There are pictures of amazon video on the site with the unit but I've read conflicting reports. Also does it have media link access? Not just DLNA, but the actual LG media link app.

No, Amazon is not supported according to a recent communication with LG Support, they said they had not reached an agreement with Amazon thus that feature was not available.

Answer: 
As of 11/26/2012, the Amazon Instant Video app has been removed. However, LG Customer Service says it will be available by the end of November 2012.

You can browse via CIFS or DLNA. CIFS will require logging into your server with a user id and password, DLNA does not. However, as of 11/26/2012, it appears the CIFS access may be broken. I tried connecting to a Synology DS-212j NAS and could only view top level folders. Any type of folder drill down resulted in a network error.

I am not sure how to answer your question on a "media link app". LG Customer Service says either Nero or Plex needs to be installed on the serving device in order to access media outside of DLNA. This also will explain why you may experience issues when trying to view folders and files by CIFS. If your referring to a "media link app" that will access media content on the internet (i.e. CNET video, USTREAM, etc.), it does not access these sites at this time.

Answer: 
A software "upgrade" removed this most useful app. The upgrade was automatic. I have not been able to revert. I only bought this because of Amazon video.

Answer: 
NO, unless you want to use the complete useless dlna option. Simple CIFS and SMB connection is simply to hard implement for the no-good programmers. Too bad since the product is 95% complete - they just forgot CIFS and SMB, leaving NAS users in the dark.
