Iomega ScreenPlay

by Richard

Everytime I download a big video, it’s usually something that my girlfriend wants to watch too. Rather than watch videos from my computer with her, and be stuck 2 feet in front of my computer monitors, on separate chairs for an hour or so, I usually copy the file onto a DVD, hook my laptop up to the entertainment center and then we watch it on the TV, from the couch… which is much more comfortable and has a larger screen. The Iomega ScreenPlay cuts out some of those steps. Just about everyone has a portable hard drive or flash drive. This goes one step farther, and lets you copy/save videos, MP3s and your photo collection to it, then play/display them on whatever TV you happen to be near. Oh, and it even comes with a remote! It’s reasonably priced, at $219.95 for the 60GB model and is available now.

    “USB powered”? So what about when you want to use it where there is no computer? Not possible?

    So it’s a TV card + external HDD in one?

    There’s something I’m not getting here!

    It is can be powered by either USB (from your laptop, desktop or powered hub) or by power adapter (which is included). You can plug it directly into a TV, as you would a VCR or DVD player, because it has S-Video and Composite video ports built in, and RCA Stereo outputs for sound.

    It does not have a tuner card built in. It is made for letting you view videos, movies, pictures, and listen to MP3s on a TV from wherever you are.
