    Here's the price he quoted me:

    The price & shipping charges are stated as below:
    SZ1350 - US$399
    Shipping via Fedex(UK) - US$30

    Total - US$429
    That's about £225

    I also asked about upscaling normal DVD's and got this reply:

    Yes, SnaZio* Net DVD CinemA HD (SZ1350) can definitely fulfill your requirement in HD/SD upscaling playback.
    It video out through DVI or Component which support upto 720p/1080i HDTV resolution.

    If you want to email him for more info then pm me and I'll send you his email addy.

    Cheers,
    Rich

    Hmmm, allowing for VAT aswell (coming from Singapore ?), that makes it about £280.

    I think I shall give the Roku HD1500 a try first, coming in at £237 delivered, and hard wire it to my laptop. Hundreds of Gb of space available then, plus DVD-ROM.

    Kevin.

    Isn't this box the same as this one which sells for £154 inc. VAT ?

    If you import this from outside the EU, you will have to pay VAT and import duty when it arrives, so add that into your costs.

    No it's not, this is a new HD one that uses the new sigma chipset (EM8620L).

    Basically it means it will play HD material (and audioWMA9 pro), it's got 'g' wifi and it's got better DA conversion, USB 2, analog 5.1 output.

    I think that's it.

    I've emailed them and didn't get a reply. I would guess the best thing is to keep checking out the same place and keep an eye out for the 'HD' version.

    Has anyone had any email correspondence from Snazio UK recently? I've sent them thee different emails in the last 10days and not had a single reply.
    This does not fill you with confidence if you decide to attempt to purchase any products.

    Has anyone had/used the Net DVD Cinema unit on thier website?

    I got a rather terse email from them this morning when I was nagging them for an update on their "in 15 days time" response to my question on timescales of 13th May.

    He still had no price for me and no delivery date.

    I guess that they are having the same problems with the EM8620 chipset that others have (reportedly, and only by the guys who aren't yet marketing an EM8620 based model: Momitsu and Transgear) had.

    Got to be worth waiting for, though, hasn't it?

    Are there any other EM8620 alternatives with an RGB scart?

    Hmm, yes. The first two have component out but no SCART (I have an ancient TV with just 1 scart), KiSS DP-600 I haven't heard of and the Zensonic Z500 is rapidly becoming vaporware.

    Interstingly, the URL doesn't list the Snazio SZ1350.

    I had an email from Jennifer NG at Snazio this morning. Text here:

    "Sorry for the wait. There is some delay in the production and we are keeping
    our finger crossed that the units will reach us soon. I would not want to
    commit any date at the moment to avoid further disappointment.

    However, please be ensure that you will be in my priority list once the
    units arrived.

    Thanks for your patience."

    Interestingly phrased though, don't you think? ...that the units will reach us soon...

    Makes you wonder who's making them.

    I told her I'd had enough waiting - if she hadn't told me about the SZ1350 in the first place I'd have happily bought a Momitsu weeks ago!

    I lied though. I I''ll wait. :boring:

    fingleburt> Hi there Tariq
    Tariq Khan> Hello, how may I help you ?
    fingleburt> Iam very interested in buying your Net DVD Cinema HD system
    fingleburt> when will this be available to buy in the UK?
    Tariq Khan> Yes sure, please
    Tariq Khan> Okay, so how can I help you
    fingleburt> when will this be available to buy in the UK?
    Tariq Khan> In the end of this month
    fingleburt> June?
    Tariq Khan> Yes.
    fingleburt> is there a price point for this yet?
    Tariq Khan> Please provide me your email address so we will inform you when it will be released.
    fingleburt> sure, *removed for safety reasons* ;)
    Tariq Khan> Well, for the price I would recommend you to contact our Sales Department at sales@vonemm.com or contact Mr. Bilal at bilala@vonemm.com
    Tariq Khan> Thank you for providing me your email address. I or our Sales Department will email you as soon as SnaZio* NET DVD Cinema HD will be available for sale in UK.

    I wouldnt get too excited about the Sigma chipset based machines, they have a habit of bringing out the technology first but with loads of bugs and limitations in the firmware, after that, other companies bring out chips later which are far superior. This is what happened with the mp4 hardware players and i'm sure it will happen again in this product life cycle of the HD players.

    I wish they'd get on and release the product, there must be a lot of people out there getting increasingly frustrated at the delays. My only hope is that when it is released it will have less problems than the LP2 and LT had on launch. Also there is the risk of loosing business to their competitors the longer they delay.
