out of stock of 4gb. ebuyer do a 4gb at £13.51 otherwise (+ postage unless you bring it up to £50) . would have gone for it otherwise

Amazon have had prices at this range and lower for USB sticks for a month or so. Might be worth checking them out if you're after one of these.
#4
would it be a good idea to buy one of these and a 'dvd player' with divx playback & usb capabilities? because i'm sick to death of burning vcd's.

We've done just that. Got the LG DP271 from Argos. It plays divx and DVD/RW and USB memory sticks. Truly flexible. :thumbsup:

That's what I do. Rarely burn DVDs or VCDs any more.

I just put it all on a USB stick and which it through a DVD player which has a USB port.

Now I can watch the 6 x series of Larry Sanders I downloaded.

No flipin

Very interesting.
Do I take it that you are able to RECORD to memory stick, any progs on TV and then play them back at a later stage.
I thought all of these devices only READ FROM USB not wrote to?
Can this be done via remote control? If so that solves a huge problem for me.
Thanks

I think (although I may be wrong) that most people download it onto PC first then transfer it onto USB stick so they can watch on their big TV. That is what I do anyway.

I like the look of the 4gb one, shame it is out of stock.
However, for a pound more there is a 4gb Sandisk one, which is in stock right now:

It looks nicer than the Play one, is by a reliable manufacturer and also appears to by Readyboost ready, which is good for any of us with Vista. :thumbsup:

Dont forget quidco too!

I picked up one of the Ebuyer 4gig USB sticks. They were meant to be USB2, but there's no way in a million years they were. 19 mins to copy a 350meg file?! Sod that!

Avoid those Ebuyer USB sticks. They're terrible!

Mine's gone straight back.

No you cant record to memory stick from any of these devices. You download your movies/ tv shows from the web and copy it to the memory stick and then plug it into your dvd player. As you can reuse the memory stick over and over it saves you money in the long run and saves on lots of unwanted cd's and dvd's lying about the house. I thoroughly recommend doing this. Its quicker than waiting for a cd to burn also.

Alas no, even the DVD recorders that have USB ports don't have the ability to save to PenDrive.

The only way to record directly to a Pendive would be whilst it's plugged in to a PC that has a TV card / Dongle and recording software installed.

People will be downloading programs/films on their PC and transferring onto the Pendrive to watch on the "Big Telly". :p

I was going to buy that...

Then I read the shocking reliability reviews, might just order Dane Elec one.

Yeah I read those too. Appears to just be a single duff batch though. I have had a fair bit of Sandisk stuff in the past and have never had any problems with it.
Ordered one, I'll let you know I have any problems with it!

As mentioned on last page - Amazon have been doing a Buffalo 4gb pen for £13.99. Reviews seem mixed (aren't they always), but for the price it will do me. I can never get my player to recognise the burned discs anyway!

It is mostly good value for money to buy a flash stick that can write at least 5 MBYTES per second. As if you do then 4GB is 4000 MBytes and takes 800 seconds to write which is about quarter of an hour! If you buy one that is unrated it is usually about 1 to 2 Mbytes /s and you are talking about over an hour to fill it up. It is absolutely unacceptable e.g. just when you want to watch a movie and you need to copy a film on the flashstick, a slow flash stick will take nearly half to an hour to copy across which is about the time it takes to watch half a movie in real time!

Over a year's use the slow one will be like watching the paint to dry as you copy! Also if you get one that is fast you also also use it (now or future) to boost your PC performance when running Vista (feature called ReadyBoost).

I would recommend fast flash sticks like Samsung or Dane Elec 4GB from 7dayshop (but watch out for the Samsung make as it seemed to vary in production quality and do a speed test on it, my first one from 7dayshop was quick but not fast as described, I sent it back and got another one which was nearly double the speed compared with the first one and was more close to the rated write speed. Or get Sandisk Cruzer platinum from mymemory.com or if you want cheaper go for the SanDisk Cruzer Micro U3 USB Flash Drive 4GB - Ready Boost which does 5MBytes/s and is a great price from play.com as stated by someone before on this thread. One word about mymemory.com is that their service is fast. I ordered on Boxing Day 26th , ordered was processed on 27th and the goods arrived from Jersey on the 28th! Astonishing! In principle for a 4GB stick worth payment extra £5 for the fast speed compared with the sloooww ones.

Pioneer DV400 or DV600 between £60 to £120 (the DV600 offer more features but these features are not used by 95% of the buyers however, the DV600 has better electronic components for the output stage which means that the hi-fi buff may like to match up with their hi-fi system). For cheaper deals then go for Philips DVP5960 (1080i , fine for 32" or below LCD) or DVP5980 (1080p so great if you have 40" or above LCD) between £40 to £60 which is great for budget buy. For high end it is the Toshiba XE1 and E1 for over £250 but these have two USB ports which they call Extension Ports but no firmware yet to make use of these two ports! Samsung are also good, not sure which model does USB connectors.

I have the Pioneer DV600 for £119 at Richer Sounds and it upscales really well , fabulous colours and great when upscaled to 1080p on a 40" LCD. I use it with a USB flash stick and watch moves using subtitles in .srt, sub, etc. formats.
