Recieved the details of this in an email from Expansys. Its a friday deal and only applies from 11am to 4pm. Not sure how much of a bargain it is but plays mkv files as well as the usual divx etc. Needs the addition of an external USB drive but looks like a good replacement for a media centre

£79.99 delivered at amazon.
too much... great unit though!
Sorry, had to vote cold.

Great product, but can be found cheaper elsewhere.
PC World have a 'web exclusive' price of £79.99 which is also available for collect at store. Postage would apply if you chose to have it delivered though.
£79.99 at play.com, plus quidco cashback.
Is a good unit, but the 5m HDMI cable is no great extra, we all know how cheap you can pick them up for on here
Ah well as I said no idea if this was a bargain or not
