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

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

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

CNET
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. Wir haben getestet, ob das wirklich so einfach und mit allen angegebenen Videoformaten funktioniert.
  • 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

Asus O!Play HDP-R1

DinSide.no
15 September 2009
  • Excerpt: DinSide Det begynner etter hvert å bli et svært godt utvalg av frittstående HD-mediespillere. Har du fulgt med på DinSide, har du sikkert fått med deg testen vår av WDTV , for eksempel, som fikk terningkast 5. Asus O!Play er et produkt i samme gate, men den støtter også avspilling - og kopiering - av mediefiler som du har liggende på nettverkdisker og PC-er i nettverket ditt.
  • Pros: Tar "alt" av formater, reagerer raskt, nettverk, eSATA
  • Cons: Så stor at den hadde rommet en intern harddisk, ikke WLAN, svak på musikkfunksjoner.
