On this page we will look at the various playback options available from the Eminent HD EM7195 player.
Playback from the Eminent EM7195 is smooth and we experienced no issues during any of our testing. Videos from online websites and services all played without a hitch. One of the upsides of the rather plain user interface is that each section would open very quickly without stalling.
YouTube videos, as we hoped, all played back without problems and the interface is very quick to navigate.
Above, we are using the player to access one of our networked hard drives to play a BluRay movie stored in a ‘folder’ format on a hard drive. You can see that playback is super smooth even when streaming native 1080p content.
Below we have included a video of a 1.4GB MKV HD file which we are transfering to the internal hard drive across a network powered by several Belkin 16 port 1GBit switches. This Eminent player isn’t gigabit enabled however it seems no slower than the AC Ryan Playon! HD2 we reviewed last week.
While streaming content was very impressive, copying content was no better than the AC Ryan Playon! HD2 player. It is significantly slower than a gigabit enabled PC on the same network.
USB 3.0 performance is very impressive, averaging 123 MB/s.
