I am very pleased with this little toy after only two days. It does everything I expected it to and does it well. The 1080p upscaling is more than acceptable. The GUI is a little kludgy but it's okay once you figure it out. Keep file names as short as possible to make it easier on yourself. I've successfully used a USB flash drive as well as a 16gb SD card (like you'd use in a digital camera) with no problems at all, although the SD card slot doesn't have a spring load in it... it just kinda slides in and sits there.

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!

This is a great product for the purpose I wanted. I have a SUV with a built-in DVD system, however most of the movies that I have are in digital format including MKV, MPG and AVI. I had initially though of getting a dvd player and then converting the videos to MPG2 and creating DVDs with it, but that would have been cumbersome and also suffered from loss of quality. Also since I have composite video pins in the SUV just having HDMI output was not an option. At all these level this product fits properly. I have attached a 1 GB external HD powered buy this units USB. I can play all of these videos directly to the car video and the kids have about 60 movies to choose from. I also was able to take this out on vacation and then attached this to the hotels TV thru DVD and watched HD quality movies in the room. Also I found out that it will play all the HD MKV both 1080 and 720 p also thru the composite video. All in all a great product.

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.

I just got this few days ago, and It so far is the greatest thing I've ever purchased for $45. It comes with it's own AV cords and AC adapter, as well as a remote. The whole thing is rather self explanitory, but works wonders. I bought it to have on me when I travel and want to show friends a video without doing it on a small screen. This way I can show anyone anything I need to anywhere I go. The ability to select aspect ratio's on the device is great as well, that way if it's a "widescreen" video and you want it to be a 4:3 full screen, you can do that with a push of a button. I will be buying it, its own HDMI cable to have with it that way no matter AV or HDMI I can still throw it up on any tv. Highly recommended.

We've ditched cable since 90% of what we watch is CNN. Been using an old (2004) laptop to watch internet content and downloads on our HDTV. Often when I try to run downloaded videos through the laptop (using the TV as a cloned monitor) I get the message on the TV, "Change computer screen resolution). And when I change the screen resolution, the video no longer shows on the computer screen. So, I got this and connected it with an HDMI cable (not included, a composite cable is included). I went through the "add devices" on my TV and was quickly brought to the Satechi menu - Movies, music, photos. I plugged in my 1 Terabyte portable hard drive (no external power needed) and the Satechi readily recognized it. I browsed through variety of files - blu ray rips, long 4 GB movies, short clips, you name it. The picture quality was outstanding, sound was great and could be increased with the Satechi remote, fast forward worked fine. I'm really impressed. I got it for the sales price of $39.99 and it plays any content that my computer could, for a LOT less money. I can't say enough good. And it is tiny, smaller than a pack of playing cards. Have not tried the SD card slot, but why would I need that when I can plug a 1 Terabyte hard drive into it.
