I was very excited to hear that WD was releasing a new set top streamer with the announcement of the WD Play last week. WD was among the first to release small set top streaming boxes back in 2008, and since then, have released several very strong, if tragically overlooked, streaming devices that cover a wide variety of home theater implementations. Being a proud and very satisfied owner of multiple WDTV Live Streaming devices, I ordered this as soon it became available to see what new things- if any- WD was bringing to the table in terms of streaming.

The WD Play is positioned as an entry level streaming product, costing less than the WDTV Live Streaming (whose listed price for all of 2012 averaged $90 new, but is now hiked to near MSRP of $120, right after the WD Play's release), and significantly less than the WDTV Live Hub. The WD Play is NOT positioned to replace either of those fantastic devices, nor would I recommend anyone doing so.

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this device to many home theater users. I can ONLY recommmend it for people who solely want it to access apps such as Pandora, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and others like it. While WDTV Play retains a lot of media format compatibility as other WDTV devices, WD has inexplicably cut out support for mpeg and DTS audio. The former is forgivable, as it's an outdated and relatively underused format, but the latter absolutely is not. The interface for accessing networked media, or simply changing audio or subtitle tracks is crippled and very counter-intuitive. Perhaps most telling about this device is the physical remote. Gone are many of useful interface buttons found in other WDTV device remotes, and in their stead, are big prominent buttons for Netflix, Hulu, and Vudu.

The first rule about buying a media player is to understand what you are getting. The WD TV Play is primarily a streaming device (Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Hulu and things like that). It can also handle DLNA connections so if you have a media server in your house you can connect and play from that.

In other words this is a budget box (look at the price) designed to compete with the Roku boxes. It is not intended as a replacement for WD's on WD TV Live product line. I notice a lot of people have made that mistake.

Western Digital have been producing these sorts of media players for several years now without much fanfare or attention. That all goes to Apple TV and Roku it seems. But honestly these are as fully featured as either of those and frequently cheaper.

For me this hits a sweet spot in that it has both wireless and wired connectivity (I always want wired and the cheaper boxes usually have one or the other but not both) and while it can't handle network shares, unlike it's big brother, it can handle DLNA. Which means it's very simple to set up a media server via Plex, XMBC etc. and stream your local movies and music that way.

The WD TV Play offers a different and significantly impoved UI over the WD TV Live boxes. One that is reminiscent of current tablet UI design. It's effective and easy to use. Setup is minimal and there's plenty of customization to hide the apps you don't ever use. It also helps that it works with the WD Remote Android app which makes it very easy to control .

There do seem to be a few bugs still mind you. Occasionally it disappears from the network and has to be reconnected and sometimes an app doesn't seem to work quite as intended. These are things that could be fixed easily with an app or firmware update.

Caveats: I'm a very experienced network engineer / architect and software developer. I can get things to work, and I can troubleshoot networks and devices. My primary intended use is to use the Slingplayer application at a vacation home (I have a new Roku 3 which is great so far, but astonishingly Roku doesn't support slingplayer), and get rid of the Dish.

This product has fatal flaws.

Out of the box experience was merely okay. Sluggish set up. Gave me composite video and audio, but not the HDMI cable I really needed.

The user interface is bizarre. I'm just not sure anyone put any thought into UX. The flow is baroque, unique, unintuitive, and chaotic. I wanted to accomplish 2 things; (1) get rid of that huge Accuweather icon dominating the favorites page (come on, did anyone want this?), and (2) check the firmware and make sure it is up to date. It took me 45 minutes to figure out the very odd UI navigation to do these 2 things. Usually I can pick my way through anyone's widgets and flow, but I struggled. I finally cheated and got some hints from online forums. Firmware from the factory turned out to be the latest version available, and it appears (though I have not seen it) that the WD Play will auto update firmware over the network.

The Netflix app crashes about 30% of the time I invoke it (by crash I mean the WD Play freezes up completely). The other 70% of the time it makes it to a welcome screen and presents 2 buttons: begin a "free" trial, or sign in as an existing user. I have Netflix, and pushing the button to sign into my existing account doesn't appear to do anything. I can wait and wait, or push the button repeatedly, and nothing will happen. No alerts are generated, nothing.
