The HDX-Bone is something of a departure from the norm, using an ARM based chip previously seen in car entertainment systems, and the Apple iPhone (Telechips TCC8900:- ARM 1176JZ(F)-S Core). It also stands out as the first Media Player to be able to run Google's Android operating system, giving you access to many Android apps including web browsers, Spotify, Facebook, etc..

The video decoding performance of the ARM chip is impressive and at least on a par with any other Media Player currently available. It plays a wide range of formats and demonstrates it's power by playing an infamous high re-frame 'Planet Earth' sample. The playback of this sample demonstrates that the ARM chip is more powerful than the Realtek and at least on a par with the newest Sigmas. DTS and Dolby Digital downmix and passthrough are supported but lossless formats are not yet. Support may be added at a later date.

The player is physically tiny and is currently the smallest full-HD Media Player, even with the internal 2.5" HDD! It is incredible how much performance is packed into the tiny package.

Order HDX Bone three months ago from their website www.hdx1080.com, paid via PayPal, item never arrived, emailed them dozens of times asking when I can expect delivery, NOTHING!!!

This unit has no support. Also if video format suported it's high, have bad implementation. It's a crap unit. Don't buy

More hype then anything, don't let the "able to install Android" catch phrase get you. Even if Android is installed (which is a pain and not always successful) over 95% of the apk's will not work.
No home button on remote or display option. If you have media within multiple folders/subfolders once you're in it, to get out of it you have to hit backspace many times just to get to the main menu.
No dedicated ffwd or rwd buttons on remote only skip. To use ffwd or rwd you have to hold the skip buttons down.
If you want to display cover art thumbnails, each video file with the matching cover art had to be in it own folder. Thats right!!! If you have 100+ video files each file needs its own folder with the image file.
There is no direct standard USB connection on the player itself only a mini usb, you have use an adapter (which is provided), but still a pain.
All in all not a really user friendly device. Even with the ARM chipset, it's nothing extraordinary in comparison to other media players (WDTV Live, Theater+)

Chipset is actually a Telechips tc8900 the ARM 1176JZ(F)-S is the type of Arm CPU core that is in the tc8900 SoC along with an Arm Mali 200 GPU.

Nice media player lots of promise.
