Masscool MP-1371RS Media Player Review

Television-connected media players from pretty much any company outside a Fortune 500 technology player are hit and miss some get popularized via hype and excellent marketing campaigns, while others are half-assed devices which get the job done but are beyond frustrating to use. The Masscool MP-1371RS Media Player may have a very generic name, and look like it probably falls into the half-assed category, but I assure you, it does not. ThinkComputers reviews this sleeper contender and gives it rave reviews.

Special thanks to Masscool for providing us with the MP-1371RS Media Player for review.

Billed as a “media home theatre”, this Masscool Media Player comes in a small white box which is simply teeming with every home theatre buzzword which can fit on it: “high definition”, “Supports BT download and network sharing”, “Dolby and DTS ready”, “1080P”, “HDMI”, etc. I remained skeptical as I opened the box, thinking this is just another media player which is cheap and frustrating.
