Patriot Box Office Media Player Review

Introduction

As music, movies, and television have moved to the digital world, media players that can bridge the gap between a digital library and a home theatre have become all the rage. We have known Patriot as a memory company, so we were intrigued to find that they were branching out into digital media players. Could this be the simple device that would allow us store and watch our favorite movies and television shows in High-Definition while also handling other digital media? We set out to find out.

The Box office comes in an unassuming box, as shown in Figure 1.

Opening the box reveals the contents shown in Figure 2. Along with the Box Office, you also get a remote control with 2 AAA batteries, 2 screws for securing the hard drive (shown in a small plastic bag), a composite video/analog audio cable, a USB cable, the power adapter, the user guide on CD and a quick installation guide. Kudos to Patriot for also including an HDMI cable. This is a cable which is often omitted but Patriot includes it saving the purchaser an extra cost as well as an extra trip to the store.
