 media player with excellent video quality output, the forward and rewind media playback performs very well, convenient remote control

 too expensive, compared to the existing flaws: firmware updates may freeze the player; video library cover-art match is not always accurate; setup with Synology DiskStation DS213+ initially failed, no support of AAC protected audiofile, weak AirPlay support, limited customisation of menu’s; local drive wake-up is slow.
