Best media players

We round up the top media players for your TV

If you've got a shiny new TV and a Blu-ray player, but want to play back music or photo or video files from your desktop PC or notebook, a media player is the way to go. You can load up these devices with media files and easily access them, or you can connect them to your home network and stream video easily. We've put together a list of what we think are the best media players in Australia.

Western Digital TV Live Hub

The WD TV Live Hub media streamer is a good unit overall, and very versatile. You can stream content to it from your computers, or you can store content on its internal hard drive and stream that to other devices. It works on both old TVs and new ones and it supports a huge range of file formats. It also lets you use some Web services (such as Facebook and Flickr) on your TV, but the apps for these services could use some refining.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
