Western Digital WD TV Mini
26 January 2010
Excerpt: Western Digital is already very popular, thanks to their super cool WD TV HDD based media player. It’s hard to be cynical about this concept, one in which you can play DivX, MP3s, VOBs and a lot more files directly off your HDD. This time they have come out with something smaller and more portable, known as the WD TV Mini. It is still an HDD fed media player, only much more compact.
Excerpt: As the baby in the WD TV lineup, the Mini is perhaps best connected to your SD bedroom TV, rather than to your HD living room set. Measuring just 21x91x91mm, it features all the basics with none of the frills.

Measuring just 21x91x91mm, it features all the basics with none of the frills. Crucially, it doesn’t have an HDMI output, and will output only DVD quality (576i) via the AV output, although it will upscale to 1080i via component. Playback is just as smooth and glitch-free as the other models in the line.

Excerpt: If you're looking for a way to display multimedia content on a hotel TV, you won't find anything easier to use, more portable, or more capable in a 720p output unit than the Western Digital WD TV Mini .
