Perfect-Home-Theater

Back in the days when I was picking out my first DVD player I was so up to date with all the set-top box and media player manufacturers. But today? Now when every $60 Samsung and Sony Bluray player plays back all kinds of files.. where are those companies that are leading the market?

I had to do some research.

I found there some promising and reasonably priced products from a handful of manufacturers out there.

Sadly xoro – the brand that I gave my money for a decent dvd player – seems not to play a leading role in the media player space nowadays.

But when you look closely there maybe some promising options out there:

  • Western Digital makes WD Live TV which is a decent sub $100 player
  • The Popcorn Hour A-300 and A-400 seem like solutions for the better off with a heft of ports and price tag of >$200
  • I quite liked the mid-range Dune D1 frome dune-hd and Xtreamer Prodigy boxes. They cost between $100 and $200 and they both seem really capable with a huge software package
