No Instant Skip Function

  • Excerpt: For the most part, this player is pretty good, but the only complaint that I have (and it's pretty minor in the big scheme of things) is that it doesn't have the ability to do an instant skip forward or backwards; something that you need to have when your kid wants to watch one small scene over and over again. You'd think this would be a standard option (My Blu-Ray player has it and my DVR has it), but I guess not.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control

  • Summary: I love everything about how it works minus one thing... when the screensaver comes on or it times out it then stops recognizing the USB port. I have found as long as you turn the unit off when you are not using it, it will not freeze up on you. Leave it on all day and it gets slow, and will stop recognizing the USB port. overall I love the WD live TV though! :) an easy way to play your movies etc. on your tv.

So-so

  • Excerpt: It is essentially a vehicle to get you to buy subscriptions to video and game services. Does not offer easy access to basic TV. Does not offer easy access to the Internet. Offers a limited lineup of movie and entertainment services. Occasionally hangs up for no apparent reason.<br />But, what it does offer, it does well. <br />Interesting note: WD's Android app turns your Android into a remote control - which works much better than the remote that comes with the box.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Sleek Design
  • Cons: Requires Subscriptions

Seems like its ok

Roundman72, B&H Photo
2 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I use serviio and stream in my whole house using 2 PS3 1 xbox 3 sony smp-200. I wanted something for close captions. well it works kinda. it does show the words but it caused the picture to kinda flash when it posted the captions. I also could not get it to play a whole folder? I read and set it to repeat but it never worked. So I went back to the sony and gifted this to my father-in-law. The box seemed really nice and the remote was way better than the sony's.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
  • Cons: No Manual

A little wireless trouble, but ok now

  • Excerpt: Had a little difficulty getting it to cooperate over wireless with the USB drive mounted on my router. I suspect it would have been OK mounted on the router and accessed over a wired ethernet connection. I eventually mounted the disk locally on the WD live unit, and it has no problems. Streaming HD works well.

It's really good, but...

  • Excerpt: This product is awesome FOR ME, I bought it because the o'lady always tells me that I don't watch stuff with her, that I download my TV Shows and Movies and I don't watch it with her. The thing is, my &quot;office&quot; is not comfortable for two, we can watch it laid down, we have to be sit on a our uncomfortable couch.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good functions, Well built
  • Cons: Regular remote control, Slow Connection Speed
