OMFG! So, I thought I would pass this little gem on. I got a new DVD player (actually I got two of them) after a good friend bought some and loved them. Here's a link to it, below.
If I download a movie I simply throw it on a Flash Drive and woo la! I can watch it easily. I have 2 32GB flashes
so I can load those suckers up and keep the family entertained for some time. It's just so much easier than burning DVD's (which can be hit or miss with torrents).
Yes you can hook up an external usb hard drive to it, but it will only show 500 titles at a time, and well, for me a flash is easier. You can also hook it up with HDMI Cables so super easy (it does come with the standard cables). I loooove this player myself, but I highly recommend getting one as your kids DVD player since it's so cheap and plays anything you throw at it, and they'll adore you for the USB/DiVX ability, TRUST ME, I'm a mom,
Update: I've found it much easier now to use a huge external hard drive to store and organize all my downloaded / ripped movies (500GB) instead of a Flash Drive. Sooooooooo cool!
