The Zensonic is a Sigma-based player and thus has all of the issues that comes with that chipset. The interface also cannot be extended and does not use thumbnails for video selection. It cannot handle high-bitrate files streamed correctly either.
I've been reading the threads on the AVS Forums regarding the N35. It seems that there has not been much success playing back HD mpeg 2 files with high bitrates (10-18 Mbps). What has your experience been with these type files?
Has anyone tried the TVIX HD M-5000U? The specs look good.

Can the N35 play DVDs in ISO or VOB format or do you have to tinker with your file structure to get them to play correctly?
I ditched my HD1000 and went to a modded Xbox and have never looked back. But if HD is important to you then this isn't an option. I realize that most of the HD1000 users used it due to it's HD functionality.

By the way - I've got a perfectly good HD1000 revA (with a compact flash card that boots automatically to provide more memory) just sitting around. I keep saying that I'm going to sell it on Ebay but I've just been too lazy to do it.
If someone is interested just PM me and maybe we can work something out.
