Sumvision Cyclone Primus 2TB Media Player – Great Wee Machine

Performs perfectly though it does have a couple oddities.

Even though it is effective adequately and has performed each individual format i have so far tried using on it it is not ideal, but it is really very good for the rate. I can not get the 1 button copy function to operate at all. The delete purpose does not work both. It really is continue to quite fantastic but modifying or introducing information often demands a connection to a computer system, it wont load files specifically from an exterior push or usb adhere and so forth. It isn’t going to function nicely with my macbook. It is also a small noisy in operation with the tricky travel whizzing about fairly audibly. If i was shopping for again i would examine the possibility of purchasing a single with a sound point out drive (if there is these types of a issue) fairly than a traditional really hard generate. I would devote far more time studying reviews to see if individuals observed all the capabilities labored. All in all, not terrible but i is not going to acquire another a person of these. I would be ready to spend far more and expect superior.

Superior products with a couple niggles. To begin with it is soooo slow to copy. The evening i obtained it i started off a transfer of about 500 gigs remaining it run when i went to bed. Got up following early morning after eight hrs snooze and it still wasnt finished, took another 2hrs.Then just after all that i attempted to see if the copy purpose would get the job done when related to the television set applying the distant. Read the handbook which did demonstrate this purpose only works in fat32 structure which i assumed referred to the media you are copying from ie a usb adhere. Plugged it back in to my computer and found out it arrived formatted as ntfs out of the box. Now have to reformat and duplicate every thing yet again. Other than that superior product or service as soon as up and managing there haven’t been any challenges so significantly, would seem to enjoy every little thing i throw at it in quite superior quality.Here are the specifications for the Sumvision Cyclone Primus 2TB Media Player:

Experienced my cyclone primus v2 for about a thirty day period now & even though its bought a huge 2tb so can hold alot of stuff, it will never stay on widescreen, i push zoom to get it back again & then immediately after about a moment it jumps again to whole screen. This is truly starting up to annoy me. Anybody else have the similar factor or is it just mine?. I desire my aged wd media player which could connect to web & get firmwares downloaded on to it but unfortunatly is only 1tb so total & i am giving it to a buddy.

Does specifically as claimed by manufacturer. I’ve loaded all of my recent dvds into this black box and cleared absent dvd containers galore from my lounge. I propose use of any dvd cloner as the two perform wonderfully in partnership. Now i can enjoy movies all night with no obtaining to fiddle around altering disks. The principal use of this player is for when on vacation. All i have to have just take is the cyclone media player, an hdmi direct, and i can delight in my favourite viewing anywhere in the environment, and on cruise ships.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Cyclone Primus Media Player
  • Not as good as I thought it would be
  • Excellent for showing films through my projector.

The cyclone operates pretty perfectly. Playback is clear and judder-cost-free. It is appropriate with most of the file varieties you can throw at it. The 2tb ability is easily plenty of for very significantly anybody.

Superior media performed for storing all type of media information have bought two of these using a person for my son have hundreds of several hours of applications that he likes, and have a person for myself storing all my transferred dvd’s effortless to use performs excellent.

I utilized to have an archos tv+ which i employed to record television set and to retail outlet films on to enjoy on my tv set. Right after a tricky drive alternative on my television + the unit grew to become unstable, so i made a decision to glance in other places. Stumbled throughout the cyclone and believed i would give it a consider. Sadly it can be not as good as i imagined it would be and i was thinking about on sending it again but for the selling price of which i paid out which was just about £100 i assumed that i would continue to keep it and pray for a firmware up grade (i can not see that taking place although)no delete functionality. It provides it but you cant in fact delete anything, so you view a film and many others and then if you want to delete it you have acquired to get you’re notebook out and hook up it up to the cyclone. It states that it plays vob data files of which it does perform vob data files but each now and then (extra typically or not) you have to wait around a good couple minutes for the film to load and perform, helpful if you want to go make a cup of tea in advance of sitting down to observe that blockbuster. For value, i are unable to genuinely fault it but for watching films and many others it just doesnt match my outdated archos television+.

I have acquired 6 of these now for myself and relatives members,have had no issues up to now with them. Format to ntfs if they are not now and they are fineone of these units now has playback challenges involving ‘ghosting around the playback ‘ on all files. Will attempt re-format to try out and clear up. They engage in each structure despite the fact that i have not tried out vobs.

Acquired my cyclone primus 2tb media player nowadays, incredibly well packaged, 3min set up, have currently transferred and analyzed really a number of formats, and i am happy to say they all perform perfectly. Great piece of kit to keep all of my information in a single place.

Very good item fantastic price tag only challenge i had was deleting motion picture have to link to laptop for specific information, the instructions could be explained superior but apart from that am delighted with my acquire.

A terrific media player that puts just about every video structure onto my telly. This edition desires updating as it can be not able to link to exterior drives greater than 2tb. I am on the lookout ahead to a usb 3 model to get there, so i can related to my 4tb external travel. Ordinarily it arrives with tiny or no documentation, which triggered a slight trouble when i initially utilized it. The player requirements to be disconnected from the pc to permit movies to be performed on the television. When that was sussed, i’ve under no circumstances experienced a issue with it.

