I'm about to purchase mede8er 1000 machine but before I do any newer machines comming
Why? There are few things I still really like about my Mede8er, that keep me using it.
1. I like the way it allows me to fast forward and play audio.
2. Overtime it has proven very reliable.
3. No need for trans-coding or a server with a significant amount of CPU.
4. Output jacks that work with my old projector.
Still though, if I were to invest the money today on another media player, it would Nvidia Shield. For the price it seems more future proof.
Currently I use a Roku 3 as my media player, the mede8er is just sitting there collecting dust. But the Roku won't work if the internet is down, and I don't have a spare plex server. So there are any number if issues I can have where I would need to tell my wife to use the mede8er for a few hours. So I am definitely not ready to sell me mede8er. But at it's current price point it would be far my list of recommended players to buy.
