The product:



At the front a small Raidsonic logo is located in the down right corner, as well as a transparent line which lights up blue when powered on. This also functions as a harddrive activity indicator and remote control indicator.



At the back all the important connections is placed. Moving from left to right we see the following: on/off button, DC12V input, HDMI connection, SPDIF connection for optical cables, USB 2.0 and a small 20mm fan. Pretty much all you need.



Besides that, a small remote is bundled, making it possible to navigate the menus. This only requires a bundled small mercury battery, which means that the remote is very thin.



The remotes build quality is ok, but the small and hard buttons is a bit stressing in the long run.

Moving on to the installation. The only thing you need to do is to place your harddrive in the box, connect two cables and lastly tighten the harddrive down with screws. Can’t be much simpler.

After installing the HDD and connecting the power, the harddrive and fan slowly begin to spin. Both doesn’t make much noise, and will without a doubt be dominated by the TV’s sound. Everything isn’t all good though, because when I tried powering off the harddrive trough the remote control, nothing really happened except the machine going into some kind of standby.

Unfortunately both the blue light and small 20mm fan kept running even though I’d tried powering off via the remote control. This is disappointing because you have to power off the Icy box at the back to turn off the blue light and fan completely.

The test:
To get started you need to connect the harddrive to the Pc via the USB connection in the Pc. When this is done, the box pops up as an external drive, and the only thing you need to do to make it work is to create 4 folders: Movies, Music, Pictures and settings. After that everything works like it’s supposed to, and you’re ready to transfer your movies and music to the harddrive.

The Icy Box Media Player also functions as a media player with integrated software for movie, music and picture playback on the TV. Therefore I’ve chosen to look at this software. As mentioned before, the media player can be connected to the TV with the bundled scart or S-video cable. Both are at the bottom of the “food chain”.
