Vcook...Popcorn hour question

Hey Vcook. I'm looking at the new Popcorn C-300. I love that it has the ability to download torrents on its own and can store its own 2.5 and 3.5" hard drives. It's pretty pricey though at $400 after taxes and shipping. I'm also noticing my TV can do more and more with apps and ability to handle video files from a HD. What do you think about these things now? Still worth the money? What are some of the best features they have that you love?

I'm busy this morning, I'll circle back on this later and give you my 2 cents.


What do you WANT to do?

What I would like
-Ability to download torrents locally, unzip/unrar them if needed, and be able to play them
-it would be great if I could search for torrents
-Store all my movies locally
-RiP my DVDs & Blueray disks to a hard drive
- Network to my files stored on a network either with windows or a Mac

What i'm really interested though is what other functionality you love that I might not even realize how cool/useful it is.

I like cheese popcorn, with caramel corn coming in a close second.

I have the popbox but I use it exclusively for streaming content on my own network so I'm not a good measuring stick. I have no interest in cloud content at this point and I don't download any torrents. It's great for the kids though, no disks for them to trash and nice flashy screen from them to pick from via large thumbnails.
