Summary: Ended up with 2 of these, bought them for the kids rooms and they worked nonstop until I upgraded them to a network version of the WDTV. They never turned them off and they kept going. I ended up selling them to coworkers after I now longer had a need for them and they are still working! Great device!
Summary: The cables to plug into the tv need to tweek it a little to get a full color display, or it will be all blue, I do not know why, and the loading sometimes rarely pause and continues, but everything else it does what it said
Summary: This product is just as it is described it worked flawlessly out of the box setup was a snap . Keep in mind this isn`t for my own use i have a little niece and dvd`s don`t last verylong this is clean and small sje`s not likely to notice it behind her tv
Summary: I saw this when a soldier brought it in. Simply plug an external USB hard disk into it, connect it to your TV and watch the movies from your drive. There is a menu structure from the remote control to select the film you want. Works like having a movie server in your house. I am impressed.
BEWARE - does NOT play all file types or high quality video

Summary: Hooked it up for my girlfriend's son for Christmas only to realize that the HDMI cable I had purchased and ready to go was NOT needed because...there is no HDMI connectivity from this unit!!! I should have read the description more carefully as I already had a similar one, but a little bit better quality and it had an HDMI output on it! So, it doesn't play all the file types you might want it to and the higher resolution files won't play.
Summary: I have converted my favorite DVDs to avi or iso files and put them on my 1TB portable hard drive, so instead of having to go search thru hundreds of actual DVDs I simply connected the portable hard drive to this device, hooked it to my big screen and with its remote I just pick the movie I want and press play, I sorted the movies by genre and it just looks like a file system on your computer, and to think I was going to build a high dollar media computer to do what this...
Burning movies or TV shows on discs? Save that drama. I got my WD TV Mini!

Summary: I'm really loving my WD TV mini! No more waiting for my files to get encoded then burnt to a DVD. Now i can just drag my files to my external hard drive or my flash drive, then i plug it into my WD TV Media Player, and now i'm watching my movies and TV shows on my flat screen! It's so easy to use, my 10 year old daughter has been working that remote it came with since the day it came to my door.
Summary: This tiny USB device is great for watching tv programs or other avi format videos. The box is small and does not take up much space. Navigation with the remote is straight forward and the menu is bold and simple. Component picture looks great, but the cable is a little on the short side, so you are a little limited on where you can place the unit. Great buy for those who are tired of burning dvd'd.
