Pros
$60 after mir
play every files
Cons
takes way to much time to browse through all the directories
Summary
i like the PBO i got it for Christmas for $60 after mir,
very inexpensive for what you get, now i am able to watch my hd movies and divx directly on the tv , but streaming 1080p movies on wifi, you get some slow down from time to time,
no problem so far for divx.
connecting the PBO with wifi was easy using wps.
overall very good product

Pros
Plays almost every format
Large Community following
Nice aluminum Case
HDD can be easily added
Cons
Terrible User interface
WiFi not included
Summary
Ok, lot's of users love the PBO, but I could not get over how lame the user interface is. Seems Patriot has stopped supplying any future firmware updates for it as well. Last one was Mar 2011. Ended up purchasing a WDTV Live Streaming which I prefer over the PBO.

Pros
Cheap
Has potential
Cons
Network connectivity is so-so at best
Terrible software
terrible support
Summary
Been struggling with this guy for awhile now.

Looks like a good idea.

Wireless networking is non-functional. The best I got it to work was for 5 mins before all networking shut off on it. I bought it for the wireless and even got the extra wireless adapter. Wired networking works .... sometimes.

The software that runs is looks like my 1980S Nintendo and in really frustrating to get around and enter info. Updates from Patriot make it look better for crash/malfunction even more.

Patriot's support is laughable, from the no-help phone to the web support they directs you to the page you are already on.

The is many 3rd party firmware option out there. This same piece equipment has been re-package by other vendors. All other firmwares work and look better than Patriots, but all fail in the same way. The network functions do not work, it crashes, or just go really slow for now good reason.

I wish the geek in my didn't spend months trying to get it working and let the return period end. I even bought a extra 320g HD and the wireless interface for it. What a waste. Never getting anything Patriot again. My advice would to re-purpose and old PC are get an old AppleTV and put XMBC on it.

Pros
-remote works well
-price was good on sale
-play videos on home network
Cons
-fan is a little noisy, but nothing major, just worth a mention
Summary
Had trouble getting this to recognize the files on my file server, but after going through all the sharing options a second time I got everything straightened out. Works great so far. Nice picture, sound is good and the remote works well.

Pros
1. Installation (other than networking - see "Cons") is pretty intuitive, although the documentation isn't bad either (except as relates to networking).
2. Super easy to run something off a USB stick or portable HDD.
Cons
Documentation is spotty as relates to networking of the device. I still can't get it to network, either wired or wirelessly, so I can't run videos off my laptop.
Summary
Decided to buy this because my TV only recognizes videos in .mpg format. So far it's performing great (except for the networking bit I mentioned earlier). Haven't tried installing an internal HDD, just been running everything through the USB so far.

Pros
great little player that can handle most media files and has the ability to even connect to the internet. MOST importantly, the price is very reasonable after rebate.
Cons
too bad we can not put in a 3.5Inch HDD rather than a 2.5 Inch HDD, where there is currently no 2.5 Inch HDD reaching anywhere near what 3.5Inch HDD has. lacking in terms of streaming from the internet, not too many functions available.
Summary
Although PBO player is one of the cheaper players out there, still this does not mean it lacks any capabilities of other expensive media players. I did notice however though playing very high bit-rate mkv files through the USB connection did cause some lag in playback and some freezes at random times. But other than these small nuisances, this player has my stamp of approval, get yourself one while it is on sale

Pros
- Got the MIR
- Very affordable.
- Play all formats that I have
Cons
- Doesn't save TV settings (1080i)
- Boring stock GUI
Summary
Nice unit but nothing special. Very similar to Asus O!Play. I does not save my TV settings for some reason. Tried many different combination but it always reset TV setting to 480i. Very Annoying.

Comment: Looking for the perfect "enthusiast" media box for your living room? The Box Office from Patriot Memory may be about as close as it gets. The only thing not included is an eye patch and a Jolly Roger.

Comment: The Patriot Box Office has the ability to play virtually every multimedia file known, stream HD, and support an internal 2.5” hard drive. Combine these features and its low price, we recommend this media player over all others.
