Media Drive - buying advice please.

  funkey_monkey 17:26 24 Nov 2008


I'm looking to buy a Media Drive and am getting very confused by some of the products I see online. I appreciate that people rarely post positive reviews and therefore it is only those with a gripe about an item that post. Hence it makes getting an informed opinion rather difficult.

Anyways, I'm looking for a drive up to 500Gb (around 200Gb would be adequate). I want it to support as many file formats as possible and have upgradeable firmware.
A fan which is not overly noisy would be ideal as well.

Can you guys please make some recommendations or point me towards reviews which I could use to make a decision upon?

I have had an Iomega nultimedia drive for playing photos and videos on the TV. I load the drive from my computer using USB and play on the HDMI output to the TV. It has plenty of other output connectors. Eight months and no problems
