Help Choose a Media Player or Home Theater

NOOB ?: When to use HTPC and when to use a media player?

What are the pro and con of media players:
WD Live
Patriot Box Office
Asus O'Play
Popcorn Hour
Popcorn Box

Is anyone aware of a side by side comparison, showing features and formats they play?

What are the main things to look for?

How does this compare to using a home theater pc?

I have a plasma tv monitor, and Z5500's for sound. I currently do use windows media player, and like it. Network would be nice, to connect to a NAS. Also would be nice to use it to control music. Music will go out to an amp.

Thanks all.
