Syabas' Popbox Media Streamer Looks Great [Hdmediaplayers]


That freshly-popped Popbox media streamer looks as good connected to a TV as we were hoping for yesterday. Shown off at the CES Unveiled stand, the size difference between the last model was noticeable, and yup, the price is $130.

I had a quick fiddle with the remote on the stand, with the screen-hopping proving fast and the interface just as fresh as the Popcorn Hour. There are little tweaks on the interface, animations that you're not quite expecting—like in the weather—which made me quite shocked that they're only asking $130 for it.

Netflix, Facebook and Twitter are supported, and as you can see from the screengrabs over here it's laid out in a really nice, clean manner. Further driving the point home was the popcorn machine on the stand, as you can see in the last pic. Smells gooood.
