Aztech PlayXtreme Internet TV Hub


The PlayXtreme is small and portable but thicker than your recent disc players. It is made out from glossy white plastic but the built quality is great. There are no loose parts and everything is sealed perfectly. At the front there’s an SD/MMC card slot and two USB port. Having two USB ports is definitely a generous deal until you found out that one of its sockets is permanently used for connecting the remote transmitter. There is the usual HDMI output and A/V socket to connect to your TV while an Ethernet connection for web access. With so many wires going on, Aztech could have just offer Wifi support to lessen the clutter.

Good perormance

One of the main attractions for this device is the Android apps offered. It has popular games like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja. The remote control provided comes with a built-in motion sensor for “point-and-click” cursor control. That works well with Angry Birds using it with Fruit Ninja is a bit difficult because it can’t detect faster movements. Too bad there is no Android Market to get more apps onboard. The web browsing experience is good as there are no lags or broken Flash links. It also handles 1080p movies very well because no pixels were present while watching the movies.
