Great For Me!


I had an RCA piece of junk and replaced it with the D-Link. I was so surprised with the performance compared to the RCA. I am totally satisfied as I only wanted to use it for Utube and NetFlix.

A great Deal


I was really skeptical about purchasing this because I had been considering Apple TV and thought 'what can I expect for less than half the cost?' But I took the chance, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get hooked up and running....
