Not for HDMI Streaming

Summary: I purchased this product specifically for Netflix. Good and Bad news: Good News. On non HDMI, it works as advertised and provides a fairly clear picture. It was easy to set up and works great with my Avermedia HD EzRecorder Plus. Bad News.
Summary: The Good: it plays about anything you give it it reads both mac and pc formatted drives the mostly good goflex port, if you have the right drives for it. the ios app is better than the built in menus (thats just barely a 'good') acceptable bootup and loading times.
Summary: Ok, I'll admit it, I'm stumped. I got this because I thought I'd be able to show my art work and photos on my HDTV. But, the directions that come with it are vague and I haven't been have to figure out how to use it.
Summary: I bought this item thinking it was a great combination for a portable USB drive and would give my old Roku box a run for its money. Well, it only gave me a run for my money, wishing that I hadn't spent it. While the interface with the portable drive is seamless, a wifi connector is not included.
Summary: PROS: Unit is very small, maybe smaller then a paperback. Can read USBs for pics/videos (USB port) Can do Netflix, YouTube, Paramount, vTuner, Mediafly, Picasa, Flickr, Video Feeds (RSS), Text Feeds (RSS), Finance Widget, Weather Widget Gives you component & composite cables since both use a 3.5mm 3...
Summary: As said before, this device can play more files formats than WD media player, but some lack of features makes this device pretty anoying: - Share content: Plug this device into your network and you CANNOT access the USB HD connected to this UNIT.
Summary: This media player has one good thing going for it. It will play ISO files from DVD without issues and Bluray rips without issues most of the time. Now for the cons: 1) No GbE connection, so streaming Bluray rips is completely out of the question.
Summary: When I read on the side of the box that the Seagate played ISOs and then it did of the box with minimal effort I was very high on this product. However, I am never one to write a review without at least becoming familiar with the device. After three weeks of use this is what I found.
Summary: Purchased this product for Netflix and iso video files. So far streaming Netflix from this device has been a problem. Other devices don't have issue, but this device freezes a lot. Not sure if my product is defective or if this is consistent with other people.
Summary: This thing is really a good idea, especially for playing ultraportable harddrive movies. Fine for pictures. Terrible for WIFI. The dongle works, but always poor reception. Compared to a WII, which isn't great, the seagate device in not even close. The netflix connection is very poor.
