I replaced a 4600 (65W) with a BE-2350, and it works well for the most part.
There are occasional NVP prebuffering pauses, a few more than the 4600 had,
and I can't play 1080i content at 1.2x like I could with the 4600 - 720p
does 1.2x fine. I would like a BE-2400, 200MHz faster, but that's another
$100 and I would have a spare CPU sitting around after I swap the 2350 for
the 4200 (65W) in my windoze box. Already sold the 4600 to a friend. And now
I am "afraid" that there will be a BE-2450 or BE-2500 if I buy a BE-2400,
since the BE-2400 wasn't out when I got the 2350. For now I'll live with it.
