ASUS O!Play HDP-R1 HD Media Player Review

Asus O!Play HDP-R1 Digital Media Player

23 December 2009
  • Conclusion: As to using the O!Play to play media from direct-connected USB storage sources, we’re not sure if it is really worth the time it takes to physically copy files to a removable hard drive or flash drive just to be able to view them on a TV. Accessing these files over a network connection from a system, NAS device, or other UPnP device, however, is a much more useful feature--albeit, the O!Play suffers from a few network-related problems.
  • Pros: HDMI output, 1080p support, Lots of supported video formats, View photos and HD video files on your TV
  • Cons: Aspect ratio issues with video and photos, No search capabilities, Flaky network connectivity, Can't connect to Windows 7 systems (yet)

An HD media streamer that can play content off an attached hard drive or through a wired Ethernet network

Good Gear Guide.au
17 February 2010
  • Summary: We found the ASUS O!Play HDP-R1 to be easy to use and it performed all its intended tasks well, except for Internet video streaming. It also took some fiddling to get it to work with Windows 7. But the bottom line is that it's a good little HD streamer that can play almost any file type, and it will even let you copy content between attached drives and your network.
  • Pros: Very good Ethernet streaming performance, easy to use, USB 2.0 and eSATA, HD streaming, Internet radio streaming, file copying between attached drives and wired Ethernet network
  • Cons: Didn't show up as a UPnP device in Windows 7, Internet video streaming was poor

Обзор сетевого Full HD плеера ASUS O!Play HDP-R1

29 March 2012
  • Summary: Если внимательно рассмотреть ASUS O!Play HDP-R1 ещё раз, то вырисовывается ясная картина - производитель выкинул из устройства всё лишнее, что вряд ли понадобится рядовому пользователю, компенсировав самым необходимым. Судите сами - зачем все эти архаичные видеовыходы, когда пользователю по сути нужен лишь HDMI, ну и оптический аудио-выход для подключения к ресиверу (хотя для этих целей можно также использовать HDMI).

Asus O!Play HDP-R1 – wireless sì, ma non per Internet

6 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Media player, duro e puro . O!Play è un'interfaccia perfetta tra il TV e il tuo archivio multimediale portatile, hard disk o pendrive che sia. E ti fa accedere alle cartelle sul PC attraverso la rete, anche senza cavi. Peccato solo che non si possa bazzicare il web: qui di Youtube o Flickr nemmeno l'ombra.

  • Summary: Плеер Asus O!Play HDP-R1 оставил у нас положительное впечатление. Перед нами довольно хорошо проработанная модель на чипсете Realtek 1073 - производитель выжал из его возможностей максимум. Внешний вид приятный, чёрный "кирпичик" плеера легко впишется в окружение гостиной комнаты. Жёсткий диск внутрь установить нельзя, зато можно подключить внешний накопитель через eSATA без потери скорости. Конечно, вы можете подключить и накопители через USB.
