ASUS O!Play Mini V2

Credit card sized computers are all the rage these days and for Rs. 4,100, you can get much cheaper alternatives that have a more powerful SoC and give you the freedom to tweak the OS. It really doesn't make sense to go in for such media players...

Panasonic Smart 500 GB HDD Recorder with Freeview Play

This is a potentially good product--ruined by the poor HMI (Human Machine Interface-graphics), in particular the EPG--very difficult to read on a 47" TV from approx 18ft away. No such problem with my old Humax PVR-9200T --has the best graphics and HMI...

Olive 06HD

There is a lot more we could have talked about with the Olive 06HD. It supports multi-room audio. It has a dedicated TI 192khz/24-bit Burr-Brown PCM1792 DAC and TI's top-of the line TPA6120A2 High Performance AudioAmplifier (current-feedback...

Prepac Oak Triple Width Wall Media (DVD,CD,Games) Storage Rack

I love this! I don't know why others seem to have a problem with it on balance, but for me it's wonderful! I may order another one. It doesn't tip at all. It's nice to look at too. My dvd's and tapes too fit perfectly. I'd advise anyone to order it....

Sauder Large Entertainment Center in Cinnamon Cherry

I was not sure how big of a TV I could put on this based on the other reviews. I just installed a 60" Samsung on it and it fits fine. Some of the upper shelves are a little blocked but that is O.K. with me.The place where the TV sets is farther out...

LTO5 Ultrium 1.5TB/3TB with Case

I really did not get to use this tape because the bkup tape machine I ordered turned out to unavailable. So my rating is neutral.

PREPAC - Double-Width Library-Style Media Shelf - Cherry and black CMA-0640

This is a great shelf for the price. Holds my media well, neat and close up to the wall. But I did not do a good job of counting my cases before I ordered and could have done well with an extra three shelves. Just a note if you are looking to get this...

Eminent EM7285 Hdmedia RT3

It may not be pretty, but Eminent's EM7285 network media player is certainly advanced. Built around the Realtek RT1185 chipset, it's compatible with a huge array of files and formats. The player ships sans hard drive, but one is easily loaded into the...

Patriot Box Office

With a street price of $100, the Box Office is competitively priced at the low end of the media-streamer spectrum. It won’t replace higher-priced alternatives, but its unique features and robust operation make it more than just a budget box.

Netgear PTV3000 PUSH2TV

For something so small, makes a big difference. Bought it for my Kindle HDX, watching films and viewing photos etc. A great bit of kit.

Popcorn Hour A-300

I've had two popcorn hours, the C-200 and now the A-300. The video quality of this was 3 years ago superior to any other mediabox device, which I think made these boxes very popular. At the time I compared several products side by side and the...

AC Ryan Playon!HD2

I've been an owner of the original AC Ryan PlayOn!HD for a while, so it was relatively easy for me to spot the differences/upgrades coming with the new PlayOn!HD2. First of all, what matters most not only to me, but also to many users out there, is the...

Asus O!Play Gallery

It must be mentioned that the HD sound has only one format support—Dolby Digital, with no DTS HD sound decoding. An iPod dock would have been more appreciated than a cable as the iPod keeps dangling and the display is not always visible (it is not...

Poundex 5-Tier Glass Top Media Shelf, Chocolate

True, the assembly instructions were a challenge. Fortunately, adhering to the sequence of drawings, while comparing them (carefully) to the actual pieces which we laid out on the floor, eventually made it quite clear what went where and when. It took...

Eminent EM7080

Take the optical disk drive out of a recent Blu-ray player and replace it with an HDD compartment. Squeeze the result into a glossy black box with roughly the same dimensions as a Mac Mini (complete with the external power supply) and you have the...

TiVo Stream

Just as advertised, however, sadly out of home streaming only supports copyright free channels deemed by your provider. I love it though, frees my tivo box up while I'm out.

Samsung Smart Media Player

I bought this to avoid having to pay Charter cable $7.00 a month to rent one of their cable box's. Instead I pay $2.00 a month for a cable card, saving $5.00 a month. So, it will take me a little over 2 years to break even but in the meantime I have a...
