Sumvision Cyclone MKV
Very cheap player that uses the Realtek 1073 chip. There is also a later HDD version with the same name: Sumvision Cyclone Enclosure.
There are two versions of both Sumvision Cyclone MKVs, one with DTS downmix and one without. As far as we can tell it is impossible to distinguish between the two externally. Both case designs come in new and old versions. We therefore recommend you get confirmation of the version from your retailer before purchase.
Performance is the usual very good for a Realtek 1073.
Firmware has been reported as less stable than average for this player and feature updates significantly lag the best players.
The various versions of this player and the lack of a working firmware update on the Sumvision site make us a bit wary. However, with or without DTS, it is internally the same as all the other Realteks so as long as the firmware is kept up to date it is a good machine at a great price.

I believe I am the first to reeivw this product. At first, I was a little hesitant to buy, because I have not heard any comments from other buyers. Currently, I am a very satisfied customer. Blu-ray playback and regular DVD playback are excellent, fantastic picture quality and amazing sound. It has all of the Dolby TrueHD and DTS MA HD audio decoders. For those with older AV receivers like mine, it comes with a digital coaxial jack instead of the newer optical. The best feature of this player is that I have encountered zero skipping or other playback issues. I had originally bought a Samsung BDP1500, and it was absolute crap, could not play half of the blu ray discs and had multiple menu navigation issues and functionality issues. This LG has none, and I am quite suprised that this entry level model is EXcellent. I highly encourage others to buy. The only gripe I have is that the price is now $20 lower than when i had purchased.

I have the Mk2 MKV and it is grat value - for money (bye bye DVD folders and racks) - hello streaming video. MP3's and 150 films per SATA hard disk. Great quality and built in upscaling of everything! - all over a wirelss connection or wired via RJ45 or USB2 for an extra £15 - make sure you get the purpose built 300N wireless dongle though or it won't work. So good I bought two - and I am working up to a third! (P.S. If you can work out how to do it it will stream BluRay quality content from a hard disk via USB at full 1080P - but you would probably have to go through a learning curve first unless you already know how to Rip DVDs)

This will not play 23.98fps files without stuttering.

You must have a dodgy wireless or USB1 connection. I am getting seamless playback of high density 1080P BluRay content at 24 fps via USB2 with no glitches whatsoever. It will not cope with wireless or RJ45 at this bandwidth - but no probs via USB2 doscking station.
