I was a big fan of the WD TV products. It allowed me to watch my videos from my NAS without effort and it did a good job.
Until recently when I wanted to add another device upstairs. My needs, view my NAS videos and Netlix. Like so many that have purchased the WD TV Live PLUS (which promised Netflix, why else did the create a new device, but to enable Netflix) it would NOT allow me to access Netflix CANADA. All things aside like warning purchasers etc etc it comes down to what the device can do.
I returned the WD Live and took the chance on a Dlink Boxee. I can say that I am very happy with my new purchase.
The Boxee is approx $80 more than the WD product but you get so much more back in funtionality. Here are a few hightlights:
-Netflix Canada support!!
-Over 180 other apps
-Awesome two sided remote with full keyboard
-Non IR remote, it works without line of site and can support other devices
-Built in Browser
-Much better interface
-Create favorites to local folders!
In a nutshell, it is so much better in so many respects. It seems to me that WD spends a minimum amount of time in R&D and ends up releasing a half ready product.
