I also added another 2GB stick of memory for $25, which I'm not sure was necessary. After all of those steps, I am now playing 1080p with ease and streaming full 1080p from the internet and my NAS without a hitch. Now that I have done it once, I could get this to run as desired in an hour or two. There are some very good guides on the interwebs for each of these steps. However, without knowing where to start getting everything to function properly took some effort, a fair amount of time googling and a bit of frustrartion. With the right software the Atom/ION combination works very well in a tiny energy efficient package, but it took some steps to get there. If you are looking for a pure plug and play ready device, you might want to consider going with a higher power machine in a bigger box. If you are willing to put a little bit of work into getting the system optimized (hopefully some of the steps above prove helpful), this is a good alternative to bigger or higher priced machines.
the box is always on so there is little wait to use it.
i bought the cideko air keyboard to control the computer from the couch. a line of sight path to computer is not required and it has no connection maintenance problems like other remote keyboards. after about 30 minutes experimenting with the mouse function, i find it very easy to use. an excellent wireless keyboard in important for high quality couch control.
the small box is quite and sits unobtrusively behind the tv.
although the 2gb supplied memory has been adequate, i couldn't resist and just bought additional 2gb for $34.
my samsung ln52b750's rudimentary network access ability was frustrating for me. i am very happy with the eee box.
