If you're planning on playing digital media, streaming content from the web or listening to internet radio you've got the choice of dozens of devices that all do similar things.  You'll have to make sure each one supports the files you want and the media channels you plan on using, or you could just get a home theater PC.

The latest from Zotac is a Zbox with a Blu-ray drive built right in.  It's not unheard of to have a Blu-ray drive in an HTPC, but the Zbox comes in smaller than many Blu-ray players and with far greater functionality.  "The ZOTAC ZBOX Blu-ray series is the ultimate multimedia hub for all your entertainment needs and replaces the function of multiple electronics devices," explains marketing director Carsten Berger.  "[it's] more than just a system for playing games and watching movies."

In addition to the Blu-ray drive, the Zbox features a pair of USB 3.0 ports, built in WiFi capabilities and room for expansion to a bigger hard drive and more RAM.
