After firmware update...

Mark J. Anspacher, Amazon
2 June 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Small, portable, plays many file formats, I/O connectors cover the basics. Cons: It runs HOT! Ships with outdated firmware, latest firmware update is from August 2010. Other thoughts: I've been using this player for about two months. Out of the box it worked fine with only minor setup required. However, last night when I turned it on I was suddenly getting B&W video.

Great Purchase, Worth the Money!

Dawn Haynes-Grimes, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: First I must say that I was a bit shocked when I came to write this review that the price for this device has doubled. I bought it for $29.99 around Thanksgiving. PLAYER: This little gadget works like a dream. I only download AVI(Xvid/Divx/AC3/MP3) files and this media player plays them flawlessly on my 24" flat screen. The audio is good, some files do play a bit lower than others and you have to turn up the volume but it was not the player, it depends on the file.

Should have studied more

  • Summary: Doesn't support .M4V format, so not useful for me. Love my WD-TV, guess there's a reason this was 1/2 the price. Picture looks good with photos and the limited content I had it supports. So, a 2 for me.

Nice product for cheap price

HUMAN, Amazon
17 July 2011
  • Summary: This is really a very nice product. Initially I was not getting the output at all and thought that it would not work or was faulty. It was not, when the product is connected to output the settings are at default and thus would not able able to reproduce the output. Once I figured that out, this small box works great. I use this to connect my 3M pocket projector and match movies etc from my 2TB HDD. This is great, some of the formates are not supported by this product.

Aver Media Player

Eric Wilson, Amazon
30 May 2011
  • Summary: I like the media player and its nice features. The free HDMI cable is nice also. The only thing the player really lacks is it doesn't play MP4's other than that its a nice player especially for the money.

This is not a HD media player, why complain about that?

Rocket Scientist, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: The manual or description nowhere says that this player can play HD video files. It do has HDMI output, and can output a 720p picture, but it is only for player menu and image display. Video playback is purely SD (1024x576 is not a HD, it's just native 16:9 SD). I've tried various video formats, here's the results: DIVX AVI (DIVX3-4-5-6) - All ok. ISO MPEG2 (720x576) - ok.

Falls Short

Bernard Robbins, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Small; NTFS for USB hard drives (meh); Remote; Wide range of outputs (will go from my HDTV to CRT in kids room to LCD in mini van). Cons: No internal storage (meh); No exFAT (Biggie: no support for <4GB files, most 720p files are ~6GB); No support for x264 MKV (vast majority of rip'd movies); No network. I didn't even get to play one movie since it wouldn't play a x264 MKV's. The menu did come up.

Good for stills, not so much for videos (especially on a large screen)

Bob Tobias "Robert Tobias", Amazon
6 April 2011
  • Summary: Bottom Line: Good for pictures anywhere or video files on a small screen. (To be fair, for the price this isn't all that bad. I bought it for a bit less than "the price" on sale so I feel even better.) The unit is small, about the size of a paperback book. I liked that it came with both a component cable (necessary because the player-side connection is non-standard) and an HDMI connector.
