Works pretty well

Stu Redman, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • 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.

Use it for Netflix

Terry Kortness, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: Great for netflix on line. Wife loves it and remote even controls volume on our stereo. For movie downloads,.. have yet to find a quality source and Hulu does not work as you cannot download from them. Would be nice if they worked out an agreement with Hulu. Other stuff on there is really nice. News when you want it, weather, sports, radio up the woo-hoo, Youtube also but limited search ability.

Great Device

JPreas76, Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: This device is great, especially if you have kids. We filled our netflix instant queue with a few kid shows and have them ready to watch for quiet times. The device was a little difficult to get started, but I am a novice at home networking. The problem was mostly getting the computer ready to share files, but it was also not totally intuitive when learning the GUI on the FreeAgent.

Great value but a few hitches

Michael F Malinowski, Amazon
21 January 2011
  • Summary: This media player is a great value and I have found it to work well. One disappointment is that from the literature and reviews I expected it to be 'network alive' - and allow the computers in my small home network to move files to and from a USB drive attached to the media player. In fact, it does not allow any access to USB attached drives from networked computers.

Not ready out-of-the-box

kate gabrielle, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: I should have read the amazon details more carefully, because unless your computer router is like two feet away from the television that you're hooking the FreeAgent Theater to, you're going to need the wireless adapter - sold separately. The box comes with an ethernet cable so that you can attach your device to your computer router. If, like me, you don't keep your computer right next to your television, you need the wireless adapter.

great for playing music videos pictures from hard drive

R. jay "jay", Amazon
1 January 2011
  • Summary: I don't know why anyone would rate this product 1 0r 2 star. Ok it's made of some cheap material but it's only $65 too. It does what it suppose to...plays everything from your hard drive. No more dvd converting and fumbling with dvd's which one you wanna watch. Every picture, video, and song on your fingertip whatever u wanna see.

Practical player

C. Larsen, Amazon
26 December 2010
  • Summary: This little unit is great for keeping the household media library in one, easy to access location. We keep most of our movie collection on the 320gb portable drive we purchased at the same time as the player. Only one drawback is it's speed. Don't expect a quick reaction to anyone searching the files, hitting play or pause. Almost as if the batteries are weak.( I checked, they're not....) Remote is extremely light, and I suspect a little fragile.

Seagate Freeagent Theater+

Lingnau, Amazon
14 July 2010
  • Summary: Product is pretty decent, it has some flaws tough. 1.On the "home screen", it shows your content categorized, movies, pictures, etc. Problem is, it only works for removable storage like pendrives or a seagate freeagent disk, it can not index content from the network. That's sort of annoying since every time you want to play something, you have to waste lets say one minute to browse to your content. 2. Playlists.

Excellent concept, acceptable execution

Ronald D. Laforge "Studio Printer", Amazon
2 July 2010
  • Summary: Prior to discovering Theater+ I was using the Seagate Free Agent Go external drives to store Audio, Video and Photos for backup and travel. It was a no brainer to add a player that easily connects to my TV-Audio system. I have even taken the Theater+ on the road to connect with my hotel TV. The navigation system is the weak spot of the Theater+ unless you invest effort into organizing your media to work efficiently with the limitations of the system.
