Summary: I unpacked and wired up the C-200 Popcorn Hour Media box, with arrived with almost no directions and a single HDMI cable. For this test I decided to connect it directly to my in-home network. The user interface for this product is about the worst I've ever seen. This is my first experience with any media tank, I expected something that would be fairly easy to use. I've a lot of experience with PC and network setup, none of which helped me.
Summary: I want to be fair with this product as I am not a techie. I struggle with new engineering and enlighted items that expand. I have tried(with help from those who know what they are doing) to find a good purpose for this product but have found none. None that interest me. I wish now I hadn't ordered it as it was wasted on me. But I must be honest.....I thought this was something I was going to truly enjoy.
A Good Product for The Tech Elite But if you want to watch Movies buy a Boxee or almost anything else

Summary: A Good Product for The Tech Elite if you want to watch Movies buy A Boxee The C200 is an awesome product but I cant recommend it - If your like my husband a hardcore techie you will add an internal hard drive and bluray player hardwire to a home lan and go to the NMT forum and implement a movie jukebox it looks awesome and works well as long as the files you are downloading ....
Summary: There's a lot of really great things about the Popcorn Hour C-200, but there is also a handsome list of things that are not. Given the slightly alarming price tag and the general difficulty of use, I wouldn't personally recommend to highly to anyone unless they happen to enjoy messing around with electronics and have the money to add on the updates.
Buy this only if you like to spend a lot of time tinkering with technology!

Summary: BUYER BEWARE!!! I bought the C-200 back in December 2009, it worked well for a while but died in August 2010, I had to send it back to popconhour for a new motherboard :( The device does play everything you throw at it and is faily versatile in that it can take an optional bluray drive and more internal store etc. Unfortunately it is an ugly addition to a home theatre setup.
Excerpt: i think this device it's good rating but is more expensive than popcorn hour c-210 but even so this product is the best product I ever bought and I use the handle links than some other brands that sell the same product. facilities and user interface is very nice, easier to operate and does not require a long time to study them.
Summary: Hauptgrund war FLAC abspielen und NAS (Samba / FTP bzw NFS) Eingebaut hab Ich eine 1TB-HDD. Einrichten dauert bisl aber die Zeit nehme ICh mir einfach. Samba und FTP eingeichtet und dann befüllt. Ton ist für meine Ohren sehrgut. Bild ist auch ok wenngleich ich darauf nur DVD-schauen da BluRay nicht abspielbar sind. Wenn man ein BluRay-Laufwerk hat das 2011 gebaut worden ist geht es prima die 2012er haben einen erweiterten AACS-Schutz drin.
Pros: - Может многое, даже больше - Воспроизводит почти все - Не шумит (у меня только диск кряхтит несильно) - Радио-пульт удобная вещь - Есть возможность использовать не по назначению (смотреть ютуб, хранить файлы, качать торренты и т.д.) - USB на передней панели
Cons: - Не работает из коробки (точнее работает плохо) - Корпус довольно большой - Не очень удобно просматривать фотографии, делаю это через ТВ - В некоторых фильмах (mkv) бывают неотключаемые субтитры - Иногда в ютубе забывает включать звук
