Great deal!

Argosy 500GB USB 2.0 3.5" HDD Media Player HV358T-00500
Argosy 500GB USB 2.0 3.5" HDD Media Player HV358T-00500

Pros: This is a super deal especially after the mail in rebate. You don't just get 500Gb of storage, but you can now easily play your movies AND also a picture slideshow for under $100! It's also portable so you can bring it over to a friends and bring the entertainment wherever you need to. This is a must buy if you download TV shows/movies via torrents, etc. It's also great as a picture slideshow. The interface for the player looks great. Easy to use. The upscaling is up to par, but of course not 100% 1080p. It still had me impressed that I can bring this around and play my movies/shows without burning a disc. GREAT REMOTE HOLDER! It also saves a ton of time as you no longer have to wait for slow DVD burners to burn, let alone find out that what you waited 10 minutes to burn be corrupt and you have to spend money on another DVD. This was the hit of my holiday shopping as everyone I got this for loved the product. I even got one myself and have been letting people know about it t

Cons: Only disappointment so far is that this model didn't come with an HDMI cable. Also when you use it as a player, when you browse into a folder it will autoplay the first item in that folder, but all you do is stop and it will open back up in the folder you want to browse in. I haven't seen the subtitles yet, but I'm sure it comes out fine.

Overall Review: Just a great buy. I'm happy I ran into this product and will be telling people about it and to get it at newegg!

Perfect product.

Argosy TV HD Media Player
Argosy TV HD Media Player

Pros: Lightweight, portable and very little knowledge needed to use. As long as you are familiar with using external HD's, love to download movies/shows/etc., this is a great buy. Great slideshow feature as well. It's also great that you can use a thumbdrive (512MB minimum) and all you do is hook it up to any TV and you're ready to be entertained. Great gift at a super price! (Instant rebates rock!)

Cons: No HDMI cable, but it comes with AV cables and component cables which do justice.

Overall Review: I got this for friends as a gift for ones I knew had an external HD already. I'd recommend the Argosy player with the included hardrive which also comes at a great price, (500Gb and Media player, $100 after mail in rebate!) for those who do not have an external HD.
