WD TV HD Review

Anything but iPod
25 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Out of the box, the WD TV HD is an annoyingly slow but still functional media player that will play close to all common formats with the exception of DTS audio decoding. The low price makes it an excellent device for people who simply want to get some media onto their TV, and the device is also...

Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player Review

Futurelooks
8 July 2009
  • Summary: At about a hundred bucks, the WD TV HD Media Player from Western Digital certainly offers several advantages over some of its direct competitors. It's great to see a true HDMI connection here for 1080p video and it's even better that they have taken the care to include an optical audio out as well.
  • Pros: Fantastic file format support, Incredibly small form factor, Great-looking user interface, HDMI, dual USB, and optical audio out
  • Cons: Remote has strange transmission problems, No wireless (or even wired) streaming, No included storage, MOV file did not play audio (codec issue?)

  • Conclusion: What the WD TV HD Media Player does do—play content off of a USB drive—it does well, but that doesn't necessarily mean this is a useful or desirable device.
  • Pros: Affordable. Excellent file support—including for HD video and lossless audio codecs. Simple, intuitive user interface. Includes file-conversion software.
  • Cons: No wireless streaming. Doesn't include a USB drive. Unremarkable physical design.

  • Summary: Ara was fully anticipating selling the player after he was done with the review. However, due to its tiny size and ease of transport, he now sees it as a great device for travel. And yes, Western Digital got it right by making it a perfect complement to the "My Passport" line of hard drives.

  • Excerpt: The Western Digital TV HD Media Player (WDTV) is the device everyone has been raving about. I first  heard of the WDTV  from a friend who got me pretty excited about its possibilities. When I got my hands on it, I’ll admit I was a little skeptical based on first looks.

WD TV HD Media Player

3 December 2008
  • Summary: The company formerly known as Western Digital enters the set-top box game with a cool gadget aimed at people with a lot of downloaded content. Slingbox it ain’t, nor is it a real competitor for the Apple TV box. In fact, it doesn’t even have built-in storage.

Good Gear Guide.au
31 October 2009
  • Summary: The WD TV Live Hub media streamer is a good unit overall, and very versatile.

  • Pros: Built-in 1TB drive, analog and digital video outputs, small footprint, clean and easy to use interface, good file format support

  • Summary: Efter at have brugt Western Digital WD TV HD i et stykke tid er jeg faktisk meget positivt overrasket over den lille boks. Tidligere har jeg været nødt til at trække et HDMI kabel fra min stationære Pc til tv’et/receiveren, men nu er kablet væk og erstattet med en lille boks i stedet.

Review: Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player

29 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Já faz um tempo que falamos no WD TV Media Player da Western Digital, um curioso player de vídeo que — apesar de ser produzido por uma fabricante de discos rígidos — não vem com um disco embutido como fazem seus concorrentes como a Iomega .
