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

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.
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. Things have progressed along ways since the start. Here is my review on the WD TV, NeoTV, and how they work with the Slingbox 350.
Summary: Got the device a few days ago and am playing around with it. Here are my thoughts categorized as Pros and Cons: Pros: - I like the sliding bottom bar interface, it's quite intuitive with big icons and menu items - My Logitech wireless keyboard works perfectly - USB stick works perfectly - Setup is...

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.
Picture quality could be better, some hiccups streaming 1080p files

Summary: My intended usage is primarily Hulu Plus, PlayOn (for internet streaming of shows not on Hulu Plus), and video streaming from my Windows 7 x64 machine (rips from DVD and BluRay discs which can include .wtv, .mp4, .ts, .m2ts).
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
