Magnetox v120 is Mac Mini Look-A-Like with DVR Functionality

The Magnetox v120 has an uncanny likeness to the Mac Mini, but I assure you the Magnetox doesn’t even compare in functionality. In fact I am going to go so far as to say that the v120 would be a complete waste of money as it doesn’t really do any of its intended functions completely or all that well on its own.

First, let’s start with the fact that it’s a DVR with no integrated storage or even a program guide. Then lets move on to the fact that its probably analog only. After that head straight to the fact that its limited number of formats supported doesn’t even make it all that good of a media player.

So, being the shallow person I am, I am going to go ahead and judge this book by its rack-mountable cover, its not gonna be cheap. It can record up to 100 hours of HD content, and since it is for the DirecTV network you can bet users will have plenty of HD content to record.

It will support 1080p output, through its pretty Optical HDMI port. There is a whole slew of ports pictured on the back, but none of them are OTA antenna connectors for recording HD over the air.

Bang & Olufsen are at it again with a new version of their DVD player. Once again, this isn’t the most attractive DVD player, but its feature set makes it well worth it.

This DVD player provides near-MCE level functionality. It has a DVD player and recorder, a TV tuner/recorder, and an integrated HDD for storage of media.
