Pros: Quiet, runs cool. Excellent value for the price.

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: No problems with drivers, easy install on XP Pro. Used for medium gaming, video conversion/creation/viewing. I plan on trying out a Crossfire setup with another one of these in a month or two and will update my review then.

Working well for me

Pros: I have had no major issues with the box, so far it has played everything I have tried. I have two, one set up with a wired connection to my windows server, and the other is wireless using this adapter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122373. I have streamed 720p MKV's with no problems using this. Have tried only one 1080p and it worked as well, but your mileage may vary with your set up. The wireless adapter on the WD-TV is about 35-40 feet away and through a couple of walls. My router is a Netgear 3500 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122334&cm_re=netgear_3500-_-33-122-334-_-Product

Cons: I don't care much for the GUI it uses but I got used to it. It is sorta slow to boot up as people have stated before and the remote is sorta dinky.

Overall Review: Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase.

Pros: Quiet, and quick. Drive is sturdily built, tray is not flimsy and tracks well. Software is basic and works.

Cons: If you are using this for a HDTV computer and home theater setup you will want to upgrade the software.

Overall Review: I am happy with my purchase. Neweqq service was excellent, as it always is.

Can now play Divx and WMA

Comments: Current Beta software allows for DivX and WMA playback, this is the only reason I had not purchased this before now.
