What is the difference between this and the So Speaky PVR?

Edit: Wireless capability!

Looks like an interesting device... but £200 is still a heap of cash. Maybe £100-£150 & it would seem a reasonable price, but I certainly wouldn't wish to spend the original price of £249.99.

Not sure if this is a good price as I've not seen these anywhere else; so no heat added/subtracted until I do.

However, the product is titled "Dane-Elec So Smart PVR - Wireless Multimedia Hard Disk Player & Video Recorder 1TB", yet the warning at the bottom of the product page states "WARNING : DO NOT FORMAT YOUR SO SPEAKY HARD DRIVE ! IF YOU FORMAT SO SPEAKY IN NTFS, YOU'LL MAKE IT UNUSABLE ANYMORE AND IT WILL NOT BE COVERED BY THE WARRANTY."

If you are considering purchasing the product it maybe be worth confirming the specification is as you expect in case other copy'n'paste errors have crept into the listing.



Nothing special about price, it is just pennies dearer at Expansys.

Interesting gear, but very little info around :-(
