CMC3000 Platinum Network HD Multimedia Center surfaces

The CMC3000 Platinum Network HD Multimedia Center is only the latest entry into the overcrowded market for media player / streamer boxes, and has some extra features to set it apart from the competition –  the time-shift TV recording capability,1080p playback, DLNA/UPNP client and NAS / BitTorrent features. Hardware wise, the box include the now standard HDMI 1.3 connector along with SPDIF optical for surround sound, Ethernet, optional wireless, 2 USB ports and a memory card adapter. What is missing though is the support for today’s popular web clients as Pandora, Netflix, YouTube, Flickr, etc, support that most of its competitors have. How do you think it compares against more popular media streamers like WD TV Live HD Plus, Viewsonic VMP75 already reviewed on our website?

The CMC3000 media streamer is available for sale at Amazon in several flavors, including with 500Gb and 1TB storage. The 1TB version ships for $238.
