Does what it says – Digimate DVR Video Player+Recorder Hard Disk Enclosure Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
These media palyers are great.
Works with a 1TB FAT32 disk
Nice aluminium case
Runs cool
Cons:
Fan it a bit noisy, but ok.
Boot up is slow. Not sure if this is related to the huge hard disk I installed.
On screen text looks a bit rough.
Holes/slots in the front look a bit cheap
Other:
I installed a 1Tb (1000Gb) WD hard disk, formatted it for FAT32 using a WD tool (downloadable from WD) and it worked just fine. You can't use windows (vista to XP) to format such a large disk.
It takes a 3.5 inch drive (not a 2.5) as incorrectly listed in the description.
Bottomline:
Get it.
