My "Like" is not a comment on the 4000T's physical appearance...

Is that a stitched leather lid??


The Dumb One
NO. It's a kitchen hotplate. Stupid place to put the controls though. (either as a FV or a hotplate)

I used to work with this stuff, but as far as I can remember we only ever referred to it as 100BaseT for the physical level, with the following 'X', '4', '2' etc. being used as a protocol description, however, it has been a while

I see Argos are jumping the gun as usual, the 4000T is in their new catalogue and available in August, but don't expect to be purchasing one in the next 3 days as the item isn't on their website yet and there aren't any in stock


The catalogue also says the 4000T is a dual recorder, which is very misleading as it has a 3 + 1 tuner / recorder

I imagine that, as usual, all they have done is update a description for an earlier product for the new machine, and the description has just rolled over.


Any ideas of the wireless standard? 802.11g/n or will this have 802.11ac? All the spec sheets i have seen online just say 'wireless built in'.

I have not seen it confirmed one way or the other but I would be surprised if its the latter.

The FVP-4000T 500 GB is listed as in stock on Amazon by Hughes Direct and on checking their own website (hughes.co.uk) is also available from Hughes stores. I plan to go and view tomorrow.
