WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Get ready to be frustrated...... 07/18/2012

This review is from: WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN

Pros: Netflix work great
Love the remote control app
Youtube works great
Quick responding interface and looks good
Lots of channels

Cons: Bricked my 3tb external hard drive ($350) when I plugged it into the media player, Lost 1000's of movies
Super frustrating when trying to play downloaded movies
For the short time I got it to actually see the movies on my hard drive (which took me about 10 hours of monkeying with it) it played them choppy and would randomly quit and kick you out to the home screen. I didn't get it to successfully play 1 full movie before it bricked my external, and they were XVID/AVI format, the simplest of the simple format.
Instructions are basically non-existent both in the packaging and on the website
The cords to the device are short and limit placement
The remote is kinda bulky

Other Thoughts: If you want to use it for Netflix, Youtube and other web services this is a great device. If your going to try to stream movies from your collection on your hard drive, you better back up your files cause you might lose it all.

D-Link DSM-312 MovieNite Plus HD Internet Streaming Box w/Netflix VUDU YouTube

3 out of 5 eggs Good for Netflix, Youtube & Pandora. 07/17/2012

This review is from: D-Link DSM-312 MovieNite Plus HD Internet Streaming Box w/Netflix VUDU YouTube

Pros: Very compact
easy to set up
remote is little and easy to use
Netflix works pretty good
Youtube works really well
Has a weather app that is pretty nifty
Picture quality is pretty good
No complaints about the sound either
Love that you can password the other apps

Cons: *** UNIT DOES NOT STREAM MOVIES FROM HOME PC!!! ***
Inputting/searching/navigation is a little frustrating, kinda laggy when typing in a search
Be sure you have a router that can handle a good amount of data xfer (i had to buy a new one) or it lags real bad
Only comes with the AV and power cable, no other cables included (for higher def)
Instructions are pretty much non existent
Power and AV cords are super short and limit placement of the device

Other Thoughts: This was my first only pure media streaming type device I've ever owned and for the price I would say it works pretty well. It's defiantly not as fast or smooth as watching Netflix on my Xbox or Wii however I've burned up 2 Xbox's from using Netflix all the time in the last 2 years. So this is a great alternative to purchasing a new Xbox every year.
