Description: A media center PC can be expensive, even if you build one yourself. What do you really want from such a machine? Primarily, you'd probably like to store media on its hard drive to play through your home entertainment center. If you don't need other typical media center functionality, such as digital video recording and channel guides, the MediaGate MG-350HD might be the device you're looking for.Sort of a souped-up media extender, the MG-350HD is roughly the size of a Nintendo Wii console. It comes with wired and wireless networking, support for all kinds of televisions and stereo systems, and a hollow area into which you can install a hard drive. That's right—it doesn't come with storage, so you'll have to factor in the cost of an IDE drive and add it to the price of the MG-350HD, but on the bright side you can toss in as much or as little storage space as you need. The device has been tested with drives as large as 750GB.The MG-350HD can stream media from a networked PC and play files from its own internal hard drive or an external, USB storage device. Armed with a hard drive, it can also function as a NDAS (Network Direct Attached Storage) device. comes with box/manual/remote control/ndas software for wireless or wired network incl 40gd hdd as bonus/reason for selling upgrading for more reviewshttp://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1558,2112827,00.asp
