The AC Ryan Playon!HD Essential media centre is aptly named because the essential is all you get here, namely multimedia playback and that's it. There's no network option, no LCD display or digital HD tuner. Just a media centre that can house a hard drive and USB/SDHC peripherals. AC Ryan has designed it for users who want to keep it simple. The casing is sober and very good quality plastic is used. There's no display on the front, just an on/off button. There's a fan to extract heat given off by the various components. The fan's hiss is quite audible, perhaps too much so for those looking for absolute silence. During film playback, this isn't a problem, but it's a bit worse when it comes to photos. You can access the hard drive mount by unscrewing the four screws under the device. You can mount 3.5-inch drives up to 2TB. The remote is small and of average quality. The battery cover slips a bit too much and the buttons are not responsive enough. You really have to press hard and this becomes annoying very quickly. The Essential is also the first AC Ryan centre using the 'Playon!GUI 2.0' (see inset).
