"The MC001 is one of the best purchasing decisions"
"This MC001 has been designed for general 'everyday' duties and high definition media playback, and when used in this manner it is perfectly capable."

"Connectivity is first class, with HDMI, USB 3.0, Gigabit Lan, 7:1 audio and wireless capabilities all offered by default. The inclusion of a quality BluRay player and Windows 7 operating system also mean that the end user has very little to tweak or install before it can be used."
