Zyxel DMA1100P review


With a built-in HomePlug for easier networking – is it the mains event?

Very plug-and-play ; Good streaming ability ; HDMI picture

Format support could be better ; A bit expensive ; More plugs required

An interesting mix of powerline networking and media streaming but be aware it wont play all common video files

Zyxel HomePlug DMA1100P review

Milk does the Body Good!

I have a few TB of video and growing. Most VOB files need to be reconverted due to various issues with VOB files, but I've been able to play almost everything in my collection with ease with this device and it works well.

The software does not allow you to share different folders to different devices. This means I set up two media server boxes, one for everyone including the kids and another with R Rated movies, etc on it for the living room and master bedroom.

Great streamer


This is a good way to get the movies from your computer to your tv. Set up was pretty easy and it has HDMI connection for the tv. It is helpful to understand IP addresses so you can get it connected to your computer. You also have to get your computer...

Easy to set up Streams all kinds of media Doesn't need new wiring to connect to my computer Nice remote control features

None but you need to understand networking
