Sumvision E-Deals Cyclone Primus v2, great, reliable media box

Really quick to set up, is effective straight out of the box, i connected my 1tb external push, played avi, mp4, mpeg,and blu-ray and divx files no troubles, also performs all audio data files with no hassles, can now watch all my movies on my television, no more time will need the pill, also attempted my 2tb external drive with no complications but will not join to my 3tb travel, so to be on the secure aspect i will be setting up a 2tb sata generate, usb sticks all operate on the facet ports, just bear in mind you will need to buy an hdmi cable to link to your tv.

Terrific little media player, purchased with out hd. Simple to put in and no messing, handbook is a little missing and online details is a little bit on the very low aspect, but a strong invest in. Only a couple minor difficulties which i imagine is the norm with all media players. These are the very little concerns that would make it an excess wow. Are unable to form the documents on travel, it defaults to alphabetical, which is okay but if you have a great deal you want to kind by the date. Fast forward and rewind is a very little choppy and uncomfortable, although its likely be the media containers fault fairly than the true media player. Hd needs a minimal begin up time, occasionally i have go again in to standby mode simply because it isn’t going to recognise the hd in the menu. But i have a 2tb generate in area, which could possibly necessarily mean that greater drives just want that second for a longer time. (talking about seconds right here, just a little something to be informed of and not a gripe)fails on ssa subtitles which is important in some genres, continue to luckily not employed normally.

Comments from buyers

“Super little media player with my own fitted hard drive, Still worth of 5 stars, just some small gripes, It may suit many users, but not all!”

Had many of these around the a long time, they are great and perfectly worthy of the funds.

I purchased this merchandise to perform a selection of movies recorded in vob structure. Sad to say they will not perform effectively, there is a certain jerkiness which my earlier cyclone model didn’t put up with from. Most of my flv file enjoy perfectly, but each so generally the frame freezes for a handful of seconds, but this could be a difficulty with my individual flv files which have originated from television set downloads. The other challenge, which is not truly a dilemma that would impact all people, and that is the hdmi output does not go an lpcm sign, only the coaxial and digital passes an lpcm sign. So i am a bit dissatisfied for my unique needs, if not it is really a properly made device with a very clear interface.

Hyvä ääni ja kuva, ongelmia audio kanavien kanssa.

Just fantastic as all sumvision products and solutions i have acquired.

My second player – initial one nevertheless works but distant manage broke, not poor just after eight or so yrs. Individually consider these are the best bins on the current market and if this one preforms the exact as the very first then it truly is all fantastic.

Acquired this to replace my ageing wd mini media player. Installation simple , worked correct out of box, but consumer guide is a little bit basic, discovered far more data on net which aided. Put in 1tb sata – also simple. I have a huge range of online video information & so considerably no complications enjoying them. Only dilemma is will only copy documents instantly if generate is fat32 . But effortless to hook up to laptop and then duplicate. Distant is also alright, with excellent vary. Despatched registration card & got email response, inside three times so much so fantastic- will update.

Pretty prompt delivery and resolution of an concern with missing things.

Outstanding quickly support, very well packaged and as to some degree as expected. The only issue was that there is a lover reduce out vent on the rear of the unit , so was expecting to see a enthusiast within the unit. On the other hand on eradicating the foundation to install the hdd no supporter or power connector could be found. Presume perhaps for another very similar product. Having said that no complications with overheating as nonetheless so continue to keep fingers crossed , the hdd sits on the base of the unit with a hole of about 4cm from the pcb that is mounted in top of the device. Total so significantly incredibly happy with the unit. But no instructions to in shape or structure the hdd. Having said that not tricky just make guaranteed it is the ideal way close to. (connectors towards the moulded recess, not the base air vents, & screws provided). Over-all would seem like a excellent little media player for a person (grandparents) who desires to watch factors on the television set who isn’t going to have web or a network in their house.

    1. My second player – first one still works but remote control broke, not bad after 8 or so years. Personally think these are the best boxes on the market and if this one preforms the same as the first then it’s all good.

  4. Great little media player, bought without hd. Easy to install and no messing, manual is a little lacking and internet information is a bit on the low side, but a solid buy. Only a few minor issues which i think is the norm with all media players. These are the little issues that would make it an extra wow. Can’t sort the files on drive, it defaults to alphabetical, which is ok but if you have a lot you want to sort by the date. Fast forward and rewind is a little choppy and awkward, though its probably be the media containers fault rather than the actual media player. Hd needs a little start up time, sometimes i have go back in to standby mode because it doesn’t recognise the hd in the menu. But i have a 2tb drive in place, which might mean that larger drives just need that moment longer. (talking about seconds here, just something to be aware of and not a gripe)fails on ssa subtitles which is important in some genres, still thankfully not used often.

    1. I bought this item to play a collection of films recorded in vob format. Unfortunately they don’t play well, there is a certain jerkiness which my earlier cyclone model didn’t suffer from. Most of my flv file play well, but every so often the frame freezes for a few seconds, but this might be a problem with my particular flv files which have originated from tv downloads. The other issue, which is not really a problem that would effect everyone, and that is the hdmi output does not pass an lpcm signal, only the coaxial and digital passes an lpcm signal. So i am a bit disappointed for my particular requirements, otherwise it is quite a nicely made device with a clear interface.

    Excellent fast service, well packaged and as to some degree as expected. The only thing was that there is a fan cut out vent on the rear of the unit , so was expecting to see a fan within the unit. However on removing the base to install the hdd no fan or power connector could be seen. Assume possibly for another similar model. However no problems with overheating as yet so keep fingers crossed , the hdd sits on the bottom of the unit with a gap of about 4cm from the pcb that is mounted in top of the unit. Overall so far very happy with the unit. But no instructions to fit or format the hdd. However not difficult just make sure it is the right way around. (connectors towards the moulded recess, not the bottom air vents, & screws provided). Overall seems like a great little media player for someone (grandparents) who wants to view things on the tv who doesn’t have internet or a network in their home.

    Bought this to replace my aging wd mini media player. Installation easy , worked right out of box, but user manual is a bit basic, found more info on web which helped. Installed 1tb sata – also easy. I have a wide range of video files & so far no problems playing them. Only problem is will only copy files directly if drive is fat32 . But easy to connect to pc and then copy. Remote is also ok, with good range. Sent registration card & got email response, within 3 days so far so good- will update.
