Which media player to buy ?

Hello Guys,

I know this is a very common question and there are multiple threads on this topic. However, even after spending lot of time reading on this, I am still confused.

I have a Samsung 55" and Onkyo Tx 730 with Jamo speakers. The only thing I am missing is a media player.

I have a Xiaomi MI mini but it is not able to play menu and neither 3D ISO files (they run in 2D).

I am looking for a media player which can run the below -

1. Play full BD Menu
2. Play 3D ISO file (not only SBS)
3. Play those heavy 45GB ISO prints with Menu

Budget is 100-150$.

Thanks in adnvance fellas !

There are no new players, especially at that price point that will do this. Your only option for full menus is to find a used or refurbed Dune HD, but even those aren't going for that low a price and they don't do 3D.

Looky here!

Mede8er has a player with the same chipset and does a much better job with firmware updates and support. It cost more than the KDLinks though. IMO you get what you pay for with media players. Cheap is cheap and tends to be poorly supported.

Looky here!
