We recently picked up a Sony SMP-N100 Streaming Player with Wi-Fi media box at NewEgg for about $50. We’ve had it about a month now and it looks like we’ll keep it. We originally liked that is was wireless, giving us the ability to go online with our TV where our computer and DSL connection were not available. Unfortunately that option didn’t work out that well, the wireless connection wasn’t as robust as I hoped it could be. Let’s take a closer look at the SMP N100 in this review.

The Review:

Unfortunately, Sony’s wireless was a bit flaky and we decided to use the network cable option which is working much better. Even when we had >80% signal strength menu loads were delayed or sometimes timed out. It got to the point of frustration and I just switched to wired full time.
