A new player in town, how does this compare to the well established Patriot Box Office 1080p High-Definition Media Player PCMPBO25 (Black) which costs almost half the price (after the rebate) and the similarly priced Western Digital WD TV Live Plus 1080p HD Media Player. Is it a flawlessly made product ? is it a the holy grail of media player ? if you currently own a PBO is it worthy the upgrade ? if you are about to purchase WDTV Live+ is it worthy to reconsider ? Read on and judge for yourself ...

Packaging:
Nicely double backed, high end looking design with flashing logos thrown on every side of the box.

Unboxing:
How much would a 3' HDMI cable add to the cost of this box ? around the same price of any of the included cables ;)
Manual is exceptionally well written for this class of devices.
There is a quick installation guide too, which *interestingly* claims a USB webcam support !! :-0

The Device:
Nice metal casing, not flashy and would easily fit within a typical home theater setup.
LCD screen ? such a disappointingly tiny display especially with such an empty front (which contains nothing beside the power button). You could easily fit a 2/3 lines display on the front of this player.
The box is considerably big (due to the supported 3.5" HDD), see pictures for how it compares to a PBO and a standard slime external drive.

Remote control:
This is most thing I hate about this box.

I tried quite a few media players for NAS and DLNA. Nothing quite compared to WDTV HD Live in simplicity and easy of use. Unfortunately WDTV is a mess when it comes to vendor firmware - the only way to enjoy it is to update to alternative WDLXTV firmware. FW v.1.03.49 is the only one that works reliably, so for that very reason do not go higher with WDLXTV FW.

Enough about WDTV, AIOS is working flawlessly for me after firmware update to v.2.8.0.5. Tested with full BR rips with TrueHD and DTS-HD[MA] (leave default DTS-HD = 7.1) - works, no lip sync issues. 1080/24p works. The vendor is actively supporting the product. I like GUI simplicity, direct access to Audio, Subtitles, Zoom, GoTo (my favorite one), list mode navigation and etc. Unit offers rich functionality for very reasonably price point. I will continue to test it and post any findings later on. Overall the unit is a A+ rated job, cudos to folks who designed it.

My main goal in getting a new media player is to be able to play my HD movie collection via ISO format and play audio through my surround sound home theater system. I own a first generation Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player and was pleased how it was able to play most video, music and picture formats. However it was no longer able to decode some of the newer DTS and Dolby Digital audio codecs. I'm familiar with some of the XBMC-based systems out there but didn't really want to spend the money (or time) buying and configuring a full-blown HTPC system. This AIOS HD Media Center, Full HD 1080p, Gigabit Network, USB 3.0 data, Flash Reader, 3.5" SATA 2 system seemed interesting to me in that it has USB 3.0 support, an internal SATA drive bay, digital audio coaxial output (good for audiophiles), SD card slot and network capabilities - things I didn't have with the original WDTV. I purchased, received and installed the AIOS after reading all the positive reviews. After encounter video and audio problems on the AIOS, I also decided to get a NETGEAR NeoTV 550 NTV550 Ultimate HD Media Player for comparison. Here is what I have discovered so far between the two products:

AIOS vs NeoTV COMPARISON:
* AIOS is slightly less expensive than NeoTV. Advantage: AIOS
* NeoTV has an eSata port while the AIOS doesn't. Advantage: NeoTV
* AIOS has a coaxial output while the NeoTV doesn't. Advantage: AIOS
* NeoTV has a more sophisticated UI than AIOS.

For about a week now I've been messing around with my new Pivos AIOS player, installing different firmwares (the latest versions of the official, semi-official, and XtrAIOS), and customizing the player to my liking. I've explored the strengths and weaknesses of each firmware and settled on the semi-official R18 firmware. I do understand the positive and negative reviews, why some users enjoy the player, while other hated it. Let me start with the bad.

BAD:
1) Although the player is operational out of the box, the factory installed firmware needs to be reflashed to the latest one to improve the performance and GUI appearance. This update is essential as bugs get fixed and the hideous orange menu system is replaced by other options.

2) Setting up and modifying the AIOS past the basics is a pain. The most simple set up changes can be done through the settings menu, but other more sophisticated customization, like bookmarking and setting up the jukebox, are a real pain and require software, skills, and knowledge not typically familiar to the average user. Hence, a steep learning curve applies.

3) The button layout on the remote control is very odd. For example the mute button is at the top of the remote, while the volume buttons are in the middle. The play/pause button is small, near the bottom of the remote, and not easily accessible by the thumb. There is no MENU button, and to get to the menu of a DVD, one needs to press the OPTIONS button and make the selection to access the DVD menu from there. That's an unnecessary extra step. Other important buttons are also scattered around the remote following limited logic. (I'm surprised the numbered buttons are in order.
