Read allot of reviews for the WD TV Live and was leaning towards it only because even the people who didn’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 :)

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.
