The HD media players with internal storage just offer an extremely good value for money package. It is basi*cally two devices in one- an HD media upscaler and an external drive to store movies on.The chunky design holds a lTB hard drive in it. Glossy black coloured finish throughout, that makes the DX a dust and scratch magnet. The front panel has 2 USB ports, while the rear panel is the business end, with the HDMI out, optical audio out, composite and component video and another USB port.
The remote isextremely interesting! The square-ish form factor and the unique key layou t are definitely like something you wouldn't have seen before. Key layout may take some time getting used to, but once you do, using it is a delight. The DX handled all video formats without any problem- avi, mkv, mp4, m2ts and even avchd. The already HD videos were smooth and the media player didn't add any artifacts. SO videos were treated well, and looked very crisp. The OX (lTB) is retailing in the market for about n3k.
while the WD Live Hub (lTB) is available for about lOk-1O.5k. Weirdly, this is more than the n2,999 box price of the DX!
While the OX performs very well, and offers a Wi-Fi adapter and an HDMI cable as a part of the package, it still doesn't justify the ~3k (approx.) price difference to the WD Live Hub. We would slightly prefer the WD Live Hub, primarily because of the lower price tag and the excellent UI on offer.
