Iomega ScreenPlay HD DriveDon't multimedia lovers just love the "T" word? It evokes pictures of endless photos, video and music. Who doesn't want to house Led Zeppelin's entire discography by their desk-side -- nevermind a career-spanning collection of video and high-res photography?

Iomega is releasing its "ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive" at a hefty 500 gigabytes, a big leap from the 60GB capacity of the previous generation. The new ScreenPlay is selling for around $200 -- isn't time a wonderful thing in technology? -- and it is designed to compete with a growing number of products for the home storage market, such as LaCie's "LaCinema Premier" (which is reviewed here).

As expected, the new ScreenPlay drive has audio and video outputs, but it also includes an HD "upscaling" feature to provide higher video quality with the right home setup. Happy media making! (Thanks to Mike at the Crave blog.)

  • Too bad Iomega over price there stuff

    The zip drive was one of the best things they every made. Then they over charge for the disks killing it.

    A lot of there stuff is over price which make it a surprise they are even still in business.
