Works pretty well
Stu Redman, Amazon

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: I've been waiting for a device like this for years: a plug-n-play digital media player that accepts many media formats, has high quality video out, comes with a remote, and accepts removable storage devices, from external hard drives (the Seagate GO drives fit snugly) to USB 2.
Summary: Works really well, has been able to play all my digital content without a problem, if you have a poor picture quality when you first plug it in make sure to change the option to your screen resolution
Works great for lots of codecs but lacks other features

Summary: The codecs it can play encompasses a lot and works smooth even for mkv and h264 files at 1080i/720p. I don't think the internal dock is worth using as it costs a bit extra compared to alternative drives you can plug into the usb ports.
Summary: I tried to like this product but I is just plain junk. The remote eats batteries and needs full batteries to work. The player itself is slow to respond to commands. The seagate go drive I ordered said new but came with free porn. I think I will stop there.
Summary: The FreeAgent Theater+ comes with all kinds of nice features and lots of cables. However, if you just want to attach a backup or flash drive to it and play movies or music on your TV, it is not just plug and play.
Summary: it's able to play all of my media. good picture/sound. just one tiny thing with the appearance of the layout with the menu, just need to get used to it. overall, good product! btw, I almost get the WD HDTV media player instead, but it doesn't support as many format as the Seagate.
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.
Summary: Interface is so-so, a bit laggy, my mom would surely get lost in the interface. But overall, for me, an above average pc and mac user, the concept is great, although lacking generally in speed and ease of use. HDMI out is a plus for me, considering i previously owned a lower spec freeagent theater.
