Once you have found a movie that you like, you need to make sure that this plays it. .Mkv (Matroska) files are okay and they play very well through this device. It seems to be a bit confused with .ISO disk images which have a tendency to fail. Most other common formats are fine though. While everyone is out there trying to find the 'perfect' home entertainment media player, you likely won't hit the target with this device. The 'perfect' media player is yet to be built and I don't see that coming together very soon due to conflicts with the ability to access things like Netflix, Amazon Instant, and Pandora. In the market right now you have a choice between something that plays 90% of what you want in terms of files and falls short with 3rd party streaming services, or something that plays 90% of what you want for streaming, but has definite limitations on media server access. The better option as far as GUI customization, file format access, and general use would be the Dune HD1 with it's built in HDD bay. That's still a small box and sticking a Roku on top of it covers all your file formats and streaming services.
I've owned a neotv 550 for 3 years and not once has it not performed to my expectations in fact, it's exceeded them. I thought i would buy the latest iteration NeoTV Max, cheaper and less performance. Yeah i get google and amazon, but I'm a video file junky and i've got about 1 TB of Movies stored on my ReadyNas 104, and the new NeoTv sucks at seeing my list, where as, the NeoTv 550 not only sees it, but has played all of the formats that i have stored MP4, MKV, AVI, ISO, just to name a few, and it plays them flawlessly. Not certain how some people's network is setup, but I've setup a Gigabit network at home, and it's not expensive. my network tests yield anywhere from 50Mbps to 70Mbps. I've purchased another neotv 550 and i'm selling that Turd the "neotv Max" to someone that needs the apps....any takers?
This item was a waste of money. I will not consider any NetGear products in the future. It is my opinion that any company that so quickly abandons support for their products, leaving their customers stranded with outdated and disposable technology, does not deserve to be in business.
The con is it won't play youtube videos and they don't seem to be trying to fix it. If this would play netflix,hulu and other streams it would be a very good product.They keep saying it,s coming.So is christmas.
If you don't have to hook up via component video (your TV has HDMI), I suggest you look at alternatives, as there are some better players in the price range (including some Blu-ray players!).
