Ease of Use

Very nice! After doing a lot of research I finally decided to buy the WD Live Media Player. It works great, reads my Mac formatted drives and reads all media that I tried so far. Great little device.!

Quite happy with this little device. And I'm hopeful WD is continuing to update it. Bought it a few weeks ago and a few days ago it downloaded and installed new function. Would be nicer if it supported Amazon's streaming service, so will keep my fingers crossed. (I got the refurbished model....no issues)

Awesome little device, easily connects to a media server. Quality playback if the HDMI cable is used as well as the digital optical cable.
