5.0 out of 5 stars utter bargain
About this review, note that I work in the consumer-electronics industry. I take part in the development of products similar to the WD Play. These products do not compete with the WD Play, so please consider my review to be unbiased and based on a modicum of knowledge for such products.

To summarise: I think it is an excellent product and beats others I have...

3.0 out of 5 stars I purchased this product from Amazon UK in Dec 2013 ...
I purchased this product from Amazon UK in Dec 2013, we seldom use iPlayer but as this was a feature when purchased we expect to be able to use this as part of the package paid for.

Searching the internet we find that may people have had the same issue with this product and it seems it no longer supports iPlayer, this being the case the product does not fulfil...

This box crashes all the time, streaming from a NAS or using Netflix. Very poor indeed. often very slow to navigate when it does work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this box, 13 May 2014

Has one job in my house and that's to stream Netflix with it's big red 'Netflix' button. Doesn't fancy that job mind you so it's just a box that plays Youtube and tells me what the weather is going to be over the next 5 days like I care.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, 8 May 2014

Having used XBMC on an old PC on my TV, the WD TV seems like a toy. Not enough functionality, response time is slow, not compatible with a lot of my videos...
Does the basic tasks well though, but not what I'd have liked

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Nasty, 26 April 2014

I bought this for a relative but it wasn't a very good present.

The user interface is horrible, but the main issue is that the device keeps freezes during playback. It's almost impossible to use the iPlayer or YouTube apps for this reason. Oddly, Netflix doesn't seem to be affected. Those are the only three apps of any interest to us. Maybe the streaming from a media server features (that we don't need) work really well, however, I doubt it.

I own an AppleTV which is a little bit more expensive but is at least 10,000,000 times better. It's also worth considering the Amazon Fire, if Amazon ever bother to release it in the UK. Forget about the WD TV Play, though, it's a brick.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flaky, underpowered, confusing interface, 21 April 2014

Many breakdowns, freezing, losing connection, inadequate USB pen connection, mammoth user manual, beta, beta, beta......

If you have one do not think you can not set it up - you are simply lucky if it works. Tried on 3 TVs.
