This Media Player is USELESS to me!

Watcher, Amazon
13 December 2014
  • Summary: I really really wanted to like this media player, especially since I've been following the AVS Forums for over 4 years just to keep abreast of the new developments and features. I mainly watch all of my movies via USB from external HDDs. I can't stand streaming as I want my high bitrate audio and video. Afterall, I didn't buy this expensive home theater set up for nothing!

The best media player ever built.

Dave W, Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: Here's the problem: I have a large collection of DVD's & blu-ray discs that I hate messing with and media carousels are notoriously difficult to keep balanced (leading to scratched discs). I also have dozens of different formats of home video files from the various cameras I've owned. What to do? I started with Apple's wondeful AppleTV, but it wasn't powerful enough for my needs and it's locked into Apple's ecosystem.

A fantastic little gem not many know about

Calczilla, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: This is a sweet media player. It plays just about every media file there is. Tons of settings in the menus, great on firmware updates (you can backdate to any prior revision). It's lightweight (when no drive is inside; supports up to 3TB). No fan, so no fan noise (but that means any drive used must be cool-running). 4 USB ports for attachable media (if you count the one inside), plus eSata and an SDHC slot.

Steep price for trying something that is not working

DZ, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Disclaimer: Mediaplayer/streamer manufacturers always use an excuse to blame home network when something does not pop stream correctly. In my case I used two streamers in turns but connecting to exact the same Ethernet port. Dune Smart vs. PopcornHour A300. Connecting to 1Gbit network and NFS share where I had jellyfish 90Mbit test file. Popcorn played without a hitch, Dune could not at all. I have tried over SMB same effect.

Outstanding ISO Player

Frank Sawicki, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: Although this player has many features, I purchased it primarily to replace an HTPC that was only being used to play DVD & Blu-Ray ISO files. It has been performing flawlessly and is much less cumbersome than using a PC for that purpose. The wide range of media files that it plays (from drives attached directly or through a network) is quite impressive and the build quality is excellent.

The BEST Network Media Player

jimsparkman, Amazon
25 October 2012
  • Summary: Excellent network media player. Over the years, I've tried many devices and technologies, including building my own systems with Media Center and Sage. The Dune devices play everything and very realibly. I'm now playing my entire library from my QNAP NAS so I only have to manage and update media to a single central location. Using Zappiti's interface [...] and it is awesome. So far, no issues and 100% reliability for Dune and Zappiti over the network.

Guter HD-Player

Hertzkasper, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: Nach etlichen erfolglosen Versuchen, einen Media-Player zu ergattern, der auch Blu-Ray-Verzeichnisse vom Server via Netzwerk auf den Bildschirm bringt, hat mir ein Kumpel diesen Dune hier empfohlen, den es leider nur noch gebraucht gibt. Was die Video-Wiedergabe vom Home-Server angeht ist das Gerät wirklich top. DVDs und Blu-Rays (iso oder Verzeichnisse) werden einwandfrei sogar mit Menü widergegeben.

er kann einfach alles!

Sylvio Herzog, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: habe mir diesen mediaplayer auf gutes zuraten geholt um alles was ich will abzuspielen .... er kann es! bis auf blu-ray isos hatte ich keinerlei probleme mit dem gerät. für leute wie mich die die schwarzen streifen hassen ist dieser sowas von zu empfehlen, da er so unglaublich viele zoom optionen bietet. ich habe eine 2 terabyte festplatte eingebaut und konnte darauf unzählige blu-ray- rips speichern. geschwindigkeit sowie bedienfreundlichkeit 1+.
