Re: Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz CPU Review

So if you were building a machine for developing Android applications, i.e. compiling java, would you go with the G620 Sandy Bridge or AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana. Trying to help a friend decide on a new budget upgrade for his machine.

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

I just got done watching 4 shows with the wife..... all without a hitch! I disconnected the fan inside the box and now it is super quiet. The jump to time feature is really nice, although the fast forward function doesn't work all that well. Considering I bought an Xbox 360 at Amazon for $200 + $100...

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

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...

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

Patriot has some instructions on how to get around any issues you may have with W7 shares here . 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... :-k I follo...

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

It should be here today so we will see how it goes. Is there a way to sync files to the Patriot hard drive via wireless from my main pc? Also, seems to be some Windows 7 compatibility issue

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

I want to stream 720p files that are about 1.13 gigabytes (I.e. 1 hour tv shows). Is there a setting that allows you to change the amount of buffer time?

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

Can someone do an analysis on how much louder the Xbox 360 is over this option? Also, can you try streming a 1 gb HD file over a wireless g network and let me know how well that works out? Can't tell you how loud the Patriot Box Office is versus the Xbox since I don't own one. The fan is quiet, but...
