This is Western Digital's no frills media player with built in hard drive. Out of the box I discovered this needed firmware updating from the website because it wouldn't automatically identify or remember HDMI settings after powering off and I was using this with an HDMI cable. It seemed to default to AV composite output regardless. Firmware fixed this of course and it now works great. Quality of the playback of files is good, assuming the quality of your files is good naturally. As mentioned in one of the other reviews, it's best to use folders and sub folders with your media as it will make managing everything easier. For example have a Movie folder and then sub category folders by genre.

I'm very pleased with this device because 2TB is a lot of storage space if you have lots of DivX,xvid or any other MPEG4 variant files, all in a one solution box that plugs into a TV and lets you play them. The remote is small but functional and I quite like it. So yes I would recommend this device which is fairly simple to operate. Just be aware that you may have to update firmware, which means downloading the firmware from the website, putting it onto a USB stick (or external HDD USB) plugging it into the Elements Play Drive, where it will automatically identify and ask if you want to update. I didn't give a final star for the product because it comes with no AV composite cable or HDMI in the box, just the mains plug and a short USB to connect with a PC.

Size Name: 1TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As with other reviewers, I received this with only a 2-pin Asian adapter and had to buy a suitable UK plug. I also bought a AmazonBasics 2M Dual-Shielded High Speed HDMI Cable [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging] to link it up to my TV set. I found the process of transferring files onto it as simple as it is with any of my hard drives. For the purposes of getting a full picture of its functionality, I chose a selection of different media formats to use with it and there were no problems with any of them.

The lack of thumbnails was pretty much the only fault I can find with it; I found the process of looking through and searching for content generally rather more frustrating than need be, although I did enjoy making slide shows and viewing my content on a big screen from the comfort of a sofa rather than huddled over a 15 inch laptop screen on my desk.

Size Name: 1TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had this for several months, and I have to say that the jury is still out. While it says it can cope with almost every video format under the sun, I have found it struggling with all kinds of video formats that I would expect to work, MOV, M2TS, WMV. That said, when it works it's excellent, the video quality over HDMI is really good, although you'll need your own cables, and the menu format is a bit cool, but a bit strange.

It also shows your pictures, which could be useful for slideshows or background screen savers.

So in short, when it works, it's excellent, but when it doesn't, it's infuriating.

As this product combines storage & player it is perfect for what I need, as previously I was using a separately powered media player device plus a hard drive.
The WD Play 1TB is easy to install & easy to use, with a user-friendly display, plus the feature of saving where you stopped looking at a movie then prompting you to restart at that point.
Good value for money.

Great does everything - It plays .mkv files but not the sound, this apparently because WD would not buy the licence for DTS.
It is no biggy for me but if it is important to you to play .MKV file stay away.
On initial start up the Drive seems to lock up (especially if you have put allot of new files on it) - this is because it is building tables of the new files. Just leave it for a few mins, this only happens the once.

In overall, this is a good product. Easy to set up, functional remote and compatible with a lot of formats.
It plays 1080p x264 films with big bitrates without difficulties but have one small, but very important, problem. It doesn't play DTS audio.

Most of files that I tried to play have this format of audio and it won't play, since DTS is not supported in this model (neither in 2TB version).

There is a problem as well with subtitles, but it doesn't happen with all the mkv files, only some. WD released a firmware update fixing this subtitles issue but I wasn't able to perform the update. After checking on WD Official Forums I found out that a lot of people can't update their firmware neither (though there are some who could).

To sum things up, this could be a great media centre, if it could play all popular formats (like DTS audio) and if Western Digital could release a firmware update that works. If you don't care about subtitles and will never watch anything with DTS audio, go for it.

This is, to now, almost great. To now because I've only had it for a few months. It does exactly what it was bought for. I bought it to back up my media and it's almost spot on. Almost...... but not able to show music or movie thumbnails is a bit, only a bit, but a bummer non the less. It does when hooked up to the pc, but not on the tv. This is the reason for only four stars. It came wrapped well and on time with no damage to packaging or product.
