I picked up my Ultio last week despite the internal drive issues as all of my content is on a D-LINK DNS-323. So far the Ultio has worked well connected over a wired network to the DNS-323. The DNS-323 has issues of it's own that you can tweak around if you install the funplug "hack" to access the linux interface.
The Ultio has played most of the content that I have without any problems. The only real issue that I have had is it can't decode the audio on the video files of my Canon Camera.
As others have mentioned the interface could be a little cleaner to view files, but I actually like the Ultio interface better than the MG-350 that I was using. It would be nice if you could program keys to go directly to folders for music, photo's and video.
The fan on my unit is actually quite loud and I don't ever turn the unit off, but with my setup it doesn't really matter. I have all my "hardware" (XBox 360, Ultio, Cable Box) in the basement connected to a component matrix switcher that feeds the 2 LCD screens I have.
I am controlling everything with a logitech 880. As mentioned earlier in this thread I had to learn a few buttons that were missing from the profile supplied by Logitech. (mainly the "ok" button and I created some custom keys for setup etc)
I guess I will have to run it for 2 months to see if the gremlins kick in that others have seen,
