If you don't need networking capabilities, the AVerLife Cinema is a slick and cheap option for media file playback.
Networking capabilities are great in a media player, but they're not everything. Let's say you don't have a nice wireless network set up, or you just don't feel like attaching yet another device and configuring sharing permissions. At that point, why bother spending the extra cash on a feature you don't need?
The AVerLife Cinema is a media player that handles a plethora of popular file formats and can output video at 720p via HDMI. It handles AVI, DivX, XviD, MPEG and other video files, while it tackles MP3, OGG, WAV and M4A on the audio front.
What it doesn't do is network. There's no WiFi built in, no Ethernet port, and no way to get the AVerLife Cinema online. Of course, that's not really a bad thing if it's not a feature you need. It also keeps the price nice and low. The AVerLife Cinema can be had for $69.99.
