    Interesting Product

    Was looking up fatwallet yesterday, and found this product:

    http://contents.fifthunit.com/html/p...h/sku.782.html

    It's a 2.5" HDD Enclosure, that has audio and video (VGA,RCA) outputs. Just put your hard drive in here, and it'll play all the media on it !

    MP3 / MP4 / DVD / VCD / JPEG / DIVX / XVID / AVI
    5.1 Stereo Playback
    Search playback, repeat playback, a-b segment repeat playback, etc.
    9-picture playback function for the picture,12 kinds of pictures playback transition effect
    Cvbs/avand VGA video output, can be connected to the TV or computer display


    Best part, its only around 28 bux !

    They also have a 3.5" version that costs a little more. anyone used one of these before ?

    Wow, I think I'm gonna get one to play with. The one thing that would make this perfect would be a NAS type of device/interface.

    Wonder if it offers some kind of upgradeable firmware to support future codecs. As cheap as it is, probably not.

    sorry for not knowning, but whats a NAS interface ?

    also, i dont think updating the firmware would be a big deal on these days.. support is the only problem, all these are made in china and come frm the manufacturer directly...

    network attached storage. So you can transfer stuff to it across a network, instead of USB, might of been a little bit faster transfer.

    Yeah, after looking at it a bit more, they do support the 480mbps "high speed" usb 2.0, which is ok for me.

    Some of those extremely cheap items say they'll do USB 2.0, but it'll only be the 2.0 "full speed", which runs at like 12mbps.

    Good call thanatos.

    Though it would be a cool little mod to grab the little 2.5" version and build it into a lilliput or something. Little portable video device. VGA output is a definite plus for this.
