Pros: Plays all the file formats that I throw in including iso files with menu. Detects internal hard drive every time without a problem. Has the most USB ports in compare with other media player.
Cons: Freezes sometimes when pressing buttons on remote control too fast. Yellow background causing difficulties in reading the screen. (This bothers me the most. I almost return the player bacause of this). Streaming on wireless is not good enough (hesitation/freezing from time to time). Poor instructions: I have not figured out how to use the HTML5 browser as well as all features related to the internet.
Other Thoughts: This is my first review ever (I've never written a review before). I wrote this review because several other reviewers complained that their internal hard drives, in many cases, were not detected. (I had a similar problem on another media player of a different brand before. After doing what I describe below, the problem was fixed). I want to share what I did and hope it may help.
In my case here, I use a 1.5TB hard drive with a couple hundreds avi, mkv, vob and iso files with menu on it, and everything works fine so far. Below is what I did:
1. Use the Pivos player to format the internal hard drive (i.e. do not use Windows to format it). Then copy files to the internal hard drive through the USB3 connection.
2. Be patient when power up the player: after selecting "File Manager", wait until HDD appears on the menu before pressing any button.
It works for me. Good luck.
Now, for the rating: If I could figure out how to use the HTML5 browser and the internet, I would give it a 5 stars. For now, it's a 4-star player because it plays all the files I have on an internal hard drive. In addition, it plays all the files on a 2TB external hard drive plugged in an USB port. Besides, it has lots of features at an excellent price.
