Think Twice

J. King "Techno", Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: I received a defective popcorn hour media jukebox which I returned to Popcorn Hour. They won't pay return shipping and they accessed a 15% restocking fee because the box was damaged during shipping. After the fees and the shipping cost in both directions, I essentially paid almost $100 for a defective item that I had to return. I just can't believe how unreasonable this company was to deal with. Some of the other reviews indicate this a good product.

THIS ITEM IS USELESS!

VincentinNY, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: Where to start? This item is completely useless. I purchased the a-400 to be used as my main media player for replay of .iso media files. This unit constantly buffers, locks up and losses network connectivity. I cannot imagine anyone being happy with the current state of this product. The manufacturer, Network Media Tank, releases firmware updates every few weeks but the problems persist.

DO NOT BUY

  • Summary: Hi I have this unit about 2 months. It is the worst purchase of my life. I have the Tivx 6500 five years, one year Xroid A1, Xtreamer Prodigy Silver, and lately Mede8er MED1000X3D All are better than the A-400 It has a long list of failures in the operation Interfas and, worst videos with high rates fercuentemante runs jumps and crashes.

Popcorn hour A-400: The player that works whenever it wants, yet it can't do no wrong and the fault always lies with the user.

The Bigmac, Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: A product rushed to market that asks paying customers to act as beta (or even alpha) testers. I've never purchased a product before that makes you jump through as many hoops as this one, just to achieve the most basic functionality. My 3 year old Boxee Box blows this thing out of the water in every single department, except 3D ISOS which the Boxee does not play. Trying to watch a 3D iso on this thing is an excersise in futility.

Excited to get the a-400 but very disappointed when it did not work

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: It pop, it stutters, it stops playing, it freezes. I went through 2 firmware updates and no fix. I played bluray 3d iso. Save yourself the headach and get a KDLINKS HD700. I have both and the KDLINKS works flawlessly. Crappy interface but the player works. I can't believe the A-400 sucks this bad. frustrating....

How can this not work?

dancjodanc, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been an owner of Popcorn media players for years. The C-200, the A-300, and then I bought the A-400. I heard there were some issues with the new A-400 player..but I didn't realize the issues were so broad or so bad! Before I continue, I did update the firmware as soon as I unboxed the A-400. I put in a 3 TB hard drive, which I was told the player would read. It did see the hard drive, and once I formatted to NT filesystem...it saw the drive.

  • Excerpt: За такие деньги брать это чудо крайне Не рекомендую, лучше взять аналог от дюны, там всех этих косяков не наблюдаеться
  • Pros: Чтение 3DISO, по большому счету пожалуй и все )
  • Cons: 1) Буферизация при работе с Nas 2) Буферизация когда вставлен внутренний жесткий диск 3) Тормознутый интерфейс 4)При воспроизведении BD дорогу с языком выбирает с потолка, независимо от настроек приоритета 5) Самопроизвольное отключение (с новыми прошивками вроде пофиксили) 6) Жесткий диск и USB расположены не удобно (с боку) 7) Периодически теряет связь с роутером (несовместим с некоторыми моделями TP-link) 8) Мало русских сервисов 9) Не умеет работать с IPTV провайд...

Wichtigste Fähigkeit fehlt!

lampenfan, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: Dieses Teil, Popcorn Hour A-400 kann keine BluRay Menus abspielen. Ein BluRay-/Mediaplayer der das nicht kann ist für mich ein Witz. Sonst ist das gute Stück recht schnell und kann sehr viele Formate abspielen. Deshalb (k)einen Stern und das Gerät zurück zum Absender.

Für den Laien der Hammer!

Martin Niederhuber, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Kann leider über die Bildqualität nicht viel schreiben, da ich es nach gut 6 Stunden und unzähligen Telefonaten ( Freunde, die in der IT Branche tätig sind ) nicht geschafft habe das Teil in mein Netzwerk einzufügen. Derartige Probleme hatte ich bei meinem ASUS O Play oder beim WD TV LIVE nicht im Ansatz. Nah an der Verzweiflung habe ich dann allerdings in diversen Foren gesehen, dass ich nicht der Einzige mit meinem Problem bin, das Ding wieder verpackt und retourniert.
