This is/was £76 from PC World in store, I bought one last week. Took it back as its naff, doesn't work properly with UK Netflix, check WD forums.

It's naff because it doesn't work with UK Netflix? Mine works fine, and in case you didn't know, it does a lot more than just allow you to watch movies on demand.

Doesn't work for me, nor does it for all these people, you must be a lucky one.

Fully aware what else it does and I did connect it to my NAS drive fine, but I use Netflix regular, its the main function I wanted from the box, didn't work properly, therefore its naff, IMO. Also, it didn't play some MKV files which my old Seagate Goflex TV played fine. So stuck with using Goflex TV for MKV files and Xbox for Netflix, annoying having to use 2 different devices but least they both work.

it logs into netflix, then for some unknown reason it logs you out without warning, yes it is naff and some of use like netflix and dont like STEALING movies from torrent sites.

The major selling point of this for WD was the Netflix app, which does not work right, and has not done since january.

I bought one from there EBay shop, works great with Netflix and iPlayer, can't really fault it, seems so much better than the previous model.

I now have it connected to Netflix US and wow what a selection I ow have.

And it does play 1080p

Unblock US works with all devices to unlock US Netflix, but you have to pay $4.99 for it now, no longer free.

Must be hard scrolling past it. Why don't you try posting a "deal" if it bothers you that much.... at least people bother to try and put deals on here and not just write pointless comments.

Not everyone downloads illegal movies. Many rip their own personal collection to a HDD. You can buy DVDs for next to nothing now. It is a lot more convenient browsing from said HDD than putting discs in a player. Same goes for MP3's. Ripping CDs and playing them through your surround setup via a streamer.

Yes there will always be pirates, that is at least until digital downloads are a lot more reasonable cost wise.

Hopefully they'll release a fix for whatever problem you are having with Netflix.

lovefilm and netflix are both hobbled in the uk by the media companies which limits their usefulness .. if it were available on more plaforms (i have reached my limit with using lovefilm via an internet browser or my ipad) then it might very well have an impact on piracy

making things available in the US and not the UK just illustrates the one sided power the media groups have gained during the "mandleson meetings" years :-( and actually encourages piracy through frustration of users !

They have put the price up now on there Ebay store to £80.04p ???
