Hello all, congrats on a suberb site. Found you through my research for the new sony mp3 player. And the discussions have been very usefull. I have decided to buy the nw-hd5, but i just have a couple of queries. I went down to TCR yesterday to the sony centre there, and the price of the 30G model is 230 quid. On amazon its 210, what advantages do i get of buying from sony direct? Also my laptop is getting old and running low on disc space. I have about 1gig of space left on the hard drive. Is this going to be a problem. (Kinda ironic that my mp3 player will have a larger hard disc than my computer!! Many thanks in advance, Mark P.S The guy in the sony shop was excellent - he let me look at sonicstage on a pc and play with the hd5. PPS he said that you can copy music off a pc without sonicstage and store it on the hard-drive, then when you get to your pc (with sonicstage) you can transfer your files and bingo - not sure if you didnt know that already, but there you go.
