It's cheap to boot, at only $199.

WD seems to be low on the list when it comes to hype for streaming devices, but the company makes a slew of impressive products that just plain work. The latest is the WD TV Live Hub, and it's incredibly cool.

You won't be too surprised by its playback abilities – the Live Hub can play back a variety of video formats including AVI, MKV and MP4 as well as stream content from Netflix, YouTube, and Pandora. It's the usual stuff in terms of playing content, but where it gets really interesting is that the WD Live Hub is an NAS as well.

If you've got an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 in the house you can stream your video from the WD Live Hub to your system. If you've got an iPhone, iPad or Android phone you can do the same. It's a slick two-in-one.

The WD Live Hub comes with a full terabyte of storage space and is available now at $199.
