    Hard drives

    Hi.

    Has anyone noticed it hard to find a Hard drive available in stock lately???

    Well. I think i know the answer. Like me. I am looking for a Maxtor 160gb. The reason. I want it to replace my Maxtor 40gb drive i have in my Sky Plus Digibox. The new drive will give me 80 Hours of recording. Its the reason i found this forum today...Nice...
    But sadly no Stock available...I have noticed people on Ebay (Where else).Selling these cheap drives..Because for Sky Plus its not at all technical..Pull out the old drive and slap in another 1..But bigger..

    Useless info i know..But i thought i'd share it with you......

    I'll get me coat.....
