    You need to move with the times. Ditch the idea of buying a DVD player with USB playback. Get a media player. Play the movies direct off the PC or from a USB drive; either pen or a USB disk drive.

    There's quite a few to choose from. I like the Android MX media players that come pre-loaded with a nice front end interface called XBMC. (You can download this for free and try it on your PC first).

    Alternative boxes include Roku, WDTV (Western Digital TV), and the Now TV box. Each has its pro's and con's. I went Android MX because it covers the most bases with the least amount of hassle for a sensible amount of money (£70 when I bought a year ago, but under £50 now). It also has internet browser (Google Chrome) and a whole host of Android smartphone/tablet features built in.
