can you suggest what is better:-
1) buying a combo nas + media player like WD HUB?
2) buying a media streaming box(like WD LIVE etc) and a 1 TB usb hard drive and connecting it to WD live and use it as a NAS and media server?
3) some other setup which can fulfill my requirement in the same price range.
i am a very basic user, i just want a NAS and a media streamer (which can play all major formats) which i will connect to my av receiver and projector. So my major concern is the transfer speeds(all transfers will be wireless) i would get while transferring movie files from the laptop. i currently have a CISCO LINKSYS EA 4500 ROUTER which supports upto 450 mbps but i would be getting 300mbps because of the laptop wifi adaptor limitation.
as i said earlier i am a very general user and would be focusing on only playing movies and watching photos on the projector. i probably wont be using any of the online streaming services.
any and every help would be highly appreciated
