    @oceansoul: Do you own one? How much did you pay for it? How is the networking performance? Another thing that's make or break - FW updates?

    +1 for BitTorrent though. +1 also for the ability to change the video resolution while watching videos. -1 for really clunky menu/UI.

    The AL670 by Apacer is a FullHD media player based on the Realtek 1073DD HD decoding chip and since as many of you know it has been replaced with the 1283 version for quite some time now i really don't know as to why Apacer chose this course of action.


    Ok unlike the new 1283 chip the previous 1073 produces a more blurry image and although this can be fixed in part by increasing the sharpness levels it is not something i liked. Now when it comes to smoothness the AL670 managed to play every MKV/Mov/Avi/MPEG/RMVB file we threw at it but again we found that the color reproduction was not exactly on par with the new 1283 chip. Needless to say that all of the Sigma Designs solutions we have here with us now (S1/S2/A1080/Dune Max) produced better results across the board, something that potential buyers of the AL670 should take into consideration if they can afford the somewhat higher price tag of the models mentioned. However i need to report that during playback i saw no stuttering in any of the 13 files we used with the AL670 not even when the bitrate was set at 18Kbps. When it comes to sound quality well the Dune Max did exhibit more clarity that the AL670 but considering the price tag of such a device it really does not come as a surprise. Finally i also plugged in an external Plextor Blu-Ray to check whether or not the unit could also playback BD Titles but unfortunately no dice. When i first uploaded this review i forgot to mention that the AL670 needs to be placed in a well ventilated space since it gets very warm if placed somewhere with not enough breathing space around it. We tried it and found the player to freeze after a while leaving the screen black.

    A couple of reviews here and here.
