  • Summary: Mine was running fine for just over a year, when the warranty expired it went wrong after I had to down power it from a frozen movie - no picture on screen and the ethernet light didn't come on. I sent it back for repair a short while later (costing $50 which is partially expected as it was out of warranty), it came back all working again.... for a few months!
  • Pros: Plays virtually everything!
  • Cons: When it doesn't it crashes, needing a downpower which will eventually kill the box.

A high definition streamer that lives up to the hype.

  • Excerpt: This media centre has given me and I am sure many others a solution to watching High Definition Media on their LCD/Plasma TV sets. It is a "Streamer" that can stream content up to 1080p. This is done through HDMI on my set, but the back of the unit has the following connections. Ethernet, HDMI in, S/PDIF out, stereo RCA and composite video, S-Video and component video out.
  • Pros: Reliability

  • Summary: Had this product for a LOOOONG time now, was in the first 200 units. They are constantly updating features (I am in beta group), it plays every video I can find, HD looks incredible. Support community is great. Main issue is with speed of moving around video, they have some good tricks (time seek, 1 = 10%, 2 = 20% etc), but i-frames support will make it much quicker. Next 2 months I am promised :) Really I wouldn't hesitate to recommend though.
  • Pros: Plays everything that I want
  • Cons: Audio playback isn't that brilliant, FF/RW could be quicker

  • Excerpt: Popcorn Hour 100 Det här är en gammal variant på en digital multimediamottagare som jag har. Den fungerar alldeles utmärkt och jag har här i huset tänkt ha den som mediaspelare på övervåning med den. Jag har haft den sedan 2008 och hade den i lägenheten tidigare, men här i huset har jag uppgraderat min popcorn hour, men det är absolut inget fel på denna. Man kan säga att den bara vuxit ur sin kostym.
  • Pros: Användbar mediaspelare .
  • Cons: -

  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce boitier fin 2008 et j'en ai toujours été extrêmement satisfait. J'ai toujours essayé de centraliser mes contenus numériques car avec les années, je commence à en accumuler (enfin comme nous tous) : photos, vidéos, films, musique... Je cherchais un appareil unique pour lire tous mes contenus.
  • Pros: Ultra - compatibilité  !  Discret, Silencieux, Evolutif, Grosse communauté, Prix
  • Cons: Pas de tuner, quelques soucis sur lecture de fichiers ISO, chauffe pas mal, disque IDE seulement
