Pros: I bought this to replace my old Dell laptop as a DLNA server for home. I've hooked up 2 external USB 3 TB HDs to it, a USB wireless adapter, a laser printer and flatbed scanner. Nothing slows this down. It plays movies across our wireless network with no lag, not stutter. I've recorded over 1800 movies and TV programs from my DVDs as well as 7500+ songs from our CDs. Love the computer but it's early. Will give a second review in a few months if things change. Price was just under $500 at the time I bought it.
Cons: None yet
Other Thoughts: Well worth it. Ordered it Tuesday night and it was on my doorstep Friday afternoon. Excellent service from New Egg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech 970-000001 Revue Companion Box with Google TV and Keyboard Controller
Pros: Has a Google chrome browser. Access to the app market, has multiple multimedia players available. Almost all of the current boxes like this do not have browsers and restrict what you can play. I use mine now to access the DNLA server I built to store & watch my 1200+ DVDs digitally. Other boxes and WiFi TVs make you use only those services they carry and their boxes can't be updated with 3rd party apps. I just bought a new Visio 60" with WiFi and the built in web apps won't access my 3Tb DNLA drive. With the Revue all 1200 videos are quick and easy to access. I used the Revue on my older 47" Viso with the same results. The Revue is the best. Too bad Logitech isn't willing to keep this going.
Cons: None that I can think of except it is discontinued by Logitech.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RX-DU101 Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 Docking Station
Pros: I've had my dock for nearly 4 years. I hot swap drives with no problems swapping between 1T and 500 GB drives. I store movies on my drives and am buying a second one to set up with my flat screen. Have swapped 2.5" and 3.5" OEM drives. Small foot print on the desk.
Cons: USB is a little slow for some file transfers on my laptop but there are no issues when playing movies or using files.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the low price!READ FULL REVIEW
