I've just brought a new TV and want to try out the recording to hard drive.
Samsung seem to recommend a External Hard Drives with a power supply for there TVs so I want to buy one of those.

 

So anyone got an old unit hanging around I can buy 500G - 1TB will be fine. USB2 or USB3.
If so what do you want for (include postage to Dunedin please).

 

Thanks

 

Steve

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

@k1w1k1d - Sounds to easy :)

 

 Thanks - how long does 320GB last recording-wise?
