Top three mobile application threats

That's not to say that the EVA9150 isn't an improvement over the EVA8000 - it not only tidies up a number of niggles but also adds extra features such as support for 802.11n and a 500GB internal hard drive. It feels a lot more finished than its predecessor and overall the interface appears more polished than before.

Easy to use, but is it worth the money?

Yet, are all the differences are worth the considerable price hike? Certainly, it appears this device is another exchange rate casualty, with it retailing at $400 in the US, almost matching the figure in sterling, but its ease of use may be a price worth paying for some.

Verdict

The EVA9150 is a very good network streamer with comprehensive format support and good quality playback. The new additions such as the hard drive and 802.11n support are welcome features and, overall, it's more refined than its predecessor. However, its price tag lets it down - if it was £100 cheaper it'd be much easier to recommend but, currently, it's just a bit too expensive. ®
