Ceton Echo – Windows Media Center Extender Watch Live & Recorded TV/HDTV Access Personal Media Libraries on Any TV on Home Network, HDMI Interface, Remote Included
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works OK for TV only as a Media Center Extender
Low Power Usage

Cons: Painfully slow, like using an old original Atom based computer.
Looooooooong boot up time till live TV is available.......about 40-45 seconds from cold boot.

Very limited media type playback. No mkv, etc.

H264 playback is very choppy. This thing just doesn't have the horsepower.

No Netflix, Hulu, etc.

Sometimes acts very flaky, i.e. random freezes, random recovery mode. Frustrating.

I would have serious concerns about buying another one. In the future, I'd rather just build a cheap Baytrail NUC and at least have a Windows Media Center device that can actually do everything.

Included remote is useless.
Get a Logitech harmony series.

Other Thoughts: Waaaaaay too much money for something that only kind-of works.
This item should be $50 max for the performance you get out of it.

Will not work with Windows 8 Media Center.
