ATI MULTIMEDIA CENTER BRIEFING (cont'd)



To play those comedy movie clips you have downloaded, a convenient File Player is included. I found the player to take over the computer a little too much seeing that I use Windows Media Player mostly and ATI kinda assumed ownership of all the media file associations without my permission. A little irritating, but reversible.



Got a Video CD you would like to view, well, it's included also.



Also, if you have a videocard capable of TV input like the Radeon series of videocards from ATI or another brand, you can take advantage of the cable tv viewing with their TV software which is simple and really easy to use. I never thought I would like to watch TV while working, but I find it more enjoyable sometimes than music.


CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS




Do you have TV-out and are viewing movies in another room? Are you sick of getting up and constantly walking back and forth to your room to pause the movie or change programs. Or perhaps on the other hand, you are a business man/woman that spends a great amount of time doing boardroom presentations and would like some freedom from being tied to your computer while going through your slideshows. If any of these traits sound familiar or if you could find another use for such a versatile product, at $49USD, I find this product to be quite affordable and would make life a lot easier around the home and/or office. This is a great product and I use it everyday. You will find that it incorporates itself into your computing life and will make you more efficient in the workplace.


Pro's:


- Completely wireless
- Ability to work through walls and rooms
- Great Quality
- Full featured Media Suite
- Reasonably Priced


Con's:


- File Player takes over Media file extensions without permission from the user during installation.
- Needs to be more available in retail stores.
