Great UI: I've been a big fan of AC Ryan's UI since the PlayOn! Media player days, but they kick it up a notch or three with the Veolo 4K thanks to it running Google Android underneath.
An Even Better Remote: The remote control is one of the central parts of the media player experience, with AC Ryan providing an excellent, but simple and feature-packed remote control with the Veolo 4K media player.
Android OS: Another great touch from AC Ryan, is powering its 4K media player with Android. This provides a great foundation to the OS itself, as well as the ability to add in apps to add virtually unlimited functionality to the Veolo 4K media player over time.
Super Small Footprint: Even with its 4K capabilities, the Veolo 4K is smaller than all of the other media players I have throughout my house. There's some great hardware inside of it, so think of it as a much more versatile and feature packed Android-powered smartphone or tablet without the screen.
Quality Through & Through: From the box, contents, and down to the finish of the Veolo 4K media player itself, AC Ryan have put the bells and whistles into this device.
Lack of 4K Content: This isn't a problem with AC Ryan at all, but it's something you'll need to make yourself aware of. There's not much 4K content out there, but if you have a camera that shoots 4K content, then this is the perfect playback device.
AC Ryan has done it again. They've made an excellent media player for the next-gen of content consumers that want a 4K-capable media player. It's kind of future proofing when purchasing the Veolo 4K media player, as you'll have a device that is capable of playing back 4K content, but is absolutely capable of playing back virtually every other media format and resolution, as well as 4K.
The Veolo 4K media player is small enough that you could pack it into your bag and take it with you on the plane, so that when you get to the hotel, you have a device that you could plug an external HDD into, and enjoy all of your episodes and movies. Most media players are quite bulky, but the Veolo 4K is nice and thin, which makes the portability aspect something that is actually viable.
The remote control is excellent, and one of the big selling points of the Veolo 4K experience. It's super simple to use, super light, and low on buttons. There's no need to have 35 million buttons spread out across a remote control, and AC Ryan know this.
Finishing with the UI, which is splashed on top of Android meaning you can have countless applications powering your Veolo 4K media player. From alternative media players like SPBC, to YouTube, the options are really limitless with the Veolo 4K media player. The price (around $199) is also really quite reasonable for what you get with this device.
