    Ive got one of these.
    When it works its seriously QUALITY, however it can be frustrating.

    I paid a similar price around 6 months ago.

    If youve got spare cash and are a gadget freak have a punt.
    The metadata could be better to setup and the wifi can be flakey.

    Other than that a nice bit of kit.

    always wanted one of these but i bought an LG BP620 BluRay player a while ago which gives me pretty much all of the same content - YouTube, Netflix, Lovefilm, Blinkbox e.t.c...

    This is a excellent player, its played everything I've thrown at it. Highly recommended.

    I love this I got one for our bedroom and I has a lovely UI picks up the NAS boxes with out any issue including windows and unix shares

    Good: Plays almost everything.
    Bad: Interface is quite sluggish and lacks finesse. Nightmare to setup with a NAS. Tech support from WD sucks a$$ big time. Buggy as he'll firmware which they keep screwing up with 'updates'?!

    Personally wouldn't have purchased if I had the chance to try it out.

    I love mine bought it when it was on here earlier this year, paid about £65 but brilliant piece of kit plays everything I throw at it and now I have a new 3D TV streams MVK files off computer no problem.

    It doesn't work with DLink NAS unlike V1 which did so I got a refund and bought v1 and as others have said the software is hit and miss - definitely a miss from me. It is now cheaper to buy the newer version because it is **** and the old version is more expensive - if you can actually find a new one.

    There was a update yesterday to improve NAS capability, my local tesco have these in stock for around the same price (pontypridd )

    Never had any bugs with mine. Streams perfectly from my Dlink nas and never had any issues.
    Only think I still can't get it to see is photos I've added to the nas, however not that fussed as only use it for video.

    Works perfectly fine with my DLink NAS. I would agree with others the interface looks great but can be a bit slow. That said it plays every file I have. This area is getting more competitive now so I will probably invest in something new soon but this is a great starter media player.

    Oh and this really isn't just a player for Netflix etc as commented on, those are just added extras ;)

    Can't vote hot or cold for this as it can usually be had for around this price.
    It is a great player and really easy to set up but note it DOES NOT SUPPPORT LOVEFILM which is really annoying.

    so...in layman terms what is it and how does this compare to virgin media?

    Is there better ones for a little more money?

    I own the old version of this but technology has moved on... like Handsome Hank I just bought the LG BP620 and plays everything with Lovefilm too...

    I am after something similar.

    I have a 3D tv, so I need a player that will play 3D files. I also want a player that I can access and stream from websites. Does the LG do this?

    check out these pics i snapped of the premium content on the BP620. Shows you what you can access. Google Maps on a 32 inch TV is .. interesting :)

    One thing this has that nothing else does is a slingplayer interface, so I can take it on holiday and watch and control sky over wifi

    I'm a big fan of these and even with the current firmware that has some issues: Windows share over wifi flaky, features removed e.g. cannot view movie trailers, etc.. for basic video playback this is still the best player around.

    Great audio and video quality, simple to set up use and control. Would have given it 10/10 when it had the older firmware but last month's update knocks it back to 9/10.

    I had the WD MK2, WD TV Live, several Android players.

    Great deal.

    Here is my situation, I recently bought the 32" Blaupunkt 3d tv that was on offer here a few weeks ago.

    I have plenty of 3D files on a usb drive, but the tv does not playback direct from the drive, so I need something that will play these files.

    I also want something that connects to the internet via wifi, so I can stream sports channels etc over the internet, channels like firstrow.

    I don't really need a blu ray player as I have a PS3 and I want something small as it is in the bedroom.

    I have been looking at android players, WDTV players, smart boxes and smart blu ray players.
