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.
Summary: I waded thru specs, reviews, and comments on several media players before selecting the O!Play. I like the size, and the remote is very easy to handle, even at 68 years old. My wife and I, inlaws, neighbors, and neices and nephews have all had a chance to plug something into the O!

Summary: I tried the Western Digital TV Live before I purchased the Asus, and the only thing it has going for it is its smaller size. The O!Play beats it in every other regard I think. I have yet to find media that the O!Play does not play.
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...
