Lenovo has just announced that it’s producing its own media streamer, in the same vein as Google’s Chromecast—but with a few extra features. The neat, black puck will let you beam video straight to your TV from most devices, for the princely sum of $50.
Google and Dropbox have some ridiculously low-priced 1TB storage options. With so much space for so little money, what could you do with it? Well, for starters, you could turn them into your own personal media servers.
Once upon a time you would have bought a turntable, cassette deck, or CD player for your audiophile music setup. Wires and physical media? So archaic. That's why Pioneer now has the N50 AirPlay and DLNA compatible networked audio player, which should make your high quality audio files sound great.
Don't let the looks fool you. Cue Acoustics' wireless PS1 speakers aspire to not only exist alongside larger (and more expensive) tower speakers often coveted by audiophiles, but also among streaming audio devices. And these don't need a subwoofer either, because it's built-in.
At CES next week, LG plans on announcing the Smart TV Upgrader, but they've given us a sneak-preview today. What does it do? Basically, the add-on upgrades non-"smart" TV sets with DLNA, apps, plus a web browser.
LaCie's new three-in-one Wireless Space box might help you clear out some apartment clutter, acting as wirelessly networked backup storage, a DLNA media server, and a range-boosting WiFi access point or router. Available in 1 or 2 TB configurations. [LaCie]
LaCie makes design-friendly, premium hard drives. But while it's no surprise that their LaCinema Classic HD looks this attractive, the $250 price is shockingly reasonable.
Netgear's Stora is, on one hand, a typical 2-bay NAS. For $230, you get a 1TB of storage along with an extra bay for expansion for automatic RAID mirroring. But it's the easy online file sharing that's special.
Want to get media onto your TV using some of that fancy DLNA standard hardware? You still might be at a loss for which media center software is right for you, but now there's a handy chart.
Digeo today brings its Moxi HD DVR in range of TiVo with some capabilities it was sorely lacking in a big way, including DLNA 1.0 for home streaming, and PlayOn for grabbing major net video.
"Play To" is the ability to right-click a media file in Windows 7's Media Player and send it to any networked gadget appearing in the pop-up menu. It's sweet now, but it could be huge.
Hitachi showed off a cool-looking camcorder concept at CEATEC this week, which adds a Wi-Fi module for streaming video from its hard drive or what's being shot live over WLAN to your TV. For recorded video it uses DLNA, which means it will work with any number of DLNA-compatible HDTVs or a PS3.
Sony's DA6400ES and DA5400ES hi-def A/V receivers won't exactly get your nerd juices (it's a thing) flowing, but if you're in the market for a high-end unit for your home entertainment system, they might be worth considering. Merging a relatively predictable feature set with newer DLNA streaming technology and an…
Fitting a 1TB into a box measuring 5.31 x 3.22 x 1.57 inches isn't all that easy (most NAS boxes we've seen would crush a squirrel easily) but Buffalo seems to have not only accomplished this but shoved in a whole bunch of other features as well. The Mini's got a Gigabit Ethernet port, support for RAID 0 and 1, Active…
It's not quite the 2.0 firmware rumored to be coming out soon, but this 1.8 firmware for the PlayStation 3 seems to have some nice features of its own too.
This is the NAC-HD1 250GB HDD digital music server, Sony's new sound system component. The included CD player will rip your albums onto its hard drive, with space for up to 125,000 tunes. The system can also stream content to other hardware compatible with the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standard. And…
Time marches on, drives get bigger, and Buffalo rolls out another TeraStation network attached storage (NAS) system, and now it's called the TeraStation Pro and inches up to 3TB. Last time we looked, Buffalo's biggest dick was 2TB long, and ran a cool $1999. Fast forward 10 months, and this 3TB model is $2183. Not too…
