  • Summary: Update 1: I am changing my review from 5 stars to 2 stars. This thing is just plain awful. Shows files that arent even on my drive, SLOW INDEXING, remote is worthless....overall junk. Returning it soon. If you really want a HTPC, build one yourself and run Boxee.....

Not that great

  • Summary: Im a computer guy, but Im also 40. I have had enough with the tinkering. If I wanted to tinker, I'd put back the Myth TV computer next to my TV. I paid for this because I want it to work, and someone else to do the tinkering for me. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

Mediocre at best, lacks search feature

  • Summary: I was having problems with movies disengaging while being played on my Western Digital multimedia player (WD). (They'd just disengage & go back to the main menu, for no apparent reason. When I'd go back to play them, they'd restart from the beginning).

Unstable

  • Summary: I really wanted to like the FAT+. I wanted a player that would support Netflix streaming, streaming content from my PC, and play files via a hard drive or flash drive. Unfortunately, the FAT+ did none of these well.

Not up to par for Netflix

Voyager, Amazon
25 October 2009
  • Summary: I have a Sony Blu-ray player (BDP-N460) that I had been using for Netflix streaming content but as more and more titles are becoming available in HD I found that I was experiencing too many episodes of pausing to download content (i.e. buffering).

OK until stopped working

  • Summary: I was somewhat satisfied with this device until it stopped working. The first unit just failed to boot at one point, and I could not do anything about it - reinstalling firmware did not help.
