Before getting into what the USB Host Media Player (also known by the easy-to-remember model number UHMP-001) can do, let's take a moment to congratulate 22Moo for having one of the best names in consumer technology. Now then, this external hard drive-looking device is a media player that plays whatever you plug into it on your TV. Ideally, you'd be connecting it to a portable flash drive and/or iPod.
The media player plays back a number of popular formats including MPEG-1, MPEG-4, WMA, MP3 and JPEG slideshows. With its 4:3 aspect ratio and standard definition output, playing back on a widescreen HDTV may be a little sketchy, however. At least there's an on-screen menu to navigate all the files. For those of you not under the yoke of NTSC, be happy that it supports PAL. It's being introduced at a special price of $149, which later shoots up $50 afterwards.
