Netgear has three models in the Digital Media Player genre that are worth mention. The first of these three that I will review is the Netgear EVA2000 Digital Entertainer Live is the newest model released in 2009. Like the Buffalo Digital Media Player, the EVA 2000 is solely a streaming based media player that allows you to stream your digital media from your computer to any TV in your house. Add in a Netgear wireless adapter to access wireless features, and easy set-up, and you have media players that anyone can set up and get running in a matter of minutes. It comes in black, has a sleek look, and would be a great addition to any home theater. There are some downsides as well.

Netgear launched this little player in July of 2009. It offers great features for a wired home theater system. The EVA2000 can also be used as a wireless digital media player, but you must purchase the wireless adapter, Netgear Wireless Adapter for EVA2000, in order to take advantage of the wireless features. The wireless adapter will run about $ 40.00 from Amazon. The EVA2000 offers great features, but does not offer many options in the connectivity area. Limited to only an HDMI output, the EVA2000 is geared towards the household with strictly home theater systems which include a TV with HDMI. This leaves out any Component Video or S-Video families out there. Netgear is intentually vague in describing the resolution output. The name suggests HD output, but from what I can tell, it only outputs video at 480p. So if you are looking for high end 1080p output, or just 720p output, then you will want to look elsewhere. I'll be reviewing two other players from Netgear that offer the higher end features. If you are looking for a simple player to stream videos from YouTube or other online video services, or just a basic way to stream media from your computer then this player might be for you. Some key features are:

o up to 480p Standard Definition Playback (HDMI Only) (based on my research)
o MP2, MP3, WMA, AAC, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, WAV, LPCM, Vorbis, AC3, M4A, Dolby Digital (HDMI Output Only)
o Supports WMV 7/8/9, VC1, VP6, H.263, H.264, MPEG 1/2/4, AVI, DivX 4.x, Divx 5.x, Xvid, MOV, MP4, MPEG2-PS, MPEG2-TS, DVD VOB, FLV, Matroska, ASF video playback
o USB 2.0
o Connections: Video: HDMI, AV Composite, USB 2.0 (2 ports), 10/100 Ethernet; Audio: HDMI Audio Out
o Image formats: JPG
o Included Remote Control
