Excellent Hardware/Firmware needs work
from Alta Loma, CA
Ive owned the first two generations and this one is the best because it can stream Netflix in 1080p, unlike its predecessors. Its only downfall is it still has some annoying firmware bugs that the previous generation didn't. I'm sure it will be updated sooner than later, which is why I would still recommend it above any other media player.

The Best TV Device EVER.
from Buenos Aires, Argentina
I have a Samsung Smart TV, Sony smart TV, and tested Android TV and Apple TV. None of these devices are even close to be as good as the WDTV. The interface is easy and intutive, requires no special configurations to see all devices in network (against other devices that are a PAIN [*]), reads ANY KIND OF VIDEO FILE in network or thru USB, with OUTSTANDING QUALITY. There is absolutely no loss of quality on 1080 streaming (MKV, AVI, MTS, MP4.....ALL FORMATS). Have not tested a single format that did not work.If in doubt, stop doubting, BUY THIS ONE.And the best, this is the ONLY BRAND that LISTENS to what people post in the support forums, and fix any possible bugs constantly, based on what the customers want or need.
Composite video output not so good
By Product Owner
Works great! This is a good product. The only thing I'm not happy with is the overall menu panel resolution. It is hard to read/see on my older NTSC TV screen. The text is too small to read and not clear or sharp enough. It probably would be fine on a HDTV. Happily satisfied so far with this purchase though.
