Looking for Media Device that you can connect an External HDD
I was looking at the Western Digital one and Seagate. Is anyone out there using something besides Apple TV, I sold my Mini and no longer have a server to share out my library. I was thinking of running it on an old Windows PC, but everything I use at home is Mac so wouldn't make sense.
I looked at the WD Media device and you can just connect an ext hdd so I am wondering what others are doing.
iPhone 5 16GB White
2012 MacBook Pro 13" 2.5/4GB/240GB SSD

I own the old WDTV and the new WD TV Live. The new one supports USB Hubs, so you can plug in 4 external disks and watch/listen anything. If you hook it to your network, all your disks also become accessible through your computers.
So feature wise, the WD TV Live is pretty great but it can feel rather sluggish at times, occasionally crash and the software is nowhere near the quality something Apple might release.
But I think it still is a more elegant solution that hooking up a computer to your HT system.
