Thanks for the offer. Seeing how im going to Best Buy to get my father a Bluetooth for his iphone as a present I think I just get the HDD there as well.

No problem. I understand. I hope you can find something nice for him.

I just hope he will appreciate this like you do

I have yet another problem. I'm trying to help my mother get a gift for my father. And what he wants are a good pair of headphones for his sound studio, but there is one trick, he wants the once that have a sound regulator on the headphones them selfs. These headphones will be in the recording booth, and he wants people to be able to control the sound them selfs. Trying not to go over $150 MAX. I know its not a lot for a good pair of headphones, but it is what it is.

Im looking on Newegg now, but cant seem to find anything. I can really use some help here

Thanks

I just looked at the selection they have there and I cant seem to find the headphones with a volume regulator... Maybe professional/Studio headphones not suppose to have that feature?

In regards to my brothers HDD, I was thinking about getting it from bestbuy when I go there to get a bluetooth for my father, but I figures a portable HDD with 1TB will cost me a good amount. So I took a look on newegg and here is what I found. What you guys think? I think the portable dock is VERY cool and will come handy for me as well.

Or I can get him one of these.... What you guys think?

If you think there is a better HDD I can get for the same price or less, plz let me know. And here is the youtube link to the Thermaltake BlacX and how easy it is to use.



Thanks.

I want it to be a surprise so I don't want to go and ask him what he wants u know... I'm thinking in a range of $100-$200. Wile typing this I remembered him saying that he needs an external HDD to store all his films...etc I think I might do that.

What you guys think?
Wow, you've gotten your little brother all that? You're the best big brother in the world!

Can I come be your little brother? (even though I'm probably older than you)

I think throughout the period of two years.
