The Bottom Line While the Seagate FreeAgent Theater has a decent interface and good photo display options, it doesn't read as many video file formats as its competitors. While it isn't infallible, the Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player plays back a wide array of audio, video, and image files on your TV without the need for a computer. Priced competitively with similar products, the M200 is a great networked media streamer for the do-it-yourself content guru. The Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link offers an easy way to watch digital video files without the need to hook up a computer to your TV. Though its lacks CompactFlash support, the SanDisk V-Mate is ultimately a slicker and more feature-rich mini digital VCR than the similarly priced Neuros Recorder 2 Plus.
