Good Media Server

davidt, Amazon

  • Summary: Finds media on all home PC's and laptops. Streams media from other sources and this is very good. Some built in internet radio links don't work and have to do a reboot to get access back to the box. You have to go on-line to find other drivers to get the box up to the manufactures spec and these links don't seem to work or are out of date. On the whole a good buy but there are better out there for the same amount of money.

Impressed

  • Summary: I recently bought a popcorn hour and must admit it's not a bad device. I purchased it because I wanted a device in which I could back up my files e.g. pics, movies, music and then watch these directly on my Samsung TV without having to stream (since with streaming the connection can timeout you can't fast forward etc....

Popcorn Hour A-110 (without HDD)

Haroon K. Sheikh, Amazon

  • Summary: The PCH A-110 is an impressive product with the ability to play most available media. The A-110 has good connectivity for both Audio, Video and Network. Packaging is excellent unfortunately the documentation is minimal, you will have to rely on the Wiki for answers to most of your questions if you are a newbie to this type of technology.

Popcorn!

  • Summary: Good product. Works well with my DLINK NAS. Media streaming works seamlessly and I am using Belkin 200Mbs mains repeaters to link it up with my BT Home hub. I haven't tried streaming any HD yet. It does seem a bit prone to not waking up properly when it hasn't been used for a few days, but that may be because I don't switch it off (it doesn't seem to have a proper standby function!) and it then seems to lose its handshaking with the HDMI cable.

Good but not perfect

Ross W Sargent, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the Popcorn Hour A110-HD as a replacement for my DLink DSM-520 media player. I had become frustrated with the latter's limited list of compatible video formats (which necessitated a lot of time-consuming transcoding with subsequent loss of quality) and DLink's apparent lack of support. The A110 has had very good reviews which emphasised its excellent format support.

Good but not perfect

John Lloyd, Amazon

  • Summary: I took delivery of the pch a few days ago and on opening the product i find there is no uk power lead! so i had to raid a spare pc i have for a power cord, not a great start. I bought a 640gig hard drive for it that was a breeze to fit but not so easy to set up. The pch comes with no instructions on how to set up the hard drive with the device so it was a case of going through the web to find out how to using a usb key to format and set up the file system.

  • Conclusion: Пользуюсь сим девайсом (но предидущей версией с тем же названием без некоторых полезных нововведений, которые, как мне кажется, должны были улучшить и без того неплохой медиацентр). Скажу сразу - это одна из моих самых любимых покупок за последние пару лет, о которой я не разу не жалел ни одного потраченного доллара (т.к.
  • Pros: Читате большинство форматов. Очень информативный пульт с фосфорицирующими в темноте кнопками. Качественный внешний вид. Надежность. Обновление прошивки. Качество видео и звука.
  • Cons: 1. WIFI - не понятно как его настроить, почему он то работат, то нет и т.п. 2. Не все жесткие диски подходят. 3. Многие манипуляции и настройки не вписаны в руководство и их нужно искать на форуме

Viele Formate, aber noch nicht genug Leistung

Porter, Amazon

  • Summary: Der A-110 überzeugte mich eigentlich auf allen Gebieten. Er unterstützt alle Codecs und Container, die bei mir Verwendung fanden. Man kann auf Netzwerkfreigaben anderer Rechner zugreifen und sich durch die Ordnerstruktur blättern. Man kann externe Untertitel an/aus-schalten und in Position und Größe verändern.

  • Summary: Guter Bericht von Willi Pricking! Habe die Poppi auch seit etwa 2 Wochen. Zum Punkt Dokumentation gibt es ein dickes Minus! Die Bedienungsanleitung ist ein Witz! Ein doppelseitig bedruckter Flyer. Bei den Möglichkeiten die die Poppi bietet, die ich derzeit nur erahnen kann, ein Armutszeugnis für den Hersteller. Ohne die erstklassige Forumsseite ([...]) würden viele Besitzer im Regen stehen.
