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
