Jack of all trades, master of none

I've been using my device for about 2 weeks now and I can safely say that it's for tech-savvies. After my first update, the box was freezing up at start up. I had to unplug the cord, hit the reset button and re-install the OS. It now works fine. For some reason, I can't get 5.1 audio with Netflix; I've contacted support and I'm waiting for their reply. I come from a fairly old/basic setup. I had a decoder that couldn't record and a Raspberry PI 3 with Kodi installed for my local media. This box allows me to replace both with a single device. For me this was a well welcome update. I'm happy about it and I would definitively buy it again, even if it has its flaws.

Great price for the device!

It's a very good product at a fair price, beautiful 4k image. It has a modular tuner capability which allows me to record my favourite shows. It also streams Netflix in UHD 4K. The cons is the lack of an air mouse on the RCU, which is difficult to use at the beginning, but after 5 minutes using it, it becomes very easy to navigate.

Great piece of hardware!

This product is amazing!!! I have connected it to my TV and now I'm able to play all my movies (HD or 4k) and install all my favourite apps. My TV now it's better than a smart TV because I have the same that a smart TV plus the possibility to install apps designed for smartphone/tablet (because for Android TV we don't have so many apps). It's true that the RCU isn't the best ones but I just connected my wireless keyboard with touchpad and it works perfectly!

WeTek Play 2

The OTA tuner is not very good. I connected Rabbit Ears to a TV and got 6 channels -- 4 of these having excellent quality. With the exact same antenna setup into the WeTek it locked on to just 2 of the most powerful and nearby TV stations. The WeTek can't pick up the other stations even when I narrow the frequency range to that of a weaker station. The OTA tuner as compared to that used in the TV is very poor quality. The Remote Control along with its related Application Launcher Software is the worst of any media player I have ever used. First, it is an IR device that must be pointed directly at the WeTek. In one mode the arrow keys select left, right, above or below icons. The OK button is used to select. In the other "Similar to Air Mouse" mode the arrow keys maneuver a "dart" on the screen. Totally unworkable considering you must keep the IR controller pointed directly at the WeTek. The Launcher makes you use both modes. The software and controller combination is User Hostile Not at all User Friendly. On every Media Box I tried, including the WeTek, KODI worked well. The WeTek earned one star but just barely. If they were to junk the OTA tuner, IR controller, and then build a Simple Easy-To-Use front end this would be a huge improvement in my opinion.

I bought and liked tbis unit yesterday but noticed that it needed an OS update so i followed the instructions. It took over 2.5 hours to update and then once it rebooted, it froze. I exchanged it for a new one today and turned it on and it immediately turned off .. I gave up and returned it.

Ok, I guess

Android boxes and IPTV are not for the electronically challenged. It is not plug-and-play. A lot of learning is required in order to operate this kind of box. I believe most android media boxes run similarly. They run the Kodi platform. I don't have experience with many such boxes, so I cannot compare. This one seems to be reliable. The remote function buttons could be better placed. Wetek has a website and forum, but it not for a beginner. Wetek does not have a detailed user manual to help you learn the system, even when asked for one. Customer service wanted me to tell them how my particular box is set up and running before they can help me. It is they who are supposed to tell me that info. You will have to learn on the net and through the many YouTube video's aimed at educating users of such a box. There are 1000's of potential channels, but many do not work or come and go. It is an interesting concept and worth buying, but only if you want to study how to use it.

Buggy firmware, not user friendly.

On the the first unit the optical output didn't work, and Netflix would lock up until a complete box reset, lost the TV EPG with the latest update and the same issue with Netflix and EPG on the second box. Just stereo on Netflix. Returned. This box needs a lot of work from the support team.

WeTek Play 2

It's time to make a new review. Since writing my last review, things have started to work again on my WeTek Play 2 that I bought online from Best Buy. The close app by recent applications setting started to work again, but only sometimes, but I'm still able to close all my open apps when it does work so I'm happy with that. WeUpdate still doesn't work at all, but I was able to download the newest update from a desktop computer so I am happy with that. And other than those issues the performance is top notch. I would of gave this product a full 5 stars if it wasn't for those issues but overall I am happy with this device and I'm glad that I bought it.

Wetek Play 2

I bought this Android media box from online at Best Buy because it was sold out at the the closest store near me. This was awesome at first. Than I found out there was an update for it so I tried to update it, and it wouldn't update to the latest version of the OS, it just keeps saying "Sorry we are having problems at the moment, please try again later". So I did a factory data reset to see of that helps, didn't help at all. Four more factory data resets later, it's still doing the same thing. I tried downloading the update from the wetek forms but the server can't be found when I try to download it. Now it won't even let me close any open applications. I can't even return this product because I bought it online a few months ago and it only only just started acting up like this, I'm not too pleased.

Wetek Media Box

I have had many media boxes in the past, but nothing even comes close to this beast. It's just a rocket when it comes down to streaming from a wireless environment. This box speaks quality all the way to the remote. I couldn't be happier and give this a 5 Star rating out of 5. BTW, the customer service department at Wetek is awesome. you won't regret your purchase!!! Enjoy!!
