MVIX Wireless HD Media HDD Enclosure

MVIX Wireless HD Media HDD Enclosure

Korean Unicorn Information System offers a media HDD enclosure with LAN and Wi-Fi interface.

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
