The Power of One Infographic

Good all-rounder?

With pricing around £150 without a hard disk, which appears necessary to instal the software required for many of the streaming features, and no iTunes streaming support, the iXtreamer may not be the cheapest or most iFriendly option out there. However, it is a good media streamer with potential to evolve as the development community continues to improve some fairly unique features.

Some very useful features, but needs refinement

Verdict

So while the iXtreamer might not be feature the most complete range of integration to suit Apple iFans, for more casual iDevice users after compatibility with a neat bit of living room kit, it could well be just the job. Certainly, worth keeping an eye on as the software advances into something more polished. ®
