When i first started testing and reviewing hardware media players roughly 5 year ago Plasma and LCD screens were quite simple (just taking their first steps actually) without the plethora of features one can find now even at mid-end, low cost models. Amongst those features are built in hardware media players which i was surprised to see that they are not that bad in reproducing Full HD 1080p media content with quite good image quality. Of course as always the key players/manufacturers in the industry keep introducing new features so they can make their products more appealing to consumers but we always need to remember that one of their main goals is always to reduce the cost of their products (to increase profit) and so one can never really compare one of these low cost internal hardware media players with a retail model like the XIOS DS Media Play! by Pivos which we have here with us today since the differences in specs are quite honestly somewhat vast.
