Magnavox Internet Streamng Player w/Built-inWi-Fi & Internet Apps
Disappointed at First... But
It was my mistake. When I first opened the package, it did not list the same apps as advertised on air. But after I calmed down and plugged it in, I realized that the unit led me through a step-by-step software update... Voilà! The same apps as advertised and even others to choose from! Great product!
Great Little box!
I had the Sony blue ray player already but it was not wifi so I ordered this little box from QVC and I love it, works great and much more clear then the sony player, also it does not buffer every 10 minutes like the sony player! I have told my friends about this little Magnavox and they are now waiting for theirs in the mail! Thanks QVC
I would recommend this product to any one ,this work's very well.
Excellent Item For Price
Received on Friday, took less than 15 minutes to hook-up and get update from Blockbuster to Hulu Plus and have been enjoying both Netflix, Pandora and Hulu none stop.... no false representation here perfect price for first time media streamer purchase.
I purchased two of the Magnavox Streamers for both of my sons. They LOVE it! I myself have a Roku that I purchased from QVC in my bedroom, but this Magnavox is equivalent to the Roku. If you're on the fence about purchasing this Magnavox, don't be it's an awesome product! I highly recommend this product! You can't beat the price! Go for it! ;^)
Purchased product after watching presentation. Representative of Magnavox kept referring that the streaming player had the HuluPlus app during the presentation. This app was the selling point for me. I bought this product because of HuluPlus. But, when I recv'd the product it had Blockbuster instead. And, we all know Blockbuster is no longer in business. This is very frustrating because a big company like Magnavox is out there misrepresenting their products on QVC. Shame, shame on you Magnavox
GREAT ITEM FORTHEPRICE!!
I HAVE ONLY HAD THE DEVICE FOR A WEEK BUT WAS VERY EASY TO CONNECT TO WIRELESS NETWORK. I HAVE A 15 YEAR OLD TV SO I WAS GLAD TO SEE A DEVICE THAT STILL COMES WITH THE OLDER CABLES. GIVES GREAT SOUND QUALITY AND BETTER PICTURE QUALITY THAN THE TV WOULD HAVE OTHERWISE.. HAS 8 OF THE MOST POPULAR CHANNELS, BUT WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MORE, BUT FOR THIS PRICE IT IS WORTH IT. NETFLIX SEEMS TO NAVIGATE MORE SLOWLY THAN THE OTHERS, BUT ONCE YOU GET THE MOVIE GOING IT WORKS FINE. THE UNIT ITSELF SEEMS TO RUN A BIT SLOW EVEN WITH VERY HIGH SPEED INTERNET CONNECTION, BUT WOULD STILL RECOMMEND IT. GREAT WAY TO TRY A STREAMING DEVICE FOR THE FIRST TIME. CAN'T GET THEM IN THE STORE FOR THIS PRICE. WITH CABLE GETTING SO EXPENSIVE, IT IS NICE TO HAVE A LOW COST ALTERNATIVE AS WE ALL HAVE TO WATCH OUR BUDGET THESE DAYS. VERY SLEEK, NICE LOOKING BOX. AND A NICE SMALL REMOTE THAT IS VERY SIMPLE TO USE. IT EVEN HAS ITS OWN DEDICATED BUTTONS FOR NETFLIX AND VUDU. MAKES IT EVEN SIMPLER!! WILL DO FINE UNTIL I CAN AFFORD TO GET A SMART TV. GIVES ME MORE OPTIONS FOR THE MOMENT WITH MY "DUMB" TV. LIKE THE UNIT VERY MUCH!!
Absolutely Love It!
I was skeptical at first since it was not working with the provided cables. I then tried an HDMI cable and it instantly came on. All I had to do was connect to WiFi and I could instantly start streaming TV shows, movies, and more. Love, love, love it!!!
So far, Very Good!
We've only had this up and running for a few days now, but so far it exceeds our expectations. I mostly got this to free up a laptop that was being used to stream video to our living room TV. Set-up of this Magnavox Player was fast and painless. Since we mainly use it to stream our Netflix content to the TV, the Pandora, YouTube, and Vudu apps sites are all just bonus stuff. Although it does a very nice job streaming Netflix, I think a WD TV Live streamer, I used before might have given a slightly better picture, but not much. One really nice advantage to this model is that I was able to use an audio cable adaptor and hook a pair of computer speakers into the system, so we have sound coming from both the TV, (via HDMI cable), and the computer speakers via the coaxial ports.
Sure the time it takes to start streaming content is about 25-30 seconds and that could be better, but for the price, I dont think you can beat this unit. If it's still working in 6-8 months, (we use it A LOT every day!), I'll up the rating to 5 star.
QVC did a nice job getting this to us quickly too. Just wish the 'shipping and handling' charges were a bit less, but still a good deal for under 40 bucks...
Pretty good Product
When I recieved this products I was so happy and it worked for awhile. About two weeks wenr by without any problems. Then one day I turned it off and no picture came back. I tried several ways to connect this product but it jst didn;t connect.
So, I returned the product
Can't beat the price. It even includes Pandora so it's not just for movies and TV shows. Even if you don't want to pay for something, you can use it for youtube which does have TV shows and movies available (just create a playlist) - I removed my cable and now we just have a bunch of these. Tired of paying $100+ a month to watch a handful of channels.
GREAT PRICE BUT........
EASY TO SET UP! THE PROBLEMS I HAVE IS LOADING IS VERY SLOW WITH EXCELLENT INTERNET CONNECTION. WHEN I GO TO THE YOU TUBE APP I'M HAVEING A VERY HARD TIME PUTTING IN MY SELECTION. MOST OF THE TIME WHATEVER I PUT IN NEVER COMES UP SO i'M NOT PLEASED WITH THE YOU TUBE APP AT ALL. THE REMOTE DOESN'T WORK THAT GREAT EITHER YOU HAVE TO PUSH IT OVER AND OVER.....I RECEIVED IT ON YESTERDAY..
