Patriot Offers Cheap 1080p Media Streaming In a BoxS

Forget the obscure brand of this Patriot media streamer. For a cheap cheap $130, this 1080p box is worth a quick look, so long as you can stomach the equally cheap UI.

The kit includes a remote, 2.5-in space for a you-provided HDD, three USB slots, Ethernet, and support for more than a few file formats. It launches, well, soon, as there's no date and it's currently in pre-order. [Amazon via The Gadget Site via Engadget]
