The actual media player is pretty standard looking. It’s a little black box with very little in the way of styling. On the front there’s just a small Eminent logo and the obvious receiver for the remote.
The top panel also has a logo, though it’s indented. Woo.
The right hand side has an SD card slot and a single USB 2.0 port.
The back is where the action is, with another USB port, USB 3.0 host port, HDMI connector, ethernet next to the coaxial, composite and optical connectors. It seems a shame that there’s no component connector for those without an HDMI supporting TV, but this is probably a minority of people that are buying hardware like this.
It’s also a shame to see that the USB 3.0 port is only a host, which means you need a laptop or PC with a USB 3.0 port in order to transfer files. Why can’t I just use my USB 3.0 flash drive?
If you want to take out or replace the interior hard drive, you have to unscrew the panel on the underside.
The default HDD in this version is a 320GB Seagate Pipeline.
