The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Angular displacement

Using SD cards straight from camera is convenient but vertical (portrait) photos from two cameras, that both ‘knew’ what way up they were, appeared sideways in landscape mode and I had to manually rotate them using the (sometimes unresponsive) handset. Photos copied to my computer’s photo viewer and exported onto a thumb drive displayed properly.

Crystal Acoustics PicoHD5.1

As pocketable as a card reader and dwarfed by its own remote control

Verdict

The PicoHD5.1 crams an impressive number of features into something as small as two boxes of matches. Its lack of multichannel audio over HDMI is a shame and it’s not fully compatible with iTunes’ default audio or video formats, so if a big chunk of your library uses those formats you’ll may well be in for a tedious time with this product, renaming file extensions. The interface is less slick than, say, the WD TV players, but overall it’s versatile and good value. ®
