Do you have hundreds of DVDs, Blu-Rays and CDs filling up your house? Do you want to use them but don’t want them cluttering up your living room? It sounds like you need a media drive.
A media drive is basically an external hard drive which connects to your TV and lets you play content on your screen and through your home entertainment system. All you need to do is upload your music and movies from your laptop or Mac/PC straight onto the drive.
Once all your content is on there, you can file it in different folders if you want, such as putting an entire TV series together, or all the albums by a single band in one folder, and then you’re ready to go.
Lots of media drives have an HDMI connection, so even if you want to store your Blu-Ray discs, you get the full high definition quality you paid for.
Most come with a remote control, so once you’re set up, you just sit back on the sofa and use your media drive just like a Sky+ planner. Your entire music and movie collection can be ready whenever you are, all at the touch of a button and all held on one small box.
You can buy media drives with 2TB of memory, and some even have wireless functionality so you can store your entire media collection and connect with the drive from anywhere in the house.
