Review: Pros and Cons of PCH NMT C-200

Although Popcorn Hour’s C-200 Network Media Tank was released in September last year, its initial firmware was a little patchy. Let’s see how it performs now it’s had ample time to bed in…

Pros
Popcorn Hour devices are well known to support among the widest range of file types and feature the most impressive array of extra-curricular features
Cons
It’s not the quietest NMT on the market with a hard drive installed and the front panel LCD suffers with low contrast making it hard to read at a meaningful distance

The Popcorn Hour C-200 represents the company’s most advanced Network Media Tank (NMT) to date. For those not familiar with the relatively young company (that opened for business in 2001 as a middleware provider for the likes of Netgear, HP and D-Link before launching the Popcorn Hour consumer brand just three years ago) the biggest draw is the promise that their devices will play pretty much anything you can throw at them.
