This is one cool product. I think it is a great piece to add to home theater system since you can stream HD video to the screen from your PC running the Neodigits Software. And its both Pal and NTSC, plus works with 120/240 Volts. Its a great product overall, it has a few flaws, but nothing compared to its overall value. Where to purchase now thats the question!

  1. Sabah: this Heleos has higher specs then both of those, thats why I like it! Its complete with a full solution to a lot HD things, which I think is really cool.

  2. My issues with it:

    1. It can’t decode x.264/mkv (Sigma chip doesnt support it)
    2. It doesn’t play iso rips.
    3. It doesn’t support SMB (shared network drives).
    4. You have to use their pc software to share videos/music.
