AC Ryan PlayOn!HD Mini 2 review

 

The Mini 2 is an update to the PlayOn!HD Mini and has a new remote control and interface. As well as HDMI, component and composite video interfaces, it has stereo phono and optical S/PDIF audio outputs, two USB ports, and a fast Gigabit Ethernet port.

Excellent file support and a low price, but the interface is clumsy and slow and the streamer doesn't support many internet services

To date, I haven't found what I'd consider to be a "perfect" set-top media player, and nor does the Playon!HD Mini 2 fill that void. That doesn't mean that it's not fantastic, though, and in fact, it is. So much so, that it's without question the best...
