I gotta say, I'm loving the PS3 as a media server. I only hooked it up 4 days ago and I'm not a big gamer, but I'm pretty impressed. I've installed TVersity on my pc (very simple and very effective) and I also use WMP. I'm streaming all my music, photo's and videos to the home theatre wirelessly. I also got an appropriate keyboard and can comfortably surf the web from my lounge using the HT (although the browser isn't real great).
I'm currently living o/s so I'm also rapt to be able to stream my "hometown" radio stations to my HT. Again, I'm having a few minor issues with disconnection but I'm hoping that if it's a PS3 fault it'll be fixed with one of the updates they regularly put out.
In the end I guess your satisfaction with the PS3 will depend on what you want it for and whether there's other pieces of kit out there that do the same job better for less money. I wanted it for hi-def dvd's, media streaming and internet surfing, with gaming being an added bonus.
If the two issues I mentioned can be sorted out (by me if it's my set-up or by Sony if it's the PS3's fault) I'll be a very happy camper!
In any event, do your research and make an informed decision based on your own needs. Good luck.
