While not for everyone, the WD TV's adroit playback of video and music files makes it the perfect living room box for people with large digital media collections.
We've limited the list to standalone streaming boxes.
The FMP-X10 is Sony's second-generation 4K media player, equipped with a 1TB hard drive, access to hundreds of 4K movies and Netflix's 4K streaming service. Previously proprietary, a software update makes it usable by multiple brands of compatible 4K TV.
The Sony BDP-S3200 will play your Blu-rays just fine but it doesn't do enough to embrace streaming media like its competitors.
The new 'wire-free' Walkman sports a lighter, improved design and better waterproofing. It's set to ship in March for $99.99.
With slim 13-inch SSD laptops now well under $1,000, Sony's expensive, high-end Z series laptop is a tough sell, although the long-life slice battery and unique GPU/optical dock help make its case.
Priced competitively with similar products, the M200 is a great networked media streamer for the do-it-yourself content guru.
The Sony CDX-GT620IP is a value-for-money iPod-compatible car stereo with good usability and decent sound quality.
Kensington's gamer-centric USB Power Tip kit is a great solution for juicing up a PSP or Game Boy--we just wish it included an adapter for the DS Lite as well.
Owners of compatible Sony receivers and home theater systems will find the TDM-IP1 to be a step up from the run-of-the-mill iPod dock, but its poor video implementation and $100 price tag opens the door to a variety of compelling alternatives.
The Coby PMP-4330 made many compromises to meet its attractive price tag. Still, this PVP's built-in ability to record video is unprecedented for a wide-screen player in this price range.
