Summary: IT NEVER WORKS and WASTES THE USERS' TIME & NRG!
Pros: I gave it a 1 because I have to make AT Least that designation. This piece of junk worked for a few tries, and now I spend more time rebooting it and resetting it and praying that it will stop rolling so I don't feel like such an idiot for buying the stupid thing in the 1st place. Don't accept it...
Summary: Loved this product. Am disappointed it's discontinued.
Pros: - Easy to get started - Played almost every format I owned (see below for con) - Menus worked really well - Good price
Cons: - Would not work with some of the more advanced hard drives, but worked fine on most of those available when I purchased the product. - Would not play Hi Def formats (but once the video was reformatted down, played fine)
Summary: i could just barely read the screen in its black/white flickering goodness. I scrolled around and found the settings option, then found the resolution setting and then clicked on Y PB Pr (green red blue cable hook up for hd) and it gave me the option for various NTFS and PAL settings.
Pros: FREAKING AMAZING as i use to simply hook up my laptop to my tv and play media from that. Easy to use that my mom can use it which is why i got it. She cant use my laptop very well (newegg censored me).
Cons: Did not work right out of the box due to it being set to PAL instead of NTFS (needed for north America region technology and movies) witch gave it a flickering picture in black and white. It wasn't a Hertz problem, just a resolution problem..
Summary: I was never notified by phone or email that I wouldn't be getting another one of these from Newegg, nor was I offered a similar product as a replacement, I had to find out after it was too late and they had refunded my account.
Pros: Played the format I use most, small.
Cons: Worked for one month, one day powered it up and the color was black and white with no sound, returned for an RMA replacement but it was discontinued.
Summary: I tried about a dozen different mp4 codecs and this wouldn't play ANY of them. After searching through the support forum for WD, I found that this is a common complaint for this item and WD has not been helpful in resolving it.
