Forget the no-name brand of this Patriot media streamer. For a cheap cheap $US130, this 1080p box is worth a quick look, so long as you can stomach the equally cheap UI.
The kit includes a remote, 2.5-inch space for a you-provided HDD, three USB slots, Ethernet, and support for more than a few file formats. It launches, well, soon, as there's no date and it's currently in pre-order. [Amazon via The Gadget Site via Engadget]
