I am very tempted by this

Its a fantastic drive, but its been this price for months.

Put it up as I think people are getting a bit ripped off buying the Sony Bluray drive which is 3 times slower and doesn't have HD dvd compatiblility. For a fiver more this has got to be better

Scan is a rip off for p&p.

Go get involved in the excellent AVForums.co.uk site and Scan will waive the delivery. Win, and indeed, Win.

Oh and the drive is great - for £5 more it's a great way to gain access to cheap HDDVDs which technically speaking (i.e. the ones usng VC1 codecs) are the same as Blu Ray.

Why are standalone players still so much though?

I wouldn't say £160 is too much

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-BDPS350-Blu-ray-Player-1080p/dp/B001DN1SP4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1229107815&sr=8-3

This time last year these players were in the £400 price range.

Because Sony charges a licence fee of $30 for each player a manufacturer makes.
#12
I would unless your getting 10 blu's with it.

But for how much longer now that the £ is plummeting against the $?

Does one need a top spec pc to run HD and Blu Ray or can one get a graphics card to do the hd decoding which what with the size of the files I imagine is quite intense on the cpu. I've only got a three year old celeron in my pc, which I can't imagine would cope with the decoding on it's own?

No it wont cope, not even with the graphics card.

You really need at least a dual core to be able to watch hidef, alongside a graphics card with onboard HD acceleration.

PC only, but you can connect the PC to the TV etc.
#18
For a PC only, youll need a good graphics card to play the films back aswell.

On a side note, I also read that sony will be putting the price of its goods up due to the low pound value as there not making as much out of us as the rest of europe so watch out for that peeps.

I stopped buying any product that I know is made by sony last year. Everything ive ever owned made by sony from being about 16 has broke down too quickly in my eyes, so never again.

That Celeron would most likely not cope with HD material, no, however with today's GPU's and the right software (PowerDVD 7 and up) you won't need an overly powerful CPU or an expensive graphics card either. ATi cards from the 2xxx series (mid and low range only, high range won't do it for the 2xxx), 3xxx series and 4xxx (entire 3xxx and 4xxx range) series will decode via the GPU leaving the CPU to do virtually nothing at all except run the background processes. The 4xxx's will decode 2 at once apparently; don't know why you would want to mind you. I forget where the NVIDIA range of GPU's started decoding blu-rays; the 8xxx series maybe? Might have been lower? But even a HD2400XT card which can be had for less than £30 will do. But it is dependent on the right software, of which I only know of PowerDVD 7 and up. Again, there might be others but I don't (personally) know of any other software that will access the GPU for decoding Blu-ray or other HD material.

Spend a fortune over the past few years on parts for your private business and we'll rip you off for postage, just to say thanks for letting buying with us!

I'll not even go into the AV Forums fiasco of "it was abused" ****!
Methos.

Does this have HDMI connection so that you can connect direct to a monitor or TV?

jamba

Why would it, its a PC Drive. You use your graphics card to connect to the TV.

No offence but what are you actually using to post this reply?. That is what this drive goes in. :)

got free delivery from Scan for being an "active" member on AVForums (a great forum btw).

Cheers for the replies guys, perhaps this will finally give me the push to build myself a media pc, but of course in the spirit of HotUkDeals it'll have to be on a super small budget!

Except its probably stolen.. or misnamed.. and costs 7quid to post..

Scan sold me a pioneer dvd-rw back when they cost £145 which I had problems with and was confirmed as stolen from a Dell shipment when i asked pioneer for support.

They also mislead you with the titles and deliver alternative products claiming they are from the same manufacturer so are the same specification..

After those two incidents ive never used scam again..

(id forgotten the third incident which prompted my anger.. they opened up us kiss dvd players.. fiddled with the psus and sold them as uk ones.. complete with a photocopied uk manual and tampered warranty sticker.. again after months of complaining to them aout it they at least agreed they would cover costs of fixing it if it needed it since the warranty was voided.)

Useless useless company, and the less said about thier customer service agents the better.
