Popcorn Hour A-400 review

 

Picture quality, fantastic build quality, plays things other players can't, loads of networking options, fantastic connectivity, can take a 3.5-inch hard drive for media storage

Quite expensive, have to provide your own internal storage, online services still not that compelling
