I'm looking to buy my brother one of the below media streaming devices for the holidays, but I can't make up my mind which would suit him best. So I thought I'd list out his basic needs and you guys could help me choose.
He has a 4TB NAS and a wired and wireless home network. He lives in a small apartment, so running a cable is no problem since the router is right next to his TV. He currently uses an old PC hooked up to his TV as an internet/Netflix/Pandora hookup, but the computer is dying.
Budget: Under $200 USD
Necessities: Mostly for accessing Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Hulu. Some playback across the network of .avi, .mkv and .mp3 files, but that is rare. He also surfs the web on his TV (All-Recipes.com, Google Reader, GMail, etc) so a web browser or similar functionality would be much appreciated. His TV is has all types of connections from composite to HDMI.
Here's the specific models I'm considering:
D-Link Boxee Box
Netgear NeoTV 550
Popcorn Hour A-210
So, what do you think?
