Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link review

 

There's little doubt that TV is moving more toward an on-demand model powered by content that's pulled from the Internet rather than traditional broadcast sources. But products that pull in video from networked PCs and various online...

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.

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link

 

Miniature USB media playback device.

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

 

Easy media playback with Iomega's little box

Great codec support ; Good upscaling ; Portable

You'll be hard-pressed to find an easier or better way to play back your media over USB

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link review

 

The size of a deck of cards, weighing just 99.9g, the black half-metal, and half-plastic body of the Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link tightly packs all the essential ports (component, composite, HDMI and USB) at the back.

The portable design and the simplistic approach to playing off the USB device makes it a viable option. If it played full HD and supported more formats, the Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link would surely grab more attention.

Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link

 

Cool media player that offers a lot within its relatively small casing, but lacks true HD playback.

Video upscaling ; HDMI output ; Price

No Full HD ; Poor file-format support

The Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link is definitely one of the better priced media players currently. However the TV-Link can neither offer the "plays any media file you throw at it" line, nor is it as cheap as a DVD Player with similar functionality. It thus...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Excellent Product, I would've paid more for this.

 

I only use this over direct network connection right out of the box and it works better than i expected. -I would highly recommend this product I got it from the September special, ends 9/30. -And like i wrote earlier, i would've paid double for...

Network Media access for under $100+ is insane ; Wifi option, Whaaaaaaaaaaat?? That's just too much IOmega ; Nice UI, I didn't think it was slow at all, for what it's doing you might wanna give it a break, lol ; HDMI (recommended) but I use RCA ; Slim...

I think it needs better instructions for the features and tips on how to use the remote more efficiently ; I was not able to use you-tube right out of the box, and I will need to look online for from directions how to set that up. (you-tube videos were...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very Disappointing

 

This is the case where a product gets released before it is actually finished. The product functionally should match the documentation. But it doesn't. Maybe newer firmware will fix it. But the slow jpeg performance tells me the unit has a slow...

It's small

Excessively bright front LED, the kind used in headlamps ; The user manual I downloaded said, the unit can play back a "DVD folder just like playing back a DVD disc", by selecting the VIDEO_TS.IFO file in the VIDEO_TS folder. But the unit doesn't...

This one's the most awaited home-multime

 

Till five years ago I thought a multimedia receiver for home network, with all-filetype compatibility and impeccable precision would be next to impossible. With this Screenplay TV link director from Iomega, it has become a reality. I have a classic...
