I’m really really really really really really really really sorry I wasted $200 on this thing. It seems like a really cool product on the surface. I’ve had it for a few months now and I wish I could take it back and get my money back, but Best Buy won’t give me my money back. Only in store credit. There isn’t another product on the market that even comes close to doing what this product “claims” it does. There are a number of epic failures that I will list here in case anyone is thinking of buying one of these and expects the product to do something that it really doesn’t do.
#1 - It does not have a search feature for Netflix. What in the flying ■■■■ is the point of that? This means that you must use your computer (assuming you own one) to search for specific movies. The main reason I bought the thing was to stream netflix. Now I need use my computer every time I need to search for a movie. Really really really really lame.
#2 - It does not support the DVD-A format. This is not DVD-Video that comes on DVD movies. I’m talking DVD-Audio. It’s the industry standard format for High resolution surround sound audio. Now I’m still stuck using my DVD-Audio player and putting shiny round discs into it. Grrrrrrrrr. Another main reason I bought this thing was to eliminate the need for all my CD’s, DVD’s, Blue Rays, and DVD-Audio discs.
#3 - It crashes all of the time. Literally to the point where I have to pull the power cable and restart it. It does it multiple times a day, every day. This thing is less than three months old. It should work perfectly. It’s been sitting peacefully on my entertainment center and hasn’t moved since I bought it.
In my opinion, this thing is now a paperweight. It doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do, and even if it did, who wants to deal with the thing crashing all the time. I’m stuck with it for now, so here’s to hoping that they’ll come up with a firmware update that fixes these issues. If they don’t soon, I’ll be selling it on ebay and waiting for a product that actually works.
