The SMP-N200 (smp2) Instillation was quick & easy, within few minutes I was watching Netflix! The UI is responsive, snappy, w/large fonts & easy to navigate.
VUDU offers instant free credit w/on-screen quick sign-in (just enter email), I picked X-Men First Glass then selected preview, the movie started in less than split of a sec.!! And …WOW!! The best audio/video streaming I’ve ever seen, EXCELLENT Quality! Like Blue-ray! The option Display info showed… [HDX 1080p w/5.1 DD+plus], the AVR displayed over HDMI & 2.1 PCM over Optical -out
Netflix Video quality is also very good & accurate w/o artifact/blurring, has no adaptive steaming or 5.1DD+, only 2.0 PCM Via HDMI& Optical audio-out! While streaming contents, Title/Speed [info] could be displayed & from options [IP Content Noise Reduction] can be adjusted to eliminate blurring ...works great!
Amazon prime audio/video very good, w/grid layout, 5.1 PCM via HDMI & 5.1DD (bitstream) over Optical audio-out
It has Hulu plus, Crackle, Pandora, youtube, 3D& more … Video Unlimited & Music Unlimited channels are in service now!
The Device feels like it has more than adequate horsepower w/o corner-cuts & although it’s silent there is maybe some kind of cooling magnesium built-in drives some air out!! It seems to be very stable, I clocked the reboot-time from cold and it was a little under two (2) seconds!!! The SMP2 UI comes with some handy Options; Audio DRC, HDMI Control, Auto Standby Mode & Display info, HDMI Deep Color Output. The device also comes w/IR remote control & HDMI-out (jack), COMPONENT, COMPOSITE, DIGITAL OPTICAL Audio out, RCA L/R Audio, USB, Ethernet (LAN) & Wi-Fi (b/g/n).
Didn’t try DLNA (not my thing) or Internet-Browser, USB, 3D, tablets “throw”, Smartphone remote control App, or Wi-Fi.
In short, its keeper!
