Sometimes you can get a bargain from HK and this is an example. Amazingly this tiny cheap unbranded black box is capable of playing full HD 1080p videos. Even more surprising is the fact that it will down-mix DTS soundtracks into stereo so they can be played back in stereo via an HDMI lead on a normal TV and this is something that my old Popcornhour NMT A-100 media player couldn't do.
I currently use Boxee on my Mac Mini or my Revo 3610 for viewing MKVs - so I only bought this box to test it out. I already have someone who is waiting to take this device off my hands. It's exactly what he needs - he doesn't care about network streaming and doesn't have an AV system and therefore is unable to decode DTS soundtracks. Until recently he was viewing MKV videos on his PS3 - splitting them into two halves so they would fit within the 4gb limit of the FAT file format the PS3 supports and also re-muxing the sound from DTS into AC3. Its definitely worth £34 for him to avoid all that hassle.
I ordered my media box before Christmas and turned up in January. If you want to order one of these yourself - it came from DEALEXTREME.COM and the SKU (product number) is 50567 (type this into their search box to find it yourself.
