Worth Buying award, at KitGuru UK
KitGuru is one of the UK's fastest growing hardware websites and they have recently reviewed the Playon!HD and Playon!HD Mini, both collecting the Worth Buying award!"If you love media and want something compact, high quality and user friendly for your living room or bedroom then these units make a great purchase"
“The unit itself is attractively designed – they have kept it simple, sleek ‘piano black’ and the top panel has a beveled logo engraved into the chassis which is subtle and appealing. It is also not that large either so we think many people using it in a living room will find it fits under a television or on top of a cabinet easy enough.
Media support is better than we expected and there was not a file in our vast collection that this device didn’t play directly or stream across the network. This is the biggest selling point because many of these devices fall at the starting block. Support from A.C Ryan is said to be top drawer with a 2 year warranty as well as proactive forum staff who interact with the public answering questions and even offering advice. This earns them bonus points as we hate to see a company selling products then leaving their user base twisting in the wind.
Another strong point are the firmware updates, we have had these units now for many weeks and have been using them regularly at night to give them a lot of real world testing. The interface has changed slightly several times and they add features and fix bugs on a fairly regular basis. Again, another massive selling point for the enthusiast user base who want one of these devices but don’t want to end up with something useless and outdated within a few months.
Pricing right now is very competitive. If you love media and want something compact, high quality and user friendly for your living room or bedroom then these units make a great purchase”
