4.0 out of 5 stars Super easy and works! May only be partial solution for some, August 22, 2012
This review is from: D-Link MovieNite Plus Streaming Media Player (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The D-Link MovieNite Plus Streaming Media Player is a very handy addition to my media center. It's the first device of its type that I've tried out and I really enjoy being able to easily access Netflix and other video content such as Revision3 video podcasts and others that I am just getting into exploring.

A few notes on setup and ease of use:
Setting this up was super easy! I just plugged in an HDMI cable (not included) to an available port on my TV and plugged the D-link into power. It found my network and started working and all I had to do was press the WPS button on my router.

The Netflix 'module' did ask me the first several times to choose between a regular Netflix and a 'Kids' Netflix, which I thought was an annoying additional step, but it seems to have learned my preferences and now just goes right into netflix. The user interface here is like a file menu, which is easy to navigate and search. The video quality is VERY good for everything I've streamed to my HDTV.

One gripe I have is that the different modules (or 'apps') each have their own layout once you're in them. i.e. browsing Youtube Videos is a different menu scheme than browsing Netflix videos or Vudu videos. And the Youtube module didn't seem very well put together (not at all like the youtube experience on the internet) but I personally don't plan on watching much Youtube content on my HDTV. I'm not a Vudu member, but this device lets you start a free trial, so maybe I will be soon. If they added Hulu to a future update to this service, it's value would increase drastically. If you're a Hulu member you might find this box only a partial solution.

For the price, and NO membership fees, I think this product is a great value, especially if, like me, you were formerly paying for X-Box Live Gold just to have Netflix through your TV. This device will pay for itself in 4-5 months JUST on that basis. Plus, you have all the other content available.

Thanks for reading, if it was helpful please click the thumbs up!
