A media tank that's NOT for amateurs

Bernard Farrell, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • 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.

Unalbe to use

Gayla M. Collins, Amazon

  • 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 ....

A tinker toy that's close to being outdated

Tyson, Amazon
20 November 2010
  • 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.

Video&AudioPlayer in HiFI-Optik

Robert Gußmack "sambrown", Amazon
8 December 2012
  • 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.

Guter Ansatz, aber nicht wirklich reif, immer noch nicht....

Thomas Mueller, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: Nach vielen Testkandidaten war dies der hoffnungsvollste Mediaplayer, aber auch nach zig Firmware-Updates ist er immer noch nicht ausgereift. Noch immer macht bei mir hauptsächlich das Streaming von BluRay-Rips über's LAN Probleme. Dabei stoppt oft die Wiedergabe einfach und das Gerät muss neu gebootet werden. Nun hab ich endlich ein Gerät gefunden, das dies besser beherrscht: der Dvico Tvix M3600 Slim S1.

User Review

Prisjakt
14 September 2010
  • Summary: Efter att jag köpt en Boxee Box så måste jag uppdatera detta omdömet. Popcorn Hour är ganska värdelös vad gäller hantering av overscan (den klarar inte det alls). Jag tittar mycket på anime och texterna hamnar i stort sett alltid utanför skärmen. Den klarar inte heller av SSA/ASS undertexter vettigt alls. De blir helt felplacerade och i många fall blir färg och dylikt helt fel. Boxee Box:en i jämförelse klarar båda dessa saker helt perfekt.
