Seagate FreeAgent Theatre+ HD
Realtek 1073DD based player with a dock for 3.5" Seagate hard drives. Very similar externally to it's non-network predecessor but much improved in performance by virtue of the Realtek chipset. Uses a quite different firmware to most Realtek 1073 based players and benefits from it. This player was one of the first to have Netflix support.

Its a Great product...First I was confused to buy this one..but after having this I really like this one. Only problem I'm facing with the subtitles. If a movie is skipped then it gets lost , then has to be reassigned.

Not a bad unit seems to play anything I throw at it with the exception of a few mkv encodes.
Lousy things about it: Latest firmware locks the unit from loading a custom configured firmware (google playdude seagate firmware)
Unit refuses to configure files in a network share. It just won't do it. If you want your files organized non-randomly, you must use an attached hard drive, usb-to-sata adaptors work well for this. 1080p over wired network works just fine.

The Seagate FAT+ is a pretty solid unit. Everyone will have their likes and dislikes of any player but I have just a few:
The Bad...
1. No Blu-Ray menu support
2. No True-HD or DTS-MA passthrough support
3. File sorting is weird
4. Cannot manipulate MP3 using tag ID info
5. Cannot create custom shortcuts to point to networked media locations
6. An interface only a mother can love

The Good....
1. Very, very wide format support
2. Handles 1080p files in a flawless, hiccup-free manner
3. Firmware is open, user supported forum is quite helpful
4.Well known and widely used chipset - realtek 1073
etc, etc
