D-Link Boxee Box

 

It has taken almost a year to reach the market, but this most peculiarly designed media player has been well worth the wait.

It may be overpriced, but the Boxee Box has unparalleled codec support, a slick UI and looks fantastic sitting under your TV. The fact Boxee has committed to regular firmware updates also means it should keep improving while third party app support is...

D-Link Boxee Box review

 

Huge array of content ; supports almost every main file type ; nice design ; remote

Not for rookies ; confusing interface ; flat sound ; cumbersome setup

If you know your stuff, the Boxee may be for you – but this is no device for novices

D-Link Boxee Box review

 

D-Link's Boxee Box marries streaming with local media player capabilities – but can it down the Apple TV?

Whether streaming your own content or the best of the web, the Boxee’s the way to go

D-Link Boxee Box review

 

Boxee Box is one of several devices on the market that allows you to enjoy the video and web content accessible via your home broadband connection on a more convenient screen, namely your TV.

With the best parts of this media player hobbled and a poor experience with those parts that do work, we really can't recommend the Boxee Box. However, US reviewers claim recent firmware updates on hardware configured for use in North America have made...

Boxee Box by D-Link review

 

The Boxee Box arrives on the market after a long wait, and the streaming landscape it enters has changed dramatically since the box was first announced in late 2009. The Boxee Box by D-Link makes a clear design statement, but it still has room to grow...

Overall, the Boxee Box by D-Link promises to be a great addition to a connected home - once it implements all of its premium service offerings and fixes the bugs. I like the petite, two-sided remote (although a backlight would have been nice for the...

D-Link Boxee Box review

 

UPDATE: When we first reviewed this product there were some bugs in the interface. A recent firmware update has removed these, so we've updated the review and increased the rating.

It supports tons of file formats and has access to hundreds of online services, making the best media streamer we've seen.

A Boxee Box : D-Link Boxee Box media player

 

The Boxee Box could be regarded as a hybrid product. D-Link, the source of this particular offering, has combined the free Boxee media software with its own hardware kit in order to offer the user a solution to the conundrum of creating a home-based...

Recently I have been checking out the Boxee Box as part of my home network computer set up. The results were not always as positive as I would have liked as the Boxee Box proved to have a temperamental side to its make-up. Lets start with the actual...
