Summary: I was very happy with the 2 units that I purchased last year to attach to our two TVs. While definitely slow for video encoding, that's not what they're built for. They show DVDs well and can handle most downloaded video fine. Netflix chokes a bit on HD, and I suspect that's because Silverlight pushes the work to the CPU instead of graphics card. The real PROBLEM was when the fan died on one of the units.
Summary: I got this ASUS Eee Box for Christmas but it took quite some time to arrive so I only really had it for two weeks. It is cute, small, and does a basic jib. Big problem is the memory: The 2GB provided are insufficient but when I tried to upgrade with the recommended Corsair 2GB DDR 3 1333MHz, it would not work. In fact, I tried 5 different products and none worked.
