techPowerUp!
2 August 2011
  • Summary: Patriot's Box Office Core is an interesting system for those just looking for an affordable, compact unit to use as a media playback device. The fact that it does not ship with a hard drive means that some assembly is required, but this is quite easy even for those who generally do not touch the...

  • Summary: Bittorrent : Enabling BitTorrent on this device proved to be a bit more challenging than I would have hoped but it wasn't unmanageable. You will need to have a hard drive installed for it to work. First you have to go into the settings and enable logins.

  • Excerpt: Dedicated media players have been all the rage these last few years. The ability to browse through video files with your remote and watch anything in your library is a movie watchers dream. What about a player that can not only store your files, but download them through bit-torrent as well?

  • Conclusion: This unit sells for around 100$  which is fairly priced in my opinion.  It streams 1080P without any issues from a LAN connection or through a USB drive. We tested with .iso and .mkv files at 1080p and there we no problems while we streamed.

  • Conclusion: Before we begin we would just like to say that all of the RealTek-based media players on the market offer an amazing bang for your buck and even as little as a year and a half ago the amount of flexibility, performance and value seen here would have been unheard of in the HTPC market.

  • Conclusion: > Patriot BOX Office ma potencjalnie bardzo duże możliwości, ale wielu z nich nie da się wykorzystać w podstawowej wersji odtwarzacza – wymagają kolejnych wydatków. I tak, w urządzeniu można zainstalować dysk twardy 2,5-cala, ale oczywiście wymaga on dokupienia.
  • Pros: Bardzo dobra jakość odtwarzania materiałów, Wysoka jakość odtwarzania, Duża liczba gniazd, Możliwości pracy w sieci
  • Cons: Konieczność dokupienia modułu Wi-Fi
