Asus

Rodney H., Newegg

  • Summary: Applied for the rebate and took 10% discount with a promise the rebate would be mailed to me within 8-10 days. It has been sitting on their website for weeks and found out today it may be mailed out July 3rd. That's a month after the date that they received the application.
  • Pros: Very nice media player
  • Cons: None

I've had it

John B., Newegg
15 April 2010
  • Summary: Bought this thing in January. You would think that it would work ok by now!
  • Pros: Works, but don't change anything on your network when it does!!!
  • Cons: Worked when I had an XP machine on my network. Now I don't (win7) and now I have to jump through hoops to get it working again. I'm tired of messing with it. Just connect to my share and show a movie! Please! I've gone through the updates and I get a little hope, but it just won't work nicely. Ha...

Ugh...

Brent W., Newegg
19 December 2009
  • Summary: Unless you feel like being a part of Asus's QA team, avoid this device at all costs.
  • Pros: Will play FLAC and VOB files...when it's working.
  • Cons: I'm using version 1.17P of the firmware; however, this thing is still incredibly buggy: First, I keep loosing sound. Also, it seems to reset to a low resolution whenever I restart. Aside from being buggy, this thing is just a pain to use. For example, to watch a movie you have to make the followi...

Do NOT buy! HDMI issues, ASUS Support nonexisting

Ryan F., Newegg
15 November 2009
  • Summary: Go with something like a WDTV Live or Xtreamer if you want a quality product with actual support from the company. Now I am stuck with a $100 paperweight since Newegg wants to charge me with a %15 restocking fee to get a refund on the piece of junk!
  • Pros: This started out as a good player, yes it plays everyone of the video/audio formats I have tried, WHEN it works.
  • Cons: After the first couple of times using this player, Everytime I would turn it back on it would default to 480P? It would stay on this until I unplugged/replugged the unit. Now I have audio dropouts, 1080p issues, and not being able to stream files over the network, and now the USB port does not wo...

Win7 64bit

Steve Anderson, Amazon
9 May 2010
  • Summary: Does not network well with Windows7 64bit. After trawling the internet trying to resolve this issue, I gave up. there was no way I was using the registry hacks that are found via google to try resolve this problem as that was opening a major security issue on my wireless network.

Avoid

Chris, Amazon
9 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought this so that I could stream .mkv (and similar) files from computer to widescreen tv. The playback was very poor, what would be in stunning hd on my monitor became a low res pixelated image on screen. MP4 files were the only ones which would play properly at high res.

Just doesn't do what it's meant to.

Justin Beamish, Amazon
9 May 2010
  • Summary: I hoped this would be so much more. But unfortunately not. All media players at this price seem to be a bit glitchy so take your pick. Obviously I can only speak from my experiences. Pros; -A step up from my old £20 usb ported dvd/xvid player -erm.... -Price Cons; -Clunky interface.
