Pros: Great streaming, outstanding remote, able to play MPEG-2 videos.

Cons: Chronic overheating and rapid failure.

This was my favorite travel accessory for the short time that it lived. The box is externally identical to my Roku boxes, but this had a far better remote, and the capability to play MPEG-2 files and easy DLNA. (The Roku only plays MPEG-4.) It was better than the Roku in every way, except for a tendency to overheat and need to be shut down after an hour of use. Eventually it quit altogether. It had lots of legs up on the Roku, but the fact that it wasn't reliable means that it's off my list for good.

Pros: good compatibility, cheap, Netflix button

Cons: slow menu navigation, app startup

I picked up an NTV300 (not the 300sl) on sale primarily for use as a Netflix box. For this purpose the time to start up the Netflix app was longer than I was willing to accept.

This device takes maybe 35 seconds to actually start up the Netflix app from the main menu. It takes a further 15-20 seconds or so to start streaming, and 7 seconds to actually stop once the "stop" button is hit. Fast-forward and rewind are similarly slow.

Once it starts playing it's fine, seems to be able to do high def and definitely does Dolby Digital Plus.

I returned mine and got a Roku. Way faster, worth the price difference for me.
