    you missed it was £29.99 like 10mins ago

    It's a pain in the neck getting the 360 drive working with a PC, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Not at all. It's plug and play if you have the media player software already, such as Quickplay on HP laptops. You do need a machine with quite good specs though, as the playback is extremely processor intensive.

    While I have machines with high specs I've had all manner of problems with the software and HDCP, reading around it's not just me.

    Yeah cracking the HDCP is a pain in the ass but if you have a good enough graphics card plus LCD monitor it's no problems. I lack the good enough LCD monitor some how though.
