  • Excerpt: Tired of hooking my notebook to the HDMI port on my TV (and tired from all the video setup necessary to translate one into another), I went looking for a solution that: Supported the widest range of formats Brought video services like YouTube into the screen Presented high quality for video /...

  • Excerpt: It's a great unit. I am particularly happy with how I can stream my video podcasts to it from Windows Explorer. It is also excellent for watching downloads from my desktop via a network connection. Lastly, the new update has vastly improved the refresh rate of the files. I use this a lot when...

  • Excerpt: Media: This thing has literally played every file format that I personally have thrown at it. Additionally I run PlayOn through it and play all my internet media as well. Not sure what you would discount this on media for. Video: Only reason I gave this a 4 is that I don't really play that...

  • Excerpt: Wide but not universal codec/container support combined with a 1TB hard drive makes this device hard to beat as a media streamer if user requires local storage of media. Cloud streaming from Netflix, Blockbuster, Mediafly (RSS & other online providers), Pandora, Live365, Flicker Can host...

  • Excerpt: 1st, for these whom dont know. Theres an Android app as a remote (Unoffical ofc).Does what its supposed to do. Does NOT Support MKV files with Vorbis (.ogg) Audio. Most Anime encodes use this aswell as most television shows with 2channel audio. They do play, but you will get a "screech" or distortion every couple of seconds. They have but to place out a firmware update to repair and have not stated something about coming out with 1.

  • Excerpt: It plays most of the common files such as MPEG, AVI, WMA, VOBs..and so on. It doesn't play RM or RMVB video format. I tried this WD player from my pal but realized that it won't play RMVB. I can't think about why WD can't support RMVB video format which it's being 1 of the most popular video format in quite a few countries. I decided to get ASUS O!Play media players which will support every thing plus RMVB and even playing ISO file directly !!!

  • Excerpt: Gorgeous user interface, user friendly, amazing picture high quality on 1080p movies. Really stable even with 20GB MKV files. Auto firmware update function is nice. Once more, extremely steady.Great netflix, tune-in, and youtube assistance. Instead of getting to modify selection in between neighborhood storage and network mapped storage places, there ought to be an choice like boxee where all storage places are merged so that the user is presented with all media content...

  • Excerpt: Comes ready proper out of the box. Plug it in your Tv connect a LAN line to it and your set to network your files straight over with no problems from any personal computer in the residence. You also have the selection to Sync files from a USB device. It plays just about any film file you toss at it which saves me alot of time and no will need for extra converts. Only Con I see is you cant hook it straight up to your pc to copy the files.

  • Excerpt: (See my overview under) Quite UNSTABLE; Buyer BEWARE! This has crashed/rebooted a lot of occasions given that I purchased it, especially when moving or copying files to and from the unit through the USB port. Hardly ever can I move or copy a number of files, which the menu supports (you can select complete screen-fulls of "pages" at a time before moving or copying) with no challenges.
