Re: Network Media Player, which one?

I too wish to have a decent media player, but have been very disappointed with what I bought upto date, I started with an Asus i mini, that worked but but did not have the connections I wanted, I then bought a WD TV, this time it had to be returned as it kept having dropouts etc, I got another only to find the same problem, it turns out that the software produced, made it worse, so I retro stepped the software 2 versions, it works better, but confidence all gone, also the remote rubber on the base is crumbling away and sticky.
I got the latest Asus io only that was faulty again it would drop the lan signal, I returned this, but instead of a replacement I got my money back, apparently Asus have stopped selling it here.
I ended up with a Medi8tor, this has also have to been returned after 2 months it is unable to locate the Lan signal. I have gone back to the old WD, and suffer the problems with that until I get the Medi8tor back!!
Its a mine field, mainly full of , I suggest WD has the worst support ever, and that includes for its NAS box WDEX4. I also believe many returns done in the USA are then sent to Philippines where they are then sold as new, the warranties here are very bad, and lack the support that the USA and Europe enjoy. Most warranty last 7 days, and that it, if you try to get units repaired it takes 3 months, and then your original is returned, with bits missing and still broken.

Even though I get a network drop every now and then (unplugging the USB cord and then plugging it in again repairs it) my A400 and A110 (Popcorn Hours) continue to work great.

I see one used for $100. Is it worth the money in terms of reliabiltiy?

For the A400 that's not a bad deal - as long as it works!

Not the same. Your post was right after my post talking about what I've used.
