Summary: Bought this primarily for the feature to stream from PC/laptop to LG HDTV. Works with Win7 on laptop, but not XP on desktop. Would've given 5 stars if XP had worked. Also, reads MKV files on thumb drive that's plugged into Upgrader. Could not read such files if thumb drive is plugged directly into LG TV.
Summary: I am really happy that I bought the devices. Works perfect, and very useful. You can easily Pair Youtube, Share movie, music, and photo (via Nero MEDIA Home) from your server. This device worth every penny. The only FLAW is, the response time is slow and not too many APP for the Device in LG APP world.
Summary: I love the idea of being able to use my TV for more than just broadcast/cable TV. This little box does that! And it is the only one I have found that has an actual web browser (yes, you can type in URL's and go to any website) built in. My only compaint is the clunky remote (that's why there are 4 not 5 stars in my rating). It works but not quickly.
Works great for me...Wish I would have ordered this months ago!

Summary: I had this up and running out of the box within 8 minutes with a wired internet connection. The only reason I didn't use the wireless setup was because the instructions for doing so were on the CD that accompanies the unit, and I was too lazy to put in the disk and read it, and I had a long-enough ethernet/LAN cord to reach my router and it's no problem for me to hide the cord the way my living room is set up.
Summary: First the bad, LG has an ingenious feature on some of their devices called simplelink which allows you to use one remote on all your LG devices. Not sure what LG was thinking so I had to drop this device one star because they did not add the simplelink feature when they designed this little device. Someone at LG had a lapse in memory.
Summary: Works great if all you want is to watch Netflix. Also nice for watching your tube. The web browsing is tedious at best since typing is not the easiest thing to do with this device and browsing is very sluggish.
