CES: At the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show, iLuv will be introducing the iLuv i1255, a cool desktop iPod/DVD player that is expected to sell for around $130.

  • Plays music from audio CDs, MP3 CDs and docked iPods
  • Remote
  • Dock adapters for a variety of iPod models
  • Video out lets you view iPod video on-screen
  • On-screen navigation
  • DVD player supports DVD, VCD, MP3 CD, Audio CD, JPEG CD, and Kodak Picture CD

The i1255 doesn’t offer the sexy wireless syncing of something like Apple TV, but offers DVD playback, which is cool, and gives you the sneakerware way of getting your iTunes media onto your stereo or TV. It looks like it could be a great option of turning an extra TV into a new media center.
The iLuv i1255 is expected to ship in March.

  1. No DivX support? No HD upconverting? Bleah. Give me an upconverting DVD player with a USB slot and support for DivX and H.264. Podcast support is a cheap flash drive with PodcastReady on it.

    I’m liking this for $130, and it would get rid of the need for an extra box on the TV.

    If you could rip DVDs to it, it would kick ass.

    In the upgrade version of DVD Copy for Mac, we add Copy DVD to DVD player Media on Mac. If you choose to copy your DVD as DVD Player Media, you can directly play the output media file with Apple DVD player .
