SLOW!

bbbttt, Amazon

  • Summary: After owning this little electronic bastard for three years, I have to say I hate it, and I would dissuade anyone from buying it. Not only did it have the overheating issue right off the bat, but it tends to freeze when my hard drive spins down.

I will not buy this just for RMVB

Killmonk, Amazon
14 September 2009
  • Summary: $20.00 cheaper then WDTV but lose most of the main feature of to being a real media player, if you really need something for the RMVB, I will suggest you buy the MediaGate's M2TV, it is almost the same price with WDTV but it play 1080p + RMVB + dts2.0 Support.
