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.

Nice Media Player for Videos

Luffy "Gomu Gomu", Amazon
16 August 2010
  • Summary: Want to share my experience with this media player. Good: 1. Plays everything I tried on it, especially MKVs which does not play on my PS3 or 360. 2. Supports subtitles within the MKV file. (No extraction of srt required!) 3. Support external subtitle files as well.

Good price/performance ratio.

D. Dimick, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: After purchasing this unit I now own two media streamers. This unit was about 50% less costly than the one I use on my main home theater system (the WD Live is in my bedroom), but I am happy with the price/performance of both. The WD Live is a budget performer and excels in that category.

First MacFriendly Media Player

Mwave.com
7 March 2010
  • Summary: Great media server for Mac Users
  • Pros: Plays everything iTunes likes. H.264 m4v or mp4 files. Can read HFS+ USB drives formatted for Mac OS X. Can see Mac on Network and HFS+ drives attached to Macs on the network.
  • Cons: Scanning 2TB drive takes a while with no visual feedback that it is scanning. You think it cannot see the drive. Be patient and go for a walk. Come back and try again. Also, icon view which shows a few movies a page is only good if you have a few movies on a USB stick. For 2TB drives, you need to...

Simple and reliable but not flexible

Thorstein Veblen "Conspicuous Consumer", Amazon
7 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this product to provide an interface between my ReadyNAS and my TV that is simpler than my HTPC. The system is very reliable user friendly. If you are using it to connect to an external hard drive or over a simple network you will be satisfied.

Excellent Media Player for the Money

Schnizle "Schnizle", Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: What's in the box: The WD TV Live, compact remote with batteries, Composite AV cable, Component AV cable, AC adapter, Quick Install Guide. This is a wonderful media player for the money, but the user interface is basic and lacks features. First, the good things.

Great unit, works right from the box, one network option had to be turned off

R. Brinkman, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: So far this unit has exceeded my expectations. My main purpose was to be able to watch archived videos from my upstairs PC down to the living room TV. But internet access to YouTube on the TV would definitely be a plus.
