    Hi there,

    I have noticed that there seem a lot more of these about on trains lately. Does anyone have experience of using them/ recommend particular ones ??

    Im tempted to buy one to pass the time on long journeys


    regards

    I would advise buying a cheapo one (you can get them from £150 now) so you won't be too annoyed if you get mugged.


    Alternatively get a MP4 hard disk jukebox (like a MP3 jukebox but with video! ) and copy DVDs and TV recordings onto it.

    The main two are the Archos Multimedia Jukebox and the Thomson Lyra - not cheap, they start at £400. A cheaper alternative is a memory card based MP4 player coming out for £200 from Goodmans soon.
