NBOX Media Player
The contents include the media player, instruction manual, connection guide, composite video with analog audio cable, component cable, power supply and remote with battery included.
The rear of the palm-sized player is the connection ports, the front is the infra-red receiver, the left is a SD/SDHC/MMC card slot, the right is the USB 2.0 port. The top shows the main controls, however, they are not buttons, I wonder if they are touch-sensitive.
Hooking the player up and playback some RMVB files. The GUI looks 90% similar to that of the VZTEC player, hence I suspect that these players are rather OEM, though I prefer the fonts and tad larger icons on the latter.
The NBOX Media Player definitely does it work and playbacks the multimedia files with no interruptions. If you have no need for fancy Full HD support (also provided if your media files are in HD resolutions) and MKV file support, just get the NBOX Media Player. It is the cheapest and it serves its purpose. The best part is that you can put your mind at ease operating this player non-stop, 'cos its cheaply replaceable. All you need is a thumbdrive, SDHC card or portable harddisk drive (2.5" or 3.5" supported) to start enjoying your multimedia files on your living room TV!

Nintendo® Wii™ Fit Plus (Wiiフィットプラス) is the latest version of the best selling Nintendo® Wii™ Fit for the Nintendo® Wii™. The Wii™ Fit Plus, to be exact, is an upgrade or enhanced version of the original Wii™ Fit. It comprises of all the games and features of the original version and much more newer game modes, hence earning a "Plus". Since I never had the original Wii™ Fit, I decided to get the Wii™ Fit Plus with Wii™ Balance Board. This bundle set me back S$159. Alternatively, for Wii™ Fit owners who already own a Wii™ Balance Board, the Wii™ Fit Plus disc standalone just cost no more than S$30.
