IOGEAR's portable media player, actually named Portable Media Player, may look as generic as its name on the outside, but actually has some good features on the inside (but no screen). There's the most unique one, the ability to upscale video files to 720P for display on an HDTV, but there's also XviD, DivX, MPEG1/2, and full DVD menu support as well as a bunch of audio support. With a 120GB drive on board, the $349.95 price tag doesn't seem all that steep, but there's probably little to no chance that most people will have the use of playing back 720P video on the go, on other people's screens. Maybe if you traveled a lot and wanted to watch your own movies in hotel rooms? [IOGEAR]

DISCUSSION

I can just imagine the brainstorming session for this device.

"Sir, we have finished finalizing our specs for the portable media player. We were able to put in all the specs we talked about including 720p, XviD, DivX, MPEG1/2, full DVD, 120GB hard drive, and a 4.5" screen."

"How much?"

"We project a break even at $250 a piece"

"Ssss.. Mmm Hmmm.... How much without the LCD screen?"
