Tech Industry: iLuv i1255

1:59 /

At CES 2008, we take a first look at the iLuv i1255, a DVD player and iPod dock combined in one.

[ music ] ^M00:00:04 [ background music ] >> Hi I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com here at CES 2008, taking a look at another product. This is the iLove. It's a DVD player and iPod dock, all combined in one. This is the iLove 1255. Retails for a hundred forty nine dollars, gonna be coming out in April. And it allows you to play your videos off your iPod, but also has a DVD player thrown in the mix as well. So if you're in the market for a new DVD player or you got an iPod this is actually a perfect solution for you. Little better than the Apple TV. Way it works, you've got this menu system, not granted this is the beta system, it will be improving by the time of launch they said, but it's really not bad. You go in from your remote, select the iPod, select your video. It's controlling the iPod just the way you're kind of used to seeing it. Go down here, I'll choose one of my TV shows, say Jericho season one, and it plays it right up on your television. Now the resolution of course is going to be whatever resolution you've got on your iPod, but it does output at 720p, so up to that level, whatever you've got, video podcast or whatever, is gonna show up there as well. Now if you want to watch a DVD, press the iPod DVD button, it will take you back to the menu screen, and switch you into the DVD mode. When you're in the DVD mode it'll work the way a DVD player works. Play, pause, menu system, all of that. This is gonna jump right into playing the DVD. But if I want to skip the international agreement warning, I can hit the menu, go in and look at any special features, or anything like that. Once again, the iLove 1255 has component on it. There is an iLove 1266 that they say will come out in May, don't have a price on that yet, will have an HDMI output. iLove 1255 again retails at one hundred forty nine dollars.
