Great Media Player8/6/2012
This device handles almost any type of media file I give it. Everything works without problems. Allows the use of external drives that are formatted with FAT32 and with NTFS.
WD TV Live plus - great value6/11/2012
I am not an audio/video expert - and love this unit. Through the years, I have collected movies that are online, music video, karaoke videos, etc. - and spent time trying to burn them to DVDs. This has been a long and painful process for a non-expert like me. I ordered the refurbished unit - and within ta few minutes connected it to my HD Samsung TV and WD USB drive - no problems playing my DIVX and MP4s. -remote control works great -menu is easy to use. - connects to my USB wireless adapter.
Have 3 of them now5/17/2011
Easy to hook up and use. My wireless adapter configured with no problems ( made sure it was on the compatibility list first). I converted all of my DVD folders to M4V files to save space and make streaming error free. I wish it would pick up the artwork that I have in each of the movie folders so that it would display thumbnails. I am working on it as I have read some people got it to work. I also wish it had a "Favorites" item to click on so that you could go directly to an item or location without going through the menus. But I bought 3 of them and got rid of Windows Media Center because it works so well. Once you update the firmware you will get access to more Internet apps.
Seems like a refurb.1/2/2011
Overall I am pleased with the WDTV. The only problem that I had, which weren't really problems, were that the WDTV comes with the original firmware still installed. Which means that the wifi doesn't work yet as well as a lot of the internet apps. You have to either hook up a ethernet cable to the box or download the update to a usb stick or hard drive and install from there. The update makes all the difference in the world. The other problem I had was that the HDTV arrived without any rubber stand pieces or a manual. It also came in an unmarked brown box. Kinda says refurb to me. But, as I said, it's a great little machine.
It does exactly what you need it to do6/13/2010
Read allot of reviews for the WD TV Live and was leaning towards it only because even the people who didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like it said it played just about every file they threw at it. Saw the WD TV Live Plus and thought Netflix was a great addition. All the reviews were rite played any file I have so far in my movie library. I use it mostly to stream from a pc through my LAN. So far audio in sync and no hiccups or pixilation on video. Same old WD interface its a little bland but has the basics I am looking for still no skip forward or back on ff/rw and the 16x ff/rw is a tad slow for me but they have added a return to so if you stop a movie you can just pick up where you left off. You could sit here for hours but you can all surf for your specific tech specks but just wanted to let everyone know so far it works well and WD seems to have ironed out all the bugs I read about previous versions of this player. Cant wait to see what word they tack on after PLUS in the next version :)
