Summary: i'm starting to love asus products! i already love the 2013 nexus 7 that asus made with google and now this. it literally plays just about anything i throw at it! i have an external hdd filled with all kinds of video files (mkv, avi, mp4, wmv, divx, etc) and it managed to play everything with exception to a few very large wmv files but i'm totally fine with that! most of the files i play anyway are mkv and mp4.
Summary: I bought this for use at trade shows. This is excellent for playing pretty much any video format saved on SD / XD card or USB flash drive. The latest firmware update is just perfect. You create a folder called AUTOPLAY and then add as many videos as you like. The player loops all those videos as soon as its powered. No play / repeat / reset - nothing ! Just turn the player on and the videos loop seamlessly.
Summary: First off, I have been an owner of many DVD/Blu-Ray units that "support" video files. My Sony Blu-Ray player has about 80% success rate playing any video I download via USB port. As you know, 80% don't cut it. I was tired of converting videos/shows/movies on my computer to another format to view on the tv via Blu-Ray player. So my hunt began. After reading many media player forums, this unit came up on many postings. So I started checking user reviews of this.
Summary: This is a rock solid device that plays any format that I throw at it. I bought an additional one as a gift. Highly recommended. I wish we could get the OPLAY plus in the US. WIFI would have been nice.
Summary: I bought this for my birthday in December. I have 3 1.5 TB Toshiba hard drives and this little media player has played every movie file I have thrown at it. My wife and kids like it so much that now I will have to buy another one so I will have one when I travel. I have read all the negative comments about the remote and can tell you from my own experience that I have not had any problems with a lag and it works 6 -10 feet from the box itself.
