Performance

Ease of installation and using... Had this for over two weeks and no hangs or reboots, works perfect. I have all kinds of video formats and so far no problems. I would recommend this to all! THANKS ASUS!!!!

-Steve quote

I have used this player as well as the Western Digital WDTV (the original, not the Live). Asus was a great value because of network support. I also prefer the remote control on the Asus over the WDTV... more buttons mean fewer clicks to get where you want to go. I rate the Ease of Use as a 4 only because there is a bit of work involved to get this working with a networked drive. But anybody who has a home network with shared folders should be able to do it in 10 minutes or less. The only other shortcoming I can report is that there is no way to view thumbnail images associated with a movie collection. Instead you get a preview window that starts playing the movie as you browse (you can disable this through options.) But I still recommend this player. I had no issues with file compatibility; in fact it played some files that the original WD TV would not play, like the .MOV files I created with my panasonic digital camera.
