Works pretty well

Summary: This player worked well except for the clunky interface. It took too long to get to where you were going. I really liked the fact that you could integrate a hard drive into it and used that function often. I ended up replacing it with a Roku and connecting to my home pc with it. We use Amazon for most of our purchases and I update my reviews if anything changes with the products. I do this so other Amazon users can get a real feel for the life of the product.
Summary: I have been using this media player for the past several months. It integrates well with my television and internet capabilities such that it is easy to understand and utilize. There have been no problems with the unit and I am totally pleased with it's performance.
Summary: I did not realize this product is almost 3 years old. It does not play modern AAC sound files or the newer MP4 files. Having to re format my files to work on this machine. Cheap price and now I know why.
Pros: Shared file over the network works amazing. My 55 year old mother (who is quite tech savvy) could use it with easy. All she had to do was switch it on and point at the shared folder on the laptop all from the onscreen menu, and viola, it plays her movies
Cons: Hangs a bit, now and then. No Wifi integrated.
