    Has anyone heard of, or used this media player? I saw it in my local Memory Express store, and the big eye-catcher was that it was 1080p and it had a built-in SATA HDD slot, and only $99 (no HDD included of course). How convenient! There are a lot of mixed reviews, especially on Amazon, many of them saying the interface is ugly and needs a bit of know-how to get it to work properly. But I think anyone who's jailbroken an ATV before will at least have that know-how.

    I've been using a jailbroken ATV2 with Plex to play my movies but I often experience buffering, which really kills the movie experience especially in key moments of the film. I bought my dad a WDTV Live player with an external HDD to plug in and play movies from there. A little bit more hassle than my always-updating Plex library but can be worth the effort (and the extra bit of space it takes up).

    What do you guys think of it?
