Things that it can do that I need it to:
- Steam Netflix
- Play xvid .avi files off a USB drive
It also does a slew of other things that are awesome, but those two are a must. This is a gift for a disabled person who's main hobby is tv watching. They don't have a computer to stream/transcode files from but they have access to wifi internet.
Are there other media boxes that also do those two things that I should consider? Is there something else out there that is better? One that comes with wifi built in? I'd like to keep the price around $100 if I can.
