Help picking a player for my needs


Novice Member
Hey guys I have been playing with many different network players and the best one so far for me is WD, here is a list of what I want in a player.

Easy interface like WD, mine has a folder on main screen that list all movies on NAS drive.
HD of course 4k would be better.
Ethernet, I don't use WiFi
Web browser, YouTube and maybe a few others

I tried Android boxes and they are not the best thing for my daughter. Plus they lock up to much. I had a mini PC and it was great but Im looking for something smaller and quicker to get things loaded like the WD. If the WD could surf the web I wouldn't be asking this :) And yes I know about the hidden browser, mine locks up.

Your right, but the 3 android boxes I tried so far worked but not 100% I got the shield last night and so far it's great. Price is 100.00 higher then what I wanted to spend but if it works then fine. Kodi is working fine on this box and talks to the nas drive just fine and I got chrome loaded on it. Even my hdhomerun app works on this box and none of the other android boxes could do that. So after SD gets the DVR project done this box should replace my cable box.

Maybe I just needed to pay a bit more then 60.00 for a nice android box.
