The new Sony Nasne tuner and media device, sort of looks like a miniature PlayStation 3. However, don’t let the aesthetics fool you: Nasne contains many features the game console lacks, such as a built-in 1TB hard drive for recording content from digital terrestrial or satellite TV broadcasts.
Perhaps the biggest draw (at least to Sony aficionados) resides in the ability to simultaneously watch live or recorded TV content from Nasne on up to two Sony products within the same home network. Supported devices include the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Vaio computers, and Sony’s Tablet and Xperia product lines. The oddly named media hub also serves as a generic DLNA-compatible storage device for photos, videos, and music — with the option to expand space by connecting an external hard drive via the USB port in the rear.
