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: 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: 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: I finally ordered this item from my wish list. I've had it about a week and it is one of the best purchases i've made.I added a 2 terabyte fantom external drive which i loaded with all my pic music and movies,the oplay detected it and plays everything i needed it to and more.
Great idea; lacks customer service; not usable for secure wireless home network;

Summary: Have had it for a couple of months; reads just about everything off my NAS over wireless network... BUT: it forgets my wireless settings EVERY DAY! And since I don't want to re-type 20+ characters every day (or teach the kids how to do it), it's borderline useless.
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.
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: Purchased this about a week ago and so far so good. I recently decovered that when trying to connect to network (windows 7) it can't recognize it. Has something to do with the new security feature of window 7.
Summary: Excellent product, just as promised, works great, haven't found video formats that doesn't play, the image quality is great, at last I can watch my HD movies and clips, the only thing is that indeed the remote control is sometimes unresponsive when playing media, specially HD media, but I guess that...
