If enough people outside the UK wanted one, I could probably try to arrange a group buy of the Emprex units (I'd have to check with my mum first, because it would be her doing the work, but I'm sure she would be OK with it). If I ordered 6 units, it would be free shipping to my UK address and then onward shipping could be done at cost. One has just been put in the post to Switzerland today and shipping was £5.83. I suppose that it would still be less than £10 to ship to the rest of the world, so looking at ~ £16-20 to get one of these units. Small 20 Gig IDE drives can be found really cheap on ebay for not much money, so probably less than £40 total investment for a recorder that works reasonable well.

Could anyone tell me what is the approx MB of a 10 minute recording on a Emprex BRP-101.
I ask this as I would like to know what size hard drive I could get away with. Small= cheaper.

About 50mb per 10 mins. So a few gig hd should be plenty.

I didn't. I did try this with an old ipod harddrive but couldn't get it to work. I think the ipod drive may have been fried though.

From what I found, SD to IDE adapters are slow. Week ago I ordered CF (compactflash) to IDE adapter. When I receive it I will install it in my Emprex and let you know about the results.

I can add you to the list. There's only one other person on it at the moment, so would need another 4 before I could get free shipping to my UK address.

I'm ready to pay for the shipping within UK and to NL as well. There are only 8 units on stock. I'm afraid more than 2 will disapear before we get 6 people interested.

Actually I was thinking SDHC cards. I should have been more specific.

Below is what I found on SD card transfer speeds....


"SD memory cards can transfer data at a maximum speed of 2Mb (megabits) per second. SDHC cards are rated in three different speed classes. A "Class 2" SDHC card can transfer data at a rate of 2Mb per second. A "Class 4" SDHC card can transfer data at a rate of 4Mb per second, and a "Class 6" SDHC card can transfer data at a rate of 6Mb per second."

But please post your findings...
