Plays everything you throw at it, lots of value for the price

Summary: This little box may not be the best out there but for its price and format support there is nothing else that beats it. I have bought three of these so far with no major issues. The interface for entering text (such as network names, ips and searches) is a pain but once you get it to work you won't have to touch it much.
Summary: PopBox handles blue-ray isos like a champ. For high quality movie playback this box can't be beat. It will play any format with ease. For TV shows and such, it is a little rough on the sorting and grabbing IMDb data, but again it'll play any format with ease.
Summary: For the size and price of the box its all I needed to complete my home theater. The product started off a little rocky but after a few firmwares it has become a solid media player. Plays all of the media I throw at it and is easy enough for the family to use.
Popbox is the best for the price and maybe just the best

Summary: I am really glad to see the Popbox being sold on Amazon again. It's first iteration was, well shall we say, problematic. But since release, the company has listened to it's customer requests for improvements and now it's firmware has been vastly improved. First, this thing just plain plays movie files flawlessly for me. I have about 250 BD iso's, dvd iso, mkv's and mp4's and mov's It plays them all without a hiccup. It's fanless. Video quality is fantastic.
Summary: I bought three POPBOX's last year, admittedly the firmware started off a little on the weak side but the folks at syabas have developed this Little Box into a a Big Hit. It is the perfect and simple solution for anyone who wants to organize their media library (movies. photos, music TV shows and etc.)and the apps are also a big plus. It was well worth the wait and investment.
Summary: Popbox plays my anime fansubs. Avi's, mkv's, mp4's, in 480p, 720p, and 1080p. You can switch audio tracks and subtitles. No glitches, or blocky colors. And it only cost 130 bucks. It only works with HDtv, but I was going to buy one anyway. There are other features; networking, streaming, cover art for the GUI with episode description from IMDB. There are apps and services. It also plays vob's and BD iso's. I don't use any of that stuff though.
