Boffer BOC - I got one of these, what is it and what do i plug into it . . . .

FleaBay Item Number (not mine, it looks the same though) - 390030480283

I gather you plug storage devices into it and it plays onto a tv - but what devices and how??? Is it worth keeping! lol

If it is the same thing as on ebay, you plug a hard drive or memory card into it so you can watch downloaded porn on your tv.

Not sure mate...

Just i need something to play movies from usb onto my tv

If you are very lucky it may have a HDD inside, they did sell them with and without a HDD.

They get mixed reviews though the file system is a bit quirky to use especially with .vob files, but are OK with .avi, DivX, MP4 etc. If I remember correctly they have to be formatted to Fat32.

Don't think so, its pretty light so assume its just the caddy . . . .

What do you think value wise barneydog?

I may keep it and buy a sata drive for it - saves me using my 360 and usb sticks as my media player downstairs . . . lol

For the value the few places that are still selling these are charging £45 - £50 which is expensive as you can buy the replacement model for the Zengo, the ]Cyclone for £40 + P&P, so I would say it's worth £30.


Me personally I would keep it, you could use it as a media drive or just a normal USB external hard drive.

Like I said before, if using it as a media drive I think you have to format the HDD as Fat32, but if you are using it as a external HDD I,m not sure if this applies.
