AC Ryan 1.5TB ACR-PV73100

I cannot begin to explain just how useless this brand is. Having bought their rather expensive media streamer a couple of years ago, out of the box it didn't work and required a firmware update just to make it work. Since that firmware update, they...

Dvico TVIX Xroid A1

Very nice materials and so on, but the OS, Android, 2.2, it too slow, the market is VERY limited, no flash support and so on. I hope that they will release an updated version os the Android OS soon!! This one is hopeless.

HP Pavilion A1224n

I had a similar head crash on the unit that I purchased from Amazon March 15, 2006. It crashed in early October (7 months after receiving it) and when I called HP to find out what to do for warranty repairs, they said they had no agreement with Amazon...

Video Without Boundaries MediaREADY 5000

The MediaReady 5000 matches the features found in more expensive media center devices, but sluggish performance and excessive system noise make it difficult to recommend.

Fusion FRT102

This is the lowest level of freeview available. Why would anyone make anything less than this? It updates itself for no reason more than windows, and a nuclear power supply is not enough to keep the remote happy for more than a month. sorry to anyone...

HP MCPC Series

Outlook: In terms of brand name to the consumer market, we reckon HP's probably got a better shot than many in terms of making Media Center appeal to Aussie consumers. Check back shortly for our full review.

Olive O2M

As we said, the only things missing from the Olive O2M are speakers and an amp. We can easily picture this unit in an office, bedroom, games room, or dining room flanked by a couple of decent bookshelf speakers and a small tube amp. While $600...

Western Digital 2TB My Book AV-TV

So you have amazing performance along with a large capacity, sounds perfect doesn't it? The only issues with Western Digital's 2TB Caviar Black  is its price and limited availability. A price I'm sure will drop over time. But when you are getting...

Niveus Rainier HD Media Server

While there are many media servers, I would venture to guess that the average consumer doesn't understand them. One of the biggest reasons for that is the cost of entry. It is so far outside the reach of most people that they haven't bothered to...

Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Media Center MMV-200

The reason is the following the MMV-200 can be connected to a TV-set only via an RCA cable or with the help of RCA/SCART adapter, and don't forget reserving one plug socket for this gadget, it is a power-hungry device. To link up the MMV-200 with a...
