Nano 3.0 HD TV Digital mini media player,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VonHaus Nano 3.0 Media Player- HD TV Digital Mini Media Player - 1080p - MKV - Play any file from USB HDDs/Flashdrives/Memory Cards (Personal Computers)
When I ordered this - it was in the knowledge that the recipient was in a rural deadspot and that apple tv etc was not an option. The previous reviewers had all guessed how good this item was - I must assume no-one had bought it? - as the item is actually VERY good. Don't be fooled by people that say it plays everything. It doesn't - for example my i-tunes music won't play (and this is non-DRM protected) - it just doesn't like m4a files. Also - be aware that the USB input must be from FAT 32 - IT WON'T ACCEPT hfs+ (ie formatted for apple ).
So why have I given this 5 stars?
Because it is simply a great bit of kit that works with a few exceptions. It picks up the movies in almost any kind of format and plays them no fuss. It isn't an up-scalar - as it gives the user the ability to choose 720p, 1080p, 10809i and other video settings. The audio is very good, and when I put ordinary MP3 music files on the usb drive they played crisply through my tv and external array speakers.
BUT the most amazing thing is the size. It is literally the size of a credit card and no matter what I do to it it doesn't get even remotely warm.
For a no wi-fi environment such as rural dead spots - it gives an alternative to streaming video etc. I have it attached to a 2tb HDD full of movies, tv shows and music and it is superb.
Would I buy another - you bet!
