I finally unboxed this media player from Noontec that has been on the shelf for a couple of weeks ago. Noontec called this as MovieDock A6 II NAS Media Station — basically a type of high-definition audio and video player that you can also hook into a local network as a full NAS (Network Attached Storage), hence the name. I’m honestly new to Noontec’s line of media players (I also have here the N5 and V8) but will try my best to get familiarized with such products so I can give you a detailed review of each. And to get started, I’ve been playing around with this MovieDock A6 II first and will have the full review of the other models in the next few days.
As I’ve said earlier, Noontec MovieDock A6 II NAS Media Station is a high-definition media player capable of playing a variety of popular audio and video formats. Though I haven’t tried playing all types of formats supported, the user manual says it can play HD formats like RMVB (.rmvb) from RealNetworks, Blu-ray movies, H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC, and TS/TP stream HD video files. The A6 II doesn’t have a built-in HDD, but it has several interfaces for portable storage like USB port for Flash drives and U-Disk and SATA port for mobile hard drive. (more…)
