Recent reviews:

I recently decided to start a little weekend project of totally digitizing my 200+ home DVD collection. I wont get into any arguments over the legal ramifications of this kind of project, however rest guaranteed every digital movie in my collection is a straight rip of a physical DVD I own. That being said, I really needed a good choice to really “deliver” these movies to my HD TV in my living room. I have an Xbox 360 but that just didn’t seem to be making the cut. So I started researching these cool smart set-top boxes. At 1st I was convinced the Roku XS 2 was the way to go – but I started reading more and more about its lack of particular filetype support (i. E. MKV, M4V, AVI to name some). That and it really didn’t do network streaming/sharing well (if at all). I saw the WD TV Live HUB with 1TB harddrive for 199 and thought that was just a little too steep for my price range (the Roku is 99 afterall). Then I in some way accidentally found this device on Amazon. The price was right, and the specifications seemed right. Too good to be true? No This device is unbelievable 1st of all, I can not get over how tiny it’s Its literally thinner than a regular DVD case and maybe as tall as 2 dvds stacked. It sits nicely right beside my 360 with some space It only comes with a cheap pair of composite (or maybe part I didn’t check) cables but I quickly ignored them caused by another HDMI cable I had lying around. That coupled with the extra optical cable I had also finished this package – though Im sure many will argue that its pretty missing that the unit didn’t come with either in the box (I agree but both cables can just be bought for another 10 bucks so not that big of a deal and I did have extras lying around).

—————UPDATE 5/25/2012——————-there is been lots of changes since writing this review but just this week, WD updated the youtube leanback app and made a ton of enhancements . Now I can play my new videos from my subscriptions playlist 🙂 there is also more data provided about each video and a sleek ui overhaul. You may also control the app through your iphone/android device (have not tested this still). Nice job WD Loving this so much now ————— /Update—————————-I’d like to start by letting you all know that I am picky about my electronics and I am not easily pleased These days, so I generally play with some number of merchandise before sticking with one. I have gone through the wdtv live plus (grey model with small remote), sony smp-n100, and the apple tv 2 before trying out this device (also used different BD players, gaming consoles for netflix/youtube streaming). I must say that this unit takes the cake by what you get for the price. Too lazy to get you my full story and thoughts so I am just going to sum it up and give comparisons to the atv2, which I’d think about the next best choice for a set top box. -Video quality exceeded my expectations (netflix, youtube, network streaming)-Youtube steams HD (unlike smp-n100 and other revisions of the wdtv live/plus)-Wifi is integrated in this unit but will not see my N network (no big deal)-Youtube will not let you to access your subscriptions from the app, only your favorites list, search, well-liked videos, and your published videos (biggest downside for me)-Can stream almost every video file format I could ever use-Netflix app on this device functions well, better than other devices I have used.

I got this media player elsewhere locally, before Amazon dropped their price. Anyway, the GUI is good. It is easily navigable, not cluttered at all, presented in a beautiful package, and surely easy to read. All pluses there. The 1st videos I attempted to play were 720p mkv files over wireless network (on a 1TB HDD connected to my computer in the basement via USB). After taking some seconds to gather the 1st few pictures from the USB–> wireless connected storage device, the WDTV Live streamed the videos seamlessly I paused one for like 8 minutes while making dinner, and it resumed with no obvious glitches, artifacts, or generating/buffering. The second (and only other) file type I attempted to play was a 1080p TS file I had recorded from my cable box. This took a bit longer between hitting play and seeing video on the screen, however time was minimal. I’d like to say no more than 4 or 5 seconds. Again, it had to pull the video from the HDD to the computer via USB,, then again from the computer to the media player over the wireless G network. This video also played flawlessly No artifacting, no generating/buffering/, no audio sync issues or dropped frames. It plays video from hella far away on the network beautifully, and resumes from pause just also I only have 2 cons listed below:-The out-of-box direct software update took EONS I was waiting for the newest firmware to download for nearly 30 minutes. -The remote control has greatly raised rubber buttons that can not be pressed in fast succession, or must be pressed a bit harder to get signal sent. It is annoying, however I am sure I will get used to it.
