Western Digital WD TV Live Review

maximum pc
19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: For a company whose primary business is manufacturing hard drives, Western Digital sure knows a lot about digital media and how to stream it over a network. Each succeeding generation of the company’s WD TV Live product has led the market in terms of features, price, and performance, and this one is no different.
  • Pros: Comprehensive file and container format support for media you own; broad collection of services for media you rent.
  • Cons: Doesn't support Vudu.

Western Digital WD TV Live

1 February 2010
  • Excerpt: High-definition video files were meant to be seen on big-screen televisions, not your 19-inch PC monitor. But getting these files—either personally ripped from high-def sources or downloaded from the Internet—from your desktop to the living room has always been a cumbersome process.
  • Pros: File playback over a network; component video output; improved file compatibility over the first WD TV.
  • Cons: No DRM-encrypted file support; time-consuming directory navigation; not ideal for music playback.

Western Digital WD TV Live review

Pocket Lint
2 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Western Digital had been rather quiet on the media streaming/jukebox market until it turned up with the barnstorming WD TV late last year; a device that offered the support, usability and performance the market was screaming for and only lacked the ability to stream media across a network and view online content.
  • Pros: Easy to configure and use, excellent interface, good performance and format support, great value for money
  • Cons: No built-in wireless, access to additional online content could be better

  • Conclusion: It may be compact, but it runs like a dream and crams in far more than its sub-£100 would suggest

Western Digital WD TV Live Media Player

10 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Rivale directe de la passerelle multimédia Emtec Movie Cube N200 , la nouvelle WD TV Live Media Player offre plus de services Internet mais se révèle très légèrement moins performante que celle-ci avec des fichiers gourmands en ressources. Cependant, pas de panique tout de même, elle s’en sort plus que bien sur la fluidité de la quasi-totalité des formats les plus courants ou ceux que vous pourrez réaliser à partir de vos médias originaux dont ceux en 24p.
  • Pros: Full HD, Prise Ethernet pour services Internet, Connectiques, Lecture formats vidéo via le réseau, Accès sous Windows, Lecture ISO DVD et BD, Rapport qualité/prix, Encombrement
  • Cons: Incompatibilité AC3+, Micro saccade sur du Full HD M2TS, Quelques loupés de traduction, Consommation en veille

  • Conclusion: Western Digital er kommet med denne nye medie løsning, som igen kan afspille de fleste gængse formater via. ens tv i stuen. Vi har tidligere kigget på netop sådan en løsning fra Western Digital og det er en rigtig god løsning, som vi har med at gøre her, men der er nogle begrænsninger i og med at Western Digital har valgt at lave en mindre model end den vi har kigget på tidligere.
