So I just received the one above. Now, there was a lot of flickering over the component connector on my TV, I'm guessing it's because my TV is extremely old (tube, curvy screen) and maybe there's a NTFS/PAL issue. Anyway, I'm going to try with the HDMI connector now, it should work.
However, this little device is brilliant. It definitely can play 1080p files off of any USB device connected to it. And it's tiny! Any file...mp4, avi, xvid, you name it. And very smooth also. $60. Amazing. All the media players offered in our country require streaming, not this guy.
