Experience: 2 Years
nice and small, works well,
watch the updates
works better than my patriot with more options. just watch the firmware. if all is working fine don't update

Experience: 14 Months
Customizable firmware, plays any file you can throw at it. Nice GUI. DTS output. Great picture quality. Small form factor. 2 USB outputs. Variety of Connections. Price/Value, manufacture support.
Some issues with network stability, requires a reboot occasionally. Can be slow with large files. Styling. Runs on the warm side.
purchases this about 1yr ago, used it for quite awhile before upgrading to a HTPC. It played anything i threw at it; USB keyboard worked flawlessly with it. Did have some issues with Wifi but may have had something to do with my Dlink router. Had to do a few reboots to get it to recognize my network, stability can be an issue; not for the impatient. It decoded DTS,Dolby Digital and playback was always smooth; even with large <8gb files. The Gui was nice not great and supported all sorts of resolutions. Firmware updates keep coming and adding new features.

Experience: 6 Months
Plays everything I through at it
specific remote dont lose it
update  the firmware and you can play netflix :)

Experience: 15 Days

play's everything I need it to.
So far so good. it has played everything that I have tried to play so far. music, avi's, mkv's, pictures, all have played flawlessly. The remote has really good range on it as well. It is a great little unit to have instead of using the laptop at the tv and for 80 bucks it's worth it.

Experience: 2 Weeks

Good video quality. Small form factor. 2 x USB ports.
DVD menu unsupported. DTS unsupported. Non-standard connectors. Unfriendly remote.
I'd qualify this media player as OK. It's not outstanding, but still a little above average. It does what it's supposed to do, but there are still much room for improvement. Btw, recently I've encountered 2 movies that would make the player freeze and require a power cycle to bring it back.

Experience: 1 Years

none so far
Started using this as a more "portable" solution for my general multimedia device, progressed as to become one of the best tool for digital media type of artwork.

Small, easy to hide, plus being able to support various media format allows it to be one of the best solutions for digital media type of artwork installation; not to mention this little bugger manage to run non-stop for weeks without giving me any problems. After a year it is still running strong.

The price seems to stay at the same range for the longest time, kind of hard to wait around for another sale. But for what it can do I can't complain much

plays everything, small, frequent firmware updates
occasional bugs
The WDTV Live might be the best $100 I've ever spent on electronics. I use it on the TV in my bedroom to play content downloaded from the internet via a USB hard drive. It gets used every night and works like a champ.

So far I've encountered only one series of videos that this device won't play. Other than that, it works flawlessly with divx, xvid, and x264 (mkv) content.

Rarely it decides it doesn't want to play any videos, but if I reset the unit or navigate back to the root menu, it's fixed.

I have not used the device to stream any content online or over my home network, so I'm unable to comment on its network functionality.

Finally, it's easy to use. I liked my WDTV so much that I bought one for my extremely non-tech-savvy grandparents and they use it regularly without issue.

versatility, simplicity
Runs hot
This is by far the best media player to simply customize with b-rad firmware upgrade(free) and moviesheets. Also look for PhyschoTHC's custom menus (takes away a usb port though). As another reviewer said, with a large movie collection this thing isn't great. If you are connecting a 2TB drive to it full of organized content, it's a beauty. I've done about 8 for friends and family and they are amazed they can throw away their DVD collection! hah. still room for improvement though. Remote sucks and lack of onboard memory to help with large databased contet.

Easy to use
Play 1080p
Work with old television
Menu is a bit frustrating when loading usb drive
The remote work but slow to react, like cheap electronic controller
Very hard to change to an alternative firmware and display full movie template
Got like 10 for friends and they work great. I start about 2 month to add movie template with Brad firmware and ThumGen. All i can say is /$%&"*?"("$?&(?&*/%?. Pretty easy if you only want some cute poster with 20-50 movies, but when you got like 8TB with like 1500 divx, 500 1080p/720p, 1000 dvd-r, this is really a pain in the a**. It can take up 30 minutes to just load the picture and template.

For the audio/video, it's a perfect little machine with all the plug you need.

Experience: 5 Months
Good streaming.Ease of use.
Firmware updates (very slow on getting them out)
Seriously it play all my MKVs flawlessly. Good streaming. Ease of use.

Comment: Another site reviews the WDTV Live, seems to be a worthy successor to the original.

Comment: Rave review - this media player is the best we've ever tested and it's not leaving the studio. W7 networking will probably need firmware for full functioning
