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. 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.
