Netgear NeoTV

 

Hugely flexible, loads of connections, extensive format support

No streaming services to speak of, quite hard to live with

Decent enough if you know what you’re doing, but no easy ride

Netgear NeoTV 550 review

 

A media streamer that can do it all

Easy to set up and use ; Huge file support ; Great remote ; Cover art is useful ; Good value for money

Lack of internet apps ; Looks bland ; No built-in Wi-Fi ; No HDMI cable

Despite the ongoing march of Blu-ray into homes across the country, there's been no let-up in the number of media devices that enable you to get all the media you've collated on your PC – whether movies, music files or photos – and access them on your...

Netgear NeoTV 550 review

 

Netgear's latest media streamer can play files from UpNP, DLNA and SMB shares, stream video from YouTube and access internet radio stations. If you don't want to plug it into your network, it can also access media stored on a flash drive or SDHC card.

Apart from a fairly fiddly internet content browser, there’s not much wrong with the NeoTV 550. It’s not special enough to justify its premium price, though.

NeoTV 550 review

 

The NeoTV 550 offers good connectivity options but no storage

Good connectivity and file format support

Expensive considering there’s no built-in storage

The NeoTV is also pretty expensive for a device that doesn’t have a built-in hard disk – in fact, it even makes the Apple TV look cheap.

Netgear NeoTV NTV550

 

Supports several file formats. Can catalog videos from different devices.

Expensive. No Wi-Fi. No Netflix, Hulu, or other common online streaming services.

If you have a lot of media stores in your home network's devices, the Netgear NeoTV NTV550 can bring those files to your HDTV, but a too-high price, and a lack of features spoil the deal.

Netgear NeoTV 550 - Geared to Entertain

 

Netgear is an established brand when it comes to networking solutions. They've been exploring into other avenues out of which, HD media player is one. This is a product segment that's been mostly dominated by large data storage solution companies and...

We were thoroughly impressed by the Netgear NeoTV 550. It's a solid player that handles media very well. The very elegantly designed interface is also a thing to look at. Netgear has priced the NeoTV 550 at Rs.14,649, which is a lot of money.
