Hey I've developed a high quality porn displaying machine. For around $14,000 I can get you a "porn center" that will allow you to receive nearly unlimited amounts of high quality porn for free and store it in a space the size of a small dog. It's called a computer. PM me for details and special offers.
pppffff. With $14K I would expect a media server to have a robotic arm to pick up disks from my shelve and deposit it into a drive and rip, tag, sort, save everything in order while I play with my prick all day.
It does have severe limitations as well though - its all very well having a fantastic gui for the media library - just a shame there's no way to actually add films to the library using the device since it wont record encrypted material, which basically means you have to extract and decrypt any dvd / bluray on a pc, burn it onto a disc then rip it using the MS1 to its library - sounds like a total ball-ache to me.

Well, it depends on the storage solution. Most of the people here are going to think 'hmm, i could do better with $50 SATA drives' but don't understand the price/performance difference with 15k rpm SAS drives + 512MB-1GB of write back cache, etc unless they work around such devices.
It makes me want to gouge my eyes out when I go to the storage section of the forums and see a post about 4 HDDs in RAID0, ten responses with nobody even mentioning RAID1+0 having similar performance and offering redundancy.
