"Out of the box, the DSM-750 blows the dinky Linksys DMA 2100 out of the water. Solid construction and a nice looking peripheral that doesn't look like cheap plastic in my living room. The DMA 2100 has no optical SPDIF (RCA flavor digital SPDIF only) and worse, does not see Atheros based SSID's and probably some other brands. The DMA 2100 only has two antennae. D-Link has all the ports and three antennae, which really helps with wireless connectivity ."
A Pinto and a Ferrari will get you from A to B, but you're going enjoy the ride in the Ferrari alot more Seems like Linksys has made a Pinto. I'm surprised Microsoft hasn't given manufacturers a reference design to use. It would seem to make for a much more consistent user experience.
