    Don't think it would do that unfortunately. (Though I'm may test that tonight)

    May I recommend the Edimax Wireless-g 54Mbps Access Point for Circa £30 from all good stockists ( )

    Works a treat instead of the 360 wireless adapter.

    Aldi ? Wouldn't be seen dead in one of those shops. It attracts too many chavs and gypos.

    A-men to that!

    If the quality of the PC is anything like the quality of the food you'd be better of with a Packard Bell (and that's saying something!)

    Well, I had a wasted journey tonight on the way home from work - the 40-quid wireless usb hub looked like a cheap solution for a charity I support IT-wise, so along I popped - only to encounter some git coming out the place carrying the last five. So in I went to have a go at the manager for allowing customers to buy more than one. FFS! And you were right, Mattx, the place was full of chavs.

    Hope you were wearing a stab vest when you complained to the manager.......

    You are right there, I popped round to a friends who shops at Aldi, they had some snacks and stuff out as it was a small social gathering - it tasted [ and looked ] like the contents of a hoover bag.

    True, but our local one is nowhere near as bad as our local ASDA.

    The only (Medion) problem I've had with mine was due to a stalled BIOS update. The "customer service" was no help whatsoever, but some help here got it sorted. If I hadn't had that experience I'd be very happy with the machine.

    Our store hasn't even had their stock in (possibly the lorry was hijacked by that girl!).

    Some is rubbish, some isn't. Their maple syrup popcorn (when they have it) is gorgeous, and they do some nice cous cous and quinoa stuff. Their £1.59 meat feast pizza is probably my favourite store pizza of all.

    'meat' - Aldi? I'm sure they are banned from using that word on any of their produce - trade description act?

    I normally shop (online) at Sainsburys. I have a Lidl (Aldi under another name?) store opposite me. I've gone slumming it on the odd occasion, conveniance, and so far the only the thing that hasn't tasted wrong as been the milk...

    I often shop in Waitrose. I also often shop in Lidl. The chocolate covered marshmallows a habit acquired whilst living in Germany. Their dark chocolate bars are great in the chocolate fudge cakes I make, 12 bars for less than £10.

    Managed to get a Remote Hub and they had several left in one of the roughest parts of the city. It was quiet, not too many chavs, one was trying to decipher the advert for the external HDD, '3.5TB 1TB' all just numbers to him.

    You have to be a bit selective at Aldi. Their peanuts are great, as are the yoghurts and mushrooms. Fruit needs to be picked with care but that's the same in Waitrose. Their cereals are fine and biscuits.

    Dont mock the aldi and lidl, well at least until you've tried the beer, they've got some cracking german brews and they usually put bottled ales at 4 and sometimes 5 for a fiver so its worth popping your head in the door just for that. The Saint Etienne lager is supposedly rebadged belgian Stella, whatever it is it tastes pretty good, theres a bit of a thread over at moneysavingexpert on whats good/crap too.

    Ah well, I tried, if they start knocking out bottles of hobgoblin at a quid a bottle do you want me to give you a nudge? I'm sure aldi are doing Newcastle Brown Ale at a pound a bottle from today too.
