TViX HD M-4000SA: Hard Drive Case Plays HD DiVX, H.264 and Full DVD Movies


The TViX HD M-4000SA is a case for 3.5" SATA hard drives that can output 1080i video through component and DVI outputs. It's going to be available in Korea from May 30 but, like all DViCO stuff, it won't be late before is available elsewhere for around $230.

What I like best about the TViX HD M-4000SA is its DVD Jukebox ability: It allows you to store ISO and IFO format DVD images, which you can browse and playback, keeping access to the DVD menus. Being the movie junkie that I am (with more than a thousand original DVDs here), that means all my Russ Meyer Kubrick, Wilder and Coppola can be easily available from one place, with no painful ripping necessary. And even when that can make you run out of space quickly, you can always expand the space using either bigger drives or external USB 2.0 units. Full specs and a picture of the back with the optional terrestrial TV receiver after the jump.

Yes, the TViX HD M-4000SA doesn't support full HDTV or HDMI, even while DViCO says that it will be able to play 1,920 x 1,080 video files in the specs. However, for most people this will be more than enough right now. For those with HDMI-only sets, DVI-HDMI adapters are readily available.
