Pros
Easy to access media files
Cons
HDMI stopped working after 5 weeks.
Summary
Junk. Great at first, then HDMI output stopped working. No warranty from NCIX. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Pros
-Plays pretty much all file's I've thrown at it.
-Small and simple
Cons
-No support for DTS
-Not network connected
Summary
I bought this for my parents to have access to my media files stored on an external drive. No major complaints so far, I've had some issues with file seeking with HD movies, sometimes the system locks up but I just need to reset it. Keep your eyes peeled for the Live version of this as it addresses many of the common weaknesses of this model.

Pros
Cheap, easy to use, great quality
Cons
No DTS Support, no Ethernet support
Summary
Bought this for a new TV we also purchased. It's very easy to setup, and has a great interface. HDMI output too! Works great. Very happy with the purchase.

Pros
* Recognizes and plays almost al media files and subtitle formats.
* 1080p upconverting.
* 2 USB ports.
* Inexpensive.
* Firmware is still being regulary updated.
Cons
* Tiny remote is pretty useless and forces you to go through a menu for basic things like switching subtitles, zooming, etc.
* It's not very responsive, especially for video actions like fast-forward and even pause.
* Can't transfer content between two USB devices.
* Has frozen on me a couple of times with an MKV file, even with latest firmware.
Summary
It is not without its flaws (sluggish, bad remote), but at that price point (when on sale), I don't think you can find a better 1080p media player. If full HD is not a priority, then you might want to consider something else.

Pros
Plays many formats, including mkv with x264 codec. Can power 2.5" USB drives. Hackable!
Cons
No included ethernet port
Summary
I bought this device to play x264 mkv files in my living room. I originally had a 2.5" drive connected to it and was pleased with the fact that a single USB cable was enough to power it, making it very portable. I later found out that you could run hacked firmware and decided to give that a shot. It was relatively simple and it allowed me to plug in a usb ethernet adapter. I tried using a wireless G connection, but that's too slow for 720p HD content though a wireless N connection might! All in all, great product

PS: I might add that in the meantime there have been a few bluray players that support the mkv format though their price is still too high... Once they hit the 150$ area, I may change my vote to one of those!

Pros
Plays a lot of formats. Very small form factor. Can't go wrong with the price when it's on sale.
Cons
Doesn't have an ethernet port. Capability to stream on this device over the network should be officially supported by WD.
Summary
The WD HD TV Media Player is an all-in-one solution in a tiny and affordable package - very simple and fast.

I specially like the ability that it remembers and gives you the option to start playing from where you left off.

Pros
Wide range of video formats supported. Very price effective.
Cons
Sometimes it's slow and unresponsive. Handles mp3's wonkily.
Summary
Get this, and a large volume external hard drive, rip your DVD's onto the hard drive, and you can put the DVD collection into storage. This is a very handy and convenient way to run your movie collection - it's tiny and takes up almost no space.

Pros
-plays almost everything
-compact
-price
Cons
-runs hot if not ventilated
-no dts decode
-slow at loading pictures
Summary
It plays almost anything I've tried on it. Just too bad it doesn't play rmvb. Has the right connections I need as well with hdmi and optical. Just doesn't decode dts signals or do dts-hd pass-through. Got a few of these for others and so far so good. Does run a bit hot if not ventilated.

Pros
- Plays my HD movies without a hiccup
- Small and cheap
Cons
- No PGS subtitle support
- New version coming out soon (WD to drop  support on v1.0?)
Summary
Great little streamer. It plays my full quality HD rips without a hitch. I send the untouched video stream right to the TV and stream the core HD audio streams to my receiver. Some people will complain about no TrueHD/DTS HD, but there are so many reviews out there that have shown there is little-to-no-difference between those codecs and their core streams. And this is on ~$20,000+ audio systems. One thing I wish it had was PGS subtitle support, which would mean I wouldn't have to convert subtitles into any format. Please WD!
