are you searching online for the xbox cables? if so, most search engines on sites and on google will allow you to exclude words. just type in 'xbox' and then '-360' to exclude the 360.
I know that, but I shouldn't have to do that. Besides I was searching on Amazon for one. Even with -360 in the search field it's still impossible to find them. The second search result came back for a USB hub




TBH Charlie is mod of the MLP forum aswell... to insult him even further than having that plastered beneath is username would be unfair.

You'll have much better luck looking on eBay, harbin91, Amazon is pretty terrible for things like that.

This is currently the cheapest one available.

Not really wanting to buy from ebay TBH. Might see what some of the game stores (not the likes of Game or Grainger Games) in town have in, the smaller, independent retailers. Quite a few of them have actually got some older games in (pre-sixth gen). Might accidentally come across some older platform gems.

Well that just sucks. Decided that I'm gonna get around to setting up my Xbox and my Gamecube again, and I can't find the power leads for them... and finding a power lead for an Xbox is impossible when everything returned is for an Xbox 360. If I wanted something for an Xbox 360, I would've typed in 'Xbox 360'

Wanted to play Halo aswell.

$70 more and you can get a 480gb.

On the subject of pricing, why on earth does this SSD cost $349.99 in the US which translates to £218.73 yet on the UK Amazon store it's £272.97?

I absolutely hate this country. Companies and their *bleep*ing ripoff prices.

From the review I read it's the fastest thing available to date... although I do doubt I'll notice it... and well, I bought a nice cheap mSATA to SATA adapter for my lil old 64gb mSATA drive that I'll prolly place in my desktop.

If I was that bothered about speed I'd get a PCIe SSD... that or just buy as much RAM as my motherboard supports and set up a RAMDisk.

I'd rather have a non volatile storage system... just now the light went out and my computer shut off... but nothing happened to it... and windows will be equally slow or slower booting up since you can't keep data stored on the ram with the PC off.

So yes... they suck

That is why I don't use it on automatic startup. At the moment I just use it to store program cache files (like Firefox stuff), since it's volatile, it wipes it all anyway.

Besides you could easily mount stuff on the RAMdisk, doesn't have to set everything up on startup, so no. RAMDisk doesn't suck.

actually, RAM disks are powered externally from the computer (the good ones are, anyway), so that even when the computer turns off, the power still flows to the RD. of course, thats why you need a UPS, or at least something that can maintain a few seconds of power during a brief loss of power.
