Summary: The Popcorn Hour is one of the older generation of media streamers. It is not for the novice who wants plug and play hardware. It is more for the technical person who can understand some of the more advanced features/settings. It does play virtually every known media (audio/video) format.
Summary: I brought this unit to play my MKV files, etc in the living room and to date it has not faltered once. Playback is faultless and HD quality is excellent. I was lucky to buy my unit "second hand-showroom model" at well under the retail price and it has been a money well spent.
Summary: Popcorn Hour A-110 HD Networked Media Tank This is the best media player I have tried, every format I have tried with it works. The menu is so easy to use even the wife can do it! My only criticsm and it is a minor niggle really, is that is doesn't support MAC OS formatted external drives.
Summary: Having read teh last review that says it cannot stream from a PC I felt I had to write this. It streams from a PC no problem at all. No jitter whatsoever. Not a single frame lost. I have mine connected into a Gigabit switch, not that it matters cause the port on the A110 is only 100 megabit.
Summary: I've had one of these for three months, and I absolutely love it. It's allowed me to back-up nearly all of my 690-disc DVD collection onto four hard drives and send my discs into storage. Anyone with needs similar to mine should look no further. BUT, bear the following in mind: 1.
Summary: This is a great product. Having read many many reviews about the different varied media streamers I came across this review and was totally sold. I have now had a popcorn A110 for 2 months and it's simply a great device. It plays anything and everything including protected Apple files.
