Experience: 1 Days


Plays Netflix and I can put movies on a USB to watch them in my home theater.

Experience: 7 Days


Almost everything you need in that box.
Very clean Interface.
NetFlix APP.
No really
Great alternative to replace Apple TV or Google.

Experience: 7 Months


Great in theory, if ANYthing worked.
Every feature it claims to have, doesn't work properly
Netflix repeatedly disconnects, stops playing shows, refuses to connect on startup, freezes, etc.

Video streaming from PC is choppy, even on 30/30 internet with a top of the line PC.

The device will randomly restart, or freeze. Even when it is working properly, it is painfully slow loading.

Sometimes fails to read USB drives. (different drives, at different times, so its not the drive that is the issue)

I was extremely excited for this product when I bought it, as it looks great on paper. In reality this thing is not worth the shipping I paid to get it here, let alone the cost of the device itself.

Looking around online leads to many other people having similar problems, I only wish I had looked around before hand.

Experience: 1 Months


- Good value (99.00$ price match)
- Easy to set-up
- Play a decent number of file format and codec
- Nice internet goodies
- Does not play all file format
- Does not support Domain shares natively
- Does not play all subtitle format
If you are looking for a media player that can play everything, this media player is not for you. This media player is as good as any Samsung Smart-TV or Play Station 3.
I've read that you can change the firmware for custom firmware that add a lot of new features.

Experience: 5 Months


Plays many file types, youtube app plays videos from mobile device, audio/video sync adjustments
Slow menus, phone app is limited
I bought two of these from NCIX, and also have an ATV2 with XBMC - all of which are used exclusively to stream movies and shows from a Synology NAS box. Right out of the box there was 2 back to back firmware updates. The menu layout is simple to use, which makes it user friendly for those "non-techies" in the house. Setting up a connection to my media server was easy. One excellent feature I only discovered recently was an audio/video sync adjustment setting - for those videos when the audio goes out of sync, it is very quick and easy to fix on the fly! There is a mobile app that acts as a remote over wifi, but it is very limited. The mobile app is slow, and you can not browse for movies/shows like you can with the XBMC remote app. Overall I am satisfied with this device.

Note: If you plan on streaming to this device over wifi, make sure you have a decent wifi router! Or you may have buffering/stuttering issues on video playback. I had this problem and was ready to throw my WDTV's out the window, but then upgraded to a higher-end wifi router and problem solved!

Experience: 2 Years


The WD TV Live features industry-leading format support and built-in Wi-Fi. Its broad selection of streaming services includes Spotify, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, and Pandora, among many others. The interface is friendly, and video and sound quality are as good as you'd expect.
The software still has a few bugs to iron out.
If you want a device that will stream and play back your downloaded files, this is one of the leading models.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Beautiful UI
Plays anything
Auto converts (crappy) AAC format to stereo
Supports multiple share types (Windows, NFS, Mac)
Some menu options are a little buried/hidden
This is the best media player you can buy for around $100. The UI is beautiful (coming from a Patriot Box Office).
It plays anything I throw at it, including Blu-Ray ISOs. One surprising feature is that it decodes the horrible AAC format on the fly to Stereo in case your receiver is old (like mine) and can't decode it. It can output all of the sound over optical (again, for older receivers).
It supports multiple share types, though I've only tested the Windows Share.
It has Netflix and other apps. As I mentioned, it has an optical port for those of us with receivers lacking HDMI.
One complaint I have is that some of the menu options are a little buried and difficult to get to in a hurry, but this isn't a deal breaker.
Though my experience is limited (I had a Patriot Box Office then this), I have to say this must be one of the best media players out there. Highly recommended.

Experience: 1 Days


Works great, easy to set-up, easy to change settings for dns changers, lots of choices
Bit sluggish, location doesn't update  automaticly
Great unit, works well, menus are a tad sluggish but nothing bad. Just keep in mind if you switch dns settings to get US services, you MUST go to time settings and reset location or it will not give you access to US apps like hulu or pandora

Experience: 2 Days


Streams great wifi and ethernet network or internet.
good quick playback
nice customizable menu and backgrounds
decent selection of internet services
easy to navigate and setup was quick
Id have liked to see hulu supported hopefully WD can add it in a firmware. but its no biggie as usually use one or other and it has netflix
So I bought two of these for my parents and set them up for them as a early xmas gift.

It was super easy to hook them up one is on wireless and one is on wired both are streaming very well not noticeable difference between the two as far as lag or anything goes.

Netflix streaming was quick and easy to setup.

also has some other neat online services that you can favourite ect. YouTube services - weather - and some other media services.

everything was setup quickly mom was upstairs streaming movies off a Network HDD on a system i setup here for them and dad was streaming video on netflix last i checked :P.

i love easy devices like that for them the less i have to teach and the easier it is for them the happier they are and thus the happier i am in return.

Experience: 36 Days


Plays anything you throw at it as far as I can tell
Access to lots of services
Android/iOS apps if you can't find the remote
No exFat, ext3 or ext4 support for connected drives (FAT, FAT32 and NTFS are supported)
Been using this for a year, happily, playing anything I can get my hands on on it. Works with anything I've thrown at it. Plays off network servers, DNLA servers (e.g. Plex), files on external hard drives and USB sticks and hard drives.
Thoroughly recommended. You'll only match this with a HTPC or perhaps a Rasberry Pi running Rasbmc or Rasplex.

Comment: The fact that you get all this in the wee box for just $100 is quite something, really. The WD TV Live looks like the one of the best products and a great bargain in its category.
