1 out of 5 eggsAsus

Pros: Very nice media player

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Applied for the rebate and took 10% discount with a promise the rebate would be mailed to me within 8-10 days. It has been sitting on their website for weeks and found out today it may be mailed out July 3rd. That's a month after the date that they received the application.
I wish Newegg would do away with MIR's. They are such a scam and I know of no one who has had a good experience with any MIR. Asus 4myrebate is just a horrible way to try to please your customers. I have always bought nothing but Asus MBs but this experience has made me rethink my buying habits. If this is the way they handle a simple thing like rebate I have no more faith in their integrity.

2 out of 5 eggsCan't test without remote

Pros: It looks pretty

Cons: The remote that came with my unit does not seem to work. I've tried the batteries that came with it and brand new batteries. I tried contacting ASUS about it, but they pretty much told me to get a replacement by turning in the whole thing. It seems kind of excessive to return the entire (I'm assuming functioning) thing just because the remote doesn't want to work.

Other Thoughts: Since I've already submitted the rebate too, I'm not sure if I can even get a return/replacement. Pretty frustrating to find out your brand new media player is completely unusable because of a DOA remote.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost does what it says

Pros: It boots up very fast and mine came up to date with the newest firmware. Play just about every format you can think of. Fast boot to menu on power up. gives preview on each file before you press play

Cons: Mine will not read .MKV or .MP4 through the network. tried everything. the only way i found was to put the files on a usb drive or a external hard drive and connect it directly to the device. that sucks considering that why i bought it i wouldn't have to transfer files but not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: Im running Win7 x64 using a linksys router

4 out of 5 eggsOverall good

Pros: Play almost every format, including RMVB, except for APE. Can play files through network share.

10W power consumption, pretty green.

Support unicode subtitle files, can display Japanese or Chinese.

Cons: Software (firmware) is not stable enough, sometimes the box reboots by itself during file folder navigations.

Other Thoughts: Generally pretty good, worth buying.

1 out of 5 eggsBroke Twice

Pros: Plays a lot of video formats
Network playback was good
1080p videos played great

Cons: Reliability
Customer support

Other Thoughts: If the player didn't break on me, I would have given it a higher rating. After about 6 months, it stopped turning on. I tried unplugging unplugging the power, using the reset button, etc... and none of it worked. As a last resort, I attempted to contact ASUS technical support and all I got was a person telling me they were busy and took down my call back information. They promised a call back within 24 hours and that never happened. I called at least 3 times afterwards and was unable to speak with someone. Finally, after the 5th time calling in (about a week later), I finally spoke with someone in the technical support department and was issued an RMA number. I sent it back (at my cost) and after about 2 weeks, I got a new one back. However, the media player still doesn't function properly. If I leave it idle for 2 minutes, it won't turn on anymore. I have to unplug the power cord and plug it back in order to get it to work. I would not recommend this player at all.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh, Its ok.

Pros: Excellent NAS streaming, even in 1080P. No skipping.

Cons: Menus are terrible. You have to browse to the files you want from the NAS every single time. NO shortcuts. I don't even know why the menu has labels for music, movies, etc. You have to locate them each time you want to use them anyway.

Other Thoughts: Try the Western Digital

3 out of 5 eggsgreat item, but would try something else if I could

Pros: Definitely price. Can play any video format. Can browse the network and do just about what you need it to. Easy firmware installation

Cons: The menu is horribly slow, often times you feel like you must have had the remote pointed wrong, then boom it goes. You HAVE to update the firmware with this to make it worth it. No "Browse all" modes for mixed video/audio. Also for some reason when you are browsing videos you actually have to wait for the preview to load before you can start playing the video. Controller has no "menu" button for DVD images but it does play them.

Other Thoughts: Asus could really do itself a favor and implement a web interface with this. If you browse to the IP of the O!Play you'll see there is some sort of web browser. Being able to set up easier shortcuts to cut down on the monotony of clicking in each of the folders would really help. No idea why this thing wouldn't be capable of Youtube. I'd recommend this to someone who wanted to stream videos over the network or off an external device, but if you have a few extra dollars I'd try something else.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome media player

Pros: *plays every possible video and audio format including VOBs or MVKs in HD.
*play a single ISO image file as DVD which is a big plus when you converted your DVDs into digital format
*plays 1080p HD video files flawlessly over the network
*play Real Media video file format which most other media players would not even support it

Cons: *menu - go through few pages and selections before finding and playing files
*no power switch - only can power on/off from remote

Other Thoughts: If this media player was designed to support HD media content, why would it only came with 100Mbps ethernet port speed and not gigabit?

3 out of 5 eggsVastly inferior to the WD TV Live

Pros: * Cheap
* Plays quite a few formats
* Does some cool tricks with ISO / HD-DVD/DVD menus (so I'm told - I didn't get that far)
* eSATA port

Cons: * Doesn't play most of those formats as well as a WD TV Live
* Clunky interface that requires way too many clicks to get to any networked content
* Useless internet streaming features (when they even work)
* Horrible FF / Rew performance on every piece of HD content I tested
* Very limited options for customization
* No Pandora, Slacker, etc
* No NetFlix or Am*zon
* Cheap construction / bulky
* Worst remote performance EVER

Other Thoughts: I already had a WD TV Live in one room and XBMC in another, but I got the HDP-R1 on a ridiculous sale and decided to give it a shot at replacing the XBMC. I was instantly underwhelmed, but I updated the firmware to give it a fair shot. The new firmware added some lame features that I'll never use without fixing any of the core issues that I had with the device. (Other than some bug fixes, of course.)

In short, the interface looks reasonable from the first screen, but nowhere near as polished as some of the alternatives. And the performance while trying to FF/Rew through high def content was so bad that I couldn't even keep it. The WD TV Live is far more polished and I can live without the RMVB format to keep all of my other content humming along.

Maybe I had my hopes too high, but the real killer for was that it simply couldn't even handle FF/Rew. You'd want to go back and re-watch a scene, press Rew 3 times to get to 2x speed and then proceed to wait forever! Unusable for

4 out of 5 eggsUpgrade it and start enjoying...

Pros: Bought this back in January, now its late may and the unit has been in use non-stop. I really like it, and the only files it hasn't played for me are Real Media files. This is the VLC media player in a box. PLays any 1080p HD content you get of the internet.
I have used the Oplay to playback an HD recoding in progress from my DVICO HD tuner, works great!

Cons: The interface is a bit clunky. Realize the Key is to have everything on one drive. Anywhere else it gets annoying. I would not recommend this if you are an idiot. Windows can be stupid and not let the oplay refresh the drives on the network so i found i would just setup the oplay with the direct drive and password, and set it up. Biggest con is that out of the box this thing does not have a password protected telnet terminal. WTheck is up with that! whatever ,its fixable. Just don't be an idiot.

Had a few problems that firmware upgrades fixed. Biggest issue I had was that when my TV was power cycled, the Oplay would default back to its orginal 480i resolution, so i would have to go back and reset the box and TV and change the res... so it became a real pain, easies fix was just leaving the TV on all the time with the Oplay screen saver running.

Other Thoughts: Box took a bit of work but it really changed my life, dramatically increasing my laziness, in that I could watch all 10 seasons of Stargate with out getting off my couch to change discs....

I will be getting another for my parents...
