Exactly what I wanted

Summary: I copy all my DVDs to disk. For a while, I used my TV as a second monitor, and simply changed the default sound device to the television when I wanted to watch something. That worked alright, but this works much better.
Summary: Greetings, First of all, I really like Western Digital. I use their Live Wire product and have been enjoying the WD Live TV Hub for some time now. The company has great customer service, which is a rarity in this space. I would not hesitate to buy a WD product in the future.
Summary: The unit is small, compact and very portable making it easy to share your media. It easily hooks up to any TV monitor, laptop or PC network and will play media from any drives on your network. Plays many different media types and has great built in streaming services.
Summary: Been using this for two months now and I now have my library of over 100 digital movies on it. This device will play anything and everything I throw on it along with the audio codecs, subtitles and audio tracks.
Summary: I have used the TV Live Hub connected to my WD network share and have found the product very unreliable. The unit frequently returns.

Summary: We live outside of the US but we still want streaming video content. Netflix and many other providers do not allow streaming outside of the US. We use the WD in conjunction with a VPN router (purchased from StrongVPN) to stream content outside of the US.
Summary: This product is amazing, to say the least. I'm not sure how it compares with other similar devices, but as a first time owner of this kind of thing.. It has forever changed the way I view media. As a person who is a big fan of streamlining and saving space, this was made for me.
Summary: At $164, this product is a steal. A TB 2.5" drive alone would hit around $100, making the unit itself cheaper than a Roku player. It supports nearly any type of media you can throw at it, and even supports higher bit rate HD files and MKVs.
Summary: This is what Apple TV would be without all the corporate control and with a substantial amount of built-in storage. It'll play most any video file stored on your network, available on a DLNA media server, or you can store video files in the device itself on its 1TB hard drive.
