Best Media Streamers 2011

2011 is a year that marks the beginning of the change in how we consume media…movies, music, photos from hard copies onto streaming, streaming and more streaming. Whether we stream from Netflix or Pandora or from our own servers (where we ripped our own legally purchased movies), having everything at a touch of the button is more than simply convenience. As this site is dedicated to media streamers, we will compile a top 10 list containing the 10 best media streamers currently available on the market based on their advertised capabilities. Among the most important factors to be taken into account are DLNA support, internet clients, supported video formats and so on. We’ll try to list the best DLNA media player, best 1080p media player, best internet media streamer and the big prize will go to the best media streamer overall. I will also include a comparison table. Let the battle begin!
