The Samsung HomeSync is a home media server with 1TB of storage. You can set it up by your TV and use it to play videos from the hard drive on your TV. You can also use it backup and sync data from your Samsung phones or tablets, or stream content from your mobile device to your TV.

Samsung introduced the HomeSync earlier this year, and now it’s scheduled to go on sale in the US starting October 6th. It’ll cost $299.

That’s more than 8 times as expensive as a Chromecast, Google’s simple device that lets you stream audio and video content to your TV. But Samsung’s HomeSync can do a lot more than a Chromecast… as long as you’re using it with a Samsung phone or tablet.

Here’s some of what the HomeSync can do:

  • Backup photos, videos, music, and other data from your mobile devices.
  • Create up to 8 separate user accounts for synchronizing and shareing your data.
  • Use your phone or tablet as a remote control for your TV, using the touchscreen as a mouse and the on-screen keyboard to type.
  • Stream content from your Samsung Galaxy device to your TV in real-time to display photos, videos, and other content.

Samsung says the HomeSync will be available from Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg and the Samsung web store.

Customers who buy a $299 HomeSync will also get $50 to spend on digital content from Samsung’s MediaHub store.

  1. 1tb hdd = $60, low-end fox-conn AMD APU system = $200, memory stick = $20.. ~ Windows for cheaper than Android.. All in all this is not a good price for this device, I think. No mention of Android version either. No mention of ports on the thing. No mention of wifi, bluetooth, NFC, etc. What gives? User accounts are part of Android 4.3+, so are we to assume this has 4.3? C’mon guys, don’t post drivel, we want specs, and pics of the insides, and it in action..etc.

  2. Nothing more than an ANDROID device + 1TB Hard Drive…and it costs $299US?
