite a few apps don�t work in India

D-Link DSM-380

 

Easy to use straight out of the box, although you do have to create an account. Excellent picture quality and automatic picture refresh rate sensing for your TV i.e. 1080p.

HD streaming over WIFI very flaky. WiFi conection often drops out even in a good strength area. Need to use wired network if you want reliability and good streaming speeds. D-LINK no longer supports item and Boxee is now no more as they have moved to...

Plays every video format possible.

Freezes from time to time and needs to be rebooted.

D-Link DSM-380

 

Easiest media player to use I have come across.

Didn't work with all but one of my tv's, which was the oldest of the three I have. The HDMI output on this device is very temperamental in that respect. Even with the one tv I have with which it does work I have to be careful not to knock even slightly...
