NETGEAR Press Conference

NETGEAR had a little something for the connected home enthusiast at their PR event today. Adding Sling to the NeoTV MAX was neat, but unless you have a Sling box it wasn’t nearly as interesting as the NeoTV PRIME. While I have to question the name (don’t we have enough PRIME devices out there?), their implementation of Google TV did […]

Green vs. Non-Green Switches

As part of a recent effort to consolidate all of our backbone networking kit into a structured wiring panel, it was necessary to add a switch to the mix. Never having played with a “Green Ethernet” device (D-Link DGS-1008G) it seemed like a good idea to pick one up and find out how green it was in comparison to two […]

NETGEAR Announces NTV200S Media Streamer

NETGEAR just announced the NTV200S (aka NTV PRO) as successor to their popular NTV200 media streamer this morning. Those with familiar with the previous device will be forgiven for not noticing the difference as it essentially the same device (offering all the good stuff we loved like VUDU and Netflix) just with WiDi support (via 2x 2.4GHz antennas) for $20 […]

Netgear NTV200

We ran the Netgear NeoTV NTV200 through its paces a couple of months ago and were generally impressed with the hardware and interface, but felt a bit letdown by some of the apps on the device. However, one of the best parts about these Internet-connected media streamers is that they continue to evolve over time as the manufacturers release new […]

Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ v2 Reviewed

ReadyNAS

  Before Windows Home Server came along, I used to drool over the ReadyNAS boxes. They were compact and ReadyNAS had already established themselves as being particularly friendly to plug-in development. That was before ReadyNAS got bought up by Netgear. Fortunately, it sounds like Netgear is continuing to support the development of a NAS device that combines professional performance with consumer pricing. It […]
