      Comments about Brite View BV-3100 The PlayTime! 1080p HD Multimedia Player:

      I've been a long time user of a Patriot Box Office player and that unit still does well. Also have an Asus O!Play mini. I'd wanted another media player for an additional bedroom and this was a modest choice for the price and features desired.

      My main files are MP4 with a mix of AVI. Not a hitch playing them back. I wish it would read Advanced SubStation format files but it doesn't.

      Picture quality is good. The menu is simple and resembles the other media players using the same chipset. Easy to navigate through a drive.

      I was concerned about whetehr the USB port had enough power to spin up a Seagate 1.5T Slim portable drive. The Patriot and Asus mini will not spin this drive up. I'm happy to find that this Brite View has no problem spining that drive up. It reads fairly quickly too but expect about a 15+ second wait while it reads the file contents depending how loaded a drive may be.

      The remote is quite smallish and fits in hand well. No shifting hand position to try and reach a function button. A winner in that regard and I have gron to like the size. The unit is responsive too so one push even off axis will allow function. That is a big plus!

      Aspects I don't like, I wish the USB port was front mounted. This one is on the back so using an extension dock is an alternative choice for easier USB device access. If one leaves a large drive where it can be hidden, no big deal and in that instance, the clean look is welcomed.

      The white color. In a time when most components are black, this one is a "look at me" white contrast.

      For those small gripes aside, this unit is a winner. Now to see how long it will last. :)

        We needed a media file player for a hd tv monitor for trade shows..... we use to use a dvd ..... however we never liked the results...... the dvd player died so we tried this......

        Works like a charm, crisp clean images, easy to use menu, plenty of slide options.... you can add music if you like.....

        Also its a very "light" box..... to hide the "box" we just Velcroed it to the back of the monitor .....
