Samsung's HomeSync took a while to hit store shelves, and it isn't exactly the type of product people needed to hold their breath for. It primarily allows users to stream content from their Samsung Galaxy devices to their televisions, but it can also store music and games on its internal hard drive. It's cool, but there are already numerous ways of doing this, and judging from Amazon consumer reviews, this may not be one of the better ones.
