And my issue is that you MUST have a computer to transcode the media instead of just storing your files on a simple network disk. What many don't realize is that if you want subtitles (like many of us non-English peeps do) PMS can't simply rewrap h264 content but instead has to recompress the video to a bandwidth hungry MPEG2-stream in realtime which means that you can't use it over wireless LAN and you'll need a fast quadcore-machine or a CUDA-accelerated h264-decoder (like CoreAVC) for 1080P streams.
Understand me right, I use mine all the time but one can't really say that the PS3 is a great media player since it depends entirely on PMS. And, at least my Slim is rather noisy while playing, enough to annoy during more silent parts.
