Kaleidescape Cinema One

PC Magazine
8 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Kaleidescape Cinema One is the company's first consumer-focused media server, but at $4,000 it's only for consumers with deep pockets.
  • Pros: Consolidates your entire DVD and CD collection into one library. Fast load times. Curated content is handy to navigate.
  • Cons: Very expensive. Needs an expensive accessory to consolidate your Blu-ray disc library. DVDs aren't consistently curated.

Kaleidescape Cinema One Review

20 August 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s easy to dismiss the Cinema One as just an exceptionally expensive Blu-ray player. Which it is. But that’s only a small part of its story. It’s also easy to make claims of how much cheaper you could build your own movie server. Which – depending on your technical ability and willingness to use “grey” software that is technically illegal – you probably could.
  • Pros: Phenomenal user interface manages movie and music collections, 4TB storage holds 100 Blu-ray/600 DVD/6500 CDs, Download store offers true Blu-ray quality downloads, Near instantaneous access to movies and iconic “Scenes”, Rock solid reliability and performance
  • Cons: Expensive, No RAID protection for storage, Ripped Blu-rays require disc-in-tray of use of DV700 Disc Vault, Doesn’t support 3D titles
