Sony SMP-N200 Media Player

Now media streaming and convenience of being able to play your media wirelessly from any display in your home has become a common practice amongst the technically savy and those who are clueless when it comes to computers.  This device is one that simplifies the matter and can appeal to either.  Anyone with a Playstation I'm sure finds the interface easy and attractive.  Sony has adopetd this interface for the SMP-N200.  Take a look.

What sets this apart is that it adds 3D streaming capability (for compatible movies) in addition to streaming content from Netflix, YouTube, Amazon on Demand, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Video Unlimited, VUDU and more. You can connect the box to your television via HDMI or component and, if you are living in the stone ages: composite. The SMP-N200 includes 802.11n WiFi, so you don't have to rush out and buy a new TV just to get the latest streaming media sources - just connect this to your existing set. Not only that but its cheap!  It's only problem is that the latest Roku is smaller and less expensive. Sony is banking that advertising 3D - and supporting the latest streaming movies services (nearly all of them, in fact) will save the day. How many streaming media services do they offer?
