Summary: I bought this product in August 2011. I have it set up wirelessly. I works OK. However, if you want to watch a movie on a weekend night, be prepared for repeated stalling along the way. Its like being on a highway that has construction crews ahead, but eventually you get through the movie.
Summary: Horrible experience with this item... I usually like to rate my bad items with a 2 star but this was really worth a 1 star... the item is functional but the wifi quality is just bad. It took me 5 mins to connect to the internet despite the fact that my other items took seconds.
Summary: If you are serious about buying this, do what I failed to do before I wasted the money. Search for "Sony Netflix Interface" and see how many bad reviews there are, and for how long Sony has apparently not cared. I bought this specifically for use with Netflix.
Summary: Unit is a total piece of junk, do-not waste money on it. 98% of time tv shows "no signal" when unit is connected. To get it to work is total hit or miss. I have to turn it on and off many times to only get it to work the 2% of trys. When it does work, the menus for finding movies are terible.
Summary: The Sony Media Player goes into bufffering mode every two or three minuts when streaming netflix, while other brands don't. we swapped for a second player, it does the same thing. I returned this item back and bought an Apple TV (awsome unit).
Summary: The Sony SMP-N100 has the very familiar Sony remote navigation. Very nice Netflix rendering including the ability to SEARCH Netflix and add titles to your favorites queue. The built in Wi-Fi works great.
Summary: I've been running a home media server for years now, starting out originally with a rather noisy PC connecting to SageTV server and eventually working my way to an Asus O!Play, WD Live, and most recently, this SMP-N100. The direction of the technology is fantastic.
Just bought this at Costco and will be returning tomorrow

Summary: I already have a WD media player that works great. I saw this at Costco and figured I could use one upstairs and it has wireless. I hooked it up and connected it to the internet with no problem. Youtube, Hulu and others worked great.
Summary: i wrote very positive review for this device previously but i have to change it a one star rating because i discovered a picture quality issue with this device. it seems to have trouble handling scenes with horizontal patterns.
Summary: Nach langer Überlegung hab ich mich gegen den WD TV Live entschieden, was sich im Nachhinein als Fehler rausstellet. Zum Allgemeinen: +Design +Anschlüsse + Firmware update funktionierte problemlos + Internetzugang über Router sofort möglich + YouTube funktioniert +ARD,Kabel1, Pro7 etc.
