Summary: I bought this 7 months ago. Worked good. Upgrades are a pain and their support sucks. Most recent upgrade bricked the Xtreamer Silver. Xtreamer told me Reseller is responsible for warranty work and Miss9090 (the seller) won't return my email. So, I am stuck with a bricked piece of hardware that won't work. If you feel you must get this, buy it direct from Xtreamer. That is the only way that the warranty is covered. Unless, you have a local shop that may carry it.
Summary: My better half bought this for me as a gift to upgrade from my Popcorn Hour A110 since this box supports 3D. I wanted to test it out before I put an internal drive in so I plugged one external USB drive into it and powered it up. It fired up and found the external drive. I turned it off to read more about how to get poster art to appear vs file names for the movie rips. After that the machine failed to power up.
Summary: I bought this product about 2 day ago and I returned. It worked too bad! I tested about 30 3D blu ray .iso. It played but It wasn't full screen on my Tv(I am using a 47LG6500). I also tested Blu ray movie .mkv, the problem was the same! bad picture and It didn't support codec DTS-HD (I tested on my Denon 391 AVR). So, I'm never use Xtreamer product anymore!
Summary: I don't normally write a Non-technical review of such a product, and those that know my reviews know I often highlight the significant technical advantages or shortcomings. In this case I never was able to get the product off the ground, and that is as good as DOA. I have been working with Media players for years, building my own PVR's, and I am used to dealing with bugs and issues.
Summary: i received the xtreamer "finally" but the power button was broken "not working" also whenever I watch a movie it disconnected during the movie I don't know why I even upgraded to the latest firmware and nothing changed I truly paid for nothing
Summary: buy this device, planning to upgrade my WD TV Live Hub 1TB, as this does not support DTS-Master Audio, but I was not impressed to have it, the device is heavy aluminum casing, gives nice look, the interface is not me love is better tv live hub. I wanted to check the quality of the electronic components uncovering the device looks cheap electronics, the card looks like a remote control, find the famous chip realtek 1186, did not see it anywhere except this covered with a...
Summary: Bought this when it first came out. Initial firmware was a disaster. WIFI would not work, bluetooth was a non starter and the keyboard which came with the device never worked. Later firmwares have fixed a few issues, however the overall ownership experience has not been a pleasant one. There are better products out there for similar money.
Summary: sumvision cyclone is a lot cheaper and comes with hard drive and better than this and plays fra more files types the customer service for xtreamer is a non starter never met a more unheplful help !
