Thumbs down Where are the 5GHz media streamers?

http://www.pressreader.com/australia...90767/TextView

If a media streamer includes wireless networking capability, 5GHz wireless network connectivity should be the standard and not the exception.

And for 4K media devices, multi-stream Wireless-AC should also be the standard and not the exception - dual-band Wireless-N is good, but not good enough.

I have advocating for such features; if consumers raise their standards and are well-informed, they generally won't be disappointed with their purchase.

So you want everybody to pay for devices with expensive features they might not use adding unnecessary cost. What is the 4k source ? If its a disc there is no need to stream and if its over the internet then a consistent 15-20Mbps is required.

If consumers look for such features, they will generally be satisfied, including through none or very few AV rebuffering events.
