Cons: Bought 4 of these and one has developed stuttering and freezing problem.
Other Thoughts: If you have been a NewEgg customer for a few years or more (over a decade for me) than you know NewEgg TOTALLY deserves the benefit of the doubt. RMA was automatic, return shipping is included and no re-stocking fee. Replacement arrived very quickly. I average an RMA once about every 4 years years, so this makes it my 3rd one. That actually constitutes a Pro to me.

Cons: Have to connect to network successfully to be able to see MAC address so you basically have to disable your MAC filter security on your wireless network to be able to get the MAC address of this device to enter into the allowed MAC addresses and re-enable security. After going through that ridiculous setup procedure, the device worked for one evening of streaming (a few hours), and then failed to find the router on the next night or thereafter. Other devices on the network worked with no problem including two other streaming devices (Sony) , a laptop, and a smartphone.
This device has only Netflix and Vudu, and whatever you put in the slot (DVD) or USB port. It only has one HDMI connection. I bought this to use as a basic CD player when my other one crapped out, connected to an old receiver , but no HDMI on the old receiver so I tried using as an alternate to another streaming player which did have audio out jacks.
Paying 27.5% of its cost just to return the thing, that's how much it sucks. Should have read newegg.com's policy that they don't pay for return shipping on defective devices.

Pros: Quick boot and play times. Good HD picture. Netflix and other apps work well. Has Hulu etc. WiFi streams well over Signature Time Warner. Lightweight and stylish. Has my Samsung account from my TV and phone signed in. So far, this thing has played all of my digital movies no problem. I've been putting them on a USB and its awesome.
Cons: Small remote. No HDMi cable included but that's common. Fingerprint magnet. Slow updates. Had to update (install) 19 apps upon hookup to WiFi.

Cons: It can't do anything else. It can't play DVD +/- R's. It has a USB port, but it can't read any video files that you put on it. It says it's wi-fi capable, but it can't find my router that's 10 feet away. The menu looks very cheap, like something a 10 year old would make.
Other Thoughts: I got it for free, and I'm still disappointed that I had to pay for shipping for it.
