Western Digital Offers Up the WD TV Live Plus Media Player

HD video, NAS compatibility and Netflix streaming all in one set-top box.

The WD TV Live Plus is a nice set-top box, especially if you've got a large digital media collection. It hooks in to your network and grabs files from computers and network attached storage devices, playing them back with ease.

It also connects to plenty of online video streaming services. Netflix is on the list, as are YouTube and the Media Fly Network. If you're looking for music, you'll also have access to Pandora, and Live 365 internet radio.

And of course, you can attach all the storage you'd like via a pair of USB ports, though the Live Plus doesn't have any storage of its own.

The one real downside to the WD TV Live Plus is the cost. It's not too terribly expensive at $149, but you'll have to shell out a bit more if you want WiFi, since the adapter is sold separately.
