Awful to the eenth power

Greg H., Newegg
5 March 2013
  • 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...
  • Cons: never works

Teri J., Newegg

  • 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)

WD mini tv media player

Gregory S., Newegg
5 March 2011
  • 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..

Worked great, for a month

jessica r., Newegg
5 January 2011
  • 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.

Doesn't play mp4

Alfredo S., Newegg
13 December 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Easy menu
  • Cons: Won't play mp4.

Works as advertised

25 November 2010
  • Pros: It plays almost everything, scaling of lower resolution content to HD screen is flawless.
  • Cons: Port layout ... USB port should be at the front not side.
