Not for watching movies
30 January 2015
Summary: Terrible doesn't come close to describing this piece of junk. Video has constant drop outs. Updated firmware, no change. What good is it if you can't watch videos/movie with it? Totally Unacceptable. On the same network cable, my WD TV Live has no video drop outs and plays perfect video.
Summary: KIDS LOVE IT, works great as an in car DVR. i copied movies from our Tivo onto a seagate Go Flex drive plugged the unit into the vehicles auxiliary ports and presto hours of TV shows and movies for the road. this was a life saver for our road trips.
Summary: It works and gets the job done, well priced an arrived quickly, I will definatly reccomend this unit to my friends However after 1 month >>>One of 2 failed and I have not recieved return auth.
fine as a stand alone, terrible with portable drive

Summary: I have had this unit for over a year and have the latest firmware. Neutral: While the interface is a bit clunky it is logically organized and as is good as it can get w/o keyboard. Good: Plays almost everything. Connects to netflix, but at this point what doesn't?
Summary: I have been using this product for six months from now. Bought this mainly to watch my home videos from my Seagate external hard drive. Was not happy with it in the beginning, it took some time for me to understand the problems and find solutions.
Love this little box , Netflix interface is a let down

Summary: Have been using the goflex tv for a few weeks now. I haven't had any problems with it playing any file type I've ran through it. It plays ISOs of dvds with full dvd menu, plays vob files, mkv avi everything ,, I really like the fact that the goflex hard drives fit inside the box , more aesthetic...
Summary: I purchased this unit about 3 months ago and it works great! I have it connected via ethernet over power adapter to my router upstairs. It sees my Dlink UPNP ShareCenter NAS, where I store my archived DVD collection in .mp4 (h.264) format, music and photos.
Summary: As a drive reader/player, this device is excellent! However, if you're looking for a Netflix player, stick with your Wii or computer/iPad. Set up for Netflix is slow and it takes an entire day to actually register and have your account recognized.
