Tuesday, 16 November 2010 ,  Written by Mike Flacy
I've always felt that Home Theater PCs have long been ignored as a viable alternative to physical media players in the home entertainment space, mostly because taking that next step into streaming or storing all your media in a central location seems very daunting to the average consumer; both from a technical and time consuming standpoint.  It's very refreshing to see the barrage of media player / HTPC hybrids that are taking the home theater by storm as of late.  Players like the Boxee, Western Digital's TV Live Hub or even the Apple TV are giving consumers new to the space an easy way to get started with playing stored media (both offsite and onsite) without moving into the serious video server arena.  Adoption and more widespread use of this technology will ultimately lead to consumers wanting more from their ...

Toshiba BDX2700 Blu-ray Player Review
It’s somewhat bittersweet to cover Toshiba’s BDX2700 Blu-ray player at this juncture, since the last of my HD-DVD discs – and my trusty Toshiba player – have just recently been excised from my home theater.  Slowly, and steadily, some personal favorite films presented on the defeated format have received high-definition treatments on its conqueror, making the switch-over more and more tolerable as I slowly nickel-and-dime my way towards a complete transition.  Toshiba themselves also had apprehension in succumbing to the trend towards Blu-ray’s ascendancy, only releasing their first player, the BDX2000, at the latter half of 2009 to mixed but ultimately optimistic impressions based on its audiovisual merits.  Since then, the demands for the mainstream Blu-ray player climate have dramatically changed, with more and more users desiring wireless access for convenience, digital file playback, and a need for the player ...
