Cons nothing to complain about
Summary I was looking for an easy to use media player for my parents who are not very tech savvy. LaCinema is perfect in that respect. The setup was a breeze. The user interface is very intuitive and straightforward. The unit understands a very large number of formats, and works very well. The firmware updates are very easy to install, the only thing you have to do is to follow a notification link that appears in the interface when there's a new update. I've installed the unit at my parents several months ago & not an issue.
Pros full HD1080p media player, nice intuitive UI, optical sound output, silent operation, streaming on the network
Cons no comments
