First of all, that other guy who gave it so-so ratings is a whiner. No internet radio? Who cares? Listen to internet radio on your computer or [drumroll] listen to regular or satellite radio through your home/auto system.
I threw a 1TB Seagate Barracuda in this baby and began ripping .ISO's of my DVD collection. Now that I have roughly 275 DVD's on the internal HDD I can watch my DVD collection like I would "On Demand" on my cable box. I just scroll through my DVD's like the TV guide and hit 'Play'.
