I have a rather strange question...
I'm planning to buy a new player for my TV. Currently I have not (yet) a full HD television, and I'm not planning to buy Blu-ray media soon (because of still too high prices :doh:).
What I need is a device provided of an USB port, so I can play movies also from an external source, like a HDD or an USB pendrive. I need this because usually when I run a test with an edited movie I burn the contents on a DVD RW, but even burning at 6x it is a PITA to burn a DVD for every test. Using an USB pendrive is much faster, and it can be rewritten a higher number of times compared to a DVD RW.
My question is: is it better to get a standalone or a media player like this one?
Even if I cannot play discs with a media player, I can watch my movies ripping them on a dedicated HDD.
I'd like to know your opinions.
