Got my player today. Comes with HDMI, analog and sata cables but no USB3.0 cable. I don't yet have a drive to put inside of it but I have a 2TB Samsung Story external HDD which I attached to one of the USB ports. Now bear in mind the unit came with the 22 firmware and I have yet to upgrade but the playback of anything with a higher bitrate than a 720p mkv is horrendously bad, extremely bad stuttering with bluray ISO and bluray folder content. I'm not sure if it's the external drive, it works perfectly fine on my other media player, a TViX M-6500A, so I'm downloading the latest firmware 220.127.116.11. Fingers crossed but not a great start.............
there's definitely an issue with the Samsung Story drive, I upgraded to 26 FW and the issue still persists. This needs to be fixed. I find it amazing that a 3 year old player like my TViX can play stuff off this drive perfectly yet this player can't even handle 1080p MKV files played from it let alone BD ISO. It's pretty poor in fact.
I tried an IDE drive which I fitted inside a generic external HDD case and that works fine, no problem.
Anyway, aside from that issue, and it is a major one, BD ISO's seem to play perfectly albeit with no menus of course. I've only played a few and have yet to try 3DBD as I don't have my new ae7000 projector yet.
The network feature is easy to setup though what you are able to play is dependent on your network setup, a wireless N setup should play fairly high bitrate files while a wireless B/G will play a fair bit of 720p and of course all divx/avi files.
Youtube app worked well, no issues there. I couldn't seem to get the cursor working on the browser, maybe it requires a USB mouse?
