    I have 2 WD Live Plus boxes, and they work great for me.

    I have Charter Cable 10 Meg download, and we are able to stream HD on both boxes at the same time using Netflix. One is connected to a 60" Mitsubishi DLP, and the other a 37" LG LCD. The picture quality on both for Netflix is fantastic.

    I can also stream anything I can throw at them from my Synology NAS box, except for BD ISO files. They will stream original m2ts files copied from BD discs however, as well as uncompressed audio and video made from them. (The boxes will do ISOs from DVDs with full menus.)

    The only other negative for now is they do not do DD 5.1 with Netflix, although I expect they will do an upgrade to allow that eventually.
