I dont know why but i have been wanting one forever so i just decided to suck it up and drop the $250. Its actually really cool. one of the many drawbacks though is the youtube experience. You cannot browse channels just on the normal site which makes it very difficult to use. I love the National geographic channel but now i cant really use it. the streaming of music, photos, and mp4s is really cool. overall, worth the money (especially if you acquire movies and tv shows else where and then convert them to MP4s. On a side note, my handbrake program literally crashes every time i try to convert files, does anybody know of a better product?
