Video Picture Quality
To properly test the Picture Quality that the All-in-Wonder HD Premium 5000 can produce using a video file, I decided to play three different movies and compare how the quality looked in two different multimedia applications - the TotalMedia Player from ArcSoft that came with the bundle and Windows Media Player, which came installed with Windows 7. The three different movies that I played were Due Date, Megamind, and Resident Evil: Afterlife. I took screen shots at the same time in each movie, in each of the players. As you can see below, Windows Media Player was able to produce a little bit brighter of an image that is also a little bit more clear. In addition, the CPU and Memory usage (measured in Windows Task Manager) were higher using the ArcSoft TotalMedia player.

TV Picture Quality
There is really only one way to test the TV picture quality and this would be to view a few different TV stations using the computer, then seeing what they look like on your regular TV. After I hooked up the coax cable to the computer, I was able to search through and grab different TV channels that I could then watch on my computer screen just as it is advertised to do. When I was displaying the TV channels through TotalMedia 3.5, I was only seeing about a 2% CPU usage for the application with about 145616K of memory usage. This is just a little bit more stress on the CPU than watching a video file, but is just over half the amount of memory usage. The picture that I was able to get was quite well, which was surprising.
