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.

Topfield TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus

Topfield's TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus is a superb PVR for any TV junkie and we recommend it. Its twin HD tuners provide excellent reception and give you the ability to record up to four shows at once onto its roomy 1TB drive. We like the Web features of the unit and the ability to transfer shows to a PC, but the PVR's interface for playing MP3s and DivX files could be improved. We also hope that YouTube videos will work on the PVR again in the near future.

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.
