Of these, the Dune players have the best ratio of ease of use, reliability and operational speed.
I originally bought the D1, which I love for playing ordinary DVD and Blu Ray rips (MKV and ISO) - and is probably the best media player I own overall (it has better support for Blu Ray ISO files) - but I wanted a player which supports 3D formats so I could stream 3D movies to my 3D Epson projector.
One thing to note about the Dune HD Base 3D is that despite the published specs, it *does* support Blu Ray ISO files - it just doesn't support full menu rendition. You get a list of tracks on the disc and you just need to select the one you want to play. If all you want to do is rip a 3D Bly Ray to an ISO file using something like DVDFab, you will be able to play it in 3D over HDMI (or Wireless HD on the Epson EH-TW6100W) using the Dune HD Base 3D (assuming you're running current firmware).
Unfortunately it doesn't support 3D photos (e.g. MPO) but not many players do. If it had done, I'd have given it a full 5 stars, because it would save me all the hassle of converting my 3D photos to 3D Blu Ray movies. I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum to do that. At least now I don't need to bother writing them to Blu Ray discs.
The controller is a nice size and perfectly functional, it has all the connectivity you'd expect of a high spec media player, and it has a built in quick-release hard drive slot if you prefer to store your content on-board (personally I don't bother).
If you want to stop messing around with Blu Ray discs, this is the player for you.
Not perfect (no current media player is) but getting there.
Regrettably, my USB 3.0 3TB drives could not be read - which was a setback. So opted to use 2 x 2TB externals instead and a 2TB internal HDD. The slight noise from the internal fan was irritating when the internal HDD was used but only on quiet movie passages [and perhaps I am a little too sensitive to extraneous noise anyway!] But the big failures, in my opinion, were:
a] the juddering playback on many of my movies. This apparently needed a firmware fix from Dune to rectify and according to members of the forum had been resolved in a 'Zappiti' badged version of the player, but not in this 'flagship' model from Dune. The last firmware update was some 8 months ago;
b] many of my films will not play properly because the 'wrong type' of codec had been used. All my films play perfectly well through other hardware eg [my Oppo BluRay player] and having returned the Dune and purchased a Mede8er equivalent I find that all my sources now play perfectly.
c] playback of TrueHD and DTS-MA were rather hit and miss affairs. Some played, others displayed 'this player cannot playback this type of movie] very annoying when you've just settled down to watch something specific. It all rather leads to: what am I doing wrong? type questions.
So in summary, it was frustrating that the Dune didn't fully deliver for me. When it did play my films faultlessly it was great and the Zappiti software to create a jukebox wall was rather good.Read more ›
First thing to cover, what exactly does this box do? I've only had it for just over a week so far but what this does do is allow me to plug in USB sticks or smart cards loaded with movies and play them through my TV in it's most basic form but that's just the tip of the iceberg.
As well as the USB and smart card readers you also have a front bay where you can simply plug in a Hard Drive such as those found in any PC. Plugging it in is ridiculously simple, there's no wires or connections you just open the cover and push it in just as you would with a VHS or DVD so you can then load the HD up with movies which are available at the touch of a button.
If you have a movie collection on your PC then that's not a problem, just connect the Dune player to your wifi and you can stream directly from the PC to the Dune and the same can also be done if you have a NAS server. I've had no juddering or buffering issues doing this in full 1080P HD but i've not tried streaming a 3D movie yet
So far it has played every format of file i've thrown at it with no codec issues(avi, mkv, mp4, etc)but I haven't tried some of the more obscure ones.
The unit itself is a sleek but basic looking black box the size of your common or garden DVD player. It has the aforementioned HDD bay on the fornt behind a pop up panel along with a USB and smart card dock and eject, skip, play, stop buttons.
Round the back are you've got an ethernet port, 2 mores USB docks as well as an HDMI and some component and composite docks and you get a rather comprehensive remote thrown in.Read more ›
