Question Best stand alone media hardware player for usb?

Hello. I'm looking for the best stand alone (box) that will play video files from usb flash drives and hard drives. I want a dedicated box for living room. I have been playing usb flash drives thru my Sony blu ray player but it stutters too much. Yes my TV has a processor and usb, but it is wall mounted and the usb is not easy to get to.

I mostly focused on playing video files. Streaming and games are a bonus. I have heard good things about the 2015 roku 2 and 3? Someone mentioned a WD player? What about all these android boxes I see online.

So many choices! Lol can someone please help me out? Thanks.

I've used Roku, WDTV Live and Amazon FireTV. I like the FireTV the best. It's android based and you can side load all sorts of apps. Very versatile.
It's fast and performs well.
