    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!?
  • aankur2008/06/12 17:33:14
    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!
  • lavenderpup2008/06/12 23:17:24
    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 :/
  • bigal2008/06/13 08:45:25
    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.
  • aankur2008/06/16 12:34:08
    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.
