I love the WDTV HUB, have filled the drive and wraped it up for my 2nd son. Planed to pick up another when the microcenter ad arrived.

Intel

X25-V SSDSA2MP040G2K5 2.5" 40GB SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I went with a Intell low power SSD and have been putting it into every desktop and laptop I have collected since 95 (Including a Panasonic CF-25 toughbox 120 megahertz running windows ME that I use as a media player and a platform to run ancient DOS games on.) The speed of everything especially boot times are blowing my mind. Oh and did i mention it ran playing the same movie over and over for almost two days straight before dying. The best it could do before was a little over twelve. Will get around to putting it in the ZBOX and posting more soon.
