Home Media Player: FreeAgent Theater Next>>($150) There are a flood of devices hitting the market that decode and play your computer’s video files, but none work as smoothly as FreeAgent’s. The system works with both Mac and PC, smoothly handles 720p and 1080p video and remembers where you were in a movie, so you don’t need to fast forward to find your place should you stop mid-film. The only downside is the interface, which could really use a facelift, though it’s quite functional. It’s more practical than Apple TV, if not as stylish.
