Engadget Summary

HP's Pocket Playlist is a pocket-sized portable hard drive that can act like a DVR for Internet video. HP bundled the Pocket Playlist with the subscription-based PlayLater software (Windows only), allowing you to record and save content for later viewing on your Android or iOS device from services like Hulu+, Netflix, and more. When AllThingsD gave it a spin, they found the Pocket Playlist "worked as advertised" and they were able to stream music and video to "four devices at once." However, when playing the same video on multiple devices they noticed "playback was a bit choppy" on one. As for carrying it around, PC Mag says the Pocket Playlist "will slip easily into your jeans pocket." While it may only have 32GB of storage, the Pocket Playlist comes in at almost half the price of some of its competitors, while offering the ability to play recorded Internet video content in a more compact size.
