I placed an order on Wednesday and received it on Saturday.
I wanted a Media PLayer and an 1TB portable Hard Disk in addition to my 320GB portable.
I was impressed with the WD TV Live for the features brought with it.
The WD TV Live hub, fitted to my requirement well as it is WD TV Live with an in-build 1TB,but without the wi-fi.
The surprise is the WD Remote app for android, it performs much better than the IR remote supplied.
The only objection is that the connection cables are not supplied in the package.
Overall, it serves it purpose as expected.
