"We have watched Zappiti’s collection of movie players evolve from full-HD to Ultra High-Definition and now to delivery of High Dynamic Range too, all the while maintaining their effortless and attractive user interface which rivals the world’s most expensive server systems, yet comes together at a fraction of their price. They can be used with internal hard drives to store and serve both movies and music, and Zappiti also has available multi-bay NAS drives to provide enormous storage capacities for media which can then be served all around the home, and which can also come with a disc drive to rip your DVDs and Blu-ray straight to storage.
For movie collectors, or for anyone wanting to clear their shelves of movie boxes and get things instantly accessible, we reckon Zappiti provides the most cost-effective high-quality solution available."
Zappiti Duo 4K HDR. Highly Recommended
"The build quality of the Duo is top notch with a metal casing that is passively cooled to avoid fan noise. (...) The processor is a bit of a monster and the networking performance of the Zappiti is excellent so we were treated to some excellent performance with video encoded at very high bitrates. (...) All in all, the Zappiti Duo 4K HDR is a cracking home media streaming solution which very nearly qualifies for the rare accolade of plug and play."

Zappiti One SE 4K HDR
At U.S. $299.00, I consider the Zappiti One HDR a good deal. It's easier to set up than a PC or Mac dedicated to video playback, and it has as much storage as you want to buy. My calculations are that my 4TB hard drive would hold more than 200 Blu-ray movies. The Zappiti can take up to a 16TB drive. If you want to try additional units to distribute video around the house, the Zappiti Mini units are U.S $250.00 and have no provision for internal drives, although you can mount external drives.
With no storage attached, they are a great way to view your collection on your main Zappiti in other rooms of your house, assuming your home network can support the speed needed.I can't think of an easier way to enjoy your videos, audio files, and movies. (...) However you use it, the Zappiti One 4K HDR media server has solid software and hardware, is being constantly updated, and the multi-room video and audio distribution features make it even more valuable.

Zappiti Mini 4K HDR - KICK ASS AWARD 4.9/5 stars.
The Zappiti Mini 4K HDR is a fantastic media player that has an exceptional build quality to it. The device comes with all of the connections that you could possibly need and is very simple to setup. The GUI is intuitive and well thought out, allowing the user to be able to access their content quickly and easily. The Zappiti Media Center clearly has had a lot of thought put into its design and is a great alternative to Kodi and Plex as it does not require as much setup and tweaking as they do. (...) There is one thing that is clear however and that is that the Zappiti Mini 4K HDR is not just another Android box. It doesn't pretend to be the same as other boxes on the market and the reason they are using the Android operating system is so that the user has more options available to them with the device. The Zappiti Mini 4K HDR is an outright killer media player, not an Android box that has poorly developed apps built in or re-skins of existing apps. (...) The Zappiti media player is intended for those that want a seriously high quality media player that is both simple to use and feature rich.
