A good price on a good product from a reputable retailer. What more could you ask for? (More than 20GB of space maybe?)

Don't forget 3% from quidco

Has anyone seen this IRL? In particular, is the screen any good?

My sister wants something to show clients photos of her products/designs and was looking at this or the Archos 700 but I said that she should go for the PSP or a portable DVD player as they are a lot cheaper. Any one got any input, ideas or alternatives?

Thanks in advance!

Tell her to go ahead and buy it - it is a fantastic wee bit of kit. I bought one about 18 months ago (@£330) and love it. Screen size is great, picture quality superb. Comes with TV cradle/remote control.

Good price. Worth considering that several new models are about to come on the market, prices may drop quite rapidly in the near future.

CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK.

I spent that much time researching this on the 'net that I missed out - not back in stock for another 28 days and it won't let me order one....

Gutted.

Great find!! worth the wait

Amazon have some at £194.99 delivered.

Koomey

Really out of stock? I'm not registered with tesco.com, but have followed the link, and says in stock :roll:

When you go to purchase it lets you put your card details in etc, but then says you have to remove the item from the basket as it's out of stock.

The checkout will seem as though it will let you buy until the last minute... :confused:

Seems as though you cannot order unless it is in stock.

Koomey

That's not nice Koomey
Might be, once you're at that stage, they have your details; one more to the database.....shame on them!

Original Poster

its my 4th post and got on the main page. yeehaaaaaa

by the way i another one after i posted the advert and it went through no problem.

PK.


p.s :grin: Some Tesco extra stores have them instock also at this price.

Well after doing much research into the early hours I managed to locate the 100GB model through eBay - new at £259.

The 20GB version deffo seems the business but for what I'll be using it for I've plumped for the 100GB version - cannot wait!

Thanks again HDUK for making me spend money!!

Koomey

My AV4100 has arrived!

I bough the 100GB version from eBay for £269 + £9 delivery. It came direct from Germany to my home address (NE England) in 2 days!!

From wat I've seen so far this gadget is great - you can record direct from TV, store movies, mp3's and photo's.

Anyone who's into gadgets just has to have one of these!

Koomey

Please remember to leave reputation for all posts that deserve it, as well as voting on every deal too Thanks!
