Great little product!

Awesome piece of kit and roughly the size of an Apple TV makes this a neat little addition to your living room.
Menu’s are really easy to navigate and the optional smartphone remote control option, means you can tuck this away without having it on show.
Only downside is that it does not support DTS decoding, however it does support DTS Pass-through for both HDMI and Optical. Really good buy, just be aware of the DTS restriction if you don’t have a suitable decoder.

Positives:
Compact, good user interface, BBC iPlayer support, AccuWeather now supports the UK (and all countries, the internet radio sources are intelligent and good, the ability to sync voice up to +2/-2 seconds is SO useful, YouTube works well, FaceBook access is good.
The Accuweather tile is intelligent (like Win 8) and alternates between the immediate forecast and the next 5 days.
Built in "n" WiFi is excellent.
I like it!
Negatives:
The one and only USB port is on the side so the USB to my hard drive sticks out sideways and looks really messy, whereas when it is on the back, it is hidden.
The disk stays powered up and spinning when the device is on standby - not green and not good for the drive.
Fix the above two issues and I would rate it higher still.

Disappointed

The documentation stated it supports a wide range of formats including .mts files. This just happens to be the majority of my video files and why I chose this product. However, when I try to play these files, via either the USB or network connection, I get the error message "Unable to play the selected file. Please see the User Manual for a list of supported file formats.". There's nothing wrong with the files, they play perfectly on my PC, immediately loading in Windows Media Player, and also if I play them back through the USB on my HD Digital TV Receiver. This WD TV Play product therefore appears to have been a complete waste of my time and money.
