Summary: I bought it thinking that it would be a good upgrade from the screenplay plus 1gig. I was mistaken. I love gadgets and consider myself quite gadget savvy but this is by far the worst product I've ever come across. The simple AVI file on the plus cannot work on the director edition.
Summary: I'm very disappointed with this product. Unfortunately I did not read carefully the others reviews. If I had do that, I'm sure I would not have purchased this product 1) It is very difficult that Win XP, Vista or 7, recognized in just one usb conection these interfase.
Summary: 1. Will not play DVD folders as a DVD. So you have to go in the video subfolder and play the first file. Then the other files will follow BUT with a 3 second black BREAK in between. 2. Same applies to Bluray folders. God forbid you change your mind and try to go back to select another.
Summary: This product is NOT ready for market for it still have many bugs. The most prominent one is that it does not support .IFO image so there is NO DVD menu. You can still play those video files of the DVD and at the end of one file, the next one will be played automatically, HOWEVER, there is a 3-4...
Summary: I bought this device in the 1TB version. As a hard drive it is good but as a media player it is horrible. DON'T BUY IT! The graphical User Interface (GUI) very bad in grey format, very slow GUI.
Summary: I had a Screenplay Pro for a few years and it is dying, so I got the Director HD to replace it. I didn't realize it didn't record video like the Screenplay Pro, but I guess that's my fault. Beyond that, it is little more than a Network Harddrive at this point.
Summary: I have a 'Iomega Screenplay Pro 1TB'. I thought this is a newer version of that and could be more effective/interactive/better. But I'm very disappointed. 'Pro' had an option of video recording and I knew this doesn't have it. I expected it to have better interactive menu but it didn't have.
Summary: I bought this device in the 2TB version. As a hard drive it is good but as a media player it is horrible. DON'T BUY IT! The graphical User Interface (GUI) for video and music are fine but photos gets a completely different GUI. Why?
To call this a 'Brick' would insult quality bricks everywhere

Summary: Don't waste your money on this one, flush your money down the toilet instead, at least you may get some pleasure out of watching it go down the drain. Oh, I suppose it is 'adequate' if you do not want to listen to more than 30 minutes of music, or watch 15 minutes of a movie...
Summary: I would not recommend this product as I was never able to get it fully set up and connected to my home network. Out of the box, it connected via HDMI to my HDTV and the menus displayed fine. That's as far as it ever got, because this device would not get recognized by my PC.
