For me the only "niggle" about it would be that it's 100% digital only. So far I've been looking for a DVD drive, so now I'd still need my old DVD or Blu-Ray in the future. But it really is cost effective solution for what it does, I also checked my local supplier and it's not even worth ordering it from overseas.
I still have a dvd player as well, but haven't used it in a couple of months aside from the odd hired out film.
I really wanted something to store all my films on so I didn't have to keep swapping discs over & waiting for the film to load up (get past all the ads & copy protection crap) & so far this little gadget has been perfect for my needs.
Is there not an equivelent amazon for you over there? How much are they trying to charge from what you've found?

If I get a chance later on, I'll try to film what the menus look like to give people an idea of how it works.

Looks like custom firmware is available to allow dvd drives to be attached.
Might invalidate your warranty though.

I'm familiar with Amazon (I do order lots of DVD's and clothes from there) but I like to order or buy most of my gadgets locally, it's so much easier if something goes wrong and I'm talking from an knowledge base. It's true that it costs £80 if bought from here. But still it's ok because the company is nearby so I can go and pick it personally + that they've got amazingly good customer service in case something happens.

Can understand that - especially with hardware ;)
£80 is only slightly more, plus with import tax / postage it'd probably work out cheaper buying locally.
