Attractive looking Realtek 1073 based player from the established German brand, Fantec. Offers the usual Realtek impressive format support and performance in a small shiny box.
On the hardware side, the features are very standard except for the side mounted USB and SD card ports. Which could come in handy. As far as we know there is no DTS downmix support. Firmware updates have been reasonable so far but nothing special. At time of writing the firmware lagged the best Realteks by about a month.
The Fantec TV-FHDS is an attractive little Media Player that is perfectly capable but unexceptional.

***THINGS YOU MUST KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY***1. A special eiidton likely including 20-40 minutes of additional footage is already being leaked to media for release later THIS YEAR!2. No special features. If you are a fan, of all the discs in your collection this is the one you really want the extra stuff. It really should be amazing!3. No 3D presentation. New technology in TVs is out this year and should enhance the home 3D experience. I don't usually care about 3D at home but things are changing. Be ready!4. There is also news that the movie itself will be re-released shortly with the 20-40 minutes of additional content I mentioned above. Why buy the Blu if you can see it with additional content and in the best possible 3D at theaters then buy the special eiidton just a few months later?I have to echo the comments of a previous reviewer. The studios are becoming so brazen. They released this eiidton and tried to explain the poor accoutrements by saying they wanted to save all the space on the disc for the best possible presentation . Are you kidding me? Bust out the extra discs already! Offering this bare bones BR right before re-releasing the movie with additional footage was also a classless act that spits in consumer's faces. Just rent the movie or see the enhanced version in theaters. It will tide you over until the Special Edition comes out.Lastly, there are plenty of people adding comments that you shouldn't wait for 3D because the home experience with 3D is lack luster or most people don't have the new 3D TVs. That's partly true, however IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT 3D! The lack of additional storyline, missing special features and blatent disregard for consumers (in an economic downturn) are what make this a bad deal. There is new home theater technology out this year that should enhance the home 3D experience. Your home theater will catch up. People who are excited about this movie should be standing together against a poor release offering, especially when there are terrific alternatives to hold us over.Wait a few months and get a much superior release for similar money.
