I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

The crux of your writing while appearing reasonable at first, did not really sit very well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do nicely to fill in those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I will definitely be fascinated.

I've had my two A400's for over two years now and they still continue to give excellent performance with my 2D and 3D BD ISOs and MKVs created from BDs. I have been very pleased. Hopefully they last a long time like my PCH C-200. I've had my C200 since late 2009 and it stll does a great job. Although I did need to replace the power supply in SUmmer 2014.

They have released the 410 pro without fixing the 400/300/200! Jokers

What needs to be fixed? I use my two A400s on a daily basis with my BD ISOs and 3D ISOs. They perform extremely well. I've had them around 1.5 years. I have been extremely pleased with them during this time. I just select the title from the cover art on my tablets, and it starts playing on the A400 I've selected.

I agree. How can it be possible?!
I can accept bugs and some unstability, but not in that amount they've given me, at that price. I'll never buy a Poocorn again.

I've been very pleased with my two A400's. Especially with the recent firmware releases on the PCH forum. It's working great playing back my 3D BD ISOs over my network.

This site doesn’t give the real score for Popcorn players. For example, 2 players first in the range of 59 and 60 (Popcorn Hour PopBox & Popcorn Hour A-200) are suddenly upgraded to 45 and 46. Also with the other PCH players they are giving unreliable scores. Iboum has surely made a deal with the Popcorn management. 1 STAR FOR ALL POPCORN PLAYERS! ! !

We have made a deal with nobody.!

The Popcorn Hour players have always scored highly on this site because there are a lot of Popcorn Hour owners and, presumably, they're happy.

Picture quality is nice not too many bugs for me. Remember ALL new products have bugs it would be a lie to say they didn't. Picture quality improved over their other models and also all the Realtek players I had owned. Himedia cheap and nasty, Xtreamer takes too long to fix bugs. Realtek for those on a budget, sigma for those that want better quality.

Instead of supporting the existing players they just keep coming up with shiny new products. I lost over 80 EUR selling their crappy ex-flagship model - POPBOX V8 !
Their FW development is a joke. Stupid Syabas app store instead of fixing SERIOUS BUGS.

Still waiting for Popcorn's other products with BD-ROM.

This is the first media player on SG8911 chipset.

Would Dune-HD catch up?

Got my A-400 on 12/3/12. Bought the WN-160 wifi dongle with it. Set up unit and really liked the NMJ to see the cover art and synopsis for my blu ray (BDMV) files. Updated fimware but reset it to original as the steaming was to slow so my video would freeze and no sound. I am using a Netgear R6300 802.11ac router. I will probably run Cat 6 cable to get Gigabit ethernet instead of using Wifi or my 500 Mb/s Powerline network. Hopefully firmware will fix the network speed problem. Other than that the unit is high quality has a Silverstone case, lighted remote and the weight and feel of a good unit.

Suddenly almost 4.25 star rate. I was wondering who has tested this media player. Just come up with a rate from nothing without any benchmarks. Maybe Popcorn gives is own rates for their own players on this site. Or they made a deal with Iboum.
As mentioned "country USA", but it is actually manufactured in China, because China maintains probably a better quality.
I do love to have some responses from this site! ! !

It's certainly nothing to do with us. Only just looked at this page now in fact...

Syabas have a big user base and it appears a loyal one.
