Even though Philips has integrated YouTube-access the box offers no other Internet Apps / feature, which might prove to be a deal breaker for some users. But if you just want a network media streamer, HMP5000 might be the right solution for you.

Philips HMP5000 will be available from September and carries a 129.99 Euro price tag.
