Easy to use, not what I wanted though

Summary: This unit is very easy to set up and syc up with your computer. On the tv screen it comes up just like an 'explore' window on your computer with files and sub-files. Somehow I was expecting something a little more automated than that, but it works just fine.
Summary: I don't want to repeat too much what others have already listed. The unit works great for playing your home videos you converted to DVDs just like you're using a DVD player and you don't need to convert any files(provided they are in the standard DVD format ifo, VOB etc) them just copy them off your...
Summary: This is a great player with high def and HDMI capabilities. This player does have a few downsides though. For one the remote is tiny and easy to lose. When you try to scroll through your downloaded media titles, the player tries to play the feature in like a picture in picture mode and it really...
Summary: First the good stuff: This is a nice looking unit that does a really good job of playing videos off of an attached USB drive. I originally bought the unit so that I could rip my kids' movies onto a USB drive and break the cycle of turning all of their DVDs into scratched-up $20 coasters.
Summary: The FAT+ is a nice device for playing media files. So far of the 50 or so files I have played the picture quality was excellent and sound was good. Sound volume tends to be a little low so I have to crank up the volume. It only had trouble playing one particular file.
Summary: One of the main features I wanted this device for was the ability to play HD videos (Matroska MKV format) over the network from my computer in another room. Out of the box, we were able to connect to the networked computer and see all files we were interested in playing.
Summary: Just for the records, I am facing the same issue the previous reviewer is facing, after last firmware update. No access to Internet and date setup appearing everytime I turn the device on. It must be something related to the last software update.
Summary: I've got three of these and they aren't bad for the price I paid. They will play nearly anything I throw at them and stream nicely from other network devices. Netflix performance is fine too. UI is clunky compared to some other devices.
Variety of Video Formats and Netflix outweigh the MISERABLE Remote and interface.

Summary: What I Was Looking For: I saw media boxes out there that streamed Netflix (Roku) and boxes out there that could play my HD media files and ripped DVD files (popcorn hour) but I was looking for a media box that could do both.
Summary: Cons: ' No scheduling option ' No saving of search terms ' Weak remote power; remote has to pointed directly at the device or keep changing the batteries ' No controls on the device itself; have to use the remote. ' Limited fixed number of media sites to choose from.
