Seagate stocks sizeable storage hub for home entertainment
In the box, on the box
Seagate has unveiled its latest home entertainment hub, the GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive, a storage centre with a whopping 3TB storage.
Ports are in abundance, with HDMI and composite-video, RCA stereo audio, S/PDIF optical audio and a USB connection to turn it into a removable drive.
There's heaps of video format support, including MKV, H.264 and MP4, which the GoFlex Cinema plays back in 1080p quality. Oh, and a remote control for couch potatoes.
The GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive is available now across Europe in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB versions, costing €99 (£87), €129 (£113) and €179 (£157), respectively. Exact UK pricing is TBC. ®
Nice looking box, but its no home hub!
With USB2 only its just an external hard drive with some nice software and HDMI output. (no i did not forget the audio) The problem is how do you put all your music or videos on this unit.
What this needs is a a fast network connection (wired or wireless) so that you can put your movies on the drive. Do they have any idea how large a 1080p MKV file can be?
