Best used for playing media via USB on hard drive. PERIOD.

GRock, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Ive been on the fence about this thing for a long time. I LOVE it as a device to play my media collection via USB from hard drives, thumb drives, etc. BUT, I absolutely HATE it as a streaming media device. Build: Small little black box. The usual connections. Easy to hook up.

(Half) dead after 2 years!!

H. Dinh, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this media player around December 2011. Guess after 2 years of fair amount of usage, I can't complain and it may be time to buy a new one. But I know that there are other WD media player owners (of different models) who are happy with their old ones, some even as old as 4+ years.

  • Summary: I have been using a Slingbox, Hava, Vulkano, or some sort of slinging device for six or so years. You can look at my reviews and see some of my old reviews.

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.

Look elsewhere

Mashed Potato, Amazon
7 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had this for over 5 years now. It's always been a little slow, not completely intuitive in setting it up, and honestly a little annoying. It fulfilled the roll I needed for it 5 years ago but would not buy it today as there are much better media player alternatives
