WD Player has been officially launched in India a couple of days back for a price of 6.5K. Its cheaper than the price in Singapore.

Hey that is great news. Hope to see this in stores like reliance digital in a month. Can't wait to lay my hands on one. I have my whole movie collection (1 TB+) in hard disks. So this will be a great way to watch them on TV. cheers:

Cheers

Has anyone been able to figure out what stores in India sell WD TV media player!!
How are you guys comparing it with NMTs like PCH or eGreat!! I see only difference is network connectivity and eGreat like device can support eSATA and HDMI 1.3a

Do you guys have any idea where in US I can get PCH 110? online or any other shop!!
alternate option for me is to ask a friend in SG to buy that for me, If you guys know a place in SG, please let me know. I went thru other options, they seem less popular - not sure about quality, services and firmware updates and hence I guess PCH would be a better choice if we can source it from somewhere.

I beleive, I'm going with PCH.
Does anyone know where do I get it in US, I can either ask a friend to buy for me and send across or I shall try to look for during my next visit next month or so.

Also, I see that they have online store at SG but not in US. If someone know where in SG we can get this would also be helpful. I shall ask friends to get it for me.
Thanks.
