The CinemaTube HD media player sure is tempting

HD Media Players is the rage these days and CinemaTube by Brite-View is probably the cheapest I've come across with that features Full HD playback, network streaming capability and torrent downloading.

Cinematube's slim design cannot house a hard drive unlike other media players but it has 2 usb ports at the back for you to plug your external drives. Aside from an HDMI and DVI port, it can also accept composite and component connections as well.

You can connect it to your network via Ethernet cable or buy their dedicated wireless USB adapter. In a network, you can stream videos and photos from your PC or have it act as your torrent downloader. Just make sure your have an external disk with ample space connected to CinemaTube.

It will be available in September 21 with an SRP of $130 but pre-order price will only cost you $99. Too bad there were only a hundred pre-order units in Amazon and they are all gone.

I would suggest holding back until you see some reviews about this unit especially the support they can give you. Aside from the lack of HD enclosure option, this player looks promising.
