Yet another one I found when I read about it on mpcclub. coms forum:

X5 product page:
http://www.measy.com.cn/product/showproduct41_en.htm


I love the case design. Better than the Iconbit XDS1003D.

Very simular specs to the XDS1003D, but no english forum or firmware details. I sent my usual questions directly to Tech support email addy.

I googled and found an etailer stating Nov. 27th Sale $169.99 here: http://www.w2comp.com/detail.asp?cat...571700&private


Upfront, I'll tell you, it uses Simple BD menu 1.0.

I've got a feeling theres going to be a flood of Realtek 1186 media players coming out. Oh, and so you know, the Realtek RTD1186 is the 6th gen from the RTD1185, but that the 1186 has full 3D Bluray support and the SDK 4.5 New Casablanca GUI.

Has anyone tried this media player? Any more information? Looks like a very promising player from what I can read / see on their website.

All these 1186-based players seem to have similar issues with 3D playback, namely correct playlist (fixed now in HiMedia's HD900B), no forced subs in ISO or MKV, none of the PGS subs working at all in 'Avatar', etc.

The manufacturer doesn't have an eta on fixing this? I don't really care about 3D at the moment, but in a couple of years when my son stops being the destructive Bumble-Bee transformer he thinks he is, I will be ready for 3D...may be the technology will be better and 3D glasses will be gone.

No. We flag issues and others in other forums do as well. Then, keep fingers crossed and hope some (and if we're lucky most) get resolved over coming months.


In a couple of years, there will be many more choices, including Sigma's entry into 3D.

Brajesh, flaging in forums the issues and no direct communications with the firmware developers is what concerns me. There are about 5 other Realtek 1186 media players that I have not listed. I have not even heard from my emails from Measy nor from one other. The lack of communication tells me some things. Lets all use the same soc RTD1186, and all pump out similar chinese design hardware cases and then move on with very little fixes for our customer and take the quick sale and make something else. With the way media players are made and their firmware, they need the consumers to help better them. I don't have a disposable income!

Luckily, I have 3D at work to keep me busy.

Agreed. Here, we've been relying to Leo (HiMedia's U.S. reseller) to get our requests to HiMedia. I did get a direct e-mail for HiMedia support, but they asked me to send them ISO's for 'Avatar' and other BD's I had issues with. How the heck would I send those to them in China?! And, even if I could, I wouldn't for legal reasons. So, I'm hoping enough users making the same fix requests via different forums will encourage them to address all the big issues.


The HiMedia HD900B is the first Realtek-based player I've owned. In the past, I've stuck to Sigma-based players as I heard better things about them in these forums compared to Realtek.


In terms of 3D, the Xtreamer Prodigy was the first player I considered. After multiple delays, I gave up and ordered the HD900B. Good thing I did as 3D playback seems worse on the Prodigy based on reading their forum. So far, on HD900B, it's been decent, but there remain some critical issues (forced subs not showing, 'Avatar' subs for Na'vi parts not showing, etc.), but they did fix the playlist issue by letting BD-lite support 3D so we could choose the correct 3D playlist in movies like 'Toy Story 3', 'Cars 2', etc. But SBS & top/bottom 3D MKV's don't appear to work, and some BD's like 'Rio' have 3D proper sync issues.


I don't know, sometimes I feel like saying the heck with it & buying the Oppo BDP-93. It supports full BD menus and plays 3D ISO's perfectly. Of course, it's $300 more too. Then I think, maybe wait a little longer for HiMedia to fix those lingering issues on the HD900B.

Brajesh, the Oppo BDP-93 will only play 3D Blu-ray ISO's from a connected USB HDD. (I know you know this), but if it only would work via NFS streaming ISOs. I read over at: http://www.hifivision.com/media-stre...-streamer.html



that a user with the HiMedia placed the GIEC 2nd place.

Wow, I can't believe how many different media players are coming out from china. It would be nice if we had something similar in the USA rather than dealing overseas.


That's the main reason why I bought the A-300 since their office is 2.5 hours away from my residence. My wife ordered it for my xmas present. So, if something goes wrong with it, I will drive to their office and get my $$$ back

Yes, a USA reseller and a USA presence with s/w dev communication forum with the users would be great. With so many media players, I would think one of them would be smart enough to get into the USA market and sell really well if they worked with the consumers better.

Agree 100%. That's another reason why I bought the A-300. Whenever I called Popcorn Hour, they always had an answer, with the exception of one question. Tech. support is suppose to call me tomorrow to let me know the answer since the sales rep. I was talking to wasn't sure.

Well I have not heard back from the company. With these types of communications and these mass produced Chinese products, just to mass sell and to never hear from the manufacturer and firmware dev team makes a no purchase for me.

Yeah, I suspect some manufacturers are using simular motherboards and simular firmwares, but each are making thier own cases. So, since you have one, care to do an indepth review? Does it have the same issues as the Himedia 900b? Added to my list of Realtek 1186 3D media players

As I know X5, HD900B, Kaiboer 660i, Zero Devices Z200, Egreat R300, etc. ALL of them mount same motherboard. So the differene is on the case, built-in or not wifi and fan.

Can you give us your impressions with the Measy so far?

Hi,

I'm looking at getting the measy x5 but have questions please I'd like some answer if possible.


I want wireless option to extend wireless down stairs from upper floor wireless router. Will this unit offer that via the included wifi dongle? Or am I on the wrong track? For extending the range to my tablet or other wireless products?


I'm comparing this unit to the following.


Egreat r300

Himedia hd900b

Blu times

Datage hdpro-x6

Datage hdpro-i6


All have Realtek 1286 chipset. All do pretty much same from what I can see. Some don't have antennas and wifi.


What can everyone recommend???


Also believe product support to be essential in terms of email and firmware updates.


Thanks in advance

Whether there are here users of the X5? There was an information that the model-clone of this player (I will not name yet concrete model) has no such problem . Someone can confirm or deny this fact? It is very important to clarify the situation for RTD1186 based players.
