Power supply or SATA fire potential

BigShotCafe, Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Sigma chip based processor. DTS-MA support. Great concept. Feature ritch media player. Built in display for stand alone operation. Media Server and online client support. Online firmware upgradeable. Cons: Build quality issues. Household fire consern. Built in display is slow compared to realtime. Processor is slow for all the capabilities this unit is capable of. I picked this up to replace several versions of WDTVs and for its DTS-HD MA support.

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.

Mediocre media player

Aly Rashed Moustafa Rashed "armr58", Amazon
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. the picture quality is not good (HDMI) compared to other $100 players.

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. Blu-rays was able to play a couple at first but now won't even load. Just buy a dune player!

  • Summary: Don't argue, just get it; incredible resource for home networking media files. Let your imagination go when it comes to extensive networking the entire home, from office, rec room, family room, kitchen. Retrieve your favorite media in any room. Requires downloading to configure your own setup.

Big disappointment

Jakub Paskuj, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: C-300 has no wifi or hdd, display is useless mostly one step behind, remote control slow and you have to come really close, system freezes all the time, no internet browser, make sure you have backed up all your movies c-300 deleted once everything I had on the one partition, NJM database is 50% good, rest you have to add manually if you have more than 100 movies database can collapse and you have start over again.

  • Summary: This machine is the bane of my existence. The remote is very unreliable; the interface is fugly; I cannot get the iPhone app to connect with the machine; I cannot get it to communicate with my computer; the media jukebox is so slow it is not usable. I tried to resend it back complaining it was faulty out of the box because it was so slow. The company were a nightmare to deal with a didn't respond to my complaints.
  • Pros: Plays movies
  • Cons: Everything else

Enastående box för filmer

Tompa2003, NetonNet
21 January 2014
  • Conclusion: C-300 är tämligen lik sin föregångare C-200, men har utrustats med en liten färgskärm, nyare processor, samt en snyggare GUI. I övrigt är det till synes ingen större skillnad. En snygg och elegant box i borstad svart metall och tillräckligt med portar så att det ska fungera i de flesta sammanhang.
