Western Digital TV Live HD Media Player

willyable, ReviewStream
25 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I find this to be one of the coolest things sitting on my TV stand. I enjoy the fact that this thing allows me to enjoy my media with no issue. Western Digital has always been my favorite electronic when it comes to making your media less mobile.

Really good stuff

Gary Woodsmith "Zachy Boy", Amazon
23 December 2011
  • Summary: Have been using this for some years, really am impressed by it's features and peformance. The best thing about this item is that the firmware is flashable to a custom rom, which is excellent and well developed (forgot name). As stock though, this is still excellent, although, have noticed that you have to restart it if you leave it on too long (day or two) as it does act weird sometimes. Has a neat remote control and excellent output options.

Great HDTV player. - Firmwares & Remote not so great

Christian Ellsworth Capo "blues squier", Amazon
22 November 2011
  • Summary: I have being using the WD HDTV devices since early 2009 (with the first version) always great results, since it works on SD TV and more higher end HDTV, with no problems. I took the time to write a late review of this, to share the experience with the latest firmwares and the remote control.

Outstandind value

sethpa, Mwave.com
20 June 2011
  • Summary: This is currently the best network media player out there for the price, you can add a wireless adapter for $10 and this becomes a brilliant device.
  • Pros: Plays any media format that I have thrown at it. No lag or stuttering on my home network. Small and indiscreet.
  • Cons: Requires remote to control everything, if you lose or break your remote this is nothing more than a giant paperweight. Poor GUI and navigation. No built in wireless.

WD TV Network Ready Media Player - wireless network

dustbunnypink, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: I got this so I could watch things I downloaded to my 2TB hard drive upstairs on my tv downstairs. I read several reviews that said "do not" upgrade the firmware b/c then the wireless USB won't work. So I never upgraded...at first. I got my wireless usb adapter - model AWLL5077 Airlink - and plugged it in my media player and it didn't do anything.

WDTV Media Live HD

Tod, Mwave.com
14 March 2011
  • Summary: This product is one of the two best supported HD media players on the market.
  • Pros: Plays MKV, AVI, MP4, WMV, DVDs, and etc. Two USB 2.0 ports. Fast remote sensor.
  • Cons: GUI is good, but fast enough access to data media files. GUI is required for many remote options like subtitles.

Great, when not frozen...

R. Rodriguez, Amazon
9 August 2010
  • Summary: I have this thing setup to connect to my network share folders. Flexibility with this thing is pretty good. There are several options you can fine tune for it to suit your needs. The video and audio quality from this unit is great. The codec support is vast and viewing options are plenty. It may be my unit that's having this issue - as I'm not reading many other complaints about this; BUT - this thing CONSTANTLY freezes.

WD TV great, but i had problems finding a Wifi Adapter for it

Judith, Amazon
15 July 2010
  • Summary: The Wd TV is a great little device, it does everything as described, but i had my problems connecting it to a wifi adapter, i wanted to use it in a room away from my Lan cable. So i went to the WD TV product website, found the list with compatible wifi adapters including model & version numbers and went shopping, unfortunately nothing i found had the correct version numbers, tough many model names were identical, so i tried one of the stated models, but with a different...

Almost perfect but missing crucial support for DVD Menus, Netflix, and Vudu

Paul, Amazon
17 June 2010
  • Summary: After trying many different media streamers (including among others my XBOX 360, DirecTV receivers, etc.) I think I've come close to finding the ideal player. The biggest failings are the lack of support for DVD menus and not having options for Netflix, Amazon, and Vudu. I was really hoping to be able to get rid of all of the other streaming devices that are cluttering up my living room.
