     Superb bit of kit by Jason

    Arrived today and after some fun with the jumper settings (setting to master) it was all set up. For the time being I've installed my wife's spare 20GB hard drive (she won't even notice it's gone!), formatted to FAT32 and dragged the 'Heroes' series onto it. A little more fun with the video output settings and it's on the TV right now, I also love the way you can just carry it upstairs and pop it on the bedroom's LCD too, very handy. Picture quality is excellent and so is the sound, onscreen menu is easy to use (I didn't bother with the manual). I bought this to replace my H&B AV-512 which died and I'm very happy, especially with the card reader function.

     Sumvision Aqua by Panicatak

    Sumvision Aqua

    After lots of Web research I finally realised what SVA stands for... I have tested Sumvision's product before and have always found them to be of good quality. So I bit the bullet and purchased one of these Enclosures.

    I already own two different Divx DVD players, a Philips and a Skyworth, The Philips has been very good, the Skyworth so-so.

    I had high hopes for the playback abilities of this player and so far I have not been disappointed. I have installed a Maxtor 160Gb drive that a bought when upgrading my Sky+. The Drive is a 5400Rpm from Maxtor?s Quickview range (designed for PVR use).

    In this enclosure it is quiet and cool.

    So far this device has played everything I have tested on it, and looks great on my old 28" Crt TV. Although I would say that it looks even better in an old spare 15" CRT monitor I have on my desk!

    If you are thinking of getting one of these enclosures, don't wait any longer, BUY IT, BUY IT NOW!

    Message for Aria, why not call this by its correct name then people can research the quality of this unit for themselves!

    Ricahrd, you can get two figure-8 power leads to connect to the psu brick, that 1/2's your problem. Dave, you have put an HDD in it haven't you? ;-) to check if XP recognises it right-click My Computer > Manage > disk Management and see if it's there, check out my review for tips on formatting with windows

    thanks for that Tim

     Review by Tim

    XP by default is limited to creating up to 32gb partitions in FAT32. The on-board media-player part doesn't recognise NTFS (even though its fine as an NTFS USB drive). I didn't find any software to format with included, but found a tool to allow me to format the whole 120gb disk i put in as one FAT32 partition. Once connected to a TV/monitor for the first time, you might need to press the video output toggle button until you see a picture. It didn't like multi-previewing lots of xvid files, but has been pretty good otherwise. Recommended at this price

    I'm missing the driver CD for this unit and I can't get the driver from the manufacturer's site. Is there any other way of getting hold of the drivers?

    Response by Chris R
    Drivers? Should be picket up by Windows as a Mass storage device. What ver of Windows are you using Dave?
