Summary: I am a software developer and I couldn't set it properly, the user guide is just a copy/paste of screenshots with their titles but no explanation, the wizard setup is weird, wifi is incompatible with few standards. I spend 2 hours on forum to discover that.
Plays everything, nice interface, but some streaming issues
4 January 2012
Summary: As advertised, I've been really pleased w/ this unit in the regard that it will literally play every media format you throw @ it. I like the interface, all be it a touch sluggish, but it was really easy to setup in my opinion.
Summary: I've been trying to merge my PC world with my TV for almost a decade now. There's always been something that has worked well enough, but this I see as the final solution. Thank goodness! No more transcoding, no more making menus, no more burning discs.
Summary: Shipped with the wrong style power cord (not for the US). Has the standard computer-type plug on the other end and the DC adapter was universal, so easy to fix... if you have spare power cords lying around.
Summary: I've been using Popcorn Hour devices for years now. The A-210 can play just about every video and audio file that you can find. Alternatives such as the Apple TV don't even come close to the Popcorn Hour.
Summary: I had an Egreat media tank (PCH-a110) before this. this is a nice upgrade. it does take some technical network knowledge to really use its full potential. if you have a media library you want to use or share this works well.
Summary: Came from using the Popcorn Hour a-110 then c-300, then a-200 and finally the latest a-210. worth the money for simply not hearing the loud fan that pledged the previous model. Super fast but i am still annoyed that 3tb is not support without leaving it ntfs and having a thumbdrive with the nmt...
Summary: I've been using, trying to figure out this device for several months. Been to different forum, spoke with tech support, etc. As much as I'd like to, I can't give it more than 2 stars. The goods: 1. Plays all my video files without a hitch.
Summary: We love the A210, have had it for about six months. Deciding on how to backup our DVDs and how to transfer the videos was a learning experience. More information here at[...] on our setup. Great choice, one of the best pieces of gear we have purchased.
