Streaming services like the BBC iPlayer and LoveFilm's movie offering are starting to be built into more TVs and lounge-bound boxes, but for the hardcore media consumer there's still nothing better than a dedicated media player like the Eminent EM7080. Go...
Good Bundled with all cables, Decent remote, Strong codec support...
Bad Ugly search, Primitive UI, Buggy software...
Bottom line The video and audio support offered by the Eminent EM7080 is beyond reproach, but the software is glitchy, the web services section only half-finished and the UI is starting to look behind-the-times compared to alternatives from A.C. Ryan, Western Digital...

Eminent's hdMEDIA RT EM7080 looks like a glossy black version of the old Apple TV. On the back, it has the usual HDMI, optical S/PDIF out, composite video, component video and stereo phono outputs. There's also a USB B port for connecting it to your PC...

Dat is niet eenvoudig, want AC Ryan, ASUS, Eminent, Mede8er en Xtreamer hebben alle zeer capabele apparaten, die elkaar weinig ontlopen en allemaal wel iets bieden, wat de ander niet heeft. Wil je geen harde schijf inbouwen, dan is de keuze tussen de ASUS O!Play R1 en de AC Ryan Playon!HD Mini. Deze liggen qua prijs zeer dicht bij elkaar en ook de prestaties komen nagenoeg overeen. Toch vinden we de Playon!HD Mini nipt beter...

De Eminent EM7080 wordt standaard geleverd zonder harde schijf, maar wie een klein beetje handig is met een schroevendraaier kan zelf gemakkelijk een 3,5-inch exemplaar inbouwen. Zodra deze klus geklaard is, komen er een aantal extra functies beschikbaar...
