Pros Hooks up easily. HD to the TV.
Cons I want to view free internet entertainment content. And, there is free content, just none I want to watch. Anything that I might want to watch that would be free to view over the air or free with my PC is not available.
Summary Until DESIRABLE entertainment content can be streamed to watch for FREE with these devices I'm opting out. A penny saved is a penny earned - make your money off ads. Or, have a special category for FREE content on each channel (if there is any). I did not have the patience to browse every title to "maybe" find one that did not have to be rented, purchased, or subscribed to.
I am returning it to the place of purchase.
Pros 1080p video, hulu, netflix, pandora, youtube, vudu. This thing is better than Roku 2
Cons none! This thing is awesome!
Summary This CNET Article was written when the price of this device was 80 dollars. It's now 49.99 at wal-mart. That makes this technically the best streaming video player on the market for the price! It smokes the Roku LT in feature content and video quality.
Pros HD content when available, great for streaming, good buffering
Cons Poor menu responsiveness, annoying but it does function. Rewind/Fastforward is ok but difficult to manage.
Summary If you are debating between this and the ROKU I prefer the functionality of the ROKU, menu responsiveness is great on the ROKU in comparison to the NEO TV, otherwise wireless connectivity is great on both units and streaming is pretty decent ...
Pros Absolutely none- very difficult to use; giving it the minimum 1/2 star rating is beyond too much.
Cons Horrible navigation; the remote makes it impossible to type the names of movies, shows, or channels that you want to watch. It could take 10 minutes or so to enter the name of a movie, and proceed to watch it. Just gave up.
Summary Big mistake buying this item. It's navigation was the most excruciating process I've ever endured with electronics. It takes 10 minutes minimum to enter the title of a movie on the remote. Didn't they do a focus group or something before launching this product???
The remote is rough as stone - should be ultra-sensitive instead - to allow for not only better use - but just USE!!
And, their customer service is among the worst I've ever seen. I tried to provide feedback, and their site kept saying "experiencing technical problems, cannot provide feedback..." Are you kidding me????
Awful product; awful service. awful decision.
