Summary: Bought this to display promotional video on TV. I read through the manual trying to confirm whether or not it would play a video on a loop, but the manual didn't specify so I gave it a shot. As it turns out, yes it will loop a video(s). At the end of the video it displays a stop icon briefly, and restarts the video with a play icon shown briefly as well (approx. 1 second each).
Pros: Inexpensive, simple interface, works as intended.
Summary: Except for the GUI, it function perfectly well with my screen and audio receiver. I also found the remote irresponsive sometimes. But ones the movie plays, its all entertainment right at your screen and speakers.
Plays anything you throw at it.. But not for anime fans..

Summary: This simple player does play anything you throw at it. But, as I have feared, the times have left it behind. Which, nevertheless, is still on par with the other options. Most people use this to watch movies, and this would play 95% of your movies. However, if you have recent anime, which is often encoded in 10 bit or other recent encodings, be careful because your video will be pixelated, and the colors may be messed up, and this consist of 80% of what I currently watch.
Summary: First I would like to say that I have only connected this directly to a tv with stereo audio so I can't speak to the surround sound audio. I have played m4v, DVD ISO, and BD ISO files. m4v files were ripped for use with an Apple TV. They play fine. DVD ISO play with full menus and play with no problems. BD ISO files were another story. First I tried full disk rips and these do not play. Then I tried movie only ISO and these played fine.
Summary: I purchased this product to use it to play my HD Movies on it instead of burning them to BluRay discs. My camera is Sony Alpha 77, and the file format it produces is AVCHD. I noticed that when I play the output of my camera on this player I don't get the HD quality that I get on my BluRay SONY player, also My BD player can play HD movies directly from A USB device and even this is much much better quality than the ASUS player.
Summary: Bought this for my dad. Didnt read the ENTIRE list of what it will play and wont. Entirely MY fault. Tried to play a BR rip NOT RM and it was laggy. Every other movie and file has played flawlessly. Thinking of buying the MP700 for myself, but if this drops to $50 again I wouldnt hesitate to purchase this for myself.
Pros: Too many Pros to list. From ease, to playability, size and looks, the O!play is a great machine.
