Argosy 335HT
Exceptionally cheap internal HDD player. There are generally good reports about it's performance and nothing on the specification side to complain about, with a good variety of AV outputs and DTS downmix.

Presuming this is Realtek 1073 based then the Argosy 335HT is a bargain. Performance with all the Realteks is very good and format support is wide. It even looks aesthetically reasonable despite not being as compact as some others. The user interface is quite different to other Realteks and would be an improvement if the 335HT is indeed a Realtek.

We will be doing more research in days to come and posting the results here.

After research just a few of the weblog posts in your web site now, and I really like your means of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site list and shall be checking back soon. Pls take a look at my site as well and let me know what you think.

It is now Sept 2015, and my Argosy still going strong. Plays all DL Material from the Web. Just works well all the time. Never going to get rid of it. Period. I bought another media player to update my AV system, it sucked badly, wouldn't play half the files the Argosy could, would not start up properly, etc. Took it out and put the Argosy back and life is good again. Sorry for resurrecting a dead thread. Peace.

Purchased one of these to play all my dloaded media, didn't want fancy menus, just wanted everything to play and play well. Installed 3.5 drive for 2TB of storage. I have yet to find something that doesn't play and play well. All I can say is if you treasure fancy menus and la dee da, don't go here. If you want bullet proof, utilitarian uber functionality, then this is the machine for you. Just works well right out of the box. Love it !

I have one of these. First of all, IBOUM is kind of misleading. The price for this is around $70-$90 without harddrive and $160-$180 with 2TB (source Newegg, depended on it's on sale or not). I believe in people and Iboum ratings, so I bought a Popcorn Hour a-200 (same as a-210, only difference in the case). Here are the differences between the twos:
Video: a-200 is better (10 points vs 8 points for argosy. To me, it's a big plus for Popcorn Hour).
Audio: a-200 is better (same here).
Webs: a-200 has more apps, more webs access (maybe 10 points vs 4 points, to me, I don't care. Maybe I play Youtube and that's it. Argosy has Youtube).
Interfaces: a-200 is better (10 points vs 5 points. Again, to me, that's a big problem. I'm not looking to the interface, but I'm watching the movie).
However, there are a lot of trouble with Popcorn Hour. First, I have trouble to play some of my files. Some of them won't play at all (Popcorn Hour, in the forums, says you need to convert your files to this, to that, etc.). Second, some of my ISO files won't play at all (same saying from Popcorn Hour even though they said they support ISO). Third, some of my files play without audio (I check and the audio is dolby digital using their info). Fourth, you can only play with one and only one subtitle (with Argosy hv335t, you can have as many as you want). And finally, sometimes when you navigate around, Popcorn Hour hangs.
If you want a cheap, decent player without a lot of trouble, I think Argosy hv335t is a very good candidate.

I have had one of these for a year now. Very nice player. Handles everything I have thrown at it. Best of all, it also works with a DC plug in my car. I hook it up to my van's DVD Player and use it to play movies for the kids on long road trips. The interface is very basic, and can be slow if you throw a bunch of files into one folder.

Any further updates on this device? N3we*g is still selling these, so I may purchase. Seems solid, but not spectacular.
