I would like to thank CaseKing.de for supplying the review sample.
CaseKing is one of the few companies out there, which will not just sell anything. They only offer hardware that performs well and is of high quality. The shop carries quite a few exclusive parts and devices from all around the world and it is also the official distributor for a long list of well known manufacturers. Their assortment has grown substantially in recent years, while great service and support is still a very important part of the shop philosophy. The website may be in German, but due to great demand an English version is also available.
We will be taking a closer look at the A.C. Ryan PlayOn! DVR TV. This is a multimedia hard drive enclosure, which comes equipped with multiple networking interfaces, traditional USB 2.0 connectivity and a HDMI out, so that you can display 720P video on your LCD or Plasma TV easily. You can also use the it as a DVR to record both analog and digital (DVB-T) signals unto the hard drive. A.C.Ryan offers the PlayOn! DVR in three versions. One without a TV tuner, but with the capability to play back media with up to 720P, then the one we are showing you today with a tuner build-in and a high-end version with HDMI 1.3 and FullHD playback - called the PlayOn! HD.
