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

James Allan Brady - Sep 4, 2007

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.

What it does have is the integrated ability to convert recorded shows to the proper file types for your iPod, PSP, Game Boy Micro, and more. It does support a few formats including the following: MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, JPG, PNG, GIF, and MPEG-4. Yeah, its available now for $179, but I would save your money and go buy something else or at least something better.
