Western Digital's latest streaming player takes on Roku and Apple, with easy access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and more, and includes full 1080p HD playback, WiFi, and Ethernet, all at a very affordable price. In addition to supporting many (though not all) streaming video services, the WD TV Play excels at playing back locally stored content. As Ars Technica puts it, with support for "a variety of video container formats," the Play is "the best at making all of your local content available without any fuss." Media-player expert Dave Zatz concurs, saying the Play "significantly outperforming native Roku and Apple TV capabilities in this area." Zatz also liked the Play's user interface, saying that its use of "Android-esque" widgets and apps sets it apart from the competition.
