Works Well, Great ISO Player 04/26/2010
Plays ISO format and everthing I have thrown at it with ease, can update over the web, had no problem logging into my hi end pc running Vista Ultimate 64 bit over my network.
File access was easy enough. I gave it five eggs becuase it is the best one currently available in my opinion. I have continually been pleasantly surprised with Patriot products being relatively new to the market, I hope they continue as much so as to keep up the competition with its products being of good quality, performance and bang for buck, this is good for the industry.
Could use a little better user interface but it is not a bad interface at all. If you are spoiled with gui interfaces it would be a con but it is easy to navigate. I really like the thumbnails that run the dvd files in real time motion so you can preview them without actually running the the dvd.
I looked at many of these including the WD, what I like the most was being able to play ISO files. I added a 500 gig 2.5" hard drive and copied all my iso files, music files and pictures to it and love that it is so small I can take it anywhere like on vacation. Very well built, not plastic. Needs a cool case, another cool feature is having it randomly play your pictures while playing music. Currently I think this is the best unit on the market, I could see a huge market for these. I dont use the file copy through the menu because it is allot easier to just plug it into your pc and use it just like a regular hard drive, once I have everthing copied just unplug it from your pc and use it as normal for use on your video display or tv. HDMI works well.
