Sound like a great bit of kit for someone with a small or fairly static media library.

Pity is doesn't have an ethernet port & UPnP player built in...would have been a lot more useful to me personally.

It hasn't got a turntable or cassette deck built in either!
You are looking completely at the wrong sort of kit, it is a NAS drive you want. Not even sure if a reputable media player version of a NAS drive even exists, certainly I haven't seen one while I have been looking for NAS. Some unknown name versions available from the likes of eBay, but it seems a bit pointless, NAS is for fixed setups, streaming to a media renderer, whereas a media player HD is for portability, taking stuff TO a TV for example!

You don't know what I want, and you're not adding to anyone's experience here...no one is going to find your post helpful, it's just sarcastic and redundant.

My initial comment was that this looks like a great piece of kit (codec support looks especially good) and that I'm sure it's going to be useful for someone looking for a mobile hard drive player like this.

That doesn't happen to be me for previously stated reasons, but does that mean I shouldn't post my (actually complimentary) opinion? (that's a rhetorical question by the way ;-))

I find heavy use of ignore, done at the earliest opportunity the best policy, just in case I am tempted to care! ;-)

Bit OTT - asking for an ethernet port would suggest a NAS is what you want - did you consider he was trying to help?

It wasn't helpful though, and it was worded quite aggressively.

I didn't mention anything to do with network storage requirements, my comment was about possibly networking this unit (because of it's good codec support) for the purpose of a UPnP player on the network...which is in no way the same as a NAS.

This guy clearly took offence for some strange unknown reason (his time of the month perhaps?) and decided to hit back at me with sarcasm, shouting (i.e. upper case words), exclamation marks and presumptions about what I want or need.

He can take his 'helpfulness' elsewhere if that's the way he provides it. I was actually complimentary about the post and in no way deserve to be heckled simply because I left a comment. He clearly doesn't understand the positive connotations behind the word "community".

Decided to buy one. For some strange and unknown reason postage thru the pixmania website is £8.70, but if you buy it via the Amazon web site, but still from pixmania the postage is only £6.56. Go figure.
I need a new hard drive to store DVD's anyway and this seems to be a faily cheap way of trying out multimedia hard drives. If it gets too complicated at the end of the day I still have a 500gb hard drive.
