Pros: Small; NTFS for USB hard drives (meh); Remote; Wide range of opututs (will go from my HDTV to CRT in kids room to LCD in mini van). Cons: No internal storage (meh); No exFAT (Biggie: no support for <4GB files, most 720p files are ~6GB); No support for x264 MKV (vast majority of rip’d movies); No network. I didn’t even get to play one movie since it wouldn’t play a x264 MKV’s. The menu did come up. I reformatted my flash drive to NTFS (not a good idea) and it did recognize it. Returning it.
