My main interest in this streaming device category is whether I can stream video files from my NAS to my TV without using my computer.

I think one of the key difference between Chromecast and the Plair is that Plair can install any apps from the Google Appstore.
So, I decided to give it a shot and installed the 'MXplayer' and 'File Manager' apps onto the Plair (both of them installed successfully without any issues) that are the two apps I've been using on my Android smartphone to stream videos from my NAS.

Then I was able to connect to my NAS device using the 'File Manager' app and it played the video using the 'MX Player' just like it does on my smartphone (now, the only difference is that I got a 60" screen instead of a 5" screen).

So, I think I can safely say that Plair is like a small tablet without any screen and touch interface (I agree the GUI is proprietary and not like a regular Android tablet and somewhat limited).

I tried the Youtube app and some other apps that comes with it by default (e.g., Angry Birds) and they worked fine but I'll be mostly using it with this 'MX Player' and 'File Manager' combination, which serves my purpose.

So, if you're looking into a streaming player that can stream from your NAS, I recommend you to try this.

I used to use Chromecast until I bought Plair2, and I use the product all time since Chromecast does not support the functions I want.
I was looking for a product that I can play videos or photos from computer, and installing and launching apps to play was hassle to me.
What I like with Plair2 are below
1. it has pre-installed apps and able to download apps from Google Play store which are controlled by one Plair app on my phone, but Chromecast asked me to download each individual apps to play.
2. I am able to play videos and photos from my phone and computers even from cloud storages.
3. It supports remote controller, so I can switch app to app easily.

One thing you need to know is that if you hide your SSID, you need to make it visible for initial setting for the product.
after that, you can hide your SSID back. This is one time thing, and it did not bother me at all.

I highly recommend this product if you consider to buy anything like this kind of product especially Chromecast.

Getting a Plair was a no brainer. It works great at home or on the road. The kids love being able to send videos they record immediately to our big screen TV for everyone to watch, and all of the streaming features work exactly as advertised. It was very easy to set up, and we have had no problems with it from day one. Highly recommended.

I usually don't write reviews but I feel like this device is worth writing for.
I recently disconnected my Comcast cable and was searching for something that I can stream movies and videos with. Plair2 has great selection of apps which has all the episodes of tv series that I've missed on cable tv. Most of the apps are free like hulu and Netflix but you will need to pay for subscription. there bunch of other apps that are completely free without subscription fees like crackle, Viki, YouTube etc... It's easy to use and easy to navigate. Once you are connected you can watch movies and tv shows flawlessly. It's well worth 50 dollars and I would get another one for my tv downstairs.

I have used it for over a week now and installed many applications. So, far everything worked. Netflix and Youtube worked perfectly. Web browsing was slow. Just to give you an idea, antutu score is only about 3700, where as RK3066 is about 10k and RK3188 17k. It was able to play up 720p video with 2 channel sound. Did not handle dolby digital sound well.

I was able to use keyboard and mouse using this usb cable (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ENXI37C/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

Also, wifi signal was good.

A few things I love about it.

1. You can easily stream you media content (photos or videos) from your mobile devices (phones or tablets) and your PC/Mac within Chrome browser with PlAiR 2 plugin.
2. The quality and the performance of the device are superior.
3. It has a built-in Android OS with pre-installed Apps like, Google Play, Netflix, Pandora, Angry Bird, Android Browser, ...etc, Better yet, you can download and install Apps from Google Play or Amazon App store.
4. It also very easy to set up plus a good on-screen tutorial guide.

PLAiR 2 is an embeded-Android media streaming device, you can do more than just streaming your media content!

I wanted a cheap but reliable dongle that can turn my bedroom LCD TV to android, and voila, this was it. This isn't your typical Chromecast or Roku, although it performs the same functions when casting your pictures and videos. Difference is, its slow processing the images or playing the videos (reason why I gave it 4 stars). So if your expecting something completely reliable then sorry this isn't it. Now, for those that are android aficionado like me, then you can't lose for its price. I downloaded XBMC and no complaints here. I can listen to my music and watch movies for free. Downloaded a free movie app and movies night has never been better... It does take about 2-3 min to get started but once it picks up on the buffering, it works non stop. So I totally recommend to those who are android fans, and want to cast pics also like the Chromecast... this works just the same (I also have the Chromecast and a Roku, and I find myself playing more with the Plair 2). So if you have a little patience and again like to tinker with android Phones and tablets.. try it, you won't regret it..
