This review is from: LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrader with Web Browsing
Pros: Plays all my music and .mp4/mkv blu-ray movies. Was a breeze to setup and its really small. Comes with a remote. Love this thing. I just needed a way to get all my movies to my tv and this thing does exactly that. You can also hook up an external hd to it and play all your media that way; this thing supports a ton of file types.
Cons: When I first got it, it was very slow like others have mentioned. Just make sure you do the firmware updates that come up, even though they sometimes take forever to update. So its not so much a con after you update but if you dont its annoying on how long everything takes. Small complaint but the remote needs to have good line of sight to work. Meaning if its behind something or around a corner with something blocking it, it wont work. Not a big deal for me but for people who need to have everything hidden all the time it might be a problem.
Other Thoughts: To the guy who said he couldnt get it to stream from his computer (and others)- you need to use the Nero MediaHome 4 that it came with. Thats why it came with it.....the program is super easy to use, literally. You put the disc in, install it which takes about 4 minutes, you select folders to share and once its done it will ask if you want to start the server. you click yes. now everytime you start your computer it will be in your task bar with the server running. Amazing. To the guy who said rewind and fast forward was slow, yes it is if you just use the back and forward buttons. If you press menu when a movie is playing and go the the reel icon where it has the time of movie (should be the second one down) and just hold down the right arrow button it will fast forward REALLY fast. Makes it really easy.READ FULL REVIEW
