I've purchased a few things from this site in the past with no issues.

Searching WD TV it looks like this is the lowest refurb price by $10 - $15
Seems like a good price for an entry level unit such as this.

This is the MINI !!! Not HD !!

jiannichan 05-01-2012 09:22 AM

This isn't even a good price. From reading the description, it doesn't sound like it even plays MKV files or is even HD. Looks like the standard WDTV non-hd version. "lug and play to instantly enjoy a wide variety of media on your TV in DVD quality, including RealVideo format videos" Really???

I'm almost certain this is the original WDTV. Yes, it will use A LOT of formats, yes, it does have HDMI. I would like to have the latest and greatest model (just for networking) but have not been able to justify paying even a few dollars more for one because this one is just fine. And I get them all wholesale as a WD reseller. Anyone using torrents would be crazy not to have one of these.

I still do not understand what the freakin' point of this product is. If you have a computer, you already can play videos on your TV. So, if you want to copy them from your computer to a thumb drive first, you can use this to do it instead? Great idea?

This is the WD Mini version. No ethernet or HDMI connection, just component video output.

It's fine for older set-ups that lack HDMI (older TVs. projectors, etc.)

The price is about right for the WD Mini--I believe it was this low in the past.

I bought one of these for my girlfriend a couple of years ago for about the same price. It does not play MKV, but does play RMVB videos. Has component output. Does suck with no networking capabilities. There is NO custom firmware that I have been able to find for this.
