Popcorn Hour C-200 Review

The Gadgeteer
3 March 2010
  • Excerpt: I am a TV junkie and whenever I accidentally miss one of my favorite shows, I use various methods to download the video file so I can watch it. I don’t watch the shows on my iMac or iPhone though. I stream them to my 65″ RPTV so I can watch them in my living room. Over the years I’ve tested several video / media players and have had good luck with the WD TV HD Media Player and more recently, the Popcorn Hour A-110 .
  • Pros: Fast, Very expandable with USB, hard drive, CD drive, DVD, Blu-Ray drive, Can view internet video, radio, etc.
  • Cons: Large footprint, WiFi is not built in, No web browser or Netflix feature, Some issues with playing SD CDs in Blu-Ray drive

  • Excerpt: One of the best way to save money and still get a kick ass home theater set up has always been three words, “build it yourself”. Now the company Saybas is changing that and hopefully for the better with the Popcorn Hour C200. The Popcorn Hour C200 is a Network Media Tank that promises to pack a wallop when it comes to home theater set up’s.

Syabas Goes Blu - Popcorn Hour C-200 Reviewed

DigitalReviews.net
12 November 2009
  • Summary: If you are in the market for a Network Media Player the choice between the A-110 and C-200 is not as obvious as it seems. Realistically, if you are not after Blu-Ray playback and the hi-fi looking box doesn't appeal to you, the A-110 is still an excellent choice - Provided you can ignore all the not the latest and greatest malarky.

  • Excerpt: There are a lot of excited people in the office today! The courier just dropped off a rather large parcel containing the brand new Popcorn Hour! We immediately ripped open the package, but not before taking a few photos first!

TEST: Popcorn Hour C-200 - Allsidig for de kravstore

PC World
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Popcorn Hour eies av selskapet Syabas, som i mange år har stått bak programvare brukt i en rekke medielinker. Med deres første modell, A100, var selskapet først ute med å tilby avspilling av x264/MKV-formatet, og det i 1080P-oppløsning. A100 hadde plass til en intern harddisk og HDMI-tilkobling. Enheten var ikke avhengig av en pc med installert programvare eller UPnP AV/DNLA-server. Man kunne koble seg direkte til delte kataloger på en pc eller nettverkdisk.
  • Pros: Utmerket fjernkontroll. Optisk kan monteres. Mulighet for intern harddisk. Generelt god formatstøtte og funksjonalitet.
  • Cons: Ikke Youtube-støtte. Brukergrensesnitt for musikkavspilling.

  • Excerpt: Najnowszy odtwarzacz Syabas Technology Inc. to sprzęt, który na długo przed premierą wzbudzał żywe zainteresowanie potencjalnych klientów, mediów branżowych, osób zainteresowanych szeroko rozumianą branżą audio/video. Cóż takiego przykuło uwagę do najnowszego Popcorna? Tym czymś miało być nie tylko zerwanie z siermiężną stylistyką dotychczasowych produktów, ale również bezkompromisowe podejście do oferowanych przez sprzęt możliwości.

PopCorn Hour C-200

lemondenumerique.com
13 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Le PopCorn Hour C-200 est le lecteur multimédia le plus évolué que nous ayons testé jusqu’à ce jour. Il s’est aussi révélé être le plus performant. Il l'est également plus que son prédécesseur, le modèle A-110. Il séduit donc grâce à deux points importants : le dernier processeur Sigma Design pour la lecture des médias et la possibilité de changer le disque dur contre un lecteur Blu-ray donc une certaine personnalisation.
  • Pros: Le design, La possibilité de changer de médias (HDD ou Blu-ray), Les connectiques, Les possibilités réseau, Les configurations audio PCM et RAW, La compatibilité avec les formats audio, photo et vidéo dont HD, La lecture Blu-ray, Les boutons en façade, La télécommande rétro éclairée
  • Cons: Services Internet non localisés, Pas d’aperçu pour les images et les vidéos par défaut, Format audio FLAC non supporté lors du test

  • Excerpt: Míg a videomagnókból, DVD-lejátszókból még könnyű volt nagy mennyiséget eladni, addig az újabb Blu-ray lemezeket használó asztali eszközök már nem fogynak ilyen gyorsan. Ez persze nem meglepő, hiszen időközben rendkívül egyszerűvé vált a HD-filmek interneten való beszerzése (akár legális, akár illegális forrásból).
