The Popcorn Hour C-300 has excellent video file format support and allows you to browse through your video files by poster art. But its line-up of smart apps is relatively poor, it has buggy software and it costs way too much.
Typical price: £350.00
Popcorn Hour media players never fail to win our respect. Comprehensive media playback, a comparatively simple user interface and well-built hardware make them easy to love. The A-210 doesn't move the game on much, but it's accomplished at what it does and we'd spend our own money on one in a heartbeat.
Typical price: £125.00
If you love iPlayer and you've also got a Popcorn Hour media streamer, it's your luckiest of lucky days. Prepare for the pure awesomeness of iPlayer on your Popcorn Hour.
We've awarded the Popcorn Hour C-200 the same score as the older Popcorn Hour A-110. Although the C-200 offers much more functionality, there are currently some issues that need to be fixed before it can reach its full potential. We're pretty sure, though, that the C-200 will be a superb piece of kit in a few months. Even considering the few problems it currently has, it's still the best media streamer on the market by a country mile.

It's always a delight to see a new Popcorn Hour media streamer, and we're very excited indeed by the A-210. This sleek, powerful box promises a great deal of awesome. Let's have a look.
The A-110 is a decent improvement over the original A-100, with a few useful features that will be attractive to some. The price increase is quite significant, but if you must have HDMI 1.3, DTS decode and SATA support, you'll think it worthwhile
Typical price: £185.00
This is the best media streamer we've reviewed. Videos in 1080p look crisp and detailed. It's flexible and supports virtually every codec commonly found online. You don't need a computer science degree to operate it and it won't break the bank
Typical price: £185.00
We love the Popcorn Hour and the new C-200 has the option to accept a Blu-ray drive -- a very smart piece of set-top box convergence. Here's how you plug one in
The Popcorn Hour C-200 is possibly one of the most exciting things we've ever put our sweaty hands on, in large part due to its ability to play both downloaded media and Blu-ray discs
The Popcorn Hour media streamers are among our favourite devices in the whole world. Now there's a new model and it adds Blu-ray support to an already outstanding feature set
