Iomega's ScreenPlay makes your A/V jukebox portable

Gigabytes of storage are such a commodity now that it's not enough to just make a big hard drive; you have to add features. Iomega, a long time player in the storage arena, has run with this concept and embedded multimedia playing capabilities into its mobile ScreenPlay Multimedia Drive. It's a veritable jukebox for music, photos, and videos, and the content can be outputted to virtually any television or A/V system. The face of the slim, silver drive houses a number of buttons for navigating through content and the drive comes with a remote control for couch surfing. The drive lacks an LCD so all the navigation takes place on your TV. A USB 2.0 port allows you to connect it to your PC, where it operates as a standard external hard drive: you can drag and drop files directly from your PC to the ScreenPlay. It has both S-Video and composite video outputs and compatible video formats include MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4. It's compatible with Windows systems and Mac OS X or higher. The 60GB ScreenPlay is shipping now for a suggested price of $219.95.
