Summary: I am quite aware that people are not pleased with this item for streaming and if that is what you need it for buy something else. I needed a media player, that is,I wanted to plug in the USB of a 1 or 2 TB HD into a player that has HDMI out to my stereo, home theater, or TV.
Summary: I got this at Fry's for $20 and for me it was a great deal. I already had a Panasonic TV so just the remote and batteries were worth at least half that. It also plays Flac and a couple things my others dont. It was very easy to set up and just the netflix and you tube make it worth it to me.
Summary: Worst streamer I have ever used. I own Roku and Sony. Only about six aps not including Amazon. Painfully slow. Tried to use it on Pandora and it took 5 minutes to load a song. Even the Chrome for $35 is better. Has TV controls but only for Panasonic TV's. User interface awful.
Summary: This is the first media streaming device that I have purchased. Yes, I would purchase it again and Yes, I will probably buy another one for another TV. I am only giving it 4 stars for now... I've had no problem connecting the media player to my Panasonic TV.
Summary: I bought this as it specifically stated it would work with Amazon Instant Video and Amazon is no where on the system. I had a firmware update as soon as I connected to my wifi but it did not show up after that. DLNA works but is very VERY choppy.
Summary: It took me a while to get it working right but eventually I got it working. This product is only for android devices 4.2 or above. I like the feature of being able to wirelessly mirror my tablet to my big screen. Remember that only some phones and tablets work with this.
Summary: If you are intelligent then this device will please you. If you are someone who prefers your devices to do the thinking for you (apple fan) then you will not even know how to work this one. It is perfect for me because I only use Netflix, vudu, and YouTube.
