All in all, a fantastic little unit.
It really is as simple as plug and play. I took this out of the box, and was pleasantly surprised by the size, it was about the same size as one of my hands, when i expected it to be much larger. Once i had got over this, i took it out the box and plugged it into the mains and linked it up to my TV with a HDMI cable and another optical cable going to my surround sound, and i instantly had a great picture up on my screen.
Updating the firmware is simple too, there are easy to read instructions on the website. Once it was updated with the latest firmware, i plugged both of my USB sticks in, it took a second to analyse, and it showed me all my music and films. Easy as that!
The user interface is extremely user friendly, its nice to look at and easy and responsive to work with. The remote is small but simple, with clearly labelled buttons.
If you are someone like me, and have many of your films / videos in a digital format and spend ages hooking the laptop up to the TV to get a mediocre picture, this is the unit for you. It makes life so much simpler, in so much better quality. The disc it comes with comes pre loaded with high quality photos videos and music to let you see what the player is really capable of.
My opinion, a fine little player, extremely useful and extremely easy to use. Great value for money, and well worth a buy.
