ZAGG ZAGGbox


$1,000.00 Released April, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Easy to use on screen display. Includes a truly universal remote which can control any device connected to the ZAGGbox. Can also be controlled remotely via an iPod Touch / iPhone application - with other smartphone applications in the works.

The Cons:High price. Cheap looking build - both remote and main unit are covered in glossy plastic. No HDMI inputs.

The ZAGG ZAGGbox is a home media center that allows a user to record, store, and play all their digital media content on a single device. It automatically reads and transcodes any video codec into two separate formats: one for television viewing, and one optimized specifically for mobile viewing.

This means a user can directly stream all his or her stored content to a mobile Internet device or built-in web server. It connects by 802.11b/g/n and includes UPnP & SMB protocols for compatibility. Perhaps most notable about the ZABBbox is that it comes with an authentic universal remote, allowing users to control any device connected to it.

Additional Information

A free iPhone Application is available from Apple; it allows a user full access to their ZABBbox from the palm of their hand.

Aaron Vorbau: #zagg_zaggbox I believe the ZAGGbox is releasing sometime in October. Here's a comparison chart and review of it compared to Apple TV, Slingbox, and TiVo:

I plan on using the discount code ZAGG20 when ordering the ZAGGbox to save 20%. Or hopefully codes from http://facebook.com/codes4discount will work, too.

Too bad there are no HDMI inputs!

I think its killer that you can record your Xbox games to the ZAGGbox! Sep 5, 10
