Having bought a SB3, it's been interesting to read other posts about the chasm between the quality of SB3/Transporter and the rickety 6.x Slimserver.

Given the growing number of suppliers of UPnP mediaServers and players, this made me wonder just what is the Unique Selling Proposition of Slim Devices?

The J.River Media Centre is way ahead of Slimserver in look & feel, most of the NAS boxes offer am easy route to installing a mediaserver like TwonkyMusic etc.

IMHO, Slimdevices need position themselves for the interoperable mass-market ASAP or risk losing their early-mover advantage as media server s/w become a commodity offering on NAS boxes and the rumoured Windows Home Server.

It's probably about music, not user interfaces.
