Argosy Rocks 2/17/2010 7:10:59 AM

Pros: Saved me from transferring media to DVD for home playback.

Cons: Careful not to use HDMI cable on one TV and then attempting to use component or composite without resetting unit.

Overall Review: Wish it they could make more formats readable other than what it can now.

Great but can't leave USB plugged in. 10/23/2009 9:04:39 PM

Pros: I have owned this unit for about 6 months now with no problems. It is quiet (Quieter than my Tivo) and seems to play just about everything I throw at it. I particularly like the way I can rip a dvd to a folder on it and it will play the dvd just like in a player (Not just each VOB). I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the fact that it will not play if the USB is connected. :-( So if you have it connected to dump items to it (Torrents,etc..) then you have to disconnect it from the USB in order for it to display any on screen programming and play those files.
So the statement "Download video through PC and immediately playback on TV" is not very accurate. It should say "Download video through PC, then disconnect USB and immediately playback on TV"

Cons: Will not play to TV when connected to USB.

Overall Review: I wish I would have just spent a little more and gotten one with a LAN connection.

this thing rocks! 9/3/2009 7:58:14 AM

Pros: This is an awesome media playback solution! before owning this i was plugging my laptop into my tv to watch downloaded videos and the playback was sometimes out of sync and choppy. NOT ANYMORE! this player is smooth, compact, portable, and easy to use. the on screen interface is simple, clean, user friendly, and a lot nicer looking than I even anticipated. remote works great from ten feet away.

Cons: software was a little finicky to install.... ended up not using it. i don't need it for how i want to use this device anyway. just copy files to the drive and that is all you really need to do.

Overall Review: the manual is ok, it kind of over complicates using this device, it really is nearly plug and play. the software is in that same boat. i spent an hour thinking i needed the software to use this device and i couldnt get it to install properly, frustrating! figured out it is not necessary and i am happy as a clam!!!

Remote usage for folders 2/3/2009 1:37:46 PM

Pros: To the guys who say if you select a folder it autoplays the first file in the folder: instead of pressing the Select/OK button, press the RIGHT arrow and you will go into the folder without autoplaying anything.
Just FYI.

Cons: see older review.

great 1/20/2009 9:05:30 PM

Pros: plays many different video formats, plays dvd folder very well and avi files. will buy 1.5tb and take advantage of the wifi capabilitie. i read it will play jpg pics as a slide show and enable you to play music but havnt tried that. software works well, enables you to hide folders and password protect them, i created playlist of some avi cartoons and it worked well but i have the avi files in a folder and it will automatically play them anyway enabling you to forward through each file within a folder.
transfers 700mb of avi file in about 30 seconds

Cons: when reviewing folders on tv it instantly plays first file within folder, flimsy remote but very functional, no way as loud as xbox 360 but does make noise. does not play wmv files,
takes a few minutes transfering 4gig of dvd folder from pc.
the rca output and component output are combined into 1/4" jack plug, but the 1.5tb has the standard output connects.

Overall Review: overall i really like it and am going to purchase the 1.5tb, and hope to keep it pluged into tv and take advantage of the wifi and load it up over night.
