Good product. Has a few small flaws but they would not stop me recommending it I have found it very easy to use, I am yet to find a file it couldn't play. I have tested it only briefly with a high definition movie over the network which played well except for a few brief glitches at the very beginning. It has crashed on me about twice for reasons I am unsure of but returned to work after powering it off and back on, and then hasn't repeated the issues. It will not read EXFat hard drive format. I was unable to format my drive in FAT16 or FAT32 and a friends Mac will only read FAT not NTFS formatted disks which is a little annoying, hopefully they will add support for this in the next software update. (It reads FAT16, FAT32, NTFS) All up it is nice and small and looks ok, works well and is easy to use. I would recommend it to a friend. 12 May 2014
slim easy to use I have just purchased this product and have found it easy to use remote is simple small and easy to navigate and having westlink on my tv makes it the more easier that you don't have to use source on remote. I'll comment later on the WiFi part of it as l have not tried it. Picture quality is very clear too. 25 April 2014
this product is unreliable this product worked for a short time (about 6weeks or there abouts) and the stopped;who knows why? when it did work it was ok, easy to use although it was difficult to get the remote to operate the unit. All in all it has been a waste of money,garbage. 27 August 2013
Mixed bag Is flakey streaming from media player (doesn't like high bitrate, metadata crashes it, no volume levelling (although that is really a microsoft problem)). Doesn't handle VOB's well (pauses between each chapter). Great workgroup functionality and connectivity. Stylish and unobtrusive unit. Home position is USB drive. Would be nice to remember last place and folder. Subtitles are on by default, bit annoying. Phillips customer support and warranty is excellent. 25 August 2013
