Besides taking up less space, the internal drive is accessible on the net for data transfer (I'm not certain that an attached drive will show up to a PC). Not sure of any other advantages...
shaxs wrote:Okay I setup. So far my impressions are really good! This thing is SMALL. Really small wow. The files I need to stream work perfectly over wireless. Granted, I haven't watch an entire episode yet but so far so good. A couple of bas things. The interface is clunky- imo. I wish they were more like the buffalo link theatre. Also, the fan is LOOUUDDD.. A patriot Representative said on their forum:
"We apologize for the fan issues you've been having. If you wish.. we would happy to replace the unit for you.. or..
if you have no plans for HDD inside, you CAN unplug the yellow and black wire fan connector from the board. That cooling fan is stricly to increase air flow due to limited limited internal air flow IF you adding a HDD."

Issue: abnormal high pitch fan noises.
Cause of the issue: Fan axel lubricant leakage

I just looked at the user manual, and it looks like you just rename an srt file to the same filename as the video file? What about subtitles that are embedded in mkv files; will these just not show up? Thanks.

Much cheaper than an HTPC, but then again my HTPC will play some games, check email, and do videditing as well as play BlueRay rips on my LCD...
