    "Surprisingly Awesome!"

    September 28, 2010  |   By sublime217

    Version: PS3 Media Server 1.20.409b

    Pros

    It's simple, it allows my PS3 to play music from my computer that's across the room. No need for wires or putting some program on a flash drive and uploading it onto the PS3. I love its simplicity.

    Cons

    It took a little trial and error to figure it out, but nothing to complain about. The audio quality isn't the best, but it still works. Plus there's a couple of annoying videos on you tube to help explain it.
    I haven't tried it on other devices yet.

    Summary

    Why not? It's better than putting a bunch of music directly on the PS3 that takes up space.

    I would recommend this to a friend, family, and lover.

    However I feel someone needs to have little understanding or sense of technology, but if you already own a PS3, computer, etc then you'll figure it out.

    "Fantastically good - especially at the price!"

    August 10, 2010  |   By ndbsound

    Version: PS3 Media Server 1.20.409b

    Pros

    Don't be fooled by the name, this freeware Java DLNA server works with many different devices.Will automatically find any device it can talk to on the network, and stream media from your mac.Transcoding looks excellent - better than the PS3 itself.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have aspect ratio control within the software interface. Other than that, can't wait to see what the next build holds

    Summary

    Great product. The development team have cracked the nut of producing a simple DLNA server that just works well without the user needing to be a computer scientist. Full marks!

    "The best media server for PS3!"

    June 21, 2009  |   By chrisvai

    Version: PS3 Media Server 1.10.5

    Pros

    Streams DTS, AC3 flawlessly.
    Transcode on the fly when needed.
    No hassle in configuring and meddling with the set up
    Plays subtitles in PS3

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    This is the best and most simple media server that I've ever used on PS3. Kudos to the developer. Really an excellent product. I've used other products which require some tweaking and tedious configurations to get it to do the basic stuff like playing ac3 encoded avi with external srt or sub. PS3 Media Server rocks!

    "Blown away my friend"

    June 13, 2009  |   By LEE251169

    Version: PS3 Media Server 1.10.5

    Pros

    Effortlessly and instantly converts everything I throw at it then beams it to my PS3 in glorious Hi Def and 5.1 Surround sound.

    Cons

    Nothing you idiot.

    Summary

    I spent ages looking for ways to convert hi def mkv files into something my ps3 could handle and never found anything that did a satisfactory job. I then happened upon this product and was completely blown away by the results.
    Usually I would have to leave my mac running for six hours to convert an averaged sized hi def movie. This however transcodes on the fly. My entire movie collection was available instantly to my ps3.
    Fair play to the authors. This is the dogs danglies.

    "Excellent Media Server"

    March 11, 2009  |   By b0c

    Version: PS3 Media Server 1.10.5

    Pros

    After 10 minutes I could enjoy all my mp3's, jpeg's and movies saved on my pc on my PS3.

    Cons

    I had to go and get a cable for better speed.

    Summary

    If you want to use your PS3 as a Media Center, playing all your Media Files from your Computer for free- this is the way to go.
