I see. So it looks like the main difference between the 1000X and 600X is that the 1000X allows for an internal HDD along with a USB 3.0 connection, correct? Other than that, it appears they play the same types of files, formats, etc. So for about $70 bucks less, that's not too shabby!
I believe I read that if you have an external usb 2.0 drive connected to the device and you're playing full 3D iso's, you'll be ok, correct? So no lagging, skipping, or audio drop outs correct? I'm asking because I may have to pick up the 600X for downstairs as the tv is 3d, but I always watch my 3d content upstairs. Then once I see more reviews on the PCH A400, it'll let me know if I want to purchase the 1000x3D or A400 upstairs.
Man, this is super tempting. I've been waiting awhile to get a good 3d iso media streamer w/o having to pickup an htpc.
So if playing 3d iso's via usb 2.0 works correctly, can anyone let me know what other benefits there would be of having a usb 3.0 vs usb 2.0 on these devices to playback your content? I guess if you have gigabit ethernet, which I do, you can copy files off your network and onto the usb 3.0 attached to the mede8er much faster than usb 2.0? Then I guess for personal preference, some prefer an internal hdd vs an external connection, and that would be the only other benefit of the 1000x vs 600x?
