I'm in love

 

I have owned this model and the WDTV Live Hub, and this one is way faster.

More responsive than the other WD models

No internal storage

Disappointed

 

I bought this as a second unit and was disappointed that Netflix support is withdrawn. I have bought the last 3 versions of WDTV and been happy with all of them. Sadly, I will be returning this one due to lack of Netflix support

Straightforward interface and robust product. Excellent build quality. Ability to playback many different file types. Great network performance

Lost one major app (Netflix) in this version. Addition of other not-so-popular sites do not make up for it

Love it!

 

I purchased the Kdlinks HD700 which isn't a bad media player, but the video quality lacks detail, it take about 2-3mins to discover my network, lacks other popular media services, and cost more than the other 2 I purchased. The Apple-TV player works...

This is the 3rd media player I've purchased and this one does everything I want and does it well. I use it with my Western Digital EX2 NAS & portable USB-3.0 drive. It also has a Slingbox app along with many other services, and It reads .iso files. It...

Took one Egg off because WD left out Netflix in the apps

WD Media Player

 

Extremely satisfying performance. Armchair ease of watching movies and making selections. List all available choices in large squares that are easy to read from a distance. Travels quickly through choices. One of the best items I have ever purchased

Once it is setup it is not a good idea to select add media. This causes doubling and loss of media linking

WD WDBYMN0000NBK-HESN

 

I am overall highly impressed, There are a few things I want to try out such as having a mini keyboard connected wirelessly but we will see in the future with that.

It has played everything I have thrown at it yet

No netflix, Had to manually resync when I added folder junctions to a network share. It requires write access to space, but a big fan of that since it creates xml, folders etc in the same folder as the files (this has the detailed movie/tv information)

Expected more

 

Get an older version, or buy a different make if you need Netflix. Otherwise it is a good media streaming unit.

It streams all the media I have thrown at it

WHAT? No NETFLIX APP ; I bought this because my dad has a first gen unit that is GREAT. I looked at several different models on NewEgg and all of a sudden they released the NEW model. I bought it ; I could not figure out why it did not have Netflix on...

It's, uh OK but not great!!

 

I have 3 of these, got my first one in 2012 and loved it so much that I got one for every TV in the house. Over the years and after a few firmware updates they are now so slow and sluggish the I am replacing them with Minix Boxes instead. They would be...

Can playback digital media on almost every format ; Great for Pandora and Sometimes NetFlix ; Really good Price ; Simple to setup and use

New firmware made it almost impossible to use ; NetFlix is super buggy now and crashes ; Looses connection to both the USB Thumb Drive and External Hard Drive all the time ; Menu is SOOOOOOOOOOO SLOW ; No HBO GO or Prime Video

Have had issues

 

I purchased this to feed a remote display TV with a single video. It mets those needs perfectly....light, HDMI, USB stick input, remote. BUT, it locks up periodically, evidently losing sight of the thumbdrive, and therefore the video file. The only way...

ease of use, works well WHEN IT WORKS
