that is a deal and a half! Effectively 6 copies of the film for £10! BARGAIN! Heat added!

Great price considering the best for the DVD is just a penny cheaper (Amazon). Nice find.

There's also a transformers one, only seen it in hmv tho.

once you burn it on dvd can you play it as many devices as you want

One thing to note is that the usb stick is made from a thick billet of metal. It's unbelievable heavy - you could use it as a knuckle-duster!

Worth it for this, IMO. Voted hot.

Class! Could this be burnt to Blue Ray with the same quality?

Would you trust Play to package this properly so it didn't get damaged in transit ?

Not exactly sensitive goods :thumbsup:

I would have got this if I hadn't bought it on Blinkbox for £1.99. Still need to watch it though :P. Heat added!

It's a huge chunk of metal around a solid state memory stick!!

But yes Play will probably manage to damage it.

If you want to watch this excruciatingly brainless film I guess this is an excellent way of buying it...
Hot for the deal, Cold for the film.

Nice, I've been saying the move to movies on USB is coming.

CDs & DVDs will be on their way out.

Good deal!

What is there to stop you viewing this more than six times, other than the morality police?

Also, this is a great deal IMO.
Worth it just for the nerdy usb stick.

Blue Ray ?

4GB wil not even give you full DVD quality - this is one crap deal !

Nice, I was tempted when it was £15 but will get it for £10.

It's five copies it's limited to. You can watch each copy any number of times you want.

Any film with R2-D2 in it has got to be good.

From Play.com "Film supplied on a 4GB USB stick, of which about 1GB is taken up by the film" - so you saying the movie aint even DVD quality ?

Also, anyone know if you can delete everything off the stick once you have finished copying the movie off? or is it one of those annoying ones that pops up with something whenever you insert it, and you cant do anything about it?

These were a limited run and I have already bought 2.
1 to keep (yes nerd) and 1 that I watch on my PS3. The Transformers one is Plastic but also from a limited run.

DVDs are 4.7gb (or 9.4gb for dual layer) because they use mpeg-2, which is really an out of date format.

The fact that this is DivX means that the compression algorithm will allow for a smaller filesize, however if 1gb is right then the quality of this won't be as "good" as DVD. I think the physical stick is pretty neat, however I wouldn't be satisfied with the picture quality of the film.

Good Price, Nice heavy Chrome USB stick, Film quality ok but not blu-ray quality, ok for pc size screen.
You first need to register a DIVX account & enter the code before you can play it. Worth it for the for the stick alone.

Does the USB contain the software to write to a DVD?

ace find, thanks very much. Dont need it but have to have it! Heat and rep added

So what you get is a low DIVX version of the film, wrapped in DRM that requires you to 'license' devices it plays on (what does that even mean? register with who/what/where?), wrapped in a shiny package and sold for the same price as the DVD. The DVD which you can stick in any computer and play without worrying about 'licensing', easily watch on TV by way of one of those DVD player things and trivially rip in to any format/quality you want. The DVD is more convenient, more flexible and costs the same. So you'd buy this USB thing because...

It's the marketing guys who are [COLOR="Red"]not[/COLOR] clueless !

To be fair the USB stick itself is worth, what, £5?

I guess the drm doesn't tie it to the USB stick itself, so you should be able to move the divx off the USB stick onto a HDD?

There are a number of Star Trek 2009 DVDrips floating around, typically between 900mb & 1.3gb; so while this version isn't going to be as good as the mpeg found on a physical DVD copy, it should be comparable with the pirate DVDrips you can get a hold of.
Ofcourse, most people who pirate movies have moved onto 720p rips taken from bluray.... as all the money they avoid paying to hollywood goes into their HDTV fund =D

720p rips can be found around 1.5-2gb in size, so im guessing a lot of people would rather go for much better quality than a dvd, if it means waiting around a little longer for it to download.

1080p all the way though :thumbsup:
