Subject: Re: Hard drive in H340 gone?

Re: Hard drive in H340 gone?

From: Eric Schreiber <Eric.Schreiber_at_gmx.de>
Date: 2006-05-24

Last Thursday I sent my H340 back to Amazon...
Today I got a completely new device back, including all other stuff
as cables and headphones. After only 6 days...
From email traffic with them I would conclude they not even bothered
to unpack the old player. Instead they immediately sent me a
new one
... Amazing Amazon...

Happy...
  -Eric

PS: On their (german) web site they say that they still have some
H340 in stock, available within 24 hours, for 349.- Euros.
