Yup, that makes sense Jeff. Thanks. Buzz, thanks for that info. A problem with ordering something like this from the US is the import charges I'd have to pay. There would be VAT at 17.5% plus additional handling fees. That £321 is more likely to be closer to £400. Still cheaper than buying it over here, but not that much. That's an expensive proposition just to tranfer a handful of movies. I can get the ADVC-1394 for about £240 here or for abour £320 with Premiere (not sure I'll really need that to be honest).
