Popcorn Hour A-300 Review

The Popcorn Hour 300 media centre series is here! Taking over from the much appreciated 200 series, it brings its lot of changes, beginning with an entirely new interface. The first through the lab is the A-300, with its new interface and surprising features.

Worthy descendant of the PCH A-210, the PCH A-300 has, it has to be said, the same stamp of quality.  The casing is still entirely in aluminium and you can only tell the A-210 and the A-300 apart by the air vents. The A-300 runs in perfect silence as there’s no fan.

Popcorn Hour A-300 Specification and overview


Pros

Excellent multimedia compatibility

Intuitive, attractive interface

Built-in video jukebox

Applications market adapted to TV usage

Advanced options / high-end remote

Cons

No memory card reader

Screws required for installation of hard drive

Conclusion

Syabas confirms its status as a serious player on the media centre market with the release of an excellent interface that greatly simplifies use of its products.  While not much more than a simple refresh on the previous model, the innovations are there and the built-in jukebox is a real added value.
