    • John,

      Mine's coming next week so I will do a full review and let you know, although I havent played around with the HD-200. They will ship it to the US I believe.


  1. I've ordered one too!

    At the moment I'm using an HDD based media player, but am also streaming video and music from 2 dedicated HDD's in a desktop with shared folders which has worked well on our laptops. Fingers crossed this combines the two together.

    In fact – it was this trawl through the net to find a streamer that led me to your site and the whole WHS thing, which has got me hooked. I'd never heard of it before!

    I've an older redundant PC that matches the specs required (I hope) so I know what my next project will be. And if anyone asks it will be a copy of your book for christmas! Expect perhaps a few questions on the forum Andrew.

    Oh, and great site/blog/service you've got here. Love the 'on a friday night' pieces. One day I'll have my future WHS integrated into all aspects of my house!

    • Cool – mine is supposed to arrive today as well 🙂

      I will play with it for a bit then get a review up for all those who havent ordered one yet!
