Samsung plasma gets a hard drive

Uber-screen is heading to CES

Samsung

While we're always in favor of plasma progress, we're conflicted over this latest development. In the ever-elusive quest for an all-in-one entertainment device, Samsung is trying out a "Multi-Media Center" that combines its 50-inch HP-T5064 plasma TV with a Wi-Fi receiver and a hard drive that can be used for storing video and PC media. Electronista says the media center will be shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

Why do we have mixed feelings? It's taken so long for flat screens to get so sleek and affordable (relatively) that we're afraid the industry will screw it up by trying to tack on too many other devices and making them way more expensive.
