4 out of 5 eggsWorks for what I need it to

Pros: Good for what I use it for. I have an external HDD that I have movies and tv shows on. My wife can control the remote and watch the shows that we have downloaded.

Cons: The worst Netflix box ever. Once I got it I found that there was no sound when playing. I backed out and played a movie that we had on the HDD and the sound was fine. We went back to Netflix and the sound started working again. I started looking online and this is a bigger deal that I had thought. It has been a known issue for some time now but even with a new firmware update it does not fix it.

When logging into Netflix, Facebook or anything for that matter, you will have to use the downloadable tool on your computer or device. trying to navigate through the buttons to get the text to start working is a pain.

Other Thoughts: I will more than likely be returning this and trying another version.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good.

Pros: I think this one seems faster than the previous 1 TB version they discontinued. Plays pretty much everything i can throw at it. Wife loves listening to pandora on it. I plug in a USB wireless module i had sitting around and worked.

Cons: Missing the extra 500 GB on it. Transferring over the wireless usually crashes it. I recommend going hard wired or transferring from a USB to the device. I have not tried streaming.
