I've been looking for something to play my media files off of my external hard drives for awhile and have decided to buy a media player. Just something cheap, simple, and dedicated for what I want. I have narrowed it down to 7 but am having a hard time choosing. (links at end)

1. Pivos XIOS DS Media Play
2 .Pivos AIOS HD Media Center
3. Micca EP350 G2
4 .Micca MPLAY-HD
5. NBOX V3
6. KDLINKS HD700 Extreme
7. Roku 2 XS

I have (3) 1TB external hdds I use for my media, could probably be condensed to 2 if I had to. Would love to hear everyone's thoughts on these and know if anyone has any experience with any of them.

Keep in mind that not every media player plays nice with popular file formats or containers. So I would make sure that whatever you selected can play what you want. For instance, I'm sure that some of my videos are in standard H.264, but my Zune would refuse it.

And you might want to look out on their software too. I have videos encoded in 10b, if you don't have the proper filters, you'll get artifacts like no tomorrow.
