Netgear releases Digital Entertainer Elite



Netgear is a household name when it comes to networking solutions, and they at the top of their game yet again with the announcement of a new Digital Entertainer Elite that goes by the model number EVA9150. This powerful and flexible digital media player will go down well with folks who have a streamlined mode of entertainment at home, where one is able to seamlessly stream digital content over their home networks to their respective high-definition home entertainment systems. Netgear ensures that the Digital Entertainer Elite will merge the most up-to-date video, audio and wireless technologies for home users to enjoy an unparalleled living room experience.

Features include a built-in 500GB hard drive which we believe that this 500GB will run out of space pretty soon judging by the amount of media that we love to hoard these days, but good thing it can be upgraded easily to larger capacity drives as your budget permits. Theoretically, this would make it the world’s largest capacity home video jukebox on the market – although you’ll need to perform the upgrading work yourself. The Digital Entertainer Elite is fast enough to play Blu-ray quality digital video up to 1080p, high-resolution digital photos, MP3s and recorded TV shows off from their computers or storage devices on the network without suffering from jarring images or dropped frames. In addition, the Digital Entertainer Elite also plays nice with other media-heavy Internet content including YouTube, Internet radio, Flickr, RSS feeds and videos from popular websites.

What’s more, the Digital Entertainer Elite is highly flexible as it plays nice with most major computing systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux platforms in addition to other Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices. Other features include a couple of USB 2.0 ports, direct searching and indexing on the device itself, the ability to navigate through a bunch of content across multiple PCs and devices simultaneously and an easy accessible library among others. You can have the Digital Entertainer Elite perched in your living room for $399 a pop.

This looks like just the Netgear Digital Entertainer HD eva8000 with a hard drive added.

Frankly … I see no advantage to using a built in drive versus using a usb drive .. (which is more convenient).

At $399 this is more more than twice as expensive as a Popcorn Hour (which is a much better option)or a windows media extender and its 4 times more than the stand alone WD HD TV media player.
