  1. Great article. I did a review on my website ( of the Sony SMP-N100. I didnt think much of it but I am excited to take a look at the N200 as soon as it is released. I like your website design too. Is it WordPress? What add on are you using to get the Daily News subscription feature/service. I would be interested in finding out.
