takeMS MediaStation Review

Admin Multimedia Devices 849

Today I’m going to write about the latest product from takeMS – MediaStation easy. Lately we had the opportunity to write about products from IT components market (like USB drives, storage, memory and graphic cards). This is our first article in home entertainment category so we have the opportunity to test takeMS solution for home media player.

MediaStation easy is the first product from takeMS in this category, although I’ve seen prototypes of this product at CeBIT 2009. It seems that this product is the first one of many to come from takeMS in home entertainment category.

O.K. then after such long introduction, let’s start to write about this MediaStation. I just wanted to add that this is my first article that I’m writing about some home entertainment device, and I’m very much excited about this.

Consumer Experience - 9


With the price around 40 Euros, I think it cannot be better then this. In the future things will only be better, since takeMS is working on MediaStation with HD support, so you can play High-Definition movies and other multimedia containers (like Matroska) on this new device. Not to mention LAN support and several other things. I can only say that I cannot wait for this new product to be introduced to the market.
