Astone is a new tech start-up based in Australia and truth be told, until they contacted us last month, we didn't know who they were.
They sent us over one of their Media Gear AP-100 Full HD 1080p USB and Network Media Player samples for video review. Astone is claiming this to be one of the cheapest HD media players on the market in Australia at $199 AUD (or about $167 USD at the time of writing) including an 802.11n USB wireless dongle. It supports a vast range of audio and video formats for the price and shows plenty of potential on paper.
In a lengthy video review, we fully put the HD media player unit through its paces and see if it's a hit or miss product. Watch the video below.
