The MVix Wireless HD Media HDD Enclosure is shipping NOW!
I have not found yet any other AV HDD enclosure that features a wireless interface. The MVIX seems to be the first one. If you know about another please email me.
Media HDD enclosures with LAN are available, like the AL Tech Mediagate. Most media enclosures are still just offering USB interfaces, which is really not that convenient.
Wireless access to the media drive is of course the best. You can place it in your living room and update the videos or audio files remotely from you PC without wiring your place or having to invest in a wireless adapter.
The MVIX Multimedia Player MV-5000U is actually sold in the United States. But that model still only comes with USB. See the MVIXStore site for more details. I hope Unicorn Information Systems (site) sees the potential and will bring their wireless enclosure to the US market soon. Update: MVIX USA expects the product to hit the US market in July or August.
