Review: Multimedia Player replacement?


It is rather small with 197x70x186mm and comes either in glossy white or glossy black. While the look is quite appealing, beware of finger prints.

The backside hosts all the connections you might need. Six USB 2.0 ports, one Gb LAN port, VGA and HDMI, optical out, 5.1 audio out and eSATA/USB 2.0 combo gives you plenty of connection options. If your monitor does not feature an HDMI input, ASRock put an HDMI to DVI converter inside the box.

Image

Looking at it as a replacement for any multimedia player we see one design flaw. The USB ports are located only on the back side. When such a box is installed, it would have been wise to put at least one USB 2.0 port and the eSATA/USB 2.0 combo port on the front, so you would have been able to plug your external hard drives in without any hassle.

Inside the box you find a 65W notebook power adapter, an additional SATA connector for a second hard drive and a remote control.
