Netgear packs the NeoTV Max with the bare essentials to get you up and going. Besides the main unit, the box contains an Audio/Video cable, Power Cable and dual-functioning remote control. For less than $80, we really aren’t complaining, but potential customers need to know that there is neither a HDMI cable nor Ethernet cable that comes in the box so make sure your television is ready.
If we take a quick tour around the outside of the NeoTV MAX, we see the front is very non-descript with only a NeoTV logo on the front and a very small power light towards the right side of the box. For anyone who is worried about bright components, the NeoTV MAX will not concern you at all.
On the side, there is a USB port so you can connect your external drive with all off your multimedia files. Over on the back, you will find an HDMI port, Ethernet port, MicroSD slot, reset pin slot, AV port, and power. The AV port is used when your television or monitor does not have an HDMI and you need to connect the NeoTV using composite cables (red, white, yellow). Netgear actually packs a set of these cables in the box so that you can use.
