Can't beat it for the price

Jersey Frank, J&R
23 June 2010
  • Summary: Works as described, easy set up, have had about a week now and happy with product. Coverted old VHS-C movies of the kids (now grown up) and save on the network, great having easy access to all the video from family room HDTV. Wife loves it. Take a lot of pictures that are also stored on the network.
  • Pros: Easy Navigation, Easy Setup, Good picture quality
  • Cons: Limited USB Wireless

Incredible technology

Walmart
22 June 2010
  • Summary: You can't go wrong with the Live at just over $100. It does everything as advertised well, plays at full 1080p without a hiccup. Turns your USB hard drive in to a network drive. With the after market custom firmware that is available this becomes quite a mini-computer for the tech savvy complete with background torrents. At this price it would be a good deal with half the actual available functions.

Caution: Does Not Play Full DVD Files

Mac Everyman, J&R
1 June 2010
  • Summary: This is a sound, clever product, BUT...it cannot be used to play files copied from a DVD, because it simply doesn't recognize any DVD navigation files. You can watch a movie from the beginning (sometimes), but you cannot access menus, and you cannot navigate with chapters. Totally unusable with DVD files that, for example, have multiple episodes of a TV program.
  • Pros: Easy Setup
  • Cons: Limited Functions

very nice piece of equipment

paindoc, J&R
31 March 2010
  • Summary: WD TV Live is part of my Home Theater. It is attached to my home network router and pulls the data from my network drives. Plays basically all video formats and even large (up to 30GB) video files without hiccups. Excellent video quality (1080), plays DTS and Dolby. Ability to communicate with YouTube is a very nice addition. Response to remote is a little bit sluggish. Network setup may not be easy for a lay person. Virtual keyboard is just pain in the neck...
  • Pros: Clean Sound, Easy Setup, Great Sound Quality

Best [$] spent

Tony the Movie Lover, J&R
6 March 2010
  • Summary: I heard from many forums that this media player is great, but when I used it the first time, it was way beyond my expectation. Very clear 1080p movies and sounds as well. If you can get 1080p movies from other sources, I don't see why you would need a Blue-Ray player. The network interface is awesome. I'm planning to buy a wireless N USB adapter + router to stream HD movies from my desktop or laptop.Best [$] ever spent!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls

a Great Player for HD videos

Naveen, J&R
3 March 2010
  • Summary: Its a great HD video player, clear picture and sound, fast in response, supports almost all USB Hard disk types, can become wireless when used with a supported USB Wireless Dongle. They still need to provide Flash video support to make this product an excellent purchase. Overall a satisfied experience.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass, Wireless
  • Cons: Doesnt support FLV yet
