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.

Outstandind value

  • 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.

Good choice for simple network media player!!

Sang Tae Park "S. Park", Amazon

  • Summary: I have Philips Dvix player with USB connection. It is good and easy but has very bad codec support. Previous WD TV has been known as very good media player but DTS support and network connection are Cons. However, new model(WD TV Live) comes with network and DTS. So, I decided to buy this for my home media player. It is working very well. But, there are some weak points also. Pros. 1. Easy to use without any install. 2. Compatible with multi OS formatted drive. 3.

Play your PC videos on your Flat Screen wirelessly

Scott Tutshen, Amazon
22 May 2010
  • Summary: I was looking for a device that I could connect to my Flat Screen in my living room that could wirelessly play my videos (TV shows, HD movies, Home movies). I have 3 Western Digitial external drives connected to my PC, and have had them for over a year. They are very reliable, so when I saw that Western Digital (WD) also had a device that could connect to my flat screen via HDMI or RGB connection, I researched it further.

Finally, it works!

Akbar A. Abidi, Amazon
20 May 2010
  • Summary: What a brilliant concept. What a terrible first-boot experience. This box will play any and every file you can throw at it, including high quality 1080p .mkv bluray rips with DTS soundtracks. Easy menu, very quick and responsive compared to older models. The trouble I had with this unit was getting it to connect to my network shares when I first turned it on.

Lovin it!

Jake Smith "B1GSN4KE", Amazon
9 May 2010
  • Summary: Absolutely love it! I was using my xbox 360 previously to stream my media from my PC to my TV. There is almost no comparison how much better this is. It was easy to set up, easy to maneuver through the menus, response times are great throughout the menus and loading the media, and it supports every file format that I've been able to throw at it! The device hardly gets warm after hours and hours of prolonged use in a small non-ventilated component cabinet.

  • Summary: Great product overall, pandora support, rumored netflix support and ability to play any file type across the network easily makes this the best player in its class.
  • Pros: Will play any file I throw at it. Will play files on a network share.
  • Cons: no wifi
