ASUS O!Play HD2 quietly arrives at CeBIT 2010

ASUS have quietly added a third model to their O!Play mediaplayer range, the ASUS O!Play HD2.  With no information beyond a name in the CeBIT 2010 press release they've sent us, however, and nothing on the company site, we're left guessing to its complete specifications, though the single photo does reveal USB, eSATA and various forms of memory card reader.

Update: The O!Play HD2 is confirmed to have not only USB 2.0 but USB 3.0 connectivity.

GuruPlug Server Plus boosts Sheevaplug, adds eSATA & more

Remember Marvell's third-gen Sheevaplug?  The newest server-in-a-wall-wart made its debut at CES 2010 last month, adding WiFi and Bluetooth along with a faster, more capable chipset.  As we saw before, the core Sheevaplug design often prompts some interesting third-party versions, and one such mini-server is Globalscale's GuruPlug Server Plus.  It takes the basics of the Sheevaplug and throws in an eSATA port, a second gigabit ethernet port and a microSD card slot.

Umazone UMA-ISO automatically mounts your DVD images

Japanese accessory manufacturer Umazone have outdone themselves with a hard-drive caddy that will likely strike a chord with anyone doing regular software installs.  The Umazone UMA-ISO looks like a regular 2.5-inch HDD drive enclosure; however it also has a small display and, on the side, a jog wheel, which can be used to flick through ISO CD and DVD images stored on the drive inside.  Once selected, plugging the UMA-ISO into a host computer is pretty much the same as dropping the original disc into a CD/DVD drive.

ASUS Eee Box EB1012 and EB1501 Ion-toting nettops get video hands-on

ASUS' latest NVIDIA Ion based nettops have been well and truly pawed over by NetbookNews.de, and considering that the Eee Box EB1012 at least seems destined for the US market it's only right that we should take an interest.  The EB1012 - and the ASUS Eee Box EB1501 - uses Intel's dual-core Atom 330 1.6GHz processor, paired with the Ion 1080p-capable graphics chipset, with the key difference being that the EB1501 finds room to squeeze in an optical drive.
