Hooted the A.C. Ryan Playon! HD Mini 2 on Thursday at the IT Show 2011. The RRP was S$199 but CitiBank credit cards customers can get an additional S$10 off, so end up paying S$189 for it. The A.C. Ryan Playon! HD Mini 2 features USB 3.0, 10/100/1000Mbps LAN connectivity and of course the brand new GUI 2.0. It was release back in early January 2011.

This media player is going to be connected to my living room television so that my parents can watch shows without turning on the iMac in the living room. I got the mini one instead as I will be streaming media from my A.C. Ryan Playon! HD which I got back in late November 2010.

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 transfering files to it over LAN is taking forever! My home network is already on 10/100/1000Mbps wired with Cat6 RJ45 cables.

My 2nd hoot from SITEX 2010 is the A.C. Ryan Playon! HD (S$349). It comes with a 2TB Samsung harddisk (Spinpoint F4EG) and free Wireless N Dongle. The reason I chose A.C. Ryan instead of other brands is because it can play almost all formats including RM & RMVB. I know Western Digital Live TV can’t play those formats.

The A.C. Ryan Playon! HD also supports NAS functionality and hence I will be off loading all my media stuffs into it from my NAS.
