This is a very poor review for which the author should be ashamed.

The technical inaccuracies and generalisations combined with the obvious Apple bias is making me rethink visiting this site.
The reviewer puts his personal preference and incorrect beliefs 'wifi streaming of 1080p is possible' and punishes the supplier for not providing it in the player. Well he may want everyone to pay for his folly but why should they. The only 1080p stuff you can stream via wifi would be low quality pirate or Apple downloads. In other words not worth streaming. He seems to damn the player for its users and then does the same. Legal 1:1 Bluray backups cannot be streamed via wifi. Stick with your wifi delusions but dont expect everyone to pay for it.
I have a C200 and know a lot about these players, obviously a lot more than the reviewer. There is no charge for the app mentioned in the review, iplayer is coming to the C300 its with the BBC (C200/A200/A300 have it already), the comparison vs wdtv etc and price is bogus as the A300 is the WDTV comparable not the C300, etc. etc. poorly researched , poorly written, biased rubbish.

I'm normally one of the silent majority that visited to read the reviews but if they are going to continue to be of this quality/bias then I'll not bother.

I don't get this wifi view at all. It came up in the A-300 review too.

Wifi should be there full stop. Even if you don't think 1080 content is gonna work well on it, ALL OTHER content will, 720, SD, rips, and streaming off the net. Handy for upgrades too. At £340 it's ludicrous to suggest that wifi is an issue on price, it's included in some budget blu-ray players sitting at the £100 mark.

Legal 1:1 blu-rays, I mean really, who doesn't put some compression on a backup.

Oh, and saying an app is coming....if you put it out to market, have the iPlayer ready, especially when it's on your other devices.

Oh Lord!!...another reviewer that doesn't know how to setup and use a Popcorn Hour....If you don't understand the capabilities of this piece of equipment then just stay quiet.

I have one, streaming from my Synology NAS running YAMJ with Aeon Skin and it is fantastic, was it easy to set up?....No! But there is plenty of support on the forums and if you don't want to pay the money and spend some time then buy something else...however if you do and have some brain matter and are willing to spend a little time then you will not be dissapointed.

I read one review that summed these up as a "Cult" device...couldn't have said it better myself, all the others...Ssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!
