Great little device I have 2 but the only issue is the remote it's useless and worth looking for a replacement like the harmony range

TBH Billy - the early remotes were pants ..... but the later ones are not so bad .... not perfect but perfectly useable.

I have the Mk4 version of this and the remote is OK but bought one of these 6 months ago for my Dad to take on holiday and was surprised how much the remote has improved over the early Mk1 and Mk2 versions

EliTom
You can't play ISOs with this? Does anyone know the easiest way to play subtitled films and what the best file type to save them as?
playing susbtitled films is easy. i am hard of hearing and always get subs for my movies. so say i get hold of the new straight outta compton film. the file will be an MKV usually and the subtitle file an SRT file. so long as the file of the subtitle is exactly the same as the MKV file (or whatever else- avi, mp4 etc..) then this lil box will play the subtitles. do people actually still use ISO's?

I love these boxes.. i have 3 of them around the house and i bought a replacement remote off ebay recently for a fiver and it was the new gen- lots better and improved battery compartment (which is where the problems for me have arisen).

Great post
A Bit dated but Im still using mine, you will need to budget in a logitech remote as the one supplied is poo and will fail. so.. maybe its worth spending a bit more?
Spend a little more and go for the cyclone micro 4, the 2 can only read 1-2tb hdd, the new micro 4 can read 4tb partitions and the remote control is better,

woudl agree in soem ways as I have both

however teh Micro 4 is 50% at least and if used as aportable device then it is very unlikely that you will be using a 4TB HHD along side it.

Micro 4 remote is better in that it uses AAA batteries ilo button cells but so far as functionality is concerned both much of a muchness

and to use a big HHD you also need to have a seperate power supply for this device

to use USB pen drives / sd cards you can power it of a TV USB port - much more versitile IMHO

Exactly my point above

best price I can see a micro 4 is £33 delivered which is almost 75% more than this one

EliTom
however to be fair Cyclone Micro 4 does have wifi / RJ45 built in and is supposed to support miracast although I have never got that feature to work

but as a basic 1080p media player that will support any format I have thrown at it - the Micro 2+ does basically the same media player tasks as the Mk 4

EliTom
ive never ever had a file that wont work/ play yet!
Great players. Only issue I found was that they can cause a jerky picture on fast panning scenes when playing large mkv files. Small and very portable. I take one with me when I travel with work and plug it into the hotel TV.

​I got mine off ebay delivered for £24, have they gone back up in price? That's why I said pay a little more, but if it's £33 as you say is it worth it for the average user? Probably not and go for this one, I have both but prefer the micro 4

I've had one of these for a couple of years and it's been cracking. Also useful is the analogue video / audio out, I've stayed in a few hotels with older tellies without HDMI, it's been very handy. Only thing is the remote is now knackered, I see people here recommending logitech, which replacement remotes have people managed to get working with this?
good deal

replacement remotes on ebay for about £6 and these are the updated better remotes

EliTom
I remember these!

Had one (before progressing to XBMC/KODI).

Work well.

It's sort of DOS to KODI's Windows really.

Functions perfectly. But obviously lacks the visuals etc.
Great device, always have it in my holiday bag with a hard drive full of movies. Nice price too.
i have the micro 3 excellent media player and no probs with remote

TBH if you're happy spending say upwards of £5 more than OP item, I would be looking to maximize benefit by considering an Android TV box that should offer infinitely more possibilities than the Sumvision "player-only" items. I imagine that once you hit the £25 area then Android TV boxes are going to have the edge and by say just £2 more at £27 the Android box would probably win my vote every time. Random example at £27 ex-UK and that can play x265/HEVC:
ebay.co.uk/itm…987
But yes, £27 is 50% more than OP item !

would agree with you for home use .... I also have an Android box for home media streaming etc

but for travel / holiday home / hotel use these are still the best bet ..... afterall how many hotel wifis have the capacity to stream Netflix !! and these do not need a mains adapter and are much smaller than android boxes

horses for courses

and I have both

Haven't been on hols recently but don't a lot of Tv's have usb and read and playback videos or is this for older Tv's that only have HDMI,think I'm missing something a brain maybe.

many only play audio via USB or at best only certain formats - also with an RCA / scart adapter from poundland this can connect to a really old TV
