Pros: Plays lots of formats. HD quality video, digital audio
Cons: Unstable, horrible UI, terrible remote, cannot consistently perform intended functions, internal hard drive recognition issues
Other Thoughts: Ultimately, you will be disappointed. IN SHORT, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PURCHASING.
The box looks nice from the outside (aside from the completely useless display), and has decent components. However, performance and overall user experience is sorely lacking. The gigabit ethernet can only sustain file transfers around 3 megs per second. Two different hard drives I've put in there are accessible only sporadically. The GUI is downright atrocious. It freezes and hangs too often. The remote is a total joke - you better have a harmony if you actually want to operate this thing.
It's a shame because the AIOS runs linux and could be used for lots of great things. When it does work, it plays files well. However, it cannot do this on a consistent basis.
