From the web:


Sony's SMP-N200 streaming-media box supports Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, Vudu, and Pandora. It's also DLNA-compliant, so it can stream media from your home network, including Xvid and MKV files. The external design is also considerably improved over last year's, especially the new simple remote.

As you'd expect, the Sony SMP-N200 has both an Ethernet port and built-in Wi-Fi for accessing online content. When the SMP-N200 was announced, Sony put a lot of emphasis on the fact that it can handle 3D content, but we don't consider it to be an important feature on a streaming-media box. (There's not enough 3D content, and there aren't enough buyers interested in 3D.)

A streaming-media box is all about which streaming services are supported, and the SMP-N200 does a good job of filling up our chart.

 

Streaming-media features
Netflix Yes   Pandora Yes
Amazon Instant Yes   Napster No
Vudu Yes   Picasa No
Hulu Plus Yes   Facebook No
MLB.TV No   Twitter No
YouTube Yes   Weather No
Other: Sony Video Unlimited, Sony Music Unlimited, CinemaNow, Crackle, Slacker, Moshcam, NPR, plus dozens of additional niche video services

The SMP-N200 really shines with video services, and the combination of Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, and Vudu will certainly be attractive to the cord-cutter crowd. The music side also has some interesting options, including NPR, Slacker, and Moshcam. (Moshcam is actually a video service that streams live concerts for free.)

In addition to all the streaming content available over the Web, the SMP-N200 is also DLNA-compatible and supports playback of several different file types off its USB port as well. The complete list of file types is available on Page 27 of the manual (PDF), and the important ones include MKV, Xvid, and MP3. We actually had pretty good success playing back a mishmash of content off a connected NAS drive, but you're best off searching user opinions on CNET and elsewhere if you're looking for compatibility with specific media types.

We'll also quickly note that there's an Internet browser, but the experience is so slow and frustrating that we doubt we'd ever use it.

 

Connectivity
HDMI output Yes   Analog audio output Stereo
Component video output Yes   Digital audio outputs Optical
Composite video output Yes   USB ports 1

Most home video devices, like the Apple TV, are moving toward HDMI-only connectivity, but the Sony SMP-N200 still offers a full set of video outputs. That's good news if you have an older TV without HDMI, but it does add to the size of the box. There's also a USB port on the side, which is handy for playing back a USB drive full of digital content.

Performance
Performance was overall excellent with the SMP-N200. We had no problem streaming media over our home network or over the Internet, using both the wireless and wired connection. Although the SMP-N200 doesn't technically support 1080p Netflix streams, we found the HD Netflix titles to offer very good image quality anyway. Of course, streaming-video quality and network performance depend a lot on your broadband connection and home networking conditions, but we had consistently solid playback with the SMP-N200.
