Seven's TiVo gets more storage, video on demand

New 320GB model is the same price as the original 160GB TiVo HD

From 1 December, a TiVo HD set-top box will be available with a 320GB hard drive for $699. The original 160GB model will have its price cut by $100 to $599. The TiVo's distributor, Hybrid Television Services, is owned by the Seven Media Group which runs Australia's Channel Seven television network.

In addition, the 320GB model will be supplied with a Home Networking kit free of charge until 31 January; the kit retails for $199. The Home Networking kit allows TiVo users to transfer their video recordings to external devices like iPods.

The TiVo HD set-top box was criticised at launch for its small internal hard drive compared to competing digital television recorders.

Also from 1 December, the TiVo gains access to the company's proprietary video content portal, CASPA On-Demand. The portal provides new release and older movies, television shows, music videos, full concerts and artist interviews with both free and pay-per-view content available. Over 1000 hours of video will be available at launch. Additional content will continue to be added, with advertiser-supported free video becoming available from Q2 next year.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
