Back in April I had the chance to review the Mede8er MED500X2, which is based on the Realtek 1185 chip. Today I will be taking a closer look at the Mede8er MED1000X3D. In many respects it is nearly identical to the 500X2. However, instead of the 1185 chip it is running with the 1186 chip, […]

It has been over 2 years since I reviewed the Popcorn Hour C-200 (boy how time flies), followed shortly afterwards by the Popcorn Hour A-200.
