Summary: Let me start by saying I did not buy this from Amazon. I bought it from a local B&M. I also don't use the net features. I bought this exclusively for the USB port. What I do is put media on a flash drive and plug it in. For the price, you just can't go wrong. I have had many hours of enjoyment from this little thing. I have used several different brands of flash drives. They all work fine. I've even used an external WD hard drive (250 gigs) and it works just fine too.
Summary: We are very happy with our Netflix box as we cancelled our Sky, this box is worth every penny as we can watch lots of films when we like Although I must say you can't get Corrie, Eastenders, E4, Or Judge Judy!
Really good for its price, you get a SmartTV for less than $30

Summary: Pros: 1. Good wi-fi reception. I have a router downstairs and a TV with a media player upstairs. No problems related to poor reception so far. 2. Really good picture quality on YouTube and when playing movies from the USB stick. I have nothing to say about Netflix, I am not subscribed at the moment. 3. Simple and straightforward YouTube navigation. 4. Dedicated buttons for Netflix and some other services. Cons: 1.
Summary: The box works (Unlike the Habitat box for which I am still trying to get my money back!). The one disappointment is that when I went onto Netflix it says that I have a free 30 day trial for it (this was not mentioned in the purchase information!
Summary: Bought this item to watch netflix on (cheaper than a PS2). Does what it says on the tin! Very compact unit, but as others have said, the remote is very tiny and not very good quality really compared to the unit itself. Easily lost i would expect.
Summary: 1. Works out of the box 2. Easy set up and connection but the interface is poor as you have to select one letter at a time from the on screen grid. 3. It is supplied with a horrible tiny fiddly remote control. 4. Philips TV remote can be used for navigation and control once the device is going. 5. Netflix direct connection is a joy, select the red button and previously entered account details allow instant connection. 6.
Summary: Nicely packaged small box which fits in nicely with the rest of my tv setup. Connects to the tv via hdmi and also has a USB port. I connected it wirelessly and was up and running Netflix in a few minutes. It has a very small remote which can easily be mislaid and may not be very useful if you have quite large hands. Overall a good product at a fair price.
Summary: Netflix has an increasingly good selection of things to watch, so this has proved very handy - I`m really impressed with how quick and easy to set up it was, once you get used to the remote control, and by the strength of the wifi connection. It`s a very small box, about four inches square, so will fit alongside your other boxes. It picked up my wifi signal quickly, and I`ve not had any problems at all when watching anything from Netflix.
