Netgear Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000

 

Can Netgear's latest DMA really stream HD video over Wi-Fi? Jon sits down in his living room to find out.

The EVA8000 is clearly an extremely capable media streaming system. Not only is it able to play HD video over a pretty sluggish 802.11g network – an impressive feat in its own right – but it can also be used to stream, listen to and display a large...

Netgear EVA8000 review

 

A solid, easy to set up network player that will stream HD video and iTunes music

Stutter-free wireless streaming ; access to YouTube ; plays copy-protected music files

No Apple Lossless support ; no DVD

The widest format support, plus flawless wireless streaming, put this among the best network players we’ve seen so far

Netgear EVA-8000 review

 

Has affordable networked multimedia come of age?

Picture quality Plenty of features Hi-def compatible

Compatibility issues No significant uPnP support

Not as polished as it needs to be, but a big step in the right direction nonetheless

Netgear Digital Entertainer HD EVA 8000

 

We've seen the EVA 8000 before, but its price has fallen so sharply that more users will now be able to consider it. Designed to sit under your television (although happily at home under any screen), it's basically a funnel through which all of your...

A box full of media tricks. An affordable and versatile media streamer.

Netgear EVA8000 review

 

This is the only receiver here that can play H.264 and WMV-HD files. It has a full set of video outputs, including SCART, composite, component and HDMI, plus surround-sound support through optical or coaxial S/PDIF.

Netgear Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000

 

The Netgear Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000 is a feature-packed digital multimedia receiver and player, but setting it up entails visiting too many menus.

Unlike any other player, Netgear's high-definition Netgear Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000 transforms your TV into an extension of your home network, and of the internet.

There are plenty of other features here that should appeal though, including HDMI out, a choice of wired or wireless connections and access to both internet radio stations and online media from YouTube directly from the box. You can also view RSS...

Impressive range of features, streams up to 1080p

Menu structure can affect usability, online streaming issues, no internal storage, quite pricey

Netgear - EVA8000

 

Netgear is the latest to chip in with a rather feature-packed addition to the streaming media market, with its EVA8000. Billed as the 'HD ready' addition to the range, you'll find support for up to 1080p ...

Bearing in mind the lack of a 'benchmark' product in this market we feel the Netgear unit fares quite well. It offers a large degree of versatility to home users with large media collections and impressive support for viewing additional content. The...
