Probably dropped in price because the C200 will be out soon :)
The pre-order fiasco was funny this morning crashing the main popcornhour.com servers and they went offline for 3 hours, by which time most of the Americans had gone to bed !! Needless to say I got mine in, but checking the NMT forums there was still quite a few left well after the servers went back online . . . £220 inc. shipping, should be released 1st week in Sept.

Also consider the Xtreamer.

Still overpriced and underfeatured
#4
id hold off u will find a lot of this going on in next few weeks as c200 is out.

the a110 and c200 are different beasts.. if you don't need to add a blu-ray player, this is still a good model, although the A110 can be slow with some things... you can't watch a 1080p mkv file while downloading nzbs and ftp'ing to/from the disk (which you need to add btw)

..but it has played back 99% of what I've thrown at it.... and with a 1.5tb drive in it.. holds a lot of stuff...

Well I have just read all the reviews and I still don't know what this does!

LOL - yes there is a certain assumption by reviewers that the reader is au fait with the terminology eh? In summary...

[LIST]
[*]- It's a box that you plug into your telly to play pirated movies instead of playing them on a PC. I'm not sure about legally obtained content - somebody may be able to advise if it supports the mish mash of DRM technologies. quick look at the web site spec and it does look promising.
[*]- Supports high def.
[*]- Files can be stored on an internal drive (not included in the price). You do not need this internal drive to make the box work, but you may find it useful to add at some stage. The bigger the drive, the better. It supports the standard SATA 3.5" drives you'd buy for a PC.
[*]- Files can be stored on an external USB disc (also not included)
[*]- Files can be stored on a server on your home network.
[*]- It supports a huge range of encoding options, most importantly MKV H.264, which is the format used by HD movies and TV.
[*]- The user interface is OK - very much a matter of personal taste.
[*]- Very popular box. This means that there is a strong user community that will help you with questions and tips.
[*]- You can play YouTube videos directly on your telly. It would be fantastic if this would support iPlayer one day - maybe it already does (doesn't say so) - the only barrier is the DRM technology.
[*]- It does other stuff as well (like audio) - but it's really about playing video files on your telly.
[/LIST]

A mate of mine has this box and loves it. And he is an uber-geek who really does tend to push these things to their limits. The original price of this thing was well over £200 - maybe even approaching £300. The reason for the price drop, as other people have pointed out, is that they are introducing a new model. But the new model only seems to add BluRay support. IMHO BluRay is already obsolete. Why would you store individual movies on loads of loose discs? Literally a waste of space. Media storage is about redundant, multi-terabyte drives up in your loft. I'm tempted to buy this I must admit.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Geoff

Depends on your setup i can download and stream from the pc at the same time no probs there is no reason it should not work. You also do not need to FTP you can just plug the popcorn in to your pc and drag and drop much quicker, or alternatively just stream like most people do.

really want one but the wd tv is so cheaper and the new one coming out soon probably will be aswell. although this could download files for me overnight without having my laptop on :S!! decisions decisions! H+R

Isn't there a huge risk that you'll be hit with customs import tax on top of the £220 shipped price?

Purchased a A110 a couple of months ago as a present for my Sister. Will wait for a good deal on the C200 from a UK seller then may purchase one of those for myself as I'm after a Blu-Ray drive in addition to a stored HDD.

Cheekster.

The WDTV does not really compare and the new popcorn hour will be a lot more expensive and a lot bigger in size. Just depends on your needs.

Agreed. Most people already have a computer that can be used as an HTPC just as I am. Mines running Media Portal, not tried XMBC yet, I almost did yesterday but am a bit put off by the lack of plugins for it plus I was busy anyway. Got my Hauppage remote from my Win Nova USB2 DTV unit working with it nicely too.

xbmc for the xbox is fantastic! everything just works

but xbmc for the PC is a bit more hit and miss - a lot more things can go wrong or require overly complex workarounds - my laptop won't resume from standby via a usb device (remote), getting xbmc to work with my cheapo cyberlink remote took some real doing (only the number and directional buttons worked, so had to remap each command in XBMC to get it to work)

The popcorn uses about 10% of the power that my Shuttle media PC used to consume. It's smaller and near silent as well instead of the constant fan noise.
There is simply no comparison for me and my needs.
