    Just bought one of these and im well impressed. Ive been using netgear media streamers for years and this blows them away.
    I decided to look for a new streamer because the netgear EVA8000 doesnt support windows 7, and it doesnt look like netgear are going to resolve this issue so im unable to stream any HD content.
    I set the xtreamer up yesterday and have been messing around with it and it works flawlessly, you can stream all your media from your PC to your TV, play music, go on youtube etc and use internet radio.
    Ive also ordered the etrays which is released next month so il have NAS aswell :)
    If any of you lot are looking for something like this then buy one:)

    It does look a seriously good bit of kit, and a very nice price. Think I will stick with the PS3 though as I could not see that it does anything that the PS3 has not been doing for ages.

    Yeah, the PS3 plays most formats, but it cant play .mkv, .ogg, .flac, and more obscure formats such as those. Not really a big issue though.

    It does look pretty cool I've got to admit. I do have a PS3 my self and although too bad it doesnt play those formats, I end up converting the video anyways plus with PS3Media Server, it's absolutely awesome!

    I run the PS3 on Ubuntu 8.10 which plays pretty much anything you throw at it. Although it was a labour of love getting the wireless working, worth it in the end.

    I will be recommending the Xtreamer to friends that don't want to go to the expense and installing Linux.

    Yeah, linux is a bitch for wireless lol :)
    Im pretty sure that the xtreamer is linux based, pretty much explains why it runs so well :D
