Silver Award, at Mato78 Finland
Mato78 is one of Finland’s leading news & reviews websites and they have just awarded the Playon!HD their Silver award!
The testing showed that it is a worthy alternative to purchasing a HTPC, with file playback impressing.
Here is a summary of the conclusion in English:“It is justified to obtain AC Ryan's media player device instead of a HTPC”
“If you are going to purchase a HTPC, you should keep in mind what your home entertainment exactly wants, because the full bloody HTPC's are not always justified. You can achieve this also by obtaining even a simple media player that plays music and video. Today's media players can also do many other things, such as the network connection, listening to the radio and viewing photos. Is it necessary to obtain a simple HTPC or media player? In many cases, it is justified to obtain AC Ryan's media player device instead of a HTPC. From the list of the technical data, we can see that it supports a wide variety of video and subtitle formats. Also, it can also be regarded as a much lower electricity-consuming device when compared to a gaming HTPC.
We tested the AC Ryan's rich media player for months in the living room entertainment centre and we were very pleased. The Playon!HD, with HDMI output to your TV, plays a variety of video formats. To our delight, it played 720p and 1080p-resolution MKV containers packed full of material and also began to play immediately after receiving the command. It is possible to directly download the Torrent files, which is a handy feature. We are also positive for the possibility of increasing the number of USB ports on the hub and USB card readers. Although the menus seemed a little outdated at first, AC Ryan improved this after an official firmware update. I think the device menus are simple to understand and clear. The menus are easy and quick to find, making the overall use quite easy.
When weighing up the pros and cons, the Playon!HD from AC Ryan is a worthy recipient of our Silver award”
