There is currently nothing that comes close to the wide assortment of file formats it can play especially for the price.
Funny you mention that unit, I was reading on it actually after browsing NCIX. It has the new Realtek chip apparently that's twice faster then the PBO or others out there currently so it should have the muscle to deal with any codecs later on also with some updates.

Please do give back comments when you have a chance :)
Is smoke supposed to come out of there?
