1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS

Pros: works as advertised....if you play files smaller than 1gig !!!

Cons: seriously, what use is an HD media player than can't play files larger than will play but chokes at the 1gig mark - unit becomes totally unresponsive and must be unplugged. Check Iomegas user support forum for the horror storys related this this unit. Anyone that says 'it plays everything they throw at it' must be on Iomegas payroll. This product rates 5/5 smoking turds. Run, don't walk away from this product.

Manufacturer Response:

Both the ScreenPlay Director and the ScreenPlay Director TV Link have been thoroughly tested with a wide variety of files larger than 1GB – as you point out, most movie files are larger than a gig, and we have tested literally thousands. The problem you experienced could be due to several factors – most likely the compression on the files or the speed of your network. I suggest contacting Iomega Customer Service for additional troubleshooting.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: So far it plays everything I throw at it, from HD videos that I have downloaded to homemade ISO images. My wife loves the fact that I can take it to whatever room we want to watch TV in.

Really easy to copy files over to the hard drive.

Cons: No information on how to setup thumbnails for movies. I expected this would be a problem seeing as how this product is so new. As of yet I have only seen one thumbnail show up and I really did nothing to cause it but to watch a movie.

The remote takes a little getting use to, it is really not your standard remote but that is no biggie.

Other Thoughts: I was tempted to order the Wifi addon so that I could connect with my network, but decided against it. I pulled a usb Dlink wifi card and tried it and to my surprise it worked :)

I was able to connect to a network but I was unable to connect to my network. To clarify I have a neighbor that does not understand how to secure their network and so I was able to connect to it with no issues. When I tried to connect to my network (running netgear) I was unable to do so it would just keep hanging on me. If I had to take a guess I would say it is the netgear router that is the culprit, even after a firmware update I was unable to connect.

Just to test out what it could do I connected a hardwire to it and was impressed at the fact that I could easily watch youtube videos.

At this point my only regret is that the 2tb version is not out as I think I will quickly fill this one up.
