    So after i purchased the magnavox streaming player from walmart, I was disappointed as it does not allow for hulu plus. Returned that and luckily my store had a few of these RCA players in stock. So I picked one up. Brought it home, set it all up, couldn't get the remote to work. The remote is very very flimsy, somewhat cheap if you will. The back doesn't really look secure, so I had assumed that the battery itself just was not being held in properly, returned it for a new one. Opened it all up, and same problem. After thinking for a split second, I ran to the store to buy a new battery, closest store was target, where I paid $6 for two. Came home, popped it in and sure enough, worked just perfectly. Problem is that RCA packages the remote with the batteries already inserted in the remote. This has a tendency to drain the battery. So, if you are buying, pick up a battery the day you purchase, as you will need it. battery is 2032. Other than that pain, the device works great for $50! Netflix, Hulu plus, etc.

    I was going to buy a blu-ray player that does what this does too the day after Thanksgiving for about twice the price. But I have a perfectly good dvd up-convert system that puts out a great picture on my LCD TV. So I opted for this because of it's portability. I can take this from room to room with absolutely no hassle, unlike a dvd player that I don't really need anyway. Went ahead and paid the $48 for it now, even though it is a black Friday item for $39. I figured it wasn't worth $9 to go and stand in line for for hours? Picked it up at my local Wal-Mart and was on my way. When I first hooked it up it said there was no internet connection. Re-booted my router and still the same. So I unplugged the media player and plugged back in, and it worked perfect. That was the only glitch. Everyone should have one of these! Only other cost is an HDMI cable (get the shortest one you can, cheaper) if you want one, and the monthly service fee for Netflix, which is a measley $8 and VuDu has fees but never used it so I don't know how much that is. I highly recommend this product!

    This is definitely the lowest price out there for a media streaming box that includes all the most important apps. It has Netflix, Vudu, Pandora, YouTube, and HuluPLUS. It also includes Picasa for photo albums, but I'm not interested in that. It also has VuduApps which give you access to Facebook and Twitter and lots of web video like DailyMotion. Setup was a breeze. I just plugged it in and connected to my TV with HDMI (cable not included in box). It has a quick setup wizard that searched for WiFi networks in range. I typed in the password for my network and it then prompted me to perform a software update which took about 3 minutes. Then I spent the next few hours exploring all the cool content. Since I already had Netflix and HuluPLUS accounts, I was able to connect by entering my passwords. Very easy... I've used other more expensive streaming boxes that didn't have some of the major content that this one has. The RCA box doesn't have web browsing or connect to your home computers to access any of your digital music or video files, but if you're looking for a box strictly for streaming online content, this model is a real value.

    My husband bought this steaming player back home last weekend and my boys have been using it all the time now. With support for Netflix and Hulu, it is great for the price!

    I bought this for Black Friday, and it was definitely worth the $38 I paid for it. I was worried that it would have a poor graphic user interface, and that the menu screens would just look cheap. It doesn't! It's very well designed, from software to actual physical design. I plugged the HDMI right into our TV, and I actually used the component outs to go to our audio system. They both work at the same time, which is a nice feature. All of the services are fast- Netflix never buffers mid-movie (it does take a moment to load the movie, however), and Pandora is extremely quick. I don't subscribe to Hulu Plus, or use Vudu, so I can't honestly say about those. There are only two (and a half) things wrong: 1. The search features/on screen keyboard. You have to go to each letter individually and select it, there is no way to do it easily. It would be nice if there was a phone-like keyboard option. Just saying. :) 2. The remote is horrible. After using the included remote for a bit, I quickly did some Google-ing, and programmed my universal remote to operate with this unit. It works MUCH better now. (It even makes the keyboard easier to maneuver). 2 (1/2). The omi-directional remote sensor isn't that great. There is no such thing as sitting on one side of the room and using it- you have to be almost directly in front of it, or at most a 45 degree angle. Those are just little picky things I've noticed. But overall, this is 100% worth the money you pay for it! (Note, when it comes to programming this unit with a universal remote, no codes are available. You'll need to do the button-by-button technique.)

    • A. No, at this time this only streams personal media from online sources, i.e. YouTube and Picasa.

    • A. This device does not. I have purchased this device along with an Apple TV, and for 50 more bucks, just buy the apple TV, which does allow streaming from hard drives.

    • A. The box says that it is a Wi-Fi Streaming Media Player so I believe that it is only for streaming. The device connects to your wi-fi and then you connect it to your TV (there's only outputs from the device). You will also need accounts from Netflix, Hulu-Plus, Pandora, etc. to actually enjoy the content. Hope this helps.

    • A. Streaming only. No hard drive or storage space. There is no usb plug either--only power, hdmi, and composite. (no network either so wireless only). The whole thing's not much bigger than a deck of cards.

    • A. The only cables required are the power and HDMI cables. You will ideally want to place this in a central location where it can receive a wireless signal, but you shouldn't have any problems.

    • A. No this connects wirelessly to your router and then you can use a HDMI cable or composite cable (Yellow/Red/White connectors) to connect to your tv for example my router is in my living room and my Rca box is in my basement

    • A. if you have a wifi connection nearby it will pick it up. took this box to neighbors house and it picked up my router from about 600 ft away. I'm sure that will vary depending on the router you are trying to link with.
