Damian Reviews the Dune BD Prime
I have to admit that the Dune BD Prime is a very tempting media streamer/Blu-ray player, too bad the price isn’t. With big CE companies (i.e. Sony) starting to build streamer features into their decks this will be a very interesting segment in the next couple years.
There are two models currently, the Dune HD Base 3.0 and the Dune BD
Prime 3.0. The Base retails for USD 349.99 and the Prime retails for USD
449.99. The only difference between the Base and the Prime is that the
Prime comes with an internal BluRay drive, whereas the Base just comes
with an option to add an internal 3.5″ hard disk drive. Both players
come with three USB 2.0 ports (one front, two back), eSATA port,
Ethernet 100/1000(*) Mbit/s, HDMI 1.3, S/PDIF (optical and coaxial),
7.1 analog audio, 2.0 analog audio, component video, composite video.
