Me again. After throwing this aside for several months. I decided to try it to catch some funshion movies. The movie went into buffering very often. I thought my wireless was slow so I tried catching the movie on my laptop on wireless. The movie played smoothly. I am beginning to suspect the 512MB RAM could be just too small. It was the same when playing youtube HD. It went into buffering very often. Again, tested it with my laptop. Everything played smoothly.

Bought this at Sitex 2012. This one cannot make it took it back to the retailer got a full refund.

Original one was not performing took it back got it replaced 1 on 1 the second one was even worse. AZTECH is good for some of this stuff but this product is a total failure.

Me too, bought at Comex 2012 and regret 100%. Should have paid $20 more to get AC Ryan Veolo. Very cheapskate product and very very lousy remote that always got hand, arrow went missing and keys got stuck. Very lousy quality. I would not recommend getting this.

Just bought this at Comex 2012. Less than satisfactory experience. Screen freezes a few times. Before you buy this, try surfing using the installed browser. Totally frustrating.
