Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link Director

 

Most video media players are restrictive since you have to buy a 2.5 inch hard disk alongside it. Iomega's sleek ScreenPlay TV Link Director edition works a bit differently.

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link

 

If you want more content than is available on Blu-ray and DVDs and from over-the-air broadcasts, you will need to find some way to let your TV access ...

Simple, convenient for multimedia playback

No eSATA, Firewire or card reading; inconvenient USB port location

If you do not know how to hook up a PC to your television, the ScreenPlay TV Link offers a convenient way to play multimedia content.

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link review: Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link

 

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link

Audiovisual dongle allows for the playback of multimedia files from any USB drive (FAT32 or NTFS) source; compatible with most popular audio, video, and image formats; easy setup; included remote control; tiny size; included composite and component...

Various connections cause clutter in rear of device; front-mounted USB port would've been more convenient; eSATA, FireWire, or flash media reader options would've been nice as well.

The Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link offers an easy way to watch digital video files without the need to hook up a computer to your TV.

Review: Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link DX

 

Turn your ordinary TV into a Smart TV.

Plays most popular media file format; Three USB ports; Easy-to-use interface; Multiple input and output options; Wireless and wired connectivity with DLNA, QWERTY remote control for internet activity.

Remote control is cumbersome with unconventional design for media control; Intermittently sluggish response; No memory card reader.

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link MX HD Media Player

 

Not exactly a newcomer to the media player market, Iomega adds one more to its ScreenPlay line with the ScreenPlay TV Link MX. What do we think of it besides the fact that it has a long name? Read on to find out.

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link

 

We're taking a look at the Iomega(r) ScreenPlay(tm) TV Link. A solid-state (no moving parts) device that promises to make it convenient and affordable to access

At less than $100 this is a steal. Far easier to carry around than a DVD/DiVX player and astonishingly good at what it does.

ScreenPlay - Plays well as documented

 

Note that I said I use a FAT32 formatted hard drive. It is a known fact that NTFS formatted hard drives have difficulty running smoothly with with Linux based devices like the Hava Titanium HD and I believe the Screenplay TV Link. True you come up...

Plays every DIVX/XVID video I have thrown at my ScreenPlay TV Link from my FAT32 formatted 250gig Seagate external HD. Additionally, full DVDs ripped & play just as if I was playing original DVD. Hooked in via HDMI cable, running audio from digital...

Would like true digital audio with true surround 5-1 sound. Menu system in very basic. Need better playlist capability to "see before view" functionality. The so-called tool Iomega allows you download for creation of playlists is essentially...

OK but get the Western Digital HD TV

 

I own the Iomega screenPlay TV Link and the new Western Digital HD TV. There is no comparison as the Western Digital HD TV is a much more polished and professional product! The WD HD TV is well worth the price difference. The WD HD TV menus are great...

Small, Plays most any file format, lower cost than competition

Menus are very basic, small remote, frequently get out of sync audio on Divx/Xvid files

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not an easy process

 

it worked and it looks great or at least as good as a downloaded movie can look ; on a high def TV

HDMI would not work on any of 4 different high def TVs I have ; Component would only work on a Visio (out of 4 tvs) ; the only way it would work was with therca jacks it came with ; if you have one of the first Sony component capable tvs made forget it...
