Need your advice on good tv box.
I'm in the market right now for a good tv box. I need one that supports external HDs. Need the external hd hookups for playing my downloaded movies on. Anyone have a recommendation? I found this one on Amazon:
I'm also open to other boxs.

I got the Roku 3 to stream for netflix. Netflix was already on my TV, but this roku3 device simplifies it for netflix + hundreds of channels. It was on sale for $85...regularly $100.
It is perfect if you want to ditch your Satellite or Cable TV subscription. They can get costly per month. I don't watch that many channels. On average, I watch about 10-15 channels. The direct-tv subscription gives me about 200 or so. Most of them are HD channels of their counterparts / shopping channels. Ridiculous right?
Roku 3 supports external usb for various video formats. Quote " A USB port enables local media playback (supported formats include: MP4 (H.264) & MKV (H.264) video / AAC & MP3 audio / JPG & PNG image)."
It has MKV...best ever. I should be good for watching some anime.
The roku3 is just an external box.
Why did I consider the Roku3? Besides dropping my TV subscription (My lease expires in December), The Roku3 has a faster processor which should make it smooth playing for anything to watch on the TV.
I would stay away from that Android media player as it has no reviews. It might be what you need, but it is a bigger risk.
We need to know how much you are willing to spend?
