Pros: Can plays lot of formats, especially M2TS

Cons: Handbrake created M4V - cannot fastforward or change chapters (maybe there's a way, but I don't know yet) can use some improvement on the interface Wish it can plays Hulu and Netflix Not enough USB power to power my WD 320GB portable drive

Stability problem with DES

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great design. Like UD3.

Cons: I think there is some stability problem once the DES is turn on. My computer restarts from time to time, however, not that frequent. I'm running with DES turned off, don't know if that fixes the problem yet.
