Hands on: Sony’s $129 N100 Media Player

I know GoogleTV is all the buzz right now on extender devices, but Sony is trying to get their name in the space and have a pretty solid product, with support for apps like Netflix, Slacker, Pandora as well as being a DLNA player, at around $130 is not all that bad. I’m not a fan of the interface, which will be familiar to you PS3 users.




For starters, the SMP streams Sony’s full suite of Bravia Internet services including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon VoD, Pandora; exclusive channels such as FIFA (back when), Michael Jackson, Dr. Oz and the Berliner Philharmoniker; popular online channels such as Slacker, NPR, Crackle, Wired and Epicurious.com; and Sony’s own Qriocity VoD service that is tied to the PlayStation Network.
