Magnetox V120 mini video recorder unveiled


Taiwanese manufactuer Magnetox (no relatation to Magnavox, although we're not sure if they want you to think that) has unveiled their mini video recorder the V120 at the Computex trade show, although unlike most other video recorders, it does't contain any storage itself. Instead, it runs off whatever spare capacity you've got on your SD card, or you can attach a USB hard drive and record to it via the AV or tuner inputs; both making it easy to move your shows around. It supports the usual formats, including MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, MP3, AAC, WMA, and AC3, but while pricing isn't available, The Inq guesstimates that it'll be around $199 by the time it reaches the market, which is expected to be sometime before the end of the year in countries probably other than the one in which you reside.
