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: 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: I got this model because of it's wireless N support and needed to add some media playback capability without wires. I got a new Netgear Wireless N router and everything worked flawlessly. (after the firmware upgrade).
Plays all formats but has many rooms for improvements

Summary: Knowing all the user feedback and shortcoming of this product, I decided to give it a try because this is the only player in the market that plays almost all the formats that I used. The cons of this product include 1. The wireless setup is definitive a pain.
Summary: The product has been great for playing back all of the file types i have thrown at it. The documentation is not very good. FYI - if you are going to enter a WEP key the screen for it only has hexadecimal (not ascii) so convert your wep key if needed.
Summary: I Purchased this device and bought it to India. Since I used Indian Credit card for purchase, I couldn't able to claim $20 mail-in-rebate :( I was mainly looking for HD Player with N/W connectivity. I was excited to read the manual, but for my surprise, there is not enough documentation !!
Summary: The Asus O'Play Air does the job for me. I've read some reviews around the Internet complaining about what this unit doesn't do. I'm not sure what those individuals expect for this price. This is exactly what I wanted to stream audio and video from my laptop to my home theater/audio system.
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.
