Are these any good?

They use a different chipset from the Live series, I took a look at the most recent manual and I'm almost sure that when it first launched it was largely limited to SD video but the manual now says most HD video types are supported up to 1080p @ 30FPS. It's weird though it still mentions that m4v can be SD video only but MP4 which is the same thing can be HD. Take a look at the manual and make sure all your media types are supported before deciding, the info is towards the end.

The WDTV Live Hub is the Live series with the HDD built in.

As next010 said, it has some limitations and you'd probably be better off buy a WDTV Live HD or Hub so you can play back all file formats.
