Summary: I purchased this Media Player because of the price and memory, since I have a 1 TB older Iomega ScreenPlay Pro HD media player that I used daily. I love this new one for many reasons and the first one being the design. This media player is smaller and lays horizontally on my TV stand, whereas my previous version was tall- not wide like this one- and it sat vertically, which caused me to live in constant fear that someone would knock it over and break the fan (that...
Summary: I purchased this media player based on the relatively positive reviews posted on Amazon. I was looking for something to take with me on a deployment, where space is at a premium and I could condense my DVD collection into media files and watch without getting my Macbook out. The player functions very well as an external hard drive. I had no issues reformatting in Fat32 for use in Windows and Mac OS.
Summary: The Iomega ScreenPlay works very well. I read the reviews prior to purchashing it and they were right, it does get hot when using it. I have a clip on fan and am using it to keep it cooled down. The fan and ScreenPlay does the job I was looking for.
Summary: Imagine 600+ bluray quality HD films, stored on a device that can connect to virtually any television; highly portable media library, that is easy to navigate, and to add films all you need to do is drag and drop from your computer to the device. This device is also capable of playing music, and viewing photos storing them on the harddrive. Unmass your collections to your friends, or have a movie night with your family on any television...
Excerpt: Of course, it does what it is supposed to do reasonably well, and it’s price is also not that bad, but even at this price, one would still expect it to have a lot more features such as WiFi, better speed, and easier connectivity to Mac computers. I find this product to be too limited in functionality, though my daughter thinks it’s decent enough. It does what it’s supposed to do, but I think in terms of media players, there are many other much better options out there.
Summary: I just LOVE this little machine! It hardly takes up any space, though it stores thousands of pictures, songs and movies. The player installed in under a minute and is very easy to use. One thing that could be better is the speed of the menus. But being a gigantic 2 TB hard drive, that may slow it down a little. Mind you, it is not so bad that it is disturbing. I got used to it very quickly. My previous HDD player was a 1 TB one that I have had for some years now.
Summary: I bought the device because of the informed compatibility with AVI format. It happens that it is not compatible with AVIs generated by Windows 7 native video capture tool. The files run perfectly on Media player (Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7) but they do not play on Screen play MX. Iomega support says they use the most common codecs, but it seems Windows 7 codecs are not common for them (unacceptable).
Summary: My only issue with this gem is the fact that you can not categorize your media. I have 2TB of movies and its painful to browse all these movies. If I could divide my movies into categories, (Horror, Comedy, Action, etc) then this device would be perfect. I can not comment on the online services that are offered as I do not use them.
Summary: unbeatable at this price. with 2tb i'm able to use my 2 1tb hard drives as back ups now, and have access to all of my video media on the go. with rca or hdmi output there aren't many tv's left that i can't play my videos through. and dvd files play exactly as they would on your computer, so if you saved the menu files in video_ts format all you have to do is select the movie's folder.
Summary: I purchased this item to back up all of my files. The main reason for this purchase was so that i will not have to encode my anime videos in order to watch them on TV. The iomega has an easy interface. The only draw back is that i could not adjust the image to my liking. This product is made for a Big Screen HD TV. I Love it. I no Longer have to spend hours encoding my videos and backing them up to DVDS. I used to wish this kind of product existed!!!!!!!!!!!!!
