Mediocre media player

14 March 2013
  • Summary: Upgrade to the latest firmware, Install a harddisc BUT format it first on you PC, Install a sata laptop blu-ray drive and you are in business. Business of trouble shooting. you will not find good customer support and you will have alot of problems to solve yourself.

Worse than a windows machine

Todd Astill, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: From the time it arrived it would not consistently play DVD, Blu-ray or mp4 files. Tried to scan my media using NJM and locked up every time barely into the process. Many DVDs wouldn't play any audio, no menu support on most and won't skip properly.
