Very buggy device, does the bare minimum but no more

KenC, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this little box instead of a HTPC because I really only needed it stream some material from a NAS on my home network. Overall it works (barely) but is extremely buggy. It plays about 80% of the content I have, but it there doesn't seem to be any rules about what it will play back and what it won't play back. Most of the time the wireless will work seamlessly, but sometimes it randomly loses the connection and you have to reboot the box in order to get it back.

Great... If this were a BETA

Andrew, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had the o!play air a while now and I can say that it's a love-hate relationship. Sometimes I feel like running out and chucking this at a bad driver, then going off to buy a Boxee Box, WD Live or even building an XBMC-based HTPC myself. I, for whatever reason decided to update to the latest 1.23 firmware and found to my surprise that Internet radio and TV was available for streams around the world.

Truly awful

A. Morrow, Amazon

  • Summary: I want to love this product. I REALLY do. At best, however I can abide it until the other two options I've ordered come and see how much better they are. 1. The responsiveness of the unit is HORRID. Repeated remote button presses (I'm on the latest firmware) are ignored except when you desperately want them to be ignored (i.e., want to go up one item, press up six times... finally it goes up by one then by one MORE landing you on the wrong item.

Disappointment

BobInKyle, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit has a firmware update that provide tv/radio internet viewing/access. Before the firmware update, the wireless configuration and connection worked well with my N router. After the update, the wireless connection has some major issues in connecting to N routers. It seems the problem is that the unit has problems authenticating correctly to the router. I have 15 Mbs internet connection. The streaming video is very poor over this connection - not really useful.

not worth it

Mr. X, Amazon

  • Summary: It can eventually work with Vista and Windows 7. But you have to know how to edit the registry or learn a bit of linux. This is just way too much effort to play media files. It is as if Asus offers no support for this product. I had to learn all this information from searching various forums. If you find a sense of accomplishment in doing things the hard way by all means this is the product for you. If you want something that just works avoid this product.

  • Excerpt: Дается гарантия на данный аппарат 6 месяцев в аккурат истечения данного срока он у меня и сломался, перестал отображать каналы iptv, при каждой загрузке все параметры обнулялись. Не стоит потраченных средств.
  • Pros: Стильный, многофункциональный, возможность iptv.
  • Cons: интерфейс программной оболочки, при использовании iptv при переключении запаздывает звук, приходиться нажимать на паузу, запаздывает пуль, просто не возможно порой выключить, старая модель, программное обеспечение для управления устройством давно не обновлялось.

  • Excerpt: Подробнее про "танцы" с ПДУ.
  • Pros: Наличие Wi-fi. Можно слушать радио на кухне (для этого и брал). Все, что пишут про всеядность, это должно быть нормой, а не достоинством.
  • Cons: Невозможность нормального управления с пульта (в режиме перемотки фильма особенно). Не реагирует на нажатия. Или с таким запаздыванием, что теряется смысл этих самых нажатий. Проще все остановить, выйти в главное меню и начать снова-здорово. В половине случаев теряется связь с сервером. Нажимаю "открыть папку"... и не видит сервак. Надо пару раз выйти в старшее меню, и потом снова войти, тогда только появляются папки (соединение по Ethernet). Кстати, пункт "недавно пр...

  • Summary: Einbinden ins Netzwerk funktioniert einwandfrei und er hat auch alles erkannt das ich auf meinen Server hatte. Leider ist das Menü einfach viel zu träge und unübersichtlich - habe ihn zurück geschickt.
