Both are great devices that basically perform as advertised, I recommend them both. Each gets 4 stars in my book. Interestingly enough, for two devices that are supposed to do more-or-less the same thing, I found them to have very different capabilities and uses. I use both regularly, depending on your setup and planned uses, one will likely be far better for you than the other. A detail review is on my website blog, but here is the bottom line:
Get the Apple TV if:
* All (or at least most) of your music and videos are already in iTunes. The Apple TV will play everything that your iPhone, iPad, and iPod can play, but not much else.
* You can connect it to your home theater receiver or TV via HDMI. The Apple TV only has an HDMI video output. Optical audio output is also provided.
* You want to impress your friends by streaming and controlling your media from you iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (AirPlay and the Apple Remote app)
* You only have a wireless network available to your home theater AND you don't want to buy a USB WiFi adapter too.
* You want everything to "just work," or you feel comfortable with Apple stuff and don't want any new challenges in your life. The Apple TV is easier to use and has a simpler, sleeker interface.
Get the WD TV Live Plus if:
* You need to connect your media streamer to your home theater rig via something other than HDMI (it can output to HDMI, Composite A/V, Component video, and digital optical audio).
* Your media is in a non-apple supported formats (MPEG-2 from DVD rips, .ts or .m2ts BD rips, AVIs, WMV, WMA, VOB, MKV, FLV, FLAC, OGG, etc.)
* You want to play 1080p high def video and new HD audio formats (DTS-HD, Dolby HD)
* You want to play media that is on USB hard disks, thumb drives, Windows media servers, or DLNA servers.
* You don't mind paying extra for WiFi capability
* You don't have (or need to play) protected media (m4v iTunes purchased videos, m4p protected audio, or other DRM protected media)
the problem is that i cannot return it back because i live abroadand it was sent to me by DHL and if i want to resend it , it would cost me 3 times the price of the item .
i Guess this product cannot support updates , and even if it can , it's not the case of mine . so i don't advice anyone to buy this piece of CRAP , you would be spending your money in vain .
GUYS I FOUND THE SOLUTION FOR ALL THIS REBOOTING AND FREEZING ISSUES
ANYONE WHO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE MUST FOLLOW EACH UPDATE RELEASED AFTER THE LAST ONE UPDATED ON THE WD TV , OTHERWISE YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS .
IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM ISSUE , YOU SHOULD DOWNGRADE THE FIRMWARE TO THE 1RST RELEASE WHICH IS VERSION 1.03.29_B THAN YOU FOLLOW EACH VERSION RELEASED UNTIL YOU REACH THE LAST ONE . THESE ARE THE VERSIONS RELEASED UNTIL NOW BEGINNING BY LAST 1.06.16, 1.05.04_B, 1.04.31_B, 1.04.22_B, 1.04.17_B, 1.04.10_B, 1.03.49_B, 1.03.29_B . SO IN ORDER TO MAKE YOUR WD TV LIVE PLUS WORK CORRECTLY YOU SHOULD DOWNGRADE TO THE 1RST FIRMWARE AND FOLLOW THE UPGRADE BY INSTALLING EACH VERSION FOLLOWING THE NEW ONE . IF YOU JUMP A FIRMWARE VERSION , YOUR MACHINE WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY BECAUSE EACH FIRMWARE IS SOLVING A PREVIOUS ISSUE SO YOU SHOULD FOLLOW UP EACH VERSION . NOW MY MEDIA PLAYER IS WORKING WELL AND MOST PROBLEMS ARE RESOLVED , ANYWAY FOR THE MOMENT , BUT I GUESS IT IS GOOD SINCE IN THE BEGINNING IT WAS CAUSING SO MUCH PROBLEMS .
I GUESS I WILL BE JUDGING THE PRODUCT AS A GOOD PRODUCT . BUT AT THE BEGINNING IT CAUSED ME SO MUCH HEADACHE !!!!!
The only things it could improve upon in my opinion would be an updated interface, a remote with a headphone jack like Roku has and support for Amazon Prime video. All in all I really love this thing. I love WD products in general.
