Beware: Product no longer supported - no firmware updates since 08/14
14 March 2015
Summary: I purchased this unit when it was first released. Compared to other devices available at the time, this one was top of the heap. Every firmware update seemed to fix a few more small bugs and things were looking very good for this device.
Summary: The Poporn Hour units have solid output performance and really live up to the quality of construction that you expect. That said, they are also not built for beginners. Initial setup, firmware upgrades (of which there are several) and outfitting a unit like this with something like NAMJ can be both...
Summary: Ive recently upgraded my old QNAP NMP1000 for this as it was starting to struggle playing some of the latest files. Its played everything Ive thrown at it so far.

Summary: Out of the box the A-400 has a solid feel and looks good. Configuring it with my NAS and stored media took some time. This is not a plug and play device, however its not impossible to setup. It plays fully uncompressed blu-rays over the network flawlessly.
Summary: This is by far the most powerful media player on the market. My high bitrate video files that would normally jitter on other media players are played as smooth as butter with this device. Love it.
Summary: I have owned various popcorn hours from the a-100 to a-400 over the years. It is the best networked media play by far - will play anything you throw at it. Over the years the interface has progressed along with features but its not for the novice (plug and play it isn't) If you want that get...
Summary: I owned 110 (still in use) for many years. It sucked with Playon and every attempt in opening a defect ended up going no where. Where it shines for me is a local storage media player. I rip with Dvdfab then FTP up to the internal drive. The 400 picture is improved.
I expected more for the price...and the firmware bugs still need work.

Summary: The unit does work with most of my media files "after" I updated it with some of the available firmware updates. If you go to the network media tank forum you can get almost weekly builds of firmware that fix various things and introduce new issues all the time.
