What makes this network media player really interesting is it can pull Youtube broadcasts, news, Facebook and other documentaries from the Internet onto the big screen. Because it connects using the HDMI cable to the TV the digital signals are clearer and sharper. The only bottleneck is the bandwidth of the Internet connection. With my 4Mbps Streamyx service it delivers the video downloads without much buffering.
This little baby helps me appreciate what wireless network can do. But because my PC must be switched on and the DLNA program launched to allow it to be 'seen' in the network by the Samsung. I'm not in the habit of leaving the PC running 24/7 because I believe in resting it to extend its service life. My next project will ensure my multimedia files can be accessed 24/7 and not only across my home network but also, if necessary, on the Internet anywhere around the world where it is available. The project is the NAS or Network Attached Storage. In contention are Buffalo and Synology with the latter under serious consideration.
