Hi All,

Guys, I am not sure that anybody noticed that I was out from posting from quite a few days, thats coz I am in US for the past month. But recently I stumbled upon an ultimate product which has made me open thinkdigit to share this beauty with you all people. Its called [WD HD Media player] and can play all HD files in all formats through any USB HDD or Pen drive. The best part is it can also play files with MKV format, that was something we were missing. I have gone through the reviews and they are excellent. This player playes every HD file thrown to it, even images from BR/HD DVD and DVD ofcourse. Just look at the specifications...

Now for the reviews, check out [REVIEW from Videohelp]

Its an extensive discuession and would give you all a fair bit idea of what the product is. And the iceing on the cake is I got it for just 100USD here.

just 100USD --well if it played dvds too then would be totally worth it.
i think wd did it wrong. they should have also either included 500gb space or made it as a dvd player then it would seem a lot complete and a killer product just my 2 cents

No DTS also. I hope it atleasts sends out the RAW bit stream so that AVR can handle it.
NO DVD ! Means no buying this thing, despite super cool MKV and h.264

Its not a disc player guys..... its kinda media player, so obviously we wont be able to play any discs....... you can get a decent DVD player for 2500 if thats what you have in mind. This plays all images, atleast thats what he people from the videohelp reports, so you can play the ISOs and images from BD/HD DVD as well.
DTS m not sure...I will check and report.....DD is there though.
But for me playing MKV and x264 via HDMI on my LCD is uber super cool.....

People at Techenclave have already got this player long back. It's awesome. But the price being offered by KMD on TE is a bit higher to what Sam got it for. BTW Sam congo for the purchase. Does it play .rmvb & .wmv files?

^^ Its can play through all media which you can connect through a USB, even a SD card.
And guys I downloaded a sample clip full 1080p BR image on a 42" LCD thru HDMI and it played it flawlessly crisp and crystal clear. Amazing clarity......I have tested playing VOB...no issues in that, ISO played nicely. The menu is very intuitive, I will keep posting as I continue experimenting on the product......

^^ mmmm see I thought so, I got it here for 100USD, but I got know it was on discount, actual price may vary between 120-130USD. But even with 120USD it is a killer product I must say....... 100USD makes it a steal deal......

DTS is there I checked out, initially I was not sure but now its confirmed.....
I dont get what you mean when you say no DVD its a media player not a disc player. It can play VOB files and ISO as well so DVD is played in that respect.
