AC Ryan Playon!HD Mini 2 Full HD Network Media Streamer Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2012-02-28

The Playon!HD Mini 2 Full HD Network Media Streamer from AC Ryan has a pretty small footprint and is able to stream multimedia content (videos, photos, music) right from our network; in case we have attached to it an USB Flash Drive or external HDD, we can play back the multimedia contents locally. The device can be also connected wirelessly to the network via an accessory sold separately.
