D-Link Has the Mother's Day Gifts That Mom Will Treasure All Year Long

Say 'I Love You' With the Gift of Digital Entertainment

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - April 23, 2008) - Yes, moms love flowers, but this year consider a gift that will give her more than a few days of enjoyment. Does she love to take family photos with a digital camera? Is she a video buff or perhaps has discovered the joys of YouTube? D-Link, the leader in digital home entertainment, has some unique gift ideas that will delight mom on her special day.

Digital media players stream video, movies, TV, music and photos from a PC directly to the television -- either wired or wirelessly. Treat mom to the gift of sitting comfortably on the sofa and viewing all her photos and videos, plus a large assortment of Web-based movies, TV and other programming, from the comfort of the living room.

Digital photo frames are all the rage. These electronic frames can display hundreds of digital photos that are transmitted wirelessly and presented in slideshow format. Affordable and easy to use, these devices are perfect for loading up photos of the kids, grandchildren, family vacations and more. Internet-enabled frames make the perfect gift as they can be configured to display Internet feeds such as weather and traffic as well as receive pictures from remote locations, such as a relative in another state.

Here's an overview of the great digital entertainment gift ideas that D-Link has to offer for Mother's Day:

--  D-Link® MediaLounge® PC-on-TV (DPG-1200) -- The D-Link MediaLounge

    more -- using a wired or wireless connection.  D-Link PC-on-TV streams
    Internet content directly from the PC without the use of a proprietary
    player. It supports MPEG-4 plus AVI videos or DVD movies, and is compatible
    with PC media players, including iTunes, Nero, Windows Media Player, and
    RealPlayer*. With an easy to use included trackball remote, D-Link PC-on-TV

    frame rate.

    users with high-speed, wireless streaming and sharing of High-
    Definition (HD) and standard definition video, movies, digital photos
    and music -- virtually anywhere in the home, regardless of where the PC
    is located. The DSM-750 features D-Link's award-winning dual band draft
    802.11n technology for fast Wi-Fi performance, and includes cool,
    silent operation (no moving parts), a convenient remote control, an
    easy-to-navigate TV user interface for quick hassle-free browsing of
    digital content, HD video playback with digital surround sound, a USB

    storage device and 10/100 Ethernet connectivity.
--  D-Link MediaLounge Media Player (DSM-520) -- The D-Link MediaLounge
    DSM-520 with activeTV ONLINE offers similar PC media streaming capabilities
    as the DSM-750, but also offers access to thousands of Internet videos from
    websites in 14 countries. The device can also access videos, music and
    photos stored on PCs across a home network, a shared network storage
    device, as well as files stored on a USB flash drive, or external thumb
    drive via a USB 2.0 port.

    now available for pre-orders scheduled to ship in May. The perfect gift,
    this digital photo frame will allow users to view their favorite photos
    easily and conveniently virtually anywhere in the home -- providing a high-
    resolution 10" LCD display connected over a Wi-Fi home network. With a
    built-in wireless adapter, the DSM-210 makes it simple to drag and drop
    images into a "widget" on the computer desktop and watch the photos
    automatically appear in the photo frame as a slide show. The frame can also
    display weather, trivia, traffic reports and much more by managing the
    frame from the online portal -- www.internetphotoframe.com. The frame also
    supports popular photo sharing sites, including Flickr, Picasa and .MAC for
    accessing and displaying photos stored on the Internet anywhere throughout
    the home. The DSM-210 includes a motion detection feature that will turn
    the frame off and on when users move in and out of the room to save power,
    making it part of the growing D-Link Green™ family.
