Pros: GREAT, product. DLNA makes it even better. I don't have any HD cable boxes at my house, and this just gave me access to all of the HD channels I have been paying for but haven''t had the equipment to access. I can use my PS3 to watch TV!
Cons: The worst part of the setup, was the waiting in line at my local Comcast office just to get a CableCARD to allow this device to access all the encrypted channels. CableCARDs are required by law to be offered at no additional charge, and Comcast STILL tried to charge me for one. The other part of the setup that sucked was the activation of the cable card. Not sure if it was the connection to the box or the box itself, but activation took more than an hour and multiple phone calls to the activation department (mainly due to the call center being offshore).
The only issue I have come across is streaming to my PS3. The video streams sometimes stutter a small bit, however that could be caused by any number of things and may not necessarily be the HDhomerun Prime.
Other Thoughts: The iOS app requires an in app purchase of $9.99 for the codecs to watch the decrypted Channels. I might consider buying more than 1 of these per house, if I had more Streaming boxes or gaming consoles to replace the set top boxes makes you rent.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought two drives. The one that did work is great! Transfer speed is pretty good.
Cons: One of them was DOA. Wasn't able to initialize the disk in Disk Management. I am RMA-ing for a replacement. Hopefully I will have better luck with the replacement.
Other Thoughts: Although I did get a DOA drive, I'm sure it was just a "luck of the draw" thing. I would still recommend the WD Green drives, as I have had a 1 TB one that is almost 5 years old, and still going strong.READ FULL REVIEW
