“Complete and Comprehensive” at Softpedia
Softpedia is one of the principal technology websites and they have recently reviewed the Playon!HD.
Although no awards are offered, the positive review is major exposure for the Playon!HD.
The conclusion below:“Calling it "just" a media player is a severe understatement”
“The A.C.Ryan Playon!HD networked multimedia player has been an extremely pleasant surprise, from the moment we opened up the package and up until fully discovering the numerous options it provides.
And that's because there's really not much else one might ask of it, both in terms of design and functionality.
So, the player from A.C.Ryan not only looks very good when placed near a HDTV, but it will also probably work with just about any type of multimedia file format out there in a very fast and seamless manner. Plus, it can be very easily connected to a network (either a wired or a wireless one), and in this case, it will truly show its potential.
And that's because the device not only provides access to certain Internet feeds, but also doubles as a NAS unit, beside featuring its own, built-in torrent download engine. There's also a built-in Internet radio tuner, and if you really love the songs a certain station is “airing”, you'll be able to easily record them for your viewing pleasure.
All in all, the Playon!HD media player from A.C.Ryan is a complete and comprehensive playback solution, very well suited for today's multimedia content, most of which is available in a digital form and downloaded from the Internet. And last, but certainly not least, we'll mention that we found its pricing to be extremely competitive, compared to some of the other products of this type available out there, and taking into account not only the numerous features and overall value the player itself provides, but also the wealth of the sales package”
