Roku is certainly making a new for themselves these days. With media streamers and content distributors all jockeying for position in this crowded market place, Roku has managed to become a star player with their low-cost, high-value boxes. Their line of self-branded set-top units provide instant access to Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, MLB.tv and a bunch of other sources. For many, this is the box to get if looking to replace the cable set-top with something more economical. But Roku has reached an interesting point. They have nearly saturated the market doing all that they can do. They need... Read more...

Sony just recently jumped into the Media Player sector with a new N100 network box, and now an industry mainstay is coming out with another rival: Netgear just debuted the NeoTV 550 and NeoTV 350 HD Media Players. Both of these players play back multi-media stored locally at up to 1080p, with the 550 offering support for files stored on SD cards, USB hard drives and even files on Blu-ray. It supports 7.1 channel audio, but there's no internal storage space to speak of. The 350 is mostly the same but without support for external Blu-ray drives, and while a price isn't listed for it, the 550 will... Read more...

It's a good business to be in, this storage sector. Regardless of how much people have, they seem to always end up wanting more. As media grows in size and things become larger and more space-consuming to archive, people are turning to NAS drives and big RAID stacks to handle all of the content that they'd like to keep safe. Netgear has been a major player in this market for a long while, and the company is now introducing their ReadyNAS Ultra line for home users that are more like prosumers than anything else. Being that this is a NAS drive at heart, it boasts some of the same features that you... Read more...
Today sure feels like launch day, as quite a few big-name companies have decided to kick March off with a bang this morning. Of course, CeBIT is getting underway in Germany, so no one should really be surprised. One of those companies is Netgear, who has decided to introduce a couple of new devices that provide a wide variety of functionality. Starting off is the High-Performance Wireless-N HD Home Theater Kit (WNHDB3004), which is designed to wirelessly play back "multiple jitter-free 1080p HD video and audio streams to every room in the house flawlessly, and at double the performance and range...

Netgear has been in the router business for years now, but connectivity is changing. It's not just Wi-Fi that we need access to anymore--it's 3G as well. The company's newest broadband router makes sure to integrate that very functionality, with the MBRN3300 featuring an internal 3G modem as well as the typical features you'd expect in a Wi-Fi router.Inside, the device has an Ericsson 3G HSPA radio for connecting to cellular data networks, an 802.11n Wi-Fi radio and support for hard-wired Ethernet connections as well. It features four 10/100 Ethernet ports, EV-DO or HSPA data support and tons of... Read more...
Netgear is certainly not new to the Network Attached Storage space. The company has been producing NAS drives for businesses and professionals for years, and they have actually garnered quite the name for themselves all the while. But for whatever reason, the outfit has been hesitant to dabble in the consumer NAS arena...until now.Today, Netgear is finally taking the leap of faith that we've all been waiting for by launching the Stora. Aimed to compete with offerings by Seagate, QNAP, Western Digital, Hitachi and loads of other HDD firms, this sleek black box helps consumers keep all of their media... Read more...
We're not quite sure when it happened, but media streaming has taken off in a big way. Just about every consumer electronics company with any experience in the HD/Wi-Fi/routing businesses has decided to jump in, with Netgear being no different. The new Digital Entertainer Live is a step-up from the EVA9150 introduced last year, as evidenced by the EVA2000 model name. The Internet-connected box enables users to watch YouTube videos and a wide range of online content right on their television, and it'll also play back material stored on USB storage devices and networked drives/computers around the...

While Netgear's probably best known for its WLAN routers, the company has recently delved into home networking. To that end, the latest kit is actually quite useful for those looking to make this multimedia more like a networked pool of content and less of a standalone segment on a single PC's hard drive. The Home Theater Internet Connection Kit is a Powerline-based solution designed to turn your overlooked electrical outlets into high-speed Internet and home network connections.The bundle, which took home a 2009 CES Innovations Award earlier this year, has finally reached the "shipping" stage,...

If you haven't heard of "Internet throttling" by now, you will soon in all likelihood. Major cable-based ISPs are considering (if not implementing) hard bandwidth caps on their users each month, which is really putting devout Netflix streamers and Hulu watchers in a bind. After all, if you get all of your TV/entertainment from the web, it doesn't take long to suck down an incredible amount of bits and bytes.While Netgear certainly can't make those guys have a change of heart, it can help users stuck behind those walls keep tabs on how much they've used. Many people have argued that the companies... Read more...
Netgear's ReadyNAS line has been steadily growing, expanding and adapting over the years, and that's definitely evident with the newest family member. The ReadyNAS 2100 is a rack-mount system rather than a standard rectangular box that attaches to one's desktop, and it's obviously aimed at prosumers and small businesses in dire need of serious storage. The device is built to slot within a 1U rack and provides four bays for adding HDDs.Naturally, the 2100 enables users to share content across a LAN or WAN, guard against disk failures, and grow capacity as needed. You'll also find enterprise-grade... Read more...
