TVIX HD M-6500A Review
Sun Feb 15, 2009 · 756 words

Not much info out there on this device, especially from a Mac user's perspective, so here goes. I've used this thing for about 4 months now so this “review” might have some points that some others might miss. I usually just skip to the conclusion, so:

The Good

The Bad

The Useless

The bottom line

The M-6500A has more than it's fair share of flaws, but it does fullfill it's most important task - playing back any material in your media collection - really well. The subtitle support is solid and it doesn't make you afraid to use the fast forward button. Too bad that getting the media onto it is way too painful. You almost have to wonder if installing a hard drive is worth it, considering how much easier it is to just stream over NFS. This is a shame, because with a large enough drive, this thing could make a nice little jukebox.
