REVIEW

Simple.TV 2

As a streaming-based DVR the Simple.TV offers a lot of functionality including a novel sharing feature, but if you just want to watch on your TV, instead of a tablet or phone, there are better alternatives.

LG BP620
REVIEW

LG BP620

If you want 3D, the LG BP620 has most of the right features, but the absence of Amazon Instant and a dedicated Netflix button hurt its value a bit.

Elgato HD HomeRun

The Elgato HDHomeRun is a decent way to get over-the-air TV on your Mac, but its high bandwidth requirements mean you're better off opting for wired rather than Wi-Fi streaming.

Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS
REVIEW

Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS

Though the DSS has its moments of excellence, most are less than stellar. Factoring in the clutter associated with setting up such a device, we think gamers who are passionate about surround sound are better off buying something that natively supports that feature.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV

Olive 4
REVIEW

Olive 4 ( 500GB, black)

The Olive 4 is a fantastic-sounding digital audio server, but its high price and limited feature list limit its appeal to die-hard audiophiles.
