D-Link DSM-330

 

DivX and web content directly to your TV sounds great but has D-Link got it right with the D-Link DSM-330?

And if this doesn't bother you, the implementation of the DivX service on the DSM330 may well do. The second major problem with the DSM-330 is that you can only browse through video content - you can't search by keyword as you can on the main website,...

D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

Getting media from your computer to your television is now big business as more and more companies stray into the arena. The latest is DivX, but can it offer to meet your home cinema needs? We get streaming to find out. If you are a fan of the DivX...

Plug-ins, quick, easy to use, plenty of features

No hard drive, PC needs to be on all the time

If you are a fan of the DivX format then having a media streamer offering you DivX in your living room will be a no brainer.

D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

We used an HDMI cable to connect the D-Link DSM-330 to a 50in Pioneer plasma HDTV. Other connection options, such as S-Video and composite, are available too.

The DSM-330 product will live on, but the "DivX Connected" part of the name hardly fits anymore. Without Stage6, at least for now, it's just another streaming-media box, and not a particularly special one. It's a simple, straightforward streamer that...

D-Link DSM-330

 

A nicely-rendered menu structure gives you the opportunity to choose from video, audio or photos. A selection of thumbnails grabbed from your content are casually 'thrown' onto your screen; select one, and a list of the folders (with yet more grabs,...

Sets the standard for usability, crisp pictures

Limited media compatibility, no standard-def widescreen mode

D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

The idea behind D-Link's DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player is a good one: connect the box to your TV, and it allows you to access DivX video from your PC in another room via a wireless connection.

The DSM-330 product will live on, but the "DivX Connected" part of the name hardly fits anymore. Without Stage6, at least for now, it's just another streaming-media box, and not a particularly special one. It's a simple, straightforward streamer that...

D-Link - DSM-330

 

Media streamers continue to grow in popularity and are fast becoming a must-have accessory for the modern home. D-Link manages to achieve something a little bit different with its DSM-330, teaming up with DivX to offer ...

We were very impressed by the interface and usability of the DSM-330, but a little let down by high definition streaming and the Stage6 video service. It'll be interesting to see what plug-ins are developed to increase functionality, and if the...

D-Link DSM-330 DIVX HD Media Player

 

Web User looks at the first DivX Connected device, which will display high-resolution content from your computer on your HD-Ready television.

With its neat implementation and decent set of features, this ranks at the top of the list of devices that'll sit under your TV and communicate with PCs on your home network. If your Wi-Fi signal is sturdy enough, it should be able to cope, but could...

D-Link DSM-330

 

Easy setup, range of outputs, good file support, great interface

Struggles to play 720p content over wireless

D-Link's DSM-330 is a product that excels at streaming media over a wired network, but struggles a bit with the combination of wireless connection and high-definition video.

D-Link DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player

 

This streaming-media player is long on potential but short on execution.

Lets you stream content directly from the Internet ; Video quality is very good

Installation is tricky ; DivX content is hard to find

The makers still say that the device will debut in the United States before the end of June at a price of less than $300. But I would have a very hard time recommending it to anybody until its content and distribution issues work out

Product Specifications

The DSM-330 DivX Connected HD Media Player allows users to enjoy multimedia content stored on their PC on a home entertainment centre over their Wi-Fi or Ethernet home network, using the DivX Connected platform. DivX is to video what mp3 is to music. Owing to powerful compression, DivX video files are a fraction of the size of a DVD, saving bandwidth when streaming them over a home network. With this media player, resolutions of up to 720p can be achieved for best picture quality on a HDTV using the HDMI connection. Standard televisions may also be connected using SCART or Composite Video cables. Software is also included to convert other video formats into DivX.
