  1.  Average USB Flash Drive from PNY


    Good value 4GB USB drive (5 pounds at the time of writing) with average transfer speed but build quality seems a little cheap. Works fine with Windows Vista and PS3 but is NOT compatible with Xbox 360. Movie download was simple but requires installation of PNY Movie Player. Also the choice of movies was not great but as a free bonus you can't really complain.

  2.  Bang Tidy !!!


    Worth it for the "bum-belly" scene with Mel C alone !

    Don't be a dingbat ......... just buy it !!!

  3.  Perfect for Xbox 360


    I purchased two of these SanDisk Cruzer 16GB USB Flash Drives to use with my Xbox 360 after Microsoft released a system update adding USB support on 6th April 2010.

    The Xbox 360 only allows up to 16GB USB storage on any one drive so this one is perfect for the job. After formatting in the Xbox 360 it left a little over 14GB storage space. I tested it by installing a game to the USB drive and played it for four hours. The results were fantastic, much improved loading times and the added bonus of a quiet Xbox 360 without the DVD drive constantly spinning.

    This USB flash drive is nice and small and I personally like the "switchblade" design which retracts the USB connector when not in use. The only slight drawback is the large, bright orange light behind the thumb slider which shines / flickers when the drive is accessed (constantly while gaming). Although this is a little annoying it's not bad enough to mark the product down.

    5 out of 5 from me, great product and super value (17.99 at the time of writing).

  4.  Thompson 902020 Sky HD Box Upgrade


    I used this Hard Drive USB Dock to upgrade the hard drive in my Thompson 902020 Sky HD box to 1TB using Copy+

    This USB Dock transferred the data from my original 300GB Seagate hard drive to a new Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EVDS 1TB 3.5" Internal SATA Hard Drive (also from Play.com) flawlessly.

    After inserting the hard drive into the dock and hot-plugging into a free USB port the device was up and running with Windows Vista.

  5.  Thompson 902020 Sky HD Box Upgrade


    As CaptJolly stated in the previous review this WD10EVDS Hard Drive is designed specifically to be used in PVR (Personal Video Recorder) and DVR (Digital Video Recorder) appliances. This makes it perfect for upgrading a Sky HD box. I upgraded my Thompson 902020 Sky HD box using this superb Western Digital HDD and am delighted with the results.
    This low power hard drive is much quieter than the original drive in my Thompson (300GB Seagate) and more importantly the rewind & forward functions are now much smoother. Before the upgrade my planner had 21% free space, now it has 88% !!!

    I used a CiT DK02 2.5" / 3.5" SATA Hard Drive USB Dock (also from Play.com) for the Copy+ transfer which worked perfectly.

    I recommend this hard drive without hesitation for upgrading a Thompson 902020 Sky HD box .... 5 out of 5 ... perfect.
