I have been using this for a little over a year, and it is great for large storage, and yet lacks a little with regard to using as a media player. It functions, and when it does it is great. I am still struggling to find a way to get consistent performance with uploading files and them becoming available for streaming. (This is so very strange) It is very particular about file format and while it will stream mp4, it will not stream all mp4 formats. Every time I think I find the format settings, I stumble onto something else that seems to impact. Additionally, when connecting through my Samsung BlueRay player, it will not see files that I know to be on the device when I navigate to the folder on the device. This may be something that tech could address quickly and yet I have not reached out to them.
