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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
great for playing music videos pictures from hard drive

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.
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.
Summary: Setup: firmware 1.55, which cannot be downgraded to the 1.4x series (for the roll-your-own crowd) Updated to 2.20 (huge numeric jump, can't tell a difference) HDMI Raw audio out to receiver HDMI 1080P out to receiver (same cable of course) Wired 10/100 to the local network What it does well: * Plays...
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.
