[SIZE=2]Seems an ok deal...not as good as the Maxtor 320gb for £44.99....but it looks a hell of a lot nicer![/SIZE]

Will this drive work with the USB port on the front of DVD Players (Philips DVP-5960)?

I'm sure costco were flogging these at 60 quid the other month.

Rather spend £7 more on the Maxtor and get an extra 70gb!

You can use this on the dvd player but it will only work as usb 1.0 so a large film may judder. Also you will need to format into fat32. This only allows 32gb of hard drive to be used by dvd players so remaing will need to be partioned and used on your pc or laptop as a normal hard drive. Hope this helps.

Dont forget guys this is powered by a bulky power connector as opposed to USB power!

This will be better for use with the dvd player then as it will not require too much power from the usb on the dvd player.

this makes no sense at all i own a 5690 and simply dump the avi files on the drive and plug and play on the machine , its that simple.

Shall i get this or the maxtor? I wanted a network capable one

Do you use an external hard drive or is it a pen drive?

Was just about to get one of these when i spotted a 250GB Lacie Porsche drive on saverstore.com for £47.99 (i.e. £37.99 with google checkout). Which is better? Toshiba or Lacie??! The Lacie looks smarter...

but with delivery it works out a little more expensive.

thoughts??

If you are happy shopping at Saverstore, they do have a habit of going bust.

Formerly Savastore, now in receivership.:whistling:

Personally I would stick with eBuyer.

Great deal, bought the maxtor but prefer this one, more pleasing to eye.

The Lacie now appears to be out of stock at Saverstore, and as you say, there's postage to pay on top of it when it is back in stock, which makes it around £5 more expensive than the Toshiba. If you're willing to pay that bit extra, you can get an extra 70GB by taking the Maxtor deal from eBuyer (posted yesterday). Other than that, their tech specs are almost identical.

Also, whilst eBuyer doesn't have the best of reputations, they certainly have a more reliable rep than Saverstore!

FWIW, I would say that the Toshiba one is the nicer looking.

Now out of stock and up to £65, I'm afraid.

26 in stock at original price, good old ebuyer. un-expired.

Delivered today. Looks very nice and takes up very little room on the desktop, despite being larger than I expected. No problems setting the unit up; nice and simple. Only complaint is the bundled Regen backup software, which isn't the most user friendly program ever.

Still, for £38, I'm not complaining...
