The previous 1-star review initially put me off this unit but when I read other reviews on the web I had another look. Small and unobtrusive it has played everything I've tried so far. Great picture quality and it upscales movies very well. I've used it with an external USB Freecom hardrive which it accesses smoothly.

Remote is laid out sensibly and the response time is fine. There is some (small) delay between the various menus but an acceptable one. I also like the feature of being able to play music and then set a slideshow of pictures going at the same time.

The unit is a light and robust and comparable in price to the WDTV. Easy to set up in 5 mins.

All in all a powerful unit for the price that is firmware upgradable for the future and light enough to take away on holidays.

Worked OK but number of compatible codec types limited. Replaced it with a device that cost half the price and also played dvd/cd's and had more codecs. That too was eventually replaced with a Humax dv recorder, usb player and Freeview HD player that I am a lot happier with although, admittedly, at over twice the price of the Iomega device.

Doesn't show every jpg on your hard drive? and the sound is average played through your amplifier? The sound is the main reason for buying this as a solution to play my many many cd's but its not why I have returned this player.
So contacted the iomega team about the jpg's and they wanted to go through evidence? Well my dvd player can play large file jpg's I explained and why can't your player do the same? no answer? We need evidence?? Will show one jpg then won't show the next and so on...ok so if one bit doesn't work then not ggreat is it.
So sent the player back and will invest in another player? Shame nice looking box but flawed!!

A really smart piece of kit. Very sturdy feel to it. It worked straight out of the box and easily handled every vidio format I threw at it, including HD. I have not tried networking it (just plugged a couple of external hard drives into it.) The menu is easy to navigate and it even comes with an HDMI lead. For the money I cannot fault this. Looks and feels far more expensive than the actual cost.

Highly recommended.

I bought this product at a low price. I must say it was really easy to set up. There is an annoying little white LED that blinks when it loads up. However the video player is excellent no problems there at all.looking at photos can cause it to feeze occasionally and it is difficult to return to the start without removing the power socket and restarting the unit. But generally it runs well and was an excellent purchase.

I've had the TV Link Media Player for nearly 2 years now, and it is handy unit. Especially if like me, you have an older TV, as they provide the choice of using HDMI, RCA Video, or a SCART/RCA adapter.

Initial problems I had were with directly plugging a USB Drive in - it would create various file-errors, and occasionally files would totally disappear, which was a tad disconcerting.

That was solved when I bought a Router, and connected it via the Network, and the whole thing comes alive then. In my case, I have a USB Drive connected to my router, but any shared folder, or drive on a PC will be accessible - even if it is connected via USB. That said, I did try doing the same with a Windows 7 Machine, and it requested a password and user-name, even though neither had been set, but I dare say there is a solution to that.

There are a couple of negative issues though. For a start, the handy little feature of resuming a video from the last point you watched it only works when the Video is on a drive plugged directly into the Player.

Also, the last firmware update was in early 2011. Sadly, since then Youtube have change their set-up, and iomega has yet to update accordingly. As a result, it is no longer possible to watch Youtube Videos. And for me, other than perhaps being able to download torrents, the rest of the "Online" features are next to useless.

But if you just want to have a simple way to Watch/Listen to, your PC Media Library, and don't have a Modern TV, with HDMI and of course either a USB Port or Network Connectivity, it is a very handy machine. Despite the little irritations, I still give it a 5.

Looks very smart in its shiny black gloss finish. No decernable noise
Easy to connect up. 1Tb capacity for Video, photos and or files A very handy back up that can be used with your normal TV as connection is simple. Transfer via PC or simply usea usb memory stick and leave the compact unit in place alongside your TV
The only downside is a "lazy" remote - it can take a second for any prodded input to respond In these dqays of instant everything it feel like an age and often makes for a second or third prodf at the remote button to make it work faster All that does is store all the prods that eventually catch up
Overall I would rate it 5 star due to compact size smart finish and quiet operation.

I bought this with the misguided intention of streaming content from my media PC (remotely situated) to my living room TV. After a number of hours spent online trying to figure out why it would not work, I realised that this is not a streaming device; you need a hard drive locally installed to carry the content.

Grrrr.... OK so I purchased a small portable hard drive and installed it, thinking that this shouldn't be a major problem on my GigE wired network. Not to be. Transferring one large video file of a few GB can take up to half an hour. Sending over my music collection, a modest 50GB, took about 12 hours.

Documentation is poor; it took me ages to find the correct information online to allow me to map the device on my home PC. On a related note, every time I switch it off the IP address resets, requiring me to go into the setup menu, get the new IP address and then remap it on my home PC so I can connect to it remotely. Painful.

Also the device is supposed to stream Internet content. I have never gotten it to work and gave up in disgust trying to figure it out. Life is too short.

As a footnote I would say that I am an electronic engineer and I would consider myself to be very competent with technology and computers.
