The LaCie 2TB LaCinema PlayHD Media Player features full HD 1080p playback with both DTS and Dolby Digital Audio support for outstanding sound. There's a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port for transferring media onto the player, as well as a USB expansion port for connecting USB hard drives, digital cameras and video camcorders directly up to the LaCinema. This feature also affords USB storage expansion in-case you require more than the generous 2TB of internal storage capacity

Besides a USB 2.0 interface, the unit also features a full-size HDMI 1.3 output for connecting the media player to your HDTV. This facilitates uncompressed, full HD 1080p video playback. There's a composite video output as well, and for audio output to a stereo or home theater system, the unit's equipped with RCA L/R stereo audio outputs and a coaxial digital audio output. Plus, both HDMI and the coaxial digital audio interface support the high-quality DTS and Dolby Digital Audio decoding for surround sound.

With 2TB of internal storage capacity, the media player has ample room for storing your complete media library. It supports several video, audio and photo file formats, as well as direct connection via USB port of other media storage devices including MP3 players and digital cameras. For added flexibility, the device is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS, features a multi-language menu interface, and even comes with a wireless remote control for comfortable operation from your couch, chair or bed.

The LaCinema PlayHD was designed industrial and lighting designer Neil Poulton, who specializes in crafting deceptively simple-looking, mass-produced enclosures that hide very complicated technology and hardware. This contradiction between exterior simplicity and interior technology gives the LaCinema PlayHD Media Player a unique and distinctive look with modern aesthetic sensibilities.

All You Need for Home Entertainment
With 2TB of storage space, the LaCinema PlayHD can hold all of your movies, photos, and music. It's got full HD 1080p playback, which lets you enjoy your favorite photos and movies in high definition -- making them even better. And the features don't end there -- the LaCinema PlayHD is designed to be eco-friendly with its low noise and low power consumption HDD. Its energy mode automatically powers down the device after a period of inactivity, helping it to be one of the most energy-efficient choices on the market
Play All of Your Media
The LaCinema PlayHD's enhanced compatibility means that worrying about file formats is a thing of the past. It handles all major video formats with ease (MKV, AVI, H.264, etc.) letting you sit back and relax. DTS and Dolby compatibility are also included, which means you'll always experience stunning sound quality from your TV or home theater. Additionally, firmware updates are available from the LaCie website, so you can easily keep your LaCinema PlayHD up-to-date
Ready When You Are
Everything you need to get started with the LaCinema PlayHD is in the box. With the included HDMI cable, a simple remote control and an intuitive user interface, you can start using it immediately. Just plug in the cables, follow along with the straightforward installation wizard, and you can begin enjoying high definition in just seconds
Easy to Play, Easy to Manage
Connect the LaCinema PlayHD to your computer if you need to quickly copy your multimedia files to the drive. Then, enjoy them on your HDTV whenever you want. Or, instantly play movies or pictures from your hard disk, camera, or mobile phone with a USB port. The media library feature makes things even easier-it can organize all your multimedia content, helping you preview the beginning of a movie, or find your favorite songs in seconds, whether you're searching by album or artist. It's simple to manage everything from the user interface-just connect, transfer, and you're ready to play

        Comments about LaCie 2TB LaCinema PlayHD Media Player:

        I have wanted one of these for months, I finally bought one and I'm glad I did, it works like a charm - I use an HDMI to the TV for video, then connect my receiver using the RCA audio outs for better sound than my TV has (wasn't sure if that was possible until i got it, but it works great, some of these media players have optical audio). The picture quality is fantastic - I would suggest acquiring high quality MKV files for best audio and video - 700 MB AVI's will be pixelated, but 3+ Gig MKV's will look as good or better than Bluray (without ever having to wonder where that disc went again, or if it got scratched, blah blah blah). Buy this from B&H (which is the best price anywhere), and give your Bluray player away as a christmas present to your in-laws.

        Comments about LaCie 2TB LaCinema PlayHD Media Player:

        This is ultimately a good unit to allow me to ocntrol my movies from my couch. 2TB is a ton of storage, and the unit is very small, and not very noticeable. Runs very quite, had an issue that the LaCie technical support assisted free of charge (within 30 days of purchase). The movies load over very easily, and my problem was that I did not load the newest firmware. Once this was done the movies appeared when I plugged in via HDMI. The video quality is identical to a dvd, get yourself a good software to copy your dvds and boom - you have a digital collection. May even sell my DVDs now and payoff this unit. The con's is that their isn't artwork for your movies (at least I can't figure out how to do that). Also it doesn't have wifi. However I can live without both of these things because it works great so far.
