A 1 TB multimedia external hard disk from for less than Rs 4500!

I was looking for some external hard disks on while I came across a multimedia one for $149.99. This means around Rs 5000 if you add some other expenses.

This seemingly is a very cheap and decent deal because the hard disk is 1 TB and you can easily plug it into your computer or even television!

It's name is Iomega ScreenPlay Plus HD Multimedia Player 1 TB - 34499.

Here are the features:
  • 1TB of capacity for your media files
  • HDMI connection to easily plug into your HDTV
  • Convenient USB interface on front
  • Multiple TV/AV connections on back
  • HD playback up to 1080i
  • Supports MPEG1/2/4; DivX; XviD
  • DivX Home Theatre Certified
  • Iomega Protection Suite Software (via download)
  • 3 year warranty with product registration
  • Energy Star qualified adapter for a better environment

But there are some cons out there because unfortunately this thing doesn't support all video format while being viewed on TV. But anyway it can still be used as a 1 TB external hard disk to store all kinds of files on a PC or laptop. 

For the time being in Mauritius, you can buy a 500 GB external hard disk for Rs 5000 and the hard disk in Mauritius is not a multimedia one and you cannot connect it to your TV BTW!

I am seriously thinking of buying this in some months because one of my relatives will be going abroad and because for the time being I'm a noob at LOL! You can click here to know even more about this product.
