Not for the weak at heart

Longhorn, Amazon
22 September 2011
  • Summary: This thing is really amazing. It has played everything I have thrown at it, even BD ISO files. The Blu-Ray video (1080p 24 fps) and audio (DTS-HD MA and Dolby True HD pass through) is incredible. But...and this is a major but...this gadget is not a plug-and-play device.

Great device! Exactly what I was hoping for.

Michael J. Scott, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing is incredible. It does everything I want it to. Every file i throw at it, the pch reads it no problem. It was very simple to set up, just plugged it in and everything on my PC was there. I bought this only for streaming Matroska MKV files and it does that wonderfully.

The video Swiss Army Knife - with BD support

Francois Caen, Amazon
26 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought my PCH from Amazon 5 months ago. Things were a little rough at first. The firmware back then couldn't reliably play BD rips from SMB shares, and I had to add a hard drive to the PCH for local playback. Also, the PCH had to be rebooted a couple times a week.

Where open source lack of support and featureless closed systems meet

Rookhawk, Amazon

  • Summary: The PCH C-200 was an incredibly disappointing experience for me and am I every greatful I bought it through Amazon instead of direct from the manufacturer.

Long time user

James, Amazon
24 July 2010
  • Summary: I have been a popcornhour user since the initial a100 release and I can honestly say that the c200 is a great step forward. It plays almost any file you could possibly want, and has made bluray disc loading a thing of the past in my house.

Best NMT and/or Popcorn Hour I've owned!!

Ryan, Amazon
21 July 2010
  • Summary: I just got my C-200 all set up after receiving it yesterday. Tried everything to get it to choke up and stutter. I never once experienced lip sync issues on file formats that were supported and known to work fine.

Mired in bugs. Could have been great but falls disappointingly short.

Eric Everhard "The Champ", Amazon
21 July 2010
  • Summary: I received my Popcorn Hour C-200 a few days ago. This is my first Popcorn Hour machine. My decision to purchase this machine was that it had a media drive bay for a hard disk and or a Blu Ray player as I wanted to remove the clutter around my A/V area.

C-200 Dead after three days

Craig Rounds, Amazon
24 June 2010
  • Summary: I also ordered direct from PCH and not Amazon... I really wish I had ordered from Amazon. The unit worked fine for three days and then never booted again. PCH would not send a new unit but instead insisted that I RMA my existing unit for repair in California.

not worth the money

Tuscan Sam "Tuscan Sam", Amazon
11 February 2010
  • Summary: I actually bought from NMT's website just before Christmas. big mistake. If you are going to buy direct, beware you are probably going to have to pay a big tax bill at import. Mine was $150! It owuld have been much cheper here on Amazon. Next, on opening the box the case was badly marked.
