Agreed, they are great, especially for a second set, bedroom set etc. For the 
living room I prefer a more "full-featured" frontend, but that's me.

You also get a working remote, and, as you say, for less than you would spend 
for just the RAM in a conventional frontend.

I'm waiting for something similar to come along that will do HD, either by 
design or a jeeped device designed for something else. I guess the Mac Mini 
or possible the Apple TV are the closest so far, but they are still pricey.
