I was combing through YouTube yesterday and an ad came up for this thing from Brennan.
Normally I wait the lousy 5 seconds and click the Skip Ad button, but this one I actually watched for the whole 1:30.
Seems like a pretty decent way to access/save music, it supposedly can rip CDs directly to the internal HD, other options as well. For less than 5 bills a 500gb version can be had.

Opinions?
So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    What does it do that one cannot do with a 'pute (and keep $500 smackers in one's pocket)?

    PS The above is meant as a legitimate question, not snark. I..e., what is the value add over stuff (hard- and software) one might already have on hand?

    I already run a Squeezebox Duet, fed from a networked PC; no complaints about it other than an occasional buffer issue (seems like my new router eliminated that).
    This thing just looked intriguing, I might be tempted to do an A/B with it, but I do wish the price was a bit lower.

    The few reviews that were posted on Amazon were not favorable. I suggest you keep looking.

    The USB ports are labelled "USB A", "USB B", and "USB C", but judging from their size and shape, all 3 are USB A ports.
