The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is that the tiny remote button labels are printed in a fairly dark blue on black and is VERY hard to read unless you are in full light. I'm also less than enthused that it doesn't handle a few very common video containers like MKV, MP4 and MOV. I knew that up front though so it wasn't a surprise. I also see in the setup that you can see what version of the software is installed but the sparse manual and website make absolutely no reference to updating it or if it's even possible. One other minor nag: Subtitles are defaulted to "ON". No biggie... just a push of a button on the remote but still an annoyance. I've also recently noticed that file management does not work correctly. For example, if you delete a file it does indeed disappear from the on-screen list but it does not rebuild the file directory. I deleted several 2gb+ files and when I took the flash drive back to my computer they were gone, but the space they occupied was not available and I had to reformat the drive to reclaim that space.
All in all, as long as you are aware of the shortcomings and they really won't affect your needs, then buy it! It's great so far! I will update my review after 6 months or so.
UPDATE Dec. 27: Didn't take 6 months after all!Read more ›
Some quirks and nuances: The product natively has been set for PAL. Most HDTVs will see it and you have to change it to be NTSC while connected to the TV, however you have to do this every time you connect it to the HDTV thru HDMI. If you do not connect it thru HDMI, last selection of NTSC will stay. So if I take it out of the car, I change it after using it on the HDMI connected TV.
Remote certainly is very small and not very intuitive, I had a spare learning remote which learned the most basic buttons and I use this. I could not find the digit code for this unit. Since the unit is not functional without a remote guard the remote.
Overall an excellent entertainment product that is priced very right.
