2Wire MediaPoint Digital Media Player w/ Blockbuster OnDemand

 

Overall, the box is essentially free since your "prepaying" for 25 movie rentals. There are no shipping charges. It does exactly what it advertises, nothing more. The recent software update has resulted in a significantly more stable experience. WiFi...

Easy to use, straightforward interface, friendly customer service, no nonsense setup. Movies look good and the box does what it's supposed to do... play on demand movies! The ability to download movies to watch later rocks too

Movie previews don't seem to work, the remote is very small and that can be hard to see in a dark room, the set top box tends to get hot during use. Once in a while, the box wont download the movie "viewing license" Customer service fixes this tho

It has at least one hardware rev and MANY software revs plus a better selection of movies before it is worth the money.

It is a great idea when it works. 1 out of 5 times you can find a movie you like and it downloads and plays seemlessly. When it works, it is cool

A large selection of movies you don't want to watch. Unstable OS, flakey network driver which requires frequent reconfiguration (still can't get the Ethernet jack to work), a weak UI paired with a decidedly cheesy remote, and heavy video compression

At first I was very excited about getting the box and 25 prepaid OnDemand movie rentals for $99. That excitement quickly faded when trying to setup the box. The wireless connection was extremely poor, even though my notebook computers and wireless...

Nobel bluff to try to keep customers from defecting

Poor wireless network connection

The first movie I tried to watch was Iron Man. After about 90 minutes the box rebooted. Unfortunately I wasn?t able to resume the playback so I started the playback again. The fast forward feature didn?t work so I decided to watch the same 90 minutes...

None except that it is affordable. However, considering its capabilities it is still a waste of money

None of the features work as advertised. Their customer support is the worst I have seen and has to be one of the worst of any company
