The World Edition Live is actually better,

1st, its cheaper at £70

2nd, its got a USB expansion port

I think the LIVE has issues with Twonky...while the World had it fixed...don't quote me on it

I believe the original had issues with twonky, which are fixed in firmware updates.

The world edition is ok for the price, however, the newer My book live is over twice as fast read/writes. So I guess it depends on what you're looking for to suit your needs

It also (but I don't have a world edition to compare) has a much faster Ajax based web front end than the old version had.

Is it really faster? I wasn't sure, the World transfers at about 2mbps wirelessly which is crap

I plugged mine into my computer via Ethernet, transferred all my data, then set it up, I pretty much only use mine for the PS3 to stream content

Oh wow yes in that case it was much faster than that!

I had mine connected via ethernet 10/100 to the router, and transferred data from my imac over wireless N. Writes were about 65mbps and reads 70mbps.
