The Asus O!Play HDP-R1 is a small box that you can stream HD or standard definition video, pictures, and audio to your television set. You plug it into your TV, connect a hard drive or other storage with media via the USB port, and navigate the menus using the included remote control. It’s that easy.
There are two things that set the O!Play HDP-R1 apart from some other media streaming devices on the market. First, it costs less than $100. And second, it has an Ethernet jack that lets you stream media over a home network from a PC or networked attached storage device.
The unit I’m giving away is the same device I reviewed in October. While I’ve been following the firmware updates and other developments related to this device, I have a strict policy of not accepting and keeping any gifts from the companies that I cover at Liliputing. And since Asus doesn’t need me to return this particular unit, I’ve been given the go-ahead to offer it up as a contest prize.
Because I’m footing the bill for shipping and the box is a little heavy, I’m limiting this contest to residents of the United States and Canada. Please read the official contest rules for more information.
You know the drill. In order to enter, leave a short comment below telling me why you deserve to win. The contest closes at 12:01AM Eastern on December 3rd.