The products is nicely set together and feels like a nice bit of kit. Location up was effortless, but the booklet delivered is really light-weight. Except you might be fairly tech-savvy, it requires a whilst to determine out how you load documents and organise them. I had hoped to be capable to play my songs assortment in ‘random’ method but so significantly have not labored it out. Equally with pics – i have only succeeded in opening them one at a time somewhat than a slide exhibit. Actively playing movies is by far the simplest and i am pretty pleased with that as it is the main rationale i acquired the cyclone. Hey, sumvision, produce up a correct end users guide so prospective buyers can make the best of this package.

I have had this primus 2tb media player for just around a week and so considerably it has been fantastic. I wished to participate in a large amount of mp4 files by a projector and acquiring anything to do that has been tough. This was noisy to commence with, but now that i have put more than 1tb of files on it, it is much quieter. The photograph top quality is good and it commences up straight absent just about every time.

Great merchandise as explained quickly delivery.

This device arrive by courier on monday 5th jan. And within just thirty minutes i experienced it operating with no any guidance from the handbook, which regrettably is a squander of paper and printing ink. However the product performs pretty nicely, right after 1 gets acquainted with the remote handle capabilities, which does not choose much too extensive to understand. The playback on the device is wonderful and cost is funds nicely expended. It also has the ability to play again all of the movie formats that i have stored on my former machine and a great deal extra.

I completely confess to not remaining as clever as some of the 1 star reviewers in regard to computers, even so i have not experienced any difficulties with this unit at all, i have copied about a 100 films so much some currently being blu-ray and they all perform back high-quality i never genuinely understand the comments concerning a max of 4g as i have set a number of movies on so far that have exceeded this. In my humble watch this is a nicely produced great searching media player that does all the things it is meant to, in reality i am about to order a second device.

Just great loads simply with all my information performs practically nearly anything fantastic value for money. Easy interface whilst really fundamental it will work a take care of, arrived on time generously packed or protection.

I come across that it is seriously simple to upload motion pictures onto it. Even so only with some of the movies i find that the brightness is turned way down very low. I am not guaranteed if this is a fault from the media player or the hdmi cable i am working with for the reason that i have checked the television and the brightness is excellent on all other channels. For instance i was striving to look at the new godzilla movie and most of that film is in dark envionments in any case and the remaining struggle was genuinely challenging to look at as it was like looking at a black screen. Other than that it works truly perfectly.

When i omega screenplay high definition dx media player would not perform any media files and my sharp 70′ aquos television would not decide on up the omega i opted to order the cyclone and i am particularly satisfied. I have an imac and a windows 7 notebook so i hooked it up to the home windows laptop computer, didn’t require to structure it and copied many file styles and measurements straight on to it, without the need of any complications. I then related it to my television set, through a onkyo amp and was viewing 1080p movies in seven. The added reward is that omega connects to the cyclone, by using usb and i can accessibility all the media data files on the omega and play them as a result of the cyclone. I now have 4tb to play with, i can accessibility all the files on my omega and the cyclone is incredibly uncomplicated to established up and use. I can’t fault the cyclone at all and a great price tag. It is really performed all the documents i have lobbed at it, aside from flac, which was a bit of a disappointment.

I am amazed with this media player as generally it performs all supported information seamlessly. I would propose trying to keep mains adapter very easily get where by you can easily unplug so you can move media player to computer to erase and down load new media. The only explanation for dropplng a star from five is it does not play some formats of video which was a bit troublesome but i suppose very easily rectified by converting files on laptop to start with a very good invest in.

    I got this as a replacement for my i-omega which broke down and needed to get used to the menu first. The advantage is that it reads files in different formats,like mp4,avi etc.

    Compact media storage device, replacing a larger dvd/hd machine. Had to re-format the 1tb drive to achieve full functionality. Manufacturer’s support line was very helpful.

    1. A great media player that puts just about every video format onto my telly. This version needs updating as it’s unable to connect to external drives larger than 2tb. I’m looking forward to a usb 3 version to arrive, so i can connected to my 4tb external drive. Typically it comes with little or no documentation, which caused a slight problem when i first used it. The player needs to be disconnected from the pc to enable videos to be played on the television. Once that was sussed, i’ve never had a problem with it.

  8. I have had this primus 2tb media player for just over a week and so far it has been excellent. I wanted to play a lot of mp4 files through a projector and finding something to do that has been difficult. This was noisy to start with, but now that i have put over 1tb of files on it, it is much quieter. The picture quality is good and it starts up straight away each time.

    1. Oh my goshwhat is not to love about this profuct?when i say it is worth it’s weight in gold. It isif like me you are a film & tv junkie, storing your media on your laptop can only get you so far before you have to hava clearout. This is amazingand sooo simple and easy to use, just plug it in, drag and drop to new volume, turn it on and off again and plug and play and your ready to go,i have 2 of these and plan to get my third as all my shows seasons are returning and my first 2 are full. There are several ways to hook this device to your tv which is ypb cables your yellow, white and female insert, and hdmiyou transfere files by the small printer cable that comes with the device. Only small downside is as its for storing downloads its not always the most amazing picture as a result but that is downloads in general and not the fault of the product. Be great if they ever came up with a 3d compatible version.

    So far this has proved to be a very good product. I have loaded many films and box sets on to it and taken it on holiday. You just need to buy a good bit of software for your computer to rip the dvd’s.
