How do you review something that doesn't work?

Henrydogsnores, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Got off to a bad start with the handset that seemed faulty. Had to disconnec the box from the mains and reconnec to switch it on again without the handset. At the third time of inputting my router code to connect to my wireless network - a 24 digit code you have to enter manually with the handset and arrows, the 'failed to connect to your network message was enough to decide I have better thing to do with my life that to spend my day fruitlesly trying to get something to...

Set lowered expectations

Phil, memoryexpress.com
10 October 2013
  • Pros: The device is feature rich with a number of services to tie into with a number of outputs types.
  • Cons: Slow slow slow..... You need a lot of patience and very low expectations when using this device. Whether you are accessing local USB, internet based services such as Netflix, or a networked media server or NAS it is painfully slowwwwww..... Many times while watching netflix the device wouldn't continue with the next episode and time out connecting (while my comp, laptop and xbox netflix had no issues connecting). I have had 3 ASUS OPlay devices in the past and they a...

Extremely slow and keep freezing on Netflix

David Papazian, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: I got this unit recently, and Netflix worked fine for the first week. Since then, the unit keeps freezing while loading movies. I've checked the connection to the internet, Navigating the menus is painfully slow. Forget using Youtube...Terrible value for the money in my case as I purchased this with the intention of using it mainly for Netflix. I recommend you stay away and look for alternatives!

not good at all

Dan B, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: I figured I would give WD a try since I've been a longtime user of their hard-drives. I expected the same quality, big mistake. First of all, unlike the ASUS media player I used to have, this unit takes a long time to boot up and does not detect all of the hard-drives on my network. I was willing to let this slide, but after a few days, it started saying something along the lines of : ''cannot write data to external storage'', and proceeded to stop detecting all of the...

Nasty

Jonathan M. Katz, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: There's watching paint dry, slow...There's watching linoleum curl, slow...and then there's WD live tv, slow. Unbelievably slow. I first turn the machine on, and try to setup my wifi. It took 11 minutes to connect. So I want to access the files on my computer, I'm waiting, waiting, 20 minutes later the screen turns black. I'm thinking, did it freeze? screen saver? The remote doesn't do anything, waited another 5 minutes, then just unplugged it to try again.

Not as advertised on Western Digital website

Matthew, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: Beware: some of these units will allow UK services such as BBC iPlayer, but some block them. I bought one of these six weeks ago. It is brilliant! Everything works, including BBC iPlayer and ACE Trax Movies. I also have a WDTV Live Hub in my living room, which acts as a player and also as storage, with one internal 1TB drive two external 2TB drives attached, and communicates happily with my WDTV Live Streaming player in my bedroom through the home wireless network.
