Specifications

The Uebo M200 has a HDMI 1.3 connection, component, and composite video connections. It supports multiple resolutions including 720p, 1080p, and 1080i. Tt supports most video and audio formats on the market. The WiFi adapter is optional and uses 802.11b/g/n speeds. The M200 bundle with the WiFi adapter is $149.99 and available right now.

In Use

The Uebo M200 is a very easy to connect device. I opted for testing the Uebo M200 with the optional wireless WiFi adapter since my TV is far from the router that could be connected to the standard Ethernet port. Setting the Uebo M200 up requires you to take it out of the box, plug in the power connect it to your TV, and then run through the set up for various functions. I connected my unit via HDMI.

The main thing I don't care for with the design of the Uebo M200 is that the USB port the wireless adapter uses is on the side of the device. That means if you have the Uebo M200 sitting on your entertainment system where you can see it you have to look at the adapter sticking out of the side of the device. I would like to see the USB ports on the back or a much smaller WiFi adapter offered.

Once you plug that WiFi adapter in, you have to go to the setup menus of the M200 and tell the device to connect to your network, enter you password for the network, and you are done. Entering the passwords is done with an onscreen keyboard and the wireless remote.

Once wireless was set up, I was able to start playing with the device. I went to YouTube and streamed some video from the site to my TV. My wireless router is about 30 feet from the living room where the Uebo M200 was set up. Despite showing signal strength that was in the middle of the strength meter there was a lot of lag and noticeable chop to the video streamed from YouTube. When using the file explorer feature of the device to access video on computers on my local network there was a lot of stuttering and lag in the 1080p resolution video playback.

This is strange considering I can sit in my living room and steam YouTube to my iPad with less lag than the Uebo M200 offered in my testing. The Uebo M200 has a BitTorrent client that you can use for downloading peer to per flies, I am not into BitTorrent so I didn’t use that feature. Streaming audio content was much better than the video content with good audio quality. I wish you could access the real web on the Uebo M200 and I really wish you could access Hulu using the device. Hulu is the website I most want to view on my TV. The issues I had with wireless streaming may not be a problem in your environment; wireless performance varies based on many factors. In all the Uebo M200 is very easy to set up and use and offers nice image and audio quality.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to set up
  • Wireless option for networking

Cons

  • USB port on the side leaves WiFi adapter sticking out
  • Stuttering video streaming in testing
 

Conclusion

I had issues with wireless streaming performance in my testing that may or may not be an issue for you. The Uebo M200 did have good video quality and audio on the videos I watched and is very easy to use overall.
