I got one of these at a higher price a few months ago, and it certainly may be of interest to some people. As far as I can tell, it's a deal of the week and will probably end at the weekend. Here's the overview:
This Emprex ME1-V2 High Definition Media Player Recorder allows you to play music, view high resolution photos, or enjoy High Definition video on your TV, and acts as a versatile multimedia hub with compatibility for a wide range of digital file types.
The Emprex ME1-V2 High Definition Media Player Recorder also has a built-in recorder so you can record shows and movies from your TV! Time Shift functionality allows you to effectively delay the viewing of programmes whilst you watch another show or go off to make a cup of tea! The Emprex ME1-V2's record function requires an optional hard drive, and here the ME1-V2 can act as an HDD enclosure via its internal IDE connection, or be connected up to an external USB drive.
Thanks to a built in RJ-45 Ethernet connector you can also use the Emprex ME1-V2 High Definition Media Player Recorder to stream content from networked devices such as your PC, notebook or home NAS. Video output comes in the form of composite and component ports, with High Definition transmission being possible via the YPbPr component connector.
With all of this functionality on offer at a surprisingly affordable price, the Emprex ME1-V2 High Definition Media Player Recorder lets you unleash the full power of your digital media collection without breaking the bank!
