iScreen reaches the 100GB mark


US Modular is announcing their iScreen Media Fusion portable video player device has just hit the 100 GB mark. This is the only 100 GB portable video player priced under $500, it gives users MP4 video recording of up to 80 hours, an MP3 player, photo album (JPG only), voice recorder and just a plain-old data storage device. USB 2.0 will let you transfer your media fairly quickly.

The system will play MP3 and oddly enough, RM files, thanks to the built-in RealOne Player. I personally hate all RM and Real files simply due to the fact that the RealOne Player for desktops literally takes over your computer, It would be better off being called iScream. Why they don’t allow DiVX and XViD is beyond me, probably due to some horrible arrangement with Real.

The iScreen is surprisingly small, it measures 5.2 x 3.3 x 1.3 inches and weighs 350g, but lets not forget that it only has a 3.5-inch LCD capable of 320×240 resolution. In the other hand you have the latest Archos AV700, this measures 8.2 x 4.2 x 0.8 inches and is also a 100GB portable video player. However the AV700 has a huge 7-inch LCD and will run you just over US $730. It all depends on how big your pocket is, literally.

The battery in the iScreen PV 330 is a 7.4V 1800mAh rechargeable Li-Ion, it is rated at 4 hours of video playback. Video output is supported by the RCA 3-in-1 input/output connection.
