Seamless white boxes? Pfft. Brando doesn’t need any of white plastic’s pomp and circumstance. Instead, their Darwinian hard drive dock gets another upgrade. Now it’s an HD media player.
Accepting 2.5 and 3.5-inch SATA drives through a cartridge-like loading system, the $US200 player streams 1080P content (H.264, MPEG1/2/4, DIVX, XVID, TS, MKV, RM/RMVB, TP, AVI, M2TS, VOB, DAT, MPG, MPEG and MOV) through HDMI and component outputs. If hard drives and movies aren't enough, it also reads SD, SDHC, MMC and MS cards and supports e-books and music.
So what's up next for Brando's infamous hard drive dock? Let's just say that if there's no laser or disco ball involvement we'll be vastly disappointed. [Brando]
