I purchased 2x of them the other day during my lunch hour and the work really well and do the job just nicely. It blends in amongst my xbox and looks no where near odd due to it's small size and polished a-like surface. One of my pals paid £150 for a product similar to this the only difference was he had an LCD display oposed to mine but suppose thats what you get when you buy rhapsody. But overall performs really well with my 750GB Seagate, Over all I rate this 7/10 for features, 9/10 for value for money.

my bad thought I direct linked it. Would you mind fixing it ?
Thanks

not a bad price, but no component, DVI, or HDMI connections, no coaxial or digital audio out either. useless to me.

rapody is a lot better connection wise. I'd rate this 3/10 for features, 9/10 for value.

bought a similar one to this a few months ago and cant seem to get it to format the hard drive for use in it, wont connect to the pc as a usb drive and fails with each hd I use, anyone any ideas
#7
It connects using VGA so you will need a TV with a VGA cable and even then, the max res is only 640*480 so i wouldnt really call it an HD player


@Skembear, Are you formatting yours as NTFS or FAT32? The FAQ says:

Q) If I want to put a drive that''s been formatted with NTFS and with all my photos on it, will it work in this drive, to show them on TV? - Marios
A) Needs to be formatted as Fat32, NTFS is not supported.

Bought myself one of these off eBay last week, they go for around £15-£25 inc postage, probably graded stock but mine looked new - and they are great for what they do, playing divx/xvid files/mp3's etc - if you are having issues with the hard drive it does need set to Master & formatting to fat 32, which can be a painful if u run Vista, but most hdd manufacturers have downloadable software to return the hdd to it's original fat 32 state (WD & Seagate do anyway) - the unit itself is very well made but it's little fan is LOUD, I disconnected mine and is now silent (apart from hdd clicks) it doesn't run too hot to cause any problems either, had it running for 8 hours continually with no problems.

To sum up, great if u want to play material you have as in my case hours & hours of old divx converted TV comedy shows without cranking up the PC of messing around with stored DVD-R's in a Divx DVD player, no good if u want to watch High Def stuff on it.

Re an earlier comment; it can connect via VGA yes but it also connects to your TV via composite (AV), leads inc.

It is not an HD (High Definition) player please change the title to HDD (hard disk drive) as it is misleading.
#10
True, it aint a High Definition player by any stretch of the imagination even if the item does have "Multimedia HD Player" printed on it/advertising/box.

Don't suppose anyone has an idea who manufactures these units? there's no clues on the packaging, I was just wondering if there's a firmware update knocking around was all.
#11
I belive its made by sumvision, the remote looks very similar. I dont think they have firmware updates on their site but while since i looked.

I bought a zengo last week. Same sort of product but it has AV recording and a cd/cf card slot. Very impressed with it so far though Im not using it for the normal purpose.

They also make another one for about £30 that is the same except no recording, called the aqua.
