LaCie's LaCinema Mini HD: compact as a disc

The LaCinema Mini HD has a 120 x 120mm footprint but manages to house a 500GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi pick-up, DLNA media server and player.

There's an HDMI port round the back - and LaCie nicely includes a suitable cable in the box - ready to feed your content on your telly at up to 1080p resolution.
