A.C. Ryan has announced new Playon!HD2 and Playon!HD Mini2 shortly after I got my Playon! HD back in November 2010! Damn!

I love the new features of the Playon!HD2 especially the upgraded wired networking to 10/100/1000Mbps because on Playon! HD, it is only 10/100Mbps and transferring files to it over LAN is taking forever! My home network is already on 10/100/1000Mbps wired with Cat6 RJ45 cables.

  • More format support: Supports BD-ISO and DVD IFO/ISO
  • Engage Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Msn, Skype
  • Gigabit Wired Networking
  • Unique User Interface: Playon! GUI2.0
  • Smart Content Management: Autofile Indexing
  • USB 3.0 Connection
  • Ez Drive Slot: Easy Hard Drive Insertion
