Asus O! Play HDP-R1 HD Media Player Review

8 October 2009
  • Summary: Taking on similar dimensions as compact 3.5" portable hard drive enclosures, the Asus O!Play HDP-R1 HD Media Player is truly the best of its kind. It may not have any internal storage of its own, but most people are more than happy to provide their own flash drives for that purpose.
  • Pros: Utterly stellar video format support, Inclusion of LAN and eSATA ports, Full 1080p HD output via HDMI, Dedicated music player for quick song shuffle, Built-in volume control
  • Cons: No included storage, Cannot stream content from Internet, HDMI is only HD output option, No integrated Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity

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.

  • 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.

Сетевой медиаплеер ASUS O!Play HDP-R1

16 February 2010
  • Summary: В целом плеер оставил очень приятное впечатление — хорошая упаковка, интересный дизайн устройства, удобный пульт, красивый интерфейс, высокая совместимость с форматами медиафайлов. Однако явно есть некоторые недоработки с программной начинкой — не всегда видны русские теги, нет полноценной поддержки...

Asus O!Play HDP-R1: toller Netzwerk-Mediaplayer

17 December 2009
  • Summary: Mit seinem O!Play HDP-R1 verkauft Asus eine HD-fähige Netzwerk-Steaming-Box für schlappe 90 Euro. Laut Hersteller stecken Käufer den kleinen Kasten einfach an ihr Netzwerk an, und schon sehen sie sich ihre im LAN gespeicherten Filme in HD-Qualität auf dem Fernseher an.
  • Pros: unterstützt viele Dateiformate, einfache und elegante Oberfläche, ordentliche Fernbedienung, E-SATA-Anschluss
  • Cons: Windows-Media-Streaming funktioniert nur bedingt, keine Hintergrundbeleuchtung der Fernbedienung, keine ID3-Tag-Anzeige bei Musikdateien
