Summary: This device is okay. It does read external hard drives but it freezes a lot and has to be restarted often. With Plex and other movie server options, I would steer clear of something like this if you have a computer that can run all of your movies through a server.
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.
Summary: What an impressive bit of kit. Plugged it into my router, acquired IP from DHCP, detected my uPNP NAS drive across the LAN, detected all the different media types and formats playing it first go! Great display, intuitive menus. Rather frustrated at having little or anything to adjust !!!
Summary: Product sort of works as advertised though interface is hard to use and takes a lot of going back and forth. The sad part is that the rebate process set up by ASUS is designed to capitalize on every little detail to deny you the rebate.
Summary: This is the best stuff if you want to play it all.. I personally bought it for the ease of Internet TV, specially for my dad which likes to watch Chinese channels. This got over 200+ Mandarin Channels MMS streams. Some annoying bugs.
Summary: I purchased this product because the Sony media player doesn't play some of my movie formats. It worked fine for that purpose. However, it looks like I can't access Netflix via this one, that was disapointing.
Summary: I've had the o!play air a while now and I can say that it's a love-hate relationship. Sometimes I feel like running out and chucking this at a bad driver, then going off to buy a Boxee Box, WD Live or even building an XBMC-based HTPC myself.
Summary: Not a very good product - but probably the best of all the video media players out there, which is not saying much. Best for playing things from the USB. Clumsy but usable to play media residing on local network - though each time you have to navigate through all the folders to reach the video you...
