Netgear NeoTV 550 HD Network Media Player Review

Netgear 550

Not so much a full review as an update, as Netgear has released a new firmware on their 550 Media Player. The price (and looks IMO) are still somewhat of an issue given the competition. And call me crazy, but for $170 you should really be including an HDMI cable.


The NeoTV 550’s glaring weakness is in its internet offerings:  If you are married to Netflix, you need to move on; If you can’t live without Pandora, you’d better try and live with YouTube and Flickr.  Netgear has promised their NeoTV users more upgrades in the future that should bolster it’s internet offerings, but for now, we are left with the bare minimum.
