EDIT
This new lower price is great just for a DVD/TV combo, wish I had the cash to get one.


Get it all with the Icebox TV/DVD/CD combo with remote and wireless keyboard.

The Icebox combo features a 9-inch screen that displays the Internet, TV, DVDs, CDs, or even acts as a security monitor. If you have Internet access, you can hook it up to the Icebox unit and access it from your kitchen! The space-conscious Icebox takes up very little room and provides high-quality TV viewing. Watch your favorite DVD movies or listen to music CDs while you work and play. Connect the Icebox to an audio/video camera and it will act as your eyes to any room in the house. A kitchen-proof remote and keyboard is perfect for the family. It's washable, grease-proof, and shock-proof.

9-inch screen
Internet ready
DVD player
CD player
Cable-ready TV
Security monitoring

More info on Icebox

Edit by Moderator: Thank you for participating in the forums. However, this topic has been covered in a recent post Here.

cool!

Looks like a really interesting device. I wish the description had a little more info - like I noticed it has a printer port, I wonder if it has a hard drive and if you can install an OS on it. I wonder what it uses to browse the internet too. The other drawback is it has a modem but no ethernet connector for broadband users. Still, could be really cool for some people.

The picture shows a Windows "start menu", so I'm assumming it has a hard drive..

Looks nice if you have need of a small TV/computer..

I saw these at the 2002 CES show. The newer one has an LCD flip screen. It was pitched as an internet kitchen tv that allows you to access online recipes and stuff.

Kind of cool.

: Targeted specifically for kitchen applications--includes Internet and entertainment. IceBox includes 125-channel television tuner, DVD and CD player, 9-inch CRT, ports for external video cameras (optional), and internal 56K modem. Comes with washable and greaseproof keyboard and remote. Can use any ISP that doesn't require downloading software. Does not work on home networks.

Device looks real cool. I hope the next generation has home networking/Wireless support instead of a 56K modem. Then i'd be real tempted to buy one.

10% off coupon Link makes it even hotter (198$).

I read on the Icebox site that it has two PCMCIA slots so you could put in a wireless network card or Ethernet card. Hmm, does the one on overstock have the slots? I wonder if it runs some kind of Windows CE?

Looks like they go for about $220 + shipping on eBay.

The new units look cool, except for the $2300 price tag

Don't forget to use Ebates for an extra 4%

Combine the 10% off link
(in previous message) by entering overstock.com via the 10% link

Add the item to your cart ..

Then enter overstock.com via Ebates or FatCash links and checkout ..

I just called customer service- The older version can not be used with anything but dial-up. ( Does anyone know if there is a product to convert cable/broadband to a telephone cable?)
The O/S is VX Works by SunRiver Systems
The browser is a custom version of Spyglass Device Mosaic Browser version 4.1

Hope this helps.

I did some searching to see if this was easily hackable like some other IAs, but I didn't come up with anything. Does anyone else have any info?

WHEW... it IS grease-proof, I was worried BIGTIME.

I don't have a whole lot of luck with overstock.. I've received refurbs before without ANY notice that they were when originally ordered. YMMV.

my .02... looks like a nice unit though, especially if you're a wanna-be chef.

cool, but dialup = major negative aspect

I'd pay $49 for it, but not $219 or $198

A 9" TV and DVD player combo alone is going to cost close to $200, so this isn't a bad deal. I just wish there was some way to get around the dial-up only internet connection.

actually this is a pretty awesome deal. this one does have 2 pcmcia slot type 2 on it for wireless support .

I really was hoping IceBox meant a little Fridge too - I'm really serious it would be sweet an all in one appliance.


reduced to $189.99

Does anyone actually own one of these Icebox units (NOT with the LCD display) and can report on the quality of the picture & performance of the machine??

Looks like it has Windows CE .NET per this MS article.

You need a presspass to read that article, please highlight main portions.
Secondly, I doubt this older one has Win CE .NET, maybe the newer $2300 one does.

Price is still coming down, maybe 50 bucks before much longer!!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

The older CRT uses WindRiver VxWorks and the OpenTV browser. PDF

note that everything is in firmware, you're SOL if you want to install additional plug-ins, like the PDF linked above.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0>

Doesnt look like this model has pcmia slots.Heres a thought...hook it up to a cell phone and have a internt access in your car!Anyone bought this yet with some actual user feedback?

The price on this had fallen to $169.90 and I was almost ready to make the buy (I was waiting for one more price cut), but I see today the price has jumped to $249.90. Has anyone actually bought one of these units??

Is there a mouse port on the icebox?

bumping for lower price
looks like there's a coupon out there for another $10 off.

The coupon link isn't working for me.
