Changed my media experience

  • Summary: I've been extremely pleased with my WD TV Live Hub and have now recommended the box to multiple friends and family, all of whom are also pleased. It makes media simple and yet powerful.

Pretty good product but has a few flaws

Fox Rivers, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • 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.

Unstable, slow and unreliable

Gregory Franz, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • 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.

Quirky, but does the job

hardwired, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • 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.

Perfect portable media center

R.C. "Riptor", Amazon
7 October 2012
  • 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.

Very functional! I bought two!

WhatsTheHurry?, Amazon
5 October 2012
  • 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.

Does exactly what I want! - when it wants to. :(

Commbubba19, Amazon
26 September 2012
  • Summary: I recently setup a DLNA server wirelessly connected to my home network. I was watching content from the sever using my xbox 360 but my girlfriend was annoyed by how many menus needed to be navigated and having to use a game controller.

Does NOT support large libraries

J. Obrien "jay6678", Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: Just a warning to all potential buyers: this device has a large 1 TB drive, but it can only be used for storing relatively small numbers of large videos (e.g. movie RIPS), and cannot be used to store large (300 gig+) libraries of photos and music.

wonderful streamer and hub

CV Alkan, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this 1 TB hub (not wifi!) and the companion WD Live TV plus player (wifi). I won't bore you with the details as many previous reviewers have done a phenomenal job describing these products in great detail. I've had these 2 products for about 2 weeks and I cannot believe how well they work.

Here is my take of this great product.

Rick C "Rick", Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: Ok, I have held off writing this for a long time. I have had my WD Live Hub for 15 months now. I have read good reviews and bad reviews but I wanted to wait with my review until I was sure how well this product would hold up.
