I've read the reviews on this upcoming player and it looks like it would be worth waiting for. Anyone here have any idea when it might reach the stores or Amazon?

Thanks.

My HT is an oldie but goodie!

Just saw a post on Engadget that this is being launched in the US on October 25th for $130.

It looks like it does support TrueHD but not DTS-HD. Still, it looks pretty good, especially considering all the supported formats and for pretty low price.

I'm not very familiar with these type of devices, though. Any one have any thoughts? I've been reading the forum lately, planning on building my first HTPC. I'll probably still go the PC route, but I'll wait a bit longer and see what else comes out this fall.

I'm in the same boat and trying to figure out whether I should go with this Asus streamer or the Netgear NeoTV 550. Anyone have any suggestions?

Skip both and get a Dune. They just work.

I've been looking at the Nixeus Fusion HD myself. I'm still on the fence myself on what my next set top box will be

While I gather that the Dune products are great, my budget won't allow it unfortunately. Plus, from what I've been reading, the HD2 and the NeoTV 550 are both pretty impressive for their price points. Now just got to figure out which one is the better of the two -- hopefully some comparison reviews will be posted.

If you want a cheap streamer that does the job, I recommend the Seagate FreeAgent Theater+. It also has built-in Netflix.

Any idea where I can find this device? Information for it is surprisingly scarce. The product should have already been released now, yet there's hardly any reviews or hands-on for the HD2.

I already use my PS3 for netflix and Blu-Rays. I am interested in the Asus O!Play HD2 for its compatibilities with almost every video format, even rmvb.

Not so sure about the practicality of the usb3.0 though.

The "NAS Server" part is oke, plays every movie and there is internet radio and TV. New firmware is also on Asus ftp server.

Exelent view in full HD 1080P, price in the Netherlands 134,00 Euro, i put a HD in it from 1TB, works also fine.


Good player, for less money.
