Summary: I play with media players since several years ago. I'm using the air now at home and I'm very happy with this devices. I used Asus, WD and Mica devices in the last 3 years. My bluray/dvd collection (more than 500 disks) is now available in external USB disks and a Synology DS413 NAS.
Summary: This is the second Asus media player that I purchased. In 2009 I purchased the Asus HDP-R1 which is similar to this media player but lacking the air capability and it is an older generation product. I was happy with the HDP-R1 and figured a next generation player would be better.
Summary: Don't waste your money if you want tyo use WiFi. Its WiFi capacity sucks. I tested other nearby devices (laptops/netbooks/TV) with WiFi, same position as this device, they all work fine streaming same content. This device cannot keep decent signal.
Very buggy device, does the bare minimum but no more

Summary: I bought this little box instead of a HTPC because I really only needed it stream some material from a NAS on my home network. Overall it works (barely) but is extremely buggy. It plays about 80% of the content I have, but it there doesn't seem to be any rules about what it will play back and what...
Summary: The O!play Air works as advertised, to a degree. If you have Windows 7 64 bit, there is a problem with this device being able to access various files on your HDD. I found this out after I couldn't access a different HDD in my computer. It kept coming up asking to enter a login & password.
