Introduction

D-Link DSM-520

At a Glance
Product D-Link Medialounge Wireless HD media player (DSM-520)
Summary HD (1080i) networked media player with wide format support and HDMI output
Pros • Support for digital HD videos
• UPnP support
• Wireless and Wired network support
• Attractive user interface
Cons • Problems with some MP3 content
• Limited format support

Since the cost of digital storage continues to fall, I'm even more tempted to put all of my multimedia content onto a single big hard drive. I already have thousands of digitized audio tracks and images from my digital camera on my network, and I've ripped some DVDs. But until I can find the perfect device to play it all back on my family-room entertainment center, I'm somewhat hesitant to invest the time and effort to rip all of my videos.

For this review, I looked at a device that I hoped could meet my requirements: The D-Link DSM-520 MediaLounge Wireless HD Media Player. It's designed to stream music, pictures and HD video from your home network to your entertainment center.
