  • Good but not THAT good

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Very responsive and feature packed for such a small and cheap gadget!

    Cons:

    You can push it to the limit very quick and you'll want to replace is with something stronger. Maybe some custom ROM would make it better?

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought this as a cheap alternative for HTPC (music, pictures, movies and web). But for that to work like I want, you first need to get a solid USB hub with standalone power plug, some device to control it (I think phone could be used for that) and a storage disk. And different power plug adapters if you're not from UK. Lots of additional cables and price of everything together gets tripled.

    Bottomline:

    I'm still trying it out. New version of XBMC is a no-go, HD movies will stutter there. If i can't play my movie collection smoothly on it I doubt how much use I will get from this thing. I may be forced to shell out 300€ and assemble my own HTPC that covers all of my demands.

    Any comments or suggestions are welcomed!
