Best media players

We round up the top media players for your TV

If you've got a shiny new TV and a Blu-ray player, but want to play back music or photo or video files from your desktop PC or notebook, a media player is the way to go. You can load up these devices with media files and easily access them, or you can connect them to your home network and stream video easily. We've put together a list of what we think are the best media players in Australia.

Topfield TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus

Topfield's TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus is a superb PVR for any TV junkie and we recommend it. Its twin HD tuners provide excellent reception and give you the ability to record up to four shows at once onto its roomy 1TB drive. We like the Web features of the unit and the ability to transfer shows to a PC, but the PVR's interface for playing MP3s and DivX files could be improved. We also hope that YouTube videos will work on the PVR again in the near future.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
