    I'm wondering what people need all these hard drives for? I don't even usse my computer's memory and store all my files on a 1GB memory stick, which holds all my education as well as work documents all of which I use and add to everyday. It's not even half full.

    Anybody enter the promo code ILOVEPAYPAL at checkout and successfuly received the electric power duster with this offer!?

    Hey on the topic of external hdds, you can always make a good deal yourself. I went to MSY yesterday and bought a 640GB Western Digital HDD for $105. I then paid for a $30 hdd enclosure (better than the cheapo ones) Went home, slotted the HDD into the enclosure, and for $135 i was ready to roll. Depends on whether you guys want to go thru the trouble of putting the two together, but it gives a lot of flexibility and lets u mix and match a bit. There are even some enclosures that play divx/mp3/etc directly from the HDD (ie: has audio/video output jacks, to plug sttraight into the tv!) My 2 cents.. :)

    can you point me in the direction of one of those enclosures, IMO it would be better than an apple TV!

    http://www.shoppingsquare.com.au/p_4009_MCDIA_35_SATA_EXTERNAL_STORAGE_MEDIA_PLAYER something like that. There are a few on shoppingsquare. Whether it's any good however :/

    MEDIAGATE comes in the wired and wireless variety also, just noticed something called popcorn hour which will cost you appx 250 shipped to australia (from overseas) that seems to be a nice option

    It should be pretty simple I'd have thought - open box, plug cable in, close box - do you need to set the master / slave on the HDD any more or am I living in the dark ages? $135 for a 640gig external is very good.
  • aankur
    i didnt set any master/slave etc .. just opened the case, plugged it into the hard drive, and closed the case ... was very simple to do and i think it works out quite cheap. works like a charm :) the only downside on these bigger ones is u need to plug it into a power point ... unlike the smaller 100gb ones where the usb power is enuff to keep it going.

What do you think?
