Popcorn Hour A400 hands on.

The future belongs to media players. We have seen some great media players such as the Apple Tv, Roku, WD and so on but none have actually wanted to make me shift from my Bluray players to them till I used the Popcorn Hour A400.

CaaptureThe A400 is the fourth generation media player from Syabas(Now Cloud Media) and is their latest and greatest(my personal opinion). Measuring at  7.2 inches wide, 6.2 inches deep and 2.2 inches high and weighs 2.86 pounds, don’t let the size fool you. This is one powerful device.

I transferred the heaviest movie I had( Life of Pi which was in excess of 45GB) and hit the play button thinking it would take a good few minutes so play but surprisingly in less than 5 seconds it did the trick. The same file when played thru Apple TV………well I just got tired of waiting.  Read more

Brief Review Lumia 925

Lumia 925Lumia 925 is the latest Windows based handset from Nokia. With specs almost identical to the Lumia 920, this feels like a slight upgrade from the previous Lumia. The biggest issue I personally had with the 920 was its size/weight and no option of expandable memory. Read more

HTC ONE(M7) Hands On

MTC One M7Enough cant be sent about this handsets. I have always liked the build quality of HTC and the ONE is definitely following the tradition of a great looking design. It is the most beautiful phone out there.

Micro 3D Projector

AAXA LED Showtime 3DProjectors, the same way as Tv’s have come a long way. They are getting smaller and smaller with higher brightness and better contract ratio. One company who are making such projectors is called AAXA Technologies. One of their latest product is a portable 720p Led projector. Now Ive actually used a few of these portable gadgets but none have impressed me so far. Due to the portability of these projectors, one of compromise that has to be made is its lumens. The best portable one so far in my personal experience has been Optoma Pico 301. With its 50 lumens it was a decent experience watching a movie on a 60” screen( Can go up to 120″) This is what one expects from such a small machine. Read more »
