    Been using WDTV HD player to watch HiDef mkv files on my 40" Samsung full HD. This small player is a versatile unit and the latest one comes with network support. Connections include HDMI and digital audio. Native support for DD 5.1 and DTS pass through.

    That is a good one... I too have been using the same for more than 15 months now.

    Iam taking Paddle shifter's advice and am not buying an expensive TV
    Reason???,it just rained slightly and one thunder struck and the 14 inch CRT I was watching at workplace burst and went kaput!
    Imagine if it was expensive LCD,all the money would have gone down the drain.

    Bala - So you're the balabala on HiFiVision is it?

    I don't think this should be a reason not to buy a bigger screen, Read the thread over there as well. Make sure you got the earthing done properly and unplug them when it rains.

    Sorry to know that Bala sir.
    Also, I didn't say that we shouldn't buy expensive TV when we were discussing that topic last month.
    I had said that better wait for sometime and get 3D LEDs for similar price after 8-10 months, rather than spending such a huge amount at this time.

    We all have spent on cars as well. And cars are at much greater risk of various types than TVs. :redcar
  7. I bought a Seagate 500 GB USB hard disk drive yesterday. It was an impulsive buy; price was Inr 3370. Did I spend too much for that or is this the normal price?

    Any reviews on Seagate USB drives? Are they reliable?

    Is this a 2.5" or 3.5" one? Seagate is usually reliable. Of the top brands, I have found Maxtor the least reliable and Samsung/Seagate/WD as most reliable.
  9. @Roy:
    I guess it is a 3.5 inch one (I have to check), but it is compact and lightweight. Yes I have one Maxtor 160GB one and it is very unreliable indeed. (It had crashed two times and I had to recover data from it)

    Hi clevermax,

    As far as I know, 3.5" HDDs require a separate power supply connection. 2.5" HDDs can draw power from the USB port itself. This should help you figure it out.

    Regards
