Review: Western Digital TV Live Hub

Wired
14 November 2011
  • Excerpt: It all started with Netflix. As the DVDs-by-mail service began its move into internet streaming, it quickly realized people didn’t want to sit in front of a PC to watch videos. So, Netflix teamed up with Roku to develop the first Roku box, a small Wi-Fi enabled set top box that streamed Netflix videos (along with other streaming content) to TVs. As bandwidth to the home mushroomed, Roku boxes began streaming video in 1080p HD about a year later.

WD TV Live Hub (1TB)

CNET
19 August 2011
  • Summary: While it lacks integrated Wi-Fi and is more expensive than the Roku or Apple TV , the WD TV Live Hub's combination of snazzy interface and built-in 1TB hard drive will appeal to advanced users who have a lot of existing files they want to view on an HDTV or stream to other PCs on a network.
  • Pros: Media streamer/server with 1TB of file storage built in; supports up to 1080p video playback; nice onscreen interface; streams a variety of Internet video and audio services, including Netflix, YouTube, and Pandora, via Ethernet connection; attractive onscreen interface; good HD video quality on channels and programming that support it; supports a wide variety of video codecs; two USB ports for connecting devices and storage drives; acts as a networked drive that's ca...
  • Cons: No built-in wireless; ever cheaper Blu-ray players offer many of the same Internet-viewing and home streaming options plus disc playback; most advanced options will require an expert user to fully exploit.

Western Digital TV Live Hub Review

ThinkComputers
13 July 2011
  • Summary: Final Thoughts From all of the media players I have seen in the past year the Western Digital TV Live Hub is one of the best.  The first thing that stands out is the user interface.  Every other media player we have looked at has some crap basic interface.  They are hard to navigate, they look ugly and the features are just not there.  With the WD Live TV Hub the interface is just gorgeous and extremely easy to navigate.
  • Pros: – Small compact design, – 1TB hard drive included, – Beautiful user interface, – Easy to use, – Plays pretty much any type of media, – Included online services
  • Cons: – No AV cables included, – Weird online service issue on our unit

Expert Review

  • Summary: In the beginning Western Digital gave us the WD TV which was a great little media player but required the user to bring their own media and also didn’t support any sort of networking. Western Digital did release several other versions with variety of added features but the Live Hub really feels like it got the best of the entire lineup, it really feels like it should be the main piece of your home entertainment setup.

WD TV Live Hub and WD Photos App Review

24 May 2011
  • Summary: The WD TV Live Hub was my first exposure to a network set top box for my living room – and it has left an overall positive impression on me. Of course, the Live Hub does a lot of other things with media streaming and online services, but there are a lot of game consoles and Blu-ray players that do those things as well.
