Western Digital's WD TV Mini is a small and versatile media player


The WD TV Mini media player will work with almost any video, music or photo file you throw at it. Minor criticisms aside, this tiny black box is the perfect companion to older televisions or those with a spare component port.

Support for a wide range of codecs and multiple file systems, attractive and responsive interface

No HDMI or 1080p playback, no H.264 or MKV file format support, photo browser can be difficult to navigate

Western Digital WD TV Mini review


As the baby in the WD TV lineup, the Mini is perhaps best connected to your SD bedroom TV, rather than to your HD living room set.

It will fit in any system and make it easy to play media from USB devices such as memory sticks and pocket drives on your TV ; Supports a wide range of file formats including AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), JPEG, GIF, TIFF, BMP,...

No HDMI output, so most suitable for use with SD TVs; also lacks networking features

Western Digital WD TV Mini review


This player is only slightly larger than a stack of three or four coasters, and the accompanying normal-sized AC adaptor looks large and bulky in comparison. In fact, your primary concern with the Western Digital WD TV Mini may be that you'll lose it...

Overall, we were extremely pleased with our Western Digital WD TV Mini experience. The player is easy to use, and with the exception of WMV, format support is superior. We recommend the unit to anyone looking for a multimedia playback travel companion.
