Ok, I'm over dealing with the PS3's unreliable media playback. Even with PS3 Media Server I can't play back half of my Blu-ray rips (Make MKV). Plex on the other hand has NO issues with any of my media. I'm going to bite the bullet and drop the cheddar on a Mini. Considering I'm going to be watching Blu-ray rips is there any reason I would need the 2.53 Mini or will the entry level option provided me with a flawless presentation. I'm only going to be using it for a Plex box. I've got a Mac Pro to handle everything else.
