D-Link MoCA Spotted at Fry’s!

Another sign that MoCA is gaining momentum, recently spotted at the local Fry’s, the D-Link DXN-221 MoCA Bridge Kit aka Mediabridges !  Located right next to the NETGEAR MCAB1001 MoCA Kits as well as competing powerline and 11N bridges, the D-Link MoCA kits give users another option for building a high speed entertainment network for HD movie streaming, gaming and entertainment.  MicroCenter will also be carrying the D-Link products and since they are all MoCA compatible, you’ll be able to choose different brands to add to your MoCA network.

Look for more brands and new MoCA products coming later this year!

First MoCA Bridge Review – Thumbs Up!

Netgear MCAB1001

 

SmallNetBuilder.com just did the first review on the MoCA Ethernet-to-Coax bridge from Netgear (MCAB1001) and gave it a glowing thumbs up.  They hooked up a pair of MoCA bridges and ran them through some difficult HD video tests in both the lab and in a home scenario and came up with this summary:

Simply put, MoCA is the only “alternative networking” technology that I have laid hands on that can reliably stream HD video—even 1080p. Of course, my limited test enviroment in no way presented a difficult test environment. But then again, my wireless environment is clean and so is my powerline. And neither of those technologies have been able to do what the NETGEAR MCA1001s did.

Wow, that’s a nice start to what will probably be a number of reviews that will be written on the new batch of MoCA products coming out.  With all the new HD video streaming stuff that was shown at CES, it will be interesting to see how well the new HDTVs, Bluray Players, Tivos and Slingboxes work on a MoCA home network.
