Last night, I went to PC Fair in Ipoh and I saw this really smart device that I would love to have, if only I have the time to watch movies. This is like a video player, except that you can just hook up your external drive to it and connect it to the TV and play whatever video or movie in any format that you have collected or downloaded from the web.
I remember a long time ago, when peer-to-peer was still new, we were all so amazed with the technology of sharing videos and movies over the internet. I am sure, whether legally or illegally, all of us have downloaded movies or large video files over the net before.
I still remember how we all struggled to convert these files; convert them into files that could be read by our DVD players and burn them into disks so that everyone in the family could enjoy the movies by watching on TV and not on the small computer screen.
But that’s all history already. Last night, I saw this device which is selling at only MYR317 which saves all the trouble and time of converting and burning. I love it that it could also render subtitle files and that is wonderful since I love watching Korean dramas and must watch with subtitles!
This smart device is something that I surely will buy when I have a little more time to spare to enjoy movies on TV. I think by then, the price would have dropped a little too! Goodie!
