LaCie LaCinema Rugged multimedia drive: Never watch a TV repeat again
There's plenty of good made-for-the-web video content available today. It's fair to say the web video industry has come a long ways in the past few years. If you're not part of the 20% of web video viewers who watch less traditional TV thanks to new media, at the very least it's great during the primetime offseason and its neverending repeats. But what's the best way to stream the content from the web to your HDTV?
LaCie's new LaCinema Rugged multimedia drive provides an easy solution without the need for any elaborate HTPC setup or monetary outflow. The $350 hardware hooks up to your PC or Mac via USB 2.0 and then accepts downloading video, audio and pictures. Most popular video codecs are accepted included H.264, MKV, WMV9 and MPEG4.
The 500 GB drive can hold up to 700 movies, according to LaCie, and it has a similar form factor to the company's Rugged Hard Disk--an anti-scratch aluminum outer shell, a shock-resistant bumper, and internal anti-shock absorbers.
