  • Summary: I have this connected to a 1.5 tb external hd and it does an amazing job. the only complaint I have is that because of the sheer volume of movies I have on it it takes several minutes to load once turned on

Perfect Item for vidio file viewing

James M Mitchell, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • Summary: This unit is used for taking vidio files in almost any format and watching them on your TV. Works with tri-colored audio/vidio jacks or HDMI cable. Just download a movie or TV show on your computer, place it on a flash drive and plug it into the device. Super simple, easy to use. This opens up a whole new world of vidio viewing. I have had several WD Media Players and have been pleased with all of them. Small, portable and easy to move from one ATV to another.

  • Summary: I purchased this after reading many of the reviews. I wanted something where I am not forced to enter a credit card number to activate it (i.e. ROKU) just to get to my pay services like Netflix and Hulu+. It offers many of the services most users expect. Setup is intuitive but would recommend hard wiring to your network instead of using the wireless connectivity offered(wireless is ok if that is your only option).

Wish it was better

Hind, Amazon
24 July 2012
  • Summary: I've had this for a few years. When it works (90% of the time) its flawless, no lag, 100% quality. Other times it fails to read files, or its slow in the menu. Its locked up a numerous times. Love how small the remote is. Not much for customization of the menu. At the time I got it, it was the only thing to play mkv next to buying a ps3. If thinking about this, get the newer versions.

AWESOME addition to my media options

nanc, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: This product does what it says. Works great although more directions on how to use would be helpful for technically challenged people. I particular like that it loads fast from a 2T external hard drive where I stored movies. Once I figured out the necessary steps to get them to play I was pleased the movies play and look great. One downfall is to keep the captions turned off unless wanted. They load with each new movie and I have to manually turn that off each time.

Solid Product - If you know what you are doing

Gregory C. Schmidt, Amazon
12 December 2011
  • Summary: I just recently purchased my second one of these and I say that while there was a learning curve (more below), this box performs admirably. I even recommended it to my old boss and he loves it. Why do some people bash it? I am not sure, unless they have the newer live version and use it for streaming. I only use this box for direct viewing of attached videos on USB drives. If that is not you, this review may not apply.

  • Summary: No frills. Runs right out of the box and it's cheap as hell. Why didn't someone tell me about this sooner?

Pretty good

Snakebitten, Amazon

  • Summary: I like this. Love the customizable folders etc so you can be pretty creative with it. Plays all my unprotected video and audio formats. Sadly it doesn't play Itunes folks. Other than that its great.
