Popcorn Hour A-110 / Networked Media Tank

 

Today we get our grubby little hands on the Media Player coined “Networked Media Tank”; this is the Popcorn Hour A-110. While its name recognition is not that of Apple, it does imply that it's time to sit and enjoy some theater.

Popcorn For All - Syabas Popcorn Hour A-110 and B-110 Network Media Tanks Reviewed

 

In March we took a look at the original Popcorn Hour A-100 and it quickly became our in-house media playback device of choice. Sure, it wasn't perfect - but its near flawless display of 1080p content, along with its incredible ability to playback...

Popcorn Hour A-110 review

 

Popcorn Hour's media player is extremely flexible, but a bit daunting

Powerful and flexible ; Firmware is updateable

Inadequate manual ; Steep learning curve

A very flexible and powerful media streamer with some extra handy features for those who want to stream files across their network

Syabas Technology Popcorn Hour A-110 review

 

Strong community support means this media steamer can be expanded through third-party applications, but both the Popcorn Hour A-110 itself and its applications can be difficult to set up and use.

Popcorn Hour A110

 

With unprecedented file format support and a host of functions, is this the ultimate multimedia player?

The Popcorn Hour A110 may not be the most attractive media player on the market and there are cheaper alternatives that support as many file formats and codecs but lack the internal storage and network connectivity. However, if you want the ultimate...

Popcorn Hour A-110 1TB review

 

It boasts massive storage and enough format support to make Steve Jobs's eyes bug out, but can the A-110 wrest the media-player crown from Apple TV?

If you’re a rip-monger or a download fiend the Popcorn Hour is a fine media streamer – if you don’t mind slightly lacklustre sound

Popcorn Hour A-110 1TB

 

A ripper and downloader's delight

Other than DRMed files, it'll play anything ; massive storage capacity ; excellent picture quality ; a bit cheaper than the HD Digitech HDX-1000 1TB

Could be more musical ; not entirely idiot-proof ; doesn't have an SD card slot
