          Comments about Iomega 1TB ScreenPlay MX2 HD Media Player:

          it is basically an external hard drive with a remote thats cool. but i was disapointed when it need a firmware update right out of the box. and even more disapointed when i found out i could not play back may digital copy movies (wmv files generated with windows 7).IOMEGA tech help said i need to call micro soft due to codec or drm issues. the whole reason i purchased this product was to from a digital libary for my home entaintment center with out the need for a pc connection.beaware this product will not perform that task.

          Comments about Iomega 1TB ScreenPlay MX2 HD Media Player:

          We bought the Screenplay so we could play videos on our HD monitors when exhibiting at tradeshows. Playing video files from a hard drive, through a HDMI connection on a TV. Seems pretty simple huh?
          Not so much for this device, The first issue is the incredibly inconvenient user-interface. We have had to write out a half-page instruction sheet to send with the device so that our salesman can play one video file. For example (and this is a quote from the instruction sheet I wrote out, for the ScreenPlay Plus)
          "Step 4. Press POWER button on back of the Hard Drive Media Player. This will turn on the "hard drive" portion of the Hard Drive Media Player. You will get a solid blue light on the front. Step 5. Press power button on remote. This will turn on the "media player" portion of the Hard Drive Media Player. You will get a flashing blue light on the front."
          There are two steps to turning on the device! That is clue about the way Iomega approaches usability.
          Even though the specifications state that the player should be able to play a number of different files, I have found that the even if the codec and file format are compatible with the player, the device often does not play certain files at all or is very unstable with other file types. I am a video professional and I end up doing a number of different conversion before I find one that works.
          Also the device overheats often. And now we are having trouble with the devices freezing up and having to be restarted every thirty minutes or so.
          Another design flaw, if you loose the remote or if it is damaged, there is absolutely no way to work the device.
          I have Iomega external hard drives, a Screenplay Director, and Screenplay plus and I am finished buying things from this company. Haven't been satisfied yet.
