ill Guess its een like 300 of this thread here, but i have spent almost 3 weeks now googlig and looking at reviews at youtube and i belive i have narrowed it Down pretty much..

 

What i would like:

 

playing 3d bd iso, all formats, and i also want it to make 3D out of  2D Movie.

dts all that of course, and it all needs to be streamed from my NAS via cable.

 

FULLHD all the way!!

 

im looking at the mede8er 800 and it looks promising, it have the 2d to 3d thing i also want..

 

The newest thing is the popcorn hour 410 BUT that doesnt have the 2d to 3d simulation.. I asked them via mail.

 

I can also take something else, but since i have this Nice surround system tx nr-609 and a Fullhd 3D benq projector and active glasses its a shame to not use it..

 

Ill Guess someone can tell me what to buy please, im stuck..

 

also- are there any difference between the mede8er 800 and the 1000?

 

On a Norwegian shop the 1000 is cheaper than the 800? seems strange, but plz explain wich is the best For me <--

If you are streaming why go for the 1000 or the 800 they both can hold a drive the med600x does not hold a drive and should be cheaper. its the same thing. All the 600/800/1000 share the same hardware/firmware just different case arrangements.

I would not worry to much about 2d to 3d conversion as it usually does not look that great anyways.

The Mede8er or the A410 are both solid choices. You would be happy with either one.

no-i dont have a 3d tv, just a 3d projector that obviosly it looks, need to be fed 3d finished at least at full resolution..

 

so if i dont need a hdd i can then og for the 600 wich is the same With same meny as the rest of the mede8er?

 

sounds good, but since they all cost about the same, are one of them a little better than the other?

 

its just about 20usd in difference, so i wanna get the best one..

looking at the mede8er it looks like the 800 is the one i like the best, it even have wieless wich im not gonna use, but one may never know, it looks the collest, it have a internal fan and its not round and looks like a jackassplayer like the 1000.

 

the popcorn hour i belive is completely overpriced, i had a egreat m34a before i flashed With pocorn a-110 firmware and it worked good, but i paid like 100 bucks for teh m34a and the popcorn i remeber costed WAY much even if it was the same..

All depends what you like I think the a410 is only like 20$ more then the mede8er. It offers a bit more fluff but if the fluff ain't worth it stick to the cheaper one.

The a410 is at least 50% more expensive than the 800x3d (299€ vs 179€ here in Europe)

That's cheap for the pch while the med price in $ is the same converted to €. Don't know why. Pch wants to gain market shares in the US ? Or import taxes cheaper in the US ? (But the med is also imported in Europe )
