My WD HD TV, coupled with a 2.5" drive does all this, is really very portable (and quiet), and at £80 plus £50 for the external drive is alot cheaper. I wouldn't swap for a Lacie.

Have you guys at TR heard of the Xtreamer unit?

Do you think you might get hold of one for review. This unit is causing a bit of a buzz. Seems to answer the HTPC maidens prayers - especially as its only 99 Euros....

My WD-HD-TV comes with me everywhere, the reason i bought it was that it was significantly more portable than an older NEO unit i had, suffered the wrath of an accidental fall onto its side. And i think any hdd unit will suffer the same (regardless of how rugid it may be housed). Personally, i think the more 'protected' the unit is the less careful you are likely to be with it.

Anywhere you can go with a USB stick you can take the WD-HD-TV. Been to US and Germany with it and its just booked a well earned 2 week holiday to Spain for itself! :)

2 * 16Gb usb keys gets me, Series 2 of Private Practice for her, Entourage 1-5 for me and hours of Handy Manny et al for junior... thats portability!

I can't wait for 128Gb keys to become readily available, it'll save me the weight of all those extra heavy and cumbersome usb keys!!!! :)
