Sitting right next to your big computer, or your big screen HDTV, you'll probably already find some ridiculously small gadget. After all, even our memory is getting smaller. And while there may already be options out there for you to purchase in the whole HD media player market, this new one from Amex Digital definitely aches to take the "smallest" title. Its measurements are noteworthy in of themselves, but the features speak for themselves, just as loudly.
The MP-501 measures in at a minimal 175- x 128- x 15mm, and if you were to hold it in your hand, you probably wouldn't even noticed its negligible 250 gram weigh-in. You can connect the MP-501 to a USB-connected device, which can then stream a plethora of video formats. But, if you're more interested in the HD side of things, then you'll be excited to know that it can output up to 1080p HD, thanks to an HDMI cable.
There's even a mini-USB port on the back-side. So if you're watching all those HD videos, you'd want to make sure that your media player can handle it. The MP-501 has an ARM Cortex A8 processor tucked away inside, And thankfully, it can play pretty much any file format available, as long as you don't have any of that pesky Digital Rights Management (DRM) going on. Price wise, you'll be looking at only $49, so that's not bad at all.
