The ultimate media player box? We take a look at the Popcorn Hour flagship.

Excellent codec support ; Strong build ; Improved UI

No Wi-Fi ; Expensive ; No iPlayer ; No Netflix ; No LoveFilm

Popcorn Hour proves the point itself, offering an app for Android smartphones and iOS devices. However, it's not free (£1.99) and doesn't have a particularly slick interface.

Popcorn Hour C-300

 

Accessing the video on your home network, or playing files from USB devices is one of the growth areas for home cinema. And no device offers more options than the Popcorn Hour C-300, with incredible video format support and outstanding upgrade options,...

Stunning picture and sound quality, has a wealth of options for media lovers, Blu-ray support, great connectivity, tool-free hard drive caddy, plays pretty much anything
