  1. i bought my zinwell zp-500 recently and am very happy with its functions. it’s great to be able to wirelessly stream hd movies from my pc to my 48″ lcd screen. so far, it supports all the media formats that I have and haven’t run into a format where it doesn’t support yet. maybe someone can comment here.


  2. I found that it plays vob or dvd format video having non-smooth problem even update the recent firmware(v1.7). Anyone also have the same experience?
