Media players aren't really anything new, but 2009 has seen a surge in the popularity of these devices. This popularity may be partly due to the economy having people looking to be entertained at home, as well as with people having more digital media they want to enjoy in their living room and not on their computer.

The increased number of competitively priced media players also has to be considered a factor, as many new players have entered this corner of the market. Seagate and Western Digital, two heavy weights in the hard drive market, have both released more than one media player in the past year. Companies like this are not only able to put their vast resources in to developing a quality product, but they can also expect to sell more USB hard drives in the process.
