This is a very capable media player which supports a 3.5” internal hard disk that can be installed within the player. The player has a slightly sluggish/slow user interface but works well with all the media formats. Played everything that I threw at it which my Samsung LCD wasn’t capable of. The tiny 40mm fan is a bit noisy/whiny but is easily overshadowed by the home theater’s sound. The buyer can disconnect the fan from the board and keep it aside - the unit can work very well without this fan.

For those who are interested, a few reviews of the player:

Can bundle a free 1.5m unused HDMI cable along with the player.

A friend of mine has one of these and it's really good. You should upgrade the firmware to its latest version because the interface has undergone quite a lot of changes and is now comparatively quite fast than its older firmware :)
