brite-View CinemaTube 1080p HD Media Player Video Review
We have had our fair share of next-gen HD media players come into our labs this year from the likes of ASUS, RaidSonic, Astone and Western Digital - but for the most part - they are basically all the same.
In fact, besides the Western Digital media players, all of the others we have tested use the exact same controller and interface, just with a modified menu system and maybe a unique feature here or there if you're lucky. The previous model we tested, the RaidSonic Icy Box IB-MP305A-B Network Multimedia HD Player, managed to add in streaming Internet radio support, but that was it. Still, it was something different, but not the special feature that would set it apart from the pack.
Today we get a close up look at the brite-View CinemaTube 1080p HD Media Player. On the surface we thought we might be in for a treat. What type of treat, you say? Well, something different than the usual run-of-the-mill HD media players we've been looking at this year. And by different, we mean a player with a unique controller, interface and feel. It turns out the brite-View product is (yes, again) another Realtek-based player. Yawn??!
It's not all bad, though, the folks at brite-View managed to spice things up a bit by including a bit torrent downloading application inside the device, as well as YouTube XL (or YouTube for TV), but this last feature was a little deceptively added to the box as you'll see in the video below. The CinemaTube is said to be a 3-in-1 device with a full 1080p HD media player, streamer and torrent downloader.
Watch our video below to find out if this $99.99 USD player (on pre-order) is worth the bucks! If you like it, order quickly as the price will jump up to $129.99 USD later on when it goes on sale.
