Great piece of kit. Acts as a NAS drive, but has the bonus of being able to play everything from it stright onto the TV. If you don't own a NAS drive. Get one of these instead. If you do own a NAS drive - time to upgrade and have the ability to view photo's / movies and play MP3's on your TV system. No more sitting round a laptop to show off your latest holiday photo's, just use the remote to change the channel to the Cyclone and start the slideshow. (ideal as a back up for your photo collection). Oh and it has 2 USB ports so you can have two drives connected and both are also then made available on the network.
