I understand, and you'll note that in the review I addressed the fact that some media, less commercially available, is beyond the capabilities of the E350. For netflix, hulu, youtube, CBS/FOX etc., DVD and BluRay, Brazos is a capable HTPC platform. For media using higher quality encodes or 'non-standard' (as in, not in the BluRay spec) then the software hasn't caught up yet - these are outlier or corner cases. They can be addressed one of two ways, optimized software for the platform or more platform power. The Llano APU addresses the platform power angle, more than your baseline, so that's a plus, but it's also more expensive.

Everybody's HTPC needs are different, and the E-350 gives you an option. There are other options available, of course.
