I used to own a PCH-A300 after a week of ownership, I returned it. I also used to own a PCH-A210, which play all my files without issues, but every time I updated the firmware I had issues, and it got tired of maintaining the jukebox. At the same time, I owned a Dune Smart Series D1, which played all of my files without problems, and the Zappiti jukebox was easy to maintain.
I sold my PCH-A210 and bought a Dune TV303D, which plays all of my files without any issues. I do not do 3D movies, and I do not do ISO movies. All my BD movies are ripped by using AnyDVD HD (decrypter) + ClownBD to get a main movie only Folder Structure file. For DVD I use MakeMKV, and for TV Shows I use MakeMKV as well.
The other media player that I liked was Mede8er. It played all of my files without issues, but I didn't like the jukebox. Too much trouble maintaining it, and editing it. Even now, you need two programs one for movies, and the other for TV Shows.
I recommend Mede8er if you want to play 3D movies and 2D movies. If you only care about 2D movies and a nice jukebox, I recommend Dune.
