Is this any good though?

How does this compare to the WD player?

This is interesting, in the manual it mentions about support for AV streaming but no details, I bought a PS3 just for this functionality so this could be an interesting buy for some. But a review would be welcome

In comparison to the WD player this appears to have similar features but has ethernet built in. To connect the WD player to a network you have to buy a compatible usb/ethernet adaptor and flash with a hacked firmware and network streaming speed is limited which can cause problems streaming HD files. I would like to see a review too but it does sound promising I was considering one of the Acer Revos but they don't have optical out so I couldn't use my current amp. The manual discusses browsing remote shares and uPNP. emtec-international.com/PDF…pdf

you still have to buy an adaptor & there's no remote.

There is a remote with the unit according to the manual. I don't know what you mean by an adaptor the unit has ethernet built in and you can use a usb dongle if you want wifi however I suspect wireless might struggle with HD video.

Any ideas when this is released? I couldnt find any info @ play?

I spoke with Emtec and it should be released before the end of the month. It does come with remote and the WIFI will be draft N so it should run at 300mps. Needs to be used with their USB WIFI stick or a comparable version with Realtek chip set.
