Buffalo Intros New Portable HDDs for Recording TV

Buffalo Japan released two new lines of portable HDDs to the market, that are capable of recording TV (compatible with DTV specifications), without needing a set-top DVR. The drives feature LSI-made native transcoders that record TV programs as they're streamed on to a recording format and quality-setting of your choice, which can later be transferred to the dozen-HDD data reservoir on your PC.

Launched today are the HDX-PNU2/V, a 2.5-inch drive that come with TV-mounting kits that let you mount them on to TVs' VESA mount (through its holes or through a stand that attaches the TV to the wall); and the HDX-LSU2/V, a 3.5-incher that lazes around on a table-top. The HDX-PNU2/V is available in capacities of 500 GB and 1 TB, priced at 13,800 JPY (US $175) street-price and US $149 manufacturer-price, (street-price will be way higher), respectively; while the HDX-LSU2/V is available in 1 TB, 2 TB, and 3 TB models, priced at priced at 13,800 JPY (US $175) street-price, US $149 manufacturer-price, and 22,800 JPY (US $289), respectively. The drives connect to a PC over USB 2.0, and draw power over an AC adapter when connected to a TV.
