I am looking for cheap but good Media Streamer. I came across the following and just want to decide base on users experience with the device.

I know Western Digital has good reputation, but so does Netgear products.

Appreciate the feedback.

Western Digital WD TV Mini Media Player

Netgear Neo TV 200 WiFi Streaming Player

It depends on what you're trying to stream.

Just some AVIs? MKVs? ISO? Bluray ISO? Do you need menus for DVD? How about for Bluray? What audio formats do you need? 7.1 HD stuff or not?

Neither. I would suggest a NeoTV550 if you don't want to spend too much money.

Then you want a Dune.

sadly they jacked the price up on them recently though.

But it'll play more and work better than anything else mentioned in the thread so far.
