Looking for one simple device that can play your favorite HD movies, TV shows and Bugs Bunny cartoons? Look no further than Patriot Memory's Box Office all-in-one HD media player, ready for whatever digital goodness you can throw at it. Patriot was even nice enough to throw in an HDMI 1.3 (and composite) cable to get you hooked up right out of the box.
According to Patriot, the device can output HD video up to 1080p. The device can yank your digital media from a plethora of devices, ranging from a USB drive (a total of 3 ports), a network device, or by using the optional internal 2.5-inch hard drive. Want even faster access? Consumers can expand the device's storage space by throwing in a 2.5-inch SATA SSD.
Patriot's Box Office also provides additional features including Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound, UPnP support, and an optional 802.11g USB Wi-Fi adapter to access the media right from your PC.
Jack Chen, Patriot's Business Development Manager, even added that the Box Office is compatible for internet video streaming by using 3rd party software. "Patriot's Box Office brings the digital revolution to the home audience," he said.

I wonder if it plays .mkv files. That would be a nice device if it does.Reply
Don't waste your money. Either get an ION nettop, or a popcornhour. Both are way more flexible, customizable, and future proof.Reply

Yeah, this site is quite heavily doused with advertising. It's like watching 60 minutes of tv where 50 minutes are commercials and only 10 minutes of content. Pretty damn painful.Reply
