Summary: I have to admit I've had this tool for some time. A long time. I never reviewed it because I didn't quite understand how to use it. Bad me. It's not very hard to use, especially when you use it with a hard drive. Here are the steps: 1.
Summary: To keep it simple I'm going to use the PROS AN CONS system. PROS The system has played everything I've thrown at it codec wise, Has no problems with 720 or 1080 playback from my external hard drive of flash dive and has beautiful picture quality. PS hate Cinavia??? This plays them!
Summary: This is a great product. I have two of them. I also have the C200, the A-100 and the A-110. It plays everything I throw at it except older wmv files. My only real complaint is the cheap plastic case the device comes with. However, I would not let that stop anyone form buying this unit.
The best of the bunch.....but wait for the new 210

Summary: I was waiting for the 210, which is the new version of this - but when I talked to Popcorn Hour's Customer Service, I was told it is exactly the same as the 200...only difference being the 210 is fan-less and in a metal case.
Summary: If you are a digital connoisseur and have digitized a lot of your media for easy consumption then the Popcorn is the device that can play it all. The Popcorn A-200 is a device which can handle almost any type of digital media you throw at it including Blu-Ray disc ISO images...impressive. CONS: 1.
Summary: Overall, this is a good product. It will play just about any type of file format out there. This is the first product of this type that I have owned, and it is really changing the way we watch our television. My minor complaints: The fan noise is a bit loud, and the product gets hot.
Summary: I do not consider myself a hardcore media streamer, yet I was amazed how much this little box can do for my big screen TV in terms of media consumption. First of all, setting up did not take too long for me. I just had to wait for a new hard drive get delivered.
Summary: I settled on the A 200 a week ago after looking at AC Ryan, Western Digital and Xtream. Two different salesmen in different stores both said the Popcorn Hour had the best signal processor/chipset. Well, this might be company blather they are told to say but the proof is in the putting.
Summary: I believe the a-200 is a very good product. It will pretty much play any file format you throw at it. It will play back both dvd and bluray isos as well as the popular mkv or m2ts format which products like the playstation 3 and xbox 360 will not do.
Summary: I've had an A200(ordered directly from PCH) since they were first released at the end of January. If it wasn't for the loud fan I would give it five stars. The loud fan is the only bad thing about the A200. It plays almost everything I throw at it. And you get alot for the low price.
