If there's one thing we love about technology today, it has to be the introduction of "on-your-time" television watching (aka DVR or digital video recording) into our living rooms. However, not everyone wants to pay a subscription fee every month just to be able to enjoy the benefits of DVR. Those who aren't interested in building a media center PC may want to check out Digeo's Moxi, a long-awaited HD-DVR coming officially to CES in a month. The 500GB monster features an attractive interface, no subscription fees (unlike Tivo), and allows you to record all the HD you want until you run out of room. This equates to about 65 HD hours or let's see... 600 hours of SD television? Yeah, that's a lot of TV - even by our standards.
The HD-DVR also manages whip out the ability to play music, display photos, and even has a game arcade if you really want to play games with your remote controller (hey, we understand - it's the poor man's Wii).
Since the product has not officially launched just yet, it may be worth it to just wait for our impressions at CES before dishing out $799. Unless you've been completely recession proof (oh you bad boy, you), we'd say just hold off until we get out grimy hands on it first.
Otherwise, feel free to place an order for it on Amazon for $799 shipped. Compared to Tivo's box, that's kind of like the $300 lifetime subscription and $300 for the hardware. We'll just have to wait and see if the Moxi box performs as well or better yet, even better than the cheaper alternatives we have today for HD digital video recording.
