First Look: Elgato Systems EyeTV 250 TV Receiver/Recorder and Video Converter

Updated

Similar to the EyeTV 200 we previously checked out, Elgato’s new EyeTV 250 is considerably cheaper ($200), physically smaller – the same footprint as a full-sized iPod, but twice as thick as the thickest iPod models – and still capable of running with the EyeTV 2 software we reviewed before. The EyeTV 250 uses USB 2.0 rather than FireWire for its connection to a Macintosh computer, and cosmetically matches the white plastic and aluminum bodies of Mac minis. A large black remote control is also included in the package.
