5 out of 5 eggsThis thing Rocks!

Pros: It works amazing. Luckily I am very tech savvy and have played around with the different firmwares, but it plays my 1080p AVI files I throw at it flawlessly from just a network shared folder. My family watches Netflix and listens to Pandora on it routinely without any issues. If you are having issues, try a different firmware, and try using it wired vs. wireless as a test. It is possible your wireless network/router has issues. Try 2.4Ghz if you have a problem with the 5Ghz band. 5Ghz has a much smaller range than 2.4Ghz.

Cons: I did not find it sooner.

Other Thoughts: Buy it and read up on it on the web and do some research, it is well worth it. Many features and apps I don't even care to use.

2 out of 5 eggsAnd I buy WD for all my storage needs.

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: It had a dead power brick on arrival. Some cheap piece of garbage 12V that was all written in Chinese. Only reason I know it's 12V is because of the 12V that you can pick out among all the Chinese writing. I've bought WD for any and all of my storage needs on 8 or 9 PC builds and they've never disappointed me like this. Hopefully they take the initiative and get it solved. The unit itself works, but I had to dig up a laptop 12V. I think for $90 a piece you should send me a out just a 12V plug, thats all I need and this thing will be golden.

Other Thoughts: If WD can fix this in a timely fashion I'll gladly change my review to a 5 Egg, I've dealt with WD many times before and this is the first time they've sent me dead hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This device has not failed me yet. I love it. I converted all the movies I own to ISO format and it plays it instantly. All 479 movies on a 3TB external HD. Did the firmware update as soon as I received it in and perfect no errors or anything else.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than expected

Pros: I have 3 of these and can say they are great. Two are wired one is wireless. The wired units play everything I throw at them, the wireless unit does have issues, but that's due to network problems. I have a media server and use these mainly to watch movies an TV shows so I am very happy. I will be getting 2 more shortly

Cons: No buttons to use if the remote stops working.

4 out of 5 eggsWDTV

Pros: Very small, low foot print, low power consumption, zero noise and next to zero heat. Easy to configure and connect to network shares for media playback. Also has a massive amount of built in codecs for video playback off many types including direct from .ISO files.

Cons: Claims to work with PlexMeidaServer as a PlexPlayer by connecting to DLNA servers. It does not.

Other Thoughts: For the money I spent on this little device, this is fantastic. I do recomend this to anyone who has a file server on their network (Linux, Apple, MS, NAS, etc...) and wants a simple, easy to use HD media player for their family to enjoy.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: -Has an awesome remote app available for download
-Does everything I need for it to do, but see cons

Cons: -Loads external drive files REALLY slow and slows down the entire unit while doing it.
-Makes USB connectors get pretty warm.

-1 egg for these two things.

Other Thoughts: It's a bit cheaper than the Roku 3 and does the same things. My family and I decided to stop paying for cable last month and needed something to allow us to keep watching some of our favorite shows and movies. This thing did just the trick.

1 out of 5 eggsWD Live Junk

Pros: Plays many formats

Cons: 1. No button to switch from full to wide screen. You need to do this in the menu for each movie
2. Automatically, randomly deleted moves off my HD when connected through network and directly plugged into the WD tv live box.
3. USB ports died after a couple uses
Called WD. They said they have heard of this happening and will send me a new one. They said they will need my cc incase I don't return the old one they will charge me for it. Next day I see over $100 taken out by them, this is not what they said would happen. Called and explained how they never said they were going to take the funds out, "Sorry it's our policy". I asked to speak to a supervisor. They said they would check on it and call me back in 24 hours to tell me if they could refund me sooner. I have small bank charges from over drawing in my checking now. I still haven't received a call back from them. They assume you are going to steal the broken product so they automatically charge you
